We dined here while visiting the university as it was highly recommended. It was good, but not great. My husband had the Pasta Depalma and it was a bit bland. I had the salmon which came with a side of spinach pasta and marinara. The Salmon was good, but the marinara was excellent. My son had a pasta with marinara,... More

I started eating at DePalma's in high school with family, and now have my husband hooked on it as well! It's our favorite, and literally everything on the menu is delicious. I highly recommend the stuffed mushrooms and the Pasta Depalma. Always great service, clean, and cozy atmosphere. The wait sometimes is the only downfall, but the food is worth... More

Was a delightful experience, had lasagna with pepperoni and several cheeses which I cannot pronounce and the special carnivore pasta in a red cream sauce. Staff was very attentive.

My husband and I had our 1st date here over 15 years ago. We love it. I love the sasuage breadsticks and he usually gets the pasta DePlama. They have a great wine selection.

8:30 on a Sunday night when students are on break is not a favorable time to try to find a good meal but I hit the jackpot with Depalma's. Going on a friend's recommendation, I was having trouble deciding between several things. The waiter (Kevin?) was very patient and even after I ordered something else, I could tell he wanted...

I thoroughly enjoyed the spinach Florentine lasagna special. Fresh ingredients and so flavorful it was truly one of the best lasagna's I've ever enjoyed, and I've had many. Service was very good, as well as the ambiance. I highly recommend dining here.

DePalmas is always a great meal. From atmosphere to wine selection to menu items. Ordered stuffed mushrooms and chicken Alfredo. Great meal, atmosphere in a comfortable setting.

My daughter brought us to this restaurant one weekend while we were visiting. This is her favorite place in Tuscaloosa and after eating there, I agree. My wife and daughter had the pasta with marinara sauce and I had a caesar salad and calzone. The food was fresh and very good. The homemade caesar dressing was fantastic!

I had an excellent Ceasar salad to begin, followed by filet with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Steak was perfect, thick, lean and cooked right-mashed potatoes were Italiano and excellent as...
