Good food, friendly service

We had a wonderful bottle of wine, split a walnut apple salad, and split a large mushroom and three cheese pizza. It was all very good. The pizza was laden with three different types of mushrooms -- they were very generous with the toppings on the pizza. Sat outside on a perfect weather night... read more

This is a Collage town restaurant and they do not have to be great. The service was slow and the hostess was not very nice. The food was just ok. Will not go back.

The front desk of our hotel recommended De Palmas. We came on a busy Thursday evening and ate at the bar. Our service was fair and the food was only OK. It might have been better to sit at a proper dining table. The pasta was cool when it was served, and over cooked. While the crust and sauce of... More

We were in town for the G day game and decided to try De Palma's for dinner on Friday night. We were seated immediately as entering in a booth toward the back. The server was very friendly and recommended a bottle of wine that we enjoyed. We didn't realize that bread came with the meals and we ordered the breadsticks.... More

I have enjoyed meals at De Palma's for years now and it is always on my list of go-to restaurants when I am in Athens. I have only been to the downtown location, which has grown and expanded over the years. You can create a pizza that is awesome or a calzone that will be difficult to finish in one... More

De Palma's is a jewel of a restaurant in Athens. We arrived about 9:00 pm on Friday 3/27, and it was still packed. I must say that it was worth the wait. We had a nice Greek salad and some of De Palma's crusty bread while we waited for dinner. My Pasta De Palma was excellent. The cream sauce had... More

This is a really nice restaurant in Athens and serves solid Italian food. The service is good and the atmosphere is inviting. The pasta is not handmade and the food is not fussy, but it is always well prepared and tasty.
