I truly enjoyed dining here, wish they would take reservations. The long wait out side in the heat was a bit overwhelming but dinner was great, and the street musician was fun and entertaining. I will definitely be back. Service was wonderful and very helpful with the wine list.

We were in Tuscaloosa for a conference at the University of Alabama. We went early to make sure we got a seat without waiting (4:15 p.m.) We were seated immediately. Very attentive waiter, he never let our iced tea glasses get empty. I had the Lasagna of the day which was delicious. My friend had the Lobster ravioli which she... More

Fun, a bit loud atmosphere located in Downtown Tuscaloosa, De Palmas has character, like an Italian restaurant should with high ceilings, big windows basked in light, cafe tables, stone floor and a New York Pizza joint feel. Did I mention the wine selection? Small bar in the entry. Often a wait so call ahead. Lasagna my weakness there~

After a long day at a conference at the University of Alabama, a colleague and I just wanted good pizza and cold beer. We decided on DePalma's because it was so close to our hotel and we could get handmade pizza. We ordered a large veggie pizza, but the waiter encouraged us to order the medium, because it would be...

Best pasta in the city! Can never go wrong with one of their lasagna. Also great wine selection and intimate setting. Got to get their early or be prepared to wait to be seated, but worth the wait.

My family and I ate at Depalma's Italian Cafe on Friday, July 10, 2015. It is a delightful restaurant in downtown Tuscaloosa not far from the University of Alabama campus. We celebrated a birthday while we were there. We arrived a little late for dinner and the rush was beginning to slow down. We ordered the house Cabernet, and it... More

Must eat if you're in Tuscaloosa. Lines are always long, so know that going in. But it is worth the wait. Lasagna of the day is always awesome, but the carnivore is a standout.

The first time we ate at DePalma's it was very good. The second time, not so good. I ordered lasagna and it was dry and tasteless. My wide ordered a pasta dish and asked for grated Parmesan. The waiter stated the dish already contained Parmesan, but we asked for additional anyway. We did not not realize there was an extra... More
