De Palma's in downtown Athens has great Italian food. The location is fantastic, right across the street from the UGA campus. The food and service are consistently great. Highly recommend.

Every dish looked great! I ordered the Chicken Scalopini and it was wonderful. The artichokes and spinach were perfect. Good price for drink specials.

Second trip here on business. Wow! You need to try the "breadsticks". Loaded with meatball or spinach. Either is great! The short rib ravioli did not disappoint. Food and service are exceptional.

Have been eating here during my trips to the NCAA Tennis Championships for years and the food and service are always top notch. Visited twice during my most recent trip this year and both meals were outstanding. Always a go-to when in Athens!

This eatery has been quite popular for many years and I have been a customer since the mid 1990s. The menu has been reduced in recent years which is unfortunate, since it makes the offerings rather bland. But there are a couple of good pasta...More
