There was a 2 hour wait after the football game so we came back the next day for lunch. The wait staff was very very friendly and attentive. The bread was refilled 3 or 4 times. The food was excellent. I agree with my son-in-law...More

Depalmas has a great menu. They have fabulous stuffed bread sticks and stuffed mushrooms. We usually get several dishes and appetizers and share. It is also fun to get pizza and beer. Just depends on what you want.

I've been here a few times over the years, and it's nice to see some familiar landmarks on a return visit! Very decent lunch: I took the seafood pasta which came with a great sauce. Portions not overwhelming. Service attentive and helpful.

Love having a meal at De Palma's - we stop in every weekend we're in Athens. Huge, delicious portions - plenty of food for your hungry college boys and leftovers for the lighter eaters. Try the Pasta DePalma w/sausage or chicken.....aahhh!!! Outdoor and indoor seating....More

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
