Great food! Their pizza is to die for. We got their house pizza and it was probably the best pizza I have ever had in Athens. Wonderful service too.

We live within 1 mile of DePalmas so go here all the time. It is always dependably good and way above average. Their pizza's are fantastic. Best sandwich - the Grilled Chicken Cuban on Ciabatta bread. Best salad - Apple, walnut salad. Ask them to add grilled shrimp or scallops on top and it's a beautiful meal. Best salad dressing,...

I went with a large party, and we still had great service! The specials and regular menu items were all delicious. I had a blackened chicken lasagna. The prices were very reasonable as well.

I have been going to the DePalma's downtown for decades. It is always my favorite place to take someone special.

This has been our go to Athens dinner place. The risotto was perfect, scallops cooked well, but a bit under seasoned. The pizza was good as always, and our salad dressed perfectly. I have few complaints on this place.

I recently moved to Athens, GA and ate at De Palma's for the first time. It was nice to eat at an Italian restaurant different than Olive Garden. There is a wide variety of items on the menu. Prices are medium. I have been three times now and ordered the cheese calzone two of the times. There are three locations... More

Had fish with freezer burn two times in a row! Not okay. Unless you're a pasta addict, try somewhere else.

Great selection of food of all kinds. If you can't stand any spice, as me, then you will find a good selection here. If you like spices then you will also find things you want. Great atmosphere, friendly service.

I like the DePalmas downtown, it has a fun ambience and the food is consistently good. The wait staff are friendly without being too friendly. The portions a big and the food is served hot. The prices are good for the standard.
