Sumptuous dining the old fashion Italian way.

First this restaurant is gorgeous. It's very quaint. When you are there you think you are in the middle of an antique store. There are chandeliers, dolls, paintings, knick knacks, silver ornaments, candelabras, etc. all around you. The tables are large and seat many. Must go here with at least 4... read more

Homemade Italian food in a setting where everything is for sale. Lots of antiques to look at as you eat. Mama de Palma started this and it continues with great pastas, veal dishes and you can bring your own wine, which is a great plus. Great local place to visit!

Need to revisit your childhood memories of the quintessential southern Italian family restaurant? Consider Di Palma! Great food, take-home sized portions, fun ambiance. Each dish is prepared to order...so quick in and out service is not their forte. You will not be disappointed. Noting prior reviews...Yes, parking is limited on Saturday night, but what good restaurant in an urban setting... More

This was one of the more unique places I've dined at. Not a bad thing, just different. Parking first off is not plentiful. We parked across the street in a closed store lot. I'm not sure if there other spots near that patrons could park. I didn't nor inquire about it. They're open from Tues-Sundays. Closed on Mondays. Lunch from... More

The food was amazing and the atmosphere was fun! A little bit of Italy in an antique shop! Once you find it and parking it is totally worth it! BYOB!

An unbelievably great evening. The atmosphere is superb...eclectic...unique and comfortable. The service is unhurried and professional. The food is outrageously good. There were five of us in our group. We ordered platters of calamari and deep fried fennel (a special that evening) for our appetizer. For the "primi" we shared a Spinach Pasta dish in which the pasta was stuffed... More

So the dining room is combined with an antiques shop. Kind of cool, if you're into that sort of thing. Food was sub-par, and waitstaff was friendly but dressed in dirty jeans/t-shirt combo that was not professional. Portions are large and our server was attentive, but the tomato sauce was seriously disappointing. The rest of the food wasn't bad, but... More

I believe the spelling is Di Palma but I may be wrong. Went here for dinner a few nights ago with some friends. It is a byob and they do not charge for uncorking the wine bottle like some restaurants do. Food is awesome and portions are large. When we sit down they gave us a basket of bread, a... More
