My wife and I ate there recently while traveling. It was our third visit to this restaurant but the first time we tried the pizza. We could watch it being tossed and cooked and were surprised at the large size of our medium pizza. The crust was perfectly cooked and our toppings well distributed and adequate in amount. Service was... More

DePalma's used to be a place my husband and I went on a date before we had children. Today we took them (8yrs and11yrs) along with our local parents for a birthday celebration.

The best Italian food...my family has eaten here for most occasions, birthdays, anniversaries, date night, Sunday lunch. It is so good for any reason! If you ask, they will give you child some pizza dough to play with at the table. If you don't get there early, be prepared to wait!

Visiting Tuscaloosa and found reviews for DePalma's so I thought I'd try it out. I am SO glad I did. It's off of University in the downtown area, which has great vibes & lots of revitalization going on. It's not a big place so it's nice & cozy. There is a bar area near the entrance. I went at 5:45... More

Beyond our expectations. On route to The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, we stopped to eat at DePalma's. Oh how sooooo very good. Very relaxed atmosphere. My wife and I had the DePalma's Deluxe medium pizza (which is like a large at many other restaurant) along with a chicken Calzone. Both were large portions, very fresh and... More
