Always a stop when I am in town for a while. Fresh food - bread, salads and pasta with good size portions. Went with friends - 4 different entrees all with a thumbs up - classic Italian dishes prepared well. Good attentive staff makes it a winner.

We went to Depalmas during a conference. We were a big group, with a reservation that got lost, but they handled us easily. The staff was pleasant. The food was good. We had a variety of pastas and salads. The chicken special was unique.

This restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere and friendly staff. The walls are lined with classic old-school memorabilia and empty wine bottles with notes written on them from past customers who clearly had a great time celebrating birthdays and get-togethers there.

My husband and I have been coming regularly for several years. All of our special occasions have been celebrated at depalmas. I have been to each location too many times to count and honestly have never once had an experience that was less than exceptional. Even now when we occasionally bring our toddler along, staff always makes us feel like... More

We have consistently enjoyed all meals here. Good food and prompt service. We have enjoyed lunch and dinner over many years. Be sure and make reservations as it is a popular place to break bread with family and friends.

You can never go wrong at DePalmas. Their chicken piccata is excellent. Service is always excellent. We go to the location near Cedar Shoals to avoid the downtown crowds. Never had their pizza but it looks awesome.

Tucked away off of Timothy Rd is our favorite location for DePalma's. Plenty of parking, ample booth sizes, and outstanding food. Certainly as good as downtown. I strongly recommend this restaurant especially for couples or no more than four people. Excellent food and service.

The pasta tasted "homemade" and the stuffed mushrooms were exceptionally good. David, our waiter, went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed to make our evening special.

My wife and I have eatern here before, but it had been a while. The wait was short, the staff was pleasant and attentive. Our server made some great recommendations, from salads to entrees. Food was excellent, service was superb. Price was very reasonable. We're heading back soon.

We had a great dinner and great service for a party of 9 (make reservations if you have a large party) in one of the large booths with a table extension. This a classic stop for anyone visiting Athens, going to the University of Georgia, or living in the area. The menu is comprised of some traditional Italian fare, along... More
