Service is always attentive and they were very accommodating when I was using a knee scooter and was a bit challenged getting around.

Our fantastic weekend in Athens started with dinner at DePalma's. We had an early reservation and were seated near the kitchen. Had I known the layout, I would have asked to be seated on the entrance side because of the noise level by the cooking. The smells were wonderful but we could barely hear each other talk! Michelle was our... More

Delicious food and good service. They do take reservations, so make them if you are going during a busy night or to an event at the Classic Center. Their pizza is terrific, and the breadstick appetizer is my favorite.

Dropped in here without reservations and were seated promptly. Our waitress, Meredith, was great and helped us select our entrees. I got the Mahi Mahi special and it was excellent. My friends got the lemon scallops and lasagna specials. We all truly enjoyed our meals.Btw we also got salads that were tasty. For dessert I got Irish coffee and the... More

We were in town for the Ron White concert and decided to eat at DePalma's. Great choice on our part. We have eaten there before but we wanted our friends to experience it since they had never been. We had the Pasta DePalma, Eggplant Florentine, Pan Fried Mascarpone Ravioli & Grilled Artichoke, cocktails, and cheesecake. It was all excellent. We... More

This is not my favorite Italian restaurant, we have tried it on 3 separate occasions now (dinner) and it was just blah each time. Certainly not awful but just not prepared well. Quality wise it is more on the level of Applebee's or Chili's. With all that said, you can go for lunch and get "salad and a slice" for... More

We like De Palma's. We have been eating there for years and it is always consistent. The menu has most of the more traditional Italian items and a few nightly specials. The breadsticks are great.

Very fresh and tasty Italian fare. This is not Olive Garden style faux Italian. They offer pasta, seafood, chicken dishes and pizzas and all are always very good. There are several locations and they each have a slightly different menu. My favorite location in terms of menu and food preparation is on the east side. My favorite in terms of... More
