I would highly recommend the gouda pizza and skip the DePalma pasta as it wasn't our favorite. The service was exceptional by Meredith too!

We've been going to DePalmas for almost 30 years and we've never had a bad experience. It is always the restaurant of choice in our eastside neighborhood. They have great food and service. I think their pizza is the best in town and that includes all the pizza-only places. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is cozy. At first... More

DePalma's has been in downtown Athens for years. The longevity speaks volumes of how steady and consistent they have been. We had dinner there recently after not visiting for an extended time. The menu is a mix of typical Italian plus pizza. They do run a changing daily lasagna special. The wine selection is adequate. The beer and liquor choice... More

Have tried De Palma's twice and I know I can expect a great meal. Had seafood lasagna and a Caesar salad yesterday. We were in a hurry, and the waiter accommodated our schedule.

We ate there based on local recommendation and TripAdvisor ratings. We were not disappointed. Food was good as was the service. Lasagne is a chefs special daily so expect twists to traditional fare.

My teacher co-workers and I enjoyed a variety of calzones and the ensalata Cecilia at De Palma's in downtown Athens. It was near many downtown attractions and the UGA campus. We found that the service, facility, and food all met our needs and satisfaction and I would definitely recommend De Palma's and return here on another trip to Athens.

Their breadsticks are delicious. My favorite dish is the Eggplant Florentine. We usually take out and our order is always ready for us.

I have been going to this restaurant for many years. The food is always, always excellent, but it will take forever to receive your food. It is not that the service is poor either. The wait staff is always attentive. It's just that the food is busy being conjured up in the back somewhere. If your goal is to have... More

Great food and atmosphere! The stuffed mushrooms and meatball+onion breadsticks are our go-to appetizer, and we usually split a Chicken Pasta DePalma (which is good but usually undersalted). I've also had their pizza, and it was really tasty as well! You should visit, but it's a tad bit pricey, so be prepared.

Thank Margaret G
