We went there for pick up. The pizza with chicken and bacon was really good and the size was generous. We also had the chocolate torte which was great, while the New-York cheesecake was just ok. The guy at the bar was really nice. Definitively...More

I was hungry and wanted pasta. I ordered one of their specialties, Pasta DePalma. I chose the ham and artichoke additions. I ate it. It was average, at best. I will try somewhere else next time.

We stopped here for lunch and had the combo which was a pizza slice and a salad. Always good and we are stuffed

I visit Athens at least twice a year and I always have at least one meal at De Palma's. The lasagna "of the day" never disappoints!

The sangria was good! The Greek salad was not terribly authentic... really just a side salad with some olives (don’t even remember cucumbers). The chicken and pasta was good but the canned artichokes seemed like afterthought rather than a real element of the dish. Service...More

Took my child here for dinner ahead of a college visit to UGA. We shared a pizza that was DIVINE. The Caesar side salad was delicious, and a perfect way to kick off the meal. We seem to eat here every time we’re in Athens....More

This was my third trip. As always, I walked away satiated. While the service could have been better, it was good enough. And the food is always excellent. We sat outside on a lovely Georgia spring night. Perfect.

A great dining experience al fresco. Truly fine Italian meal. The table bread alone was worth the visit. Service was delightful. Well done, Esau. Definitely will do this again.

Was within walking distance of the hotel and the food was unreal..... Didn't have to wait for a table long....but soon found out that the wait was worth it. Had scallops and noodles in a garlic/butter sauce....fresh bread and plenty to drink..staff hovered over us...More

We love this place. The food is very good, and there’s never too much of a wait to get seated. Also, there are vegan options.

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
