Great service, good wine, delicious food

First time here. Restaurant sits on a main avenue of Athens directly across from UGA. Pleasant homey atmosphere inside.

First time here. Restaurant sits on a main avenue of Athens directly across from UGA. Pleasant homey atmosphere inside. Our waitress was exceptionally professional: quick, smart, good knowledge of wines. We went old style simple for a change and had spaghetti with Bolognese sauce which was excellently seasoned. Generous but not obscenely large portions. Too good to leave any behind... More

Pasta DePalma is very tasty, creamy sauce, well cooked pasta. The Seafood Charmaine is outstanding, service is attentive but not intrusive. One of our go to restaurants in Athens.

First of all, I want to clarify that this review is for De Palma's Italian Café - Westside which is on Timothy Rd. We live locally so it is the restaurant in their group that is closest. Next, we come here regularly as a couple & often with guests. Having said that, over the years we have collectively had everything... More

My colleagues and I have been having a weekly lunch at the downtown DePalma's for a while. I would recommend their lunch lasagna, it comes with a tiny salad, but it's a good sized lunch. The kind of lasagna varies from day to day, so make sure you know what it is if you have preferences. The food is ok... More

Reviewing because we were disappointed to arrive and learn that this Italian restaurant does not offer Chicken Parmesan, or for that matter (at least according to bartender that helped us with a take-out order, tomato sauce!)

Took family and friends out for a girl's night. The atmosphere was perfect, quiet but casual. The food was wonderful with perfect portions for sharing.
