For a local Italian restaurant, the food and atmosphere are second to none. My wife and I have made DePalmas our date night for the past year. Each time we enter we are greater with a smile and a hello. The food is terrific, cooked with and from moms heart. Little pricey, however it is worth it. Reservations are reccomended... More

Just went here last week. I had a very good experience. I had a starter of potato soup. It was homemade and piping hot. I can't tell you how nice it was to have homemade soup at a restaurant. The next course was the salad. It was one of the best starter salads I have had in a long time.... More

Went there over the weekend - looks like an old Pizza Hut location. Our meals were very average, especially considering the pricing was above average. We had a large group, so that probably explains the slow service. Italian food is my favorite, and this was disappointing. Several people in our group made the same comment.

Great experience, need a reservation. Good wine list. Meals well priced. Veal Parmesan was like cutting butter, mushroom ravioli delicious. All six of us had great meals. The bread is addicting. Deserts wonderful, all in all a little jewel on a busy street. Don't let the location put you off, food is wonderful.

I had never been to De Palma's, I had only heard great things. I took my kids on a week night, the place had plenty of empty tables but I was looked down on because I didn't have a reservation. The service was really slow, the food was less than okay and the pricing was horrible. The atmosphere was a... More

We arrived very late on a Tuesday evening. The wait staff was wonderful. The "hats" entre is remarkable - huge portion - can easily be split with two. Very unique beers. The cappuccino machine was broken - so no espresso. Very nice location for good Italian food.

Have eaten here several times and introduced our small group from church and now we eat there at least 3 times a month together.nice that you can split a meal. Lasagna is the best and wonderful desserts. Great service.

I stopped in for dinner while in town for business and had nice meal. Not amazing, but good. Pleasant waiter and a good menu with a few specials. Wine list is pretty basic and low end but you can find some good pairings.

My Family and I visited Depalma's last week and could not have been happier. One of the best dining experiences I have had. A small, quaint restaurant with a great atmosphere. Our experience from beginning to end was terrific. Unbelievable food (generous portions) and great service. Highly recommend and can't wait to return.

While on business in Indy, I stopped into this small restaurant that was packed with locals the night I went, so I knew it was going to be good. The staff was great. My portion was so generous that I had to take some home. I highly recommend this place especially if you are staying on the east side.
