I am a fan of Italian food. DePalma's has a menu full of various types of pasta and each one I tried tasted so good.

Great service, excellent food it is small and great for intimacy, but if crowded awaits can be excessive. The have a good selection but only serve beer and wine. Highly recommended. Definitely consider the specials.

Great food . Tried the first night but the wait was to long so we came back earlier the next night and glad we did. Everything was worth coming back. I just wish they had calamari that is the only bad thing I can say . I would definitely come back again .

Depalma's is wonderful, best Italian restaurant in town. The service is almost as good as the food. I love this place.

The large traditional pizza is very good and plenty for 3-4 people. Service is always very good and timely. It was a full house and can get rather loud, but hey, the food and service make it worth it.

our second time at DePalma's and didn't disappoint. Always a wait for a table, but the food and service is worth it. Looking forward to many more dinners there.

Great staff, warm atmosphere, very popular and has a varied menu. It is, however, almost impossible to find a healthy dish or one not swimming in fats from cheese and oils. If health conscious, be warned.

Every bit as good as the reviews indicate. You will wait a bit but more than worth it. Get the stuffed mushroom app and make sure the pesto-stuffed ones are toward your side of the table as YOU WANT THOSE! Waitstaff super pleasant and exceptionally efficient as they're used to the stuffed restaurant. Can't wait to go back.

Unexpected delightful culinary experience! No reservations. Short wait. Warm atmosphere. We had several different dishes. I had the butternut squash ravioli. Very nice!! Large portions. Great white chocolate bread pudding dessert. Left very satisfied. College town prices.

The food and service here are great; I mean really, REALLY good! The blue cheese Filet Mignon is to die for, and be sure to get a pizzaroti to start!! Get there in early evening because there's always a line. The only real drawback is that it is really QUITE noisy; that being said, somehow you can still hear your... More
