The food is good at DePalma's, service is very good, and except for excessive noise on crowded nights, the ambiance is right. The prices are a little high but not a deal breaker. For... read more

Amazing food and service, every time. The atmosphere here is the best in Tuscaloosa. Prices are very reasonable for fantastic cuisine and the wine list is a perfect compliment.

It was our first time on a recent stop. I missed not going to the Cypress Inn, but DePalma's was a pleasant surprise and would go again.

This was our second visit, the first visit was during a visit to see the university and my son wanted to test the pizza. The second was for orientation, enough said. Food was very good and great service.

It's food is fine and the atmosphere is good. Old drugstore. It is just nothing special. For Tuscaloosa, not bad. Tuscaloosa is not running over with great Italian restaurants. You will not be disappointed but you won't be singing it's praises either

Everyone ordered something off a different portion of the menu and we were all very pleased with our selection. I had the cesar salad with salmon and it was so wonderful. Our waiter was polite and very... More

The entire family loves this place. It is consistently good. The regular menu is varied, and their specials offer something for those with more complex tastes. Get there early, because the dinner hour is always busy.
