The De Palma's Downtown is a staple in Athens for obvious reasons. A well-stocked bar, professional servers and good food. Their pasta is always delicious, salads are fresh, and desserts hit the sweet tooth spot. From the moment it opens until it closes you get...More

We love De Palmas. The pizza at the Eastside location is way better- the crust is soft- it's like getting pizza with a side of breadsticks. The greek pizza and pasta de palmas with artichoke is our usual order- it never disappoints. They are always...More

We stopped in with the entire family for lunch before a performance at the Classic Center. We had a great lunch with excellent service.

Went during daughters orientation and found it to be just okay. Good service. Food was plain and my wife felt it was very salty. Loud atmosphere. Probably more of a pizza place

We have visited DePalma’s for over 10 years. The food is predictable and the menu is traditional. In a city where restaurants come and go, DePalma’s has managed to stay in business thanks to their reliably good food and attentive service. It’s not the best...More

Lovely, charming, romantic establishment. Definitely not a college dive. Wait staff is usually very on point. Food never misses, however, which is what keeps me going back. Decadent entrees which are not terribly pricey. Portions are more than enough. You would be doing yourself a...More

Have eaten at De Palma’s on Timothy Rd. twice in the last 30 days, each time with friends. The first time was very disappointing. Understand that every restaurant can have an off night. Thought we would give it another try. This time the Caesar Salad...More

We were a group of 12 and were willing to split, but they were able to accommodate us as a group. Phillip was great dealing with us, but the wait for entrees was a bit much. It took almost an hour, and when we got...More

We have been to De Palma's several times, and with the exception of one visit, the service and food has been excellent. We mostly order Italian food which is their specialty. On one visit the services was slow and the pizza was a little burned...More

I have eaten lunch at DePalma's many more times than dinner, which is very good too, and the lunch menu is very good. Good choices, good food, good amount and always good service.

I don't think you need reservations: and I am not sure they take reservations. In my experience it has always been first come first served, but they do try to accommodate people in terms of where you want to sit (it is very... More
