Ate here with some friends and our 2 eldest children while passing through Tuscaloosa. We shared the stuffed bread stick appetizer, a large pizza and a slice of cheesecake, and still had a to go box. All the food was great and the kids loved getting to see the guy throw the dough and make our pizza. Nice place, worth... More

Thanks again, TA reviewers! We have never been to Tuscaloosa before so wanted to try a local favorite. We're picky about Italian food and theirs was tasty. My husband and I shared the DePalma House Salad - lots of good stuff including various olives, mushrooms, red onions, grape tomatoes and best of all, creamy balsamic dressing and shaved mozzarella. I... More

Pasta DePalma with artichokes is one of my favorite dishes at this restaurant. The combination of al dente pasta, tangy artichokes and melted cheese is fantastic! Come early on a weekend, or be prepared to wait for a bit.

I have to eat gluten-free due to celiac disease so i was nervous about the limited selections in an Italian restaurant. I ordered the steak and figured it would be ok. It melted in my mouth! Best steak in Tuscaloosa! The potatoes were excellent as well. My husband loves the bread with sausage and onions in it as well as... More

We went for lunch on a Thursday. Walked in and we were seated immediately. Very interesting place with unique decor--lots of pictures and wine bottles. Loved the big Pharmacy sign. Now on to the food. EXCELLENT. We started with the Caesar salad and I have to say it was probably the best Caesar salad I have ever eaten. The dressing... More

Went here based on TriipAdvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. Couldn't get in until 9 on a Friday night, not a game weekend fortunately - we took the advice of other reviews and just waited until later and then were seated immediately although it was the only empty table in the restaurant. Everything we had was good - the Caesar, veal... More

We came here on a busy weekend and the staff was able to handle the crowds. The food was good and the wine list would meet anyone's taste. It is not what I consider "real" Italian but would eat here again.
