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.

My family and I went to this restaurant because my granddaughter loves Italian food. I had De Palmer Pasta....worst pasta ever. No seasoning on the angel hair pasta, my daughter has the cheese ravioli. The ravioli were cold when they finally arrived. When she told the waitress she took it back and nuked it. This made this dish even worse.... More

Lovely ambiance and the food is delicious. The larger space is a welcome change since it was always so packed.

Good food, excellent service, quiet atmosphere. A step above a pizza parlor (although the pizza is excellent) and removed from the craziness of a college town (although it is located right across from the University of Georgia campus). Everything was well prepared, served quickly, and reasonably priced. will become a mainstay of our trips to Athens.

Loved the complimentary bread and the bread sticks with sausage, onions, cheese and spinach. Could make a meal on that. Each one of the 4 of us ordered a different entree and we all loved it.
