Pizza good but others average

Downtown close to UGA. Parking can be an issue. Large restaurant but not easy to make reservation. Deco very old style and seats. Menu is quite simple but surprisingly no beef. Margarita pizza is very good. Depalma pasta baked with angel hair and sausage too cheesy and very different. Port... read more

We have dined here a handful of times while visiting Athens and always enjoy our experience. Great pizza, salads and specialty dishes.

We celebrated my daughter's 19th bday last night at De Palma's with 16 of her friends. Our server, Lindsay, was amazing, handling this large group with ease. She suggested a fantastic sampling of appetizers that the girls just loved. All of the meals were so delicious. The price was surprisingly fair. I will definitely go back!

My son and I ate here on a recent golf vacation trip, and we loved it. Big thick delicious pasta and tasty bread. My son had basic spaghetti and I had chicken. Kinda pricey though but service was good and food was piping hot. We will eat there again. Gonna try the pizza. It seemed as if a lot of... More

I love the pizza, the salads, the cheesecakes & any recipe they make with eggplant. The service is consistently good. And this restaurant is one of the few in which you have enough privacy to carry on a lengthy conversation without having to shout due to bad acoustics or loud music.

I've dined at this established restaurant many times the only thing I wish is the cost would come down. It has various Italian pasta dishes, 3 very lovely salads and of course pizza. Tip: on Wednesdays they discount pizza 25%!!! try it you'll like it.

Best bruschetta we've had in years. Shrimp Charmaine dinner was excellent and so was the chicken scallopini. Reasonable prices and very good service.

De Palma's make some of the best pizza in Athens! The flavors and style is perfect, and the seasoning meets all pizza requirements. A large is enough to feed a couple college guys, so and the price matches the high quality. Way better than "fast food" pizza.
