Going to DePalma's is a tradition when we are in Athens, GA. The atmosphere is peppy - especially on game day, and the food really is very good. Calzones are big - although it seemed like the portion was a little smaller this time, compared to a few years back. Still, my husband ended up bringing some of his home so I guess the portion size is certainly hearty. My spaghetti and meatballs with marinara sauce was delicious. The bread brought to table ahead of the meal is very nice; pleased to see a pat of butter on the bread plate. The oil & vinegar combination was not to my taste. Wait time is considerable on a Saturday night. Do not go to this place if you are in a rush. Take your time; enjoy the atmosphere of a restaurant that has managed to stay in business for several years in a busy college town.

Staff was great - server was well informed on the menu and offered up her own favorites which one of us selected.

I'm not typically a big fan of Italian cuisine, but we love to eat at De Palma's restaurant. Athens has several locations and we haven't been disappointed with any of them. The service is fast and friendly and the food is always top notch.

Like many of the other downtown buildings, this restaurant has that old architecture and age that captivated my attention. The food was very good and warmed us up nicely before we had to get back out in the cold weather. The staff was very friendly and attentive.

This restaraunt has become a regular when visiting our daughter at school. The food is freshly prepared. Haven't had a bad dish yet. The space does get loud as the crowds get large in the evening. We usually go here for lunch when it is less crowded.
