3 locations so the whole town is covered. I've only been for lunch but it's worth the trip. They have lunch specials with pasta dishes changing daily. There is also a slice and salad with drink daily. Worth the trip!

We ate here a year ago and we liked it so we went again on this trip to Athens, GA. The food is good, not outstanding but solid. Traditional Italian entrees, or pizza. Service is good. Ate at the bar last year as all the table were taken, especially by sorority and fraternity kids out for Friday night date night.... More

We knew before our visit that this restaurant had just opened. We were immediately impressed by the bar and unique high top table. Our server although obviously a neophyte was trying hard to offer good service. We decided on pizza along with a bottle of wine and everything was okay. Not sure about another visit at least not in the... More

I cannot get enough of this place. The food is amazing. I can't speak to the service because I always order through delivery. Hands down the best Italian around.

We visited De Palma's on a Friday night. We were seated quickly and the waiter was extremely attentive. They have a nice menu and wine list. We decided to go with pizza and a bottle of wine. The pizza was very good and served quickly. The waiter did a wonderful job, checking to be sure everything was perfect. We enjoyed... More

My wife and I both had their lasagna. It was the special of the evening. I thought it needed more cheese, but my wife, who is an expert said it was just right. Anyway it was very good. Two for $14 each, a great atmosphere, great staff and I believe possibly one of the better traditional food restaurants in the... More

Always a stop when I am in town for a while. Fresh food - bread, salads and pasta with good size portions. Went with friends - 4 different entrees all with a thumbs up - classic Italian dishes prepared well. Good attentive staff makes it a winner.
