Food and service always great, although it does take a while to get your meal. Small price to pay for having it made fresh. Kind of expensive for lunch.

My family ate here and enjoyed our meal. Both the food and the service were good, although not outstanding. My wife thought her lasagna was a little too greasy, although my pork dish was very good. The pizza ordered by another member of our group was also thought to be a bit greasy. The atmosphere was again good, not great,... More

Our spinach fettucine and ravioli were delicious. Watch your wine bill. Our waitress was helpful and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was what warm and welcoming.

Excellent roasted pork tenderloin and risotto with mushrooms. Great Caesar Salad and could not ask for better service. The Pizzarolli as an appetizer was plenty for six to share. Will return when I am back in Tuscaloosa. Walked one block from Embassy Suites.

Noticed the #1 TA listing and checked it out. OMG !! Get the pizza. It's "D-Vine X2" Thin crust + New York style = Magnificent. This part of town can be busy with evening traffic and parking can be quite challenging .. BUT .. the food is worth whatever you've experienced to get there. Seated in the back by the... More

Great Italian food from appetizers to entrees. Good prices. Quaint place inside, friendly staff. No wonder the wait is long, go early to avoid waiting hours. Nice selection of wines and beers too. Will definitely be back when in town.

With new restaurants popping up in Tuscaloosa's downtown area this is still a favorite for a family celebration. Great Italian menu. Wine list is good. A bit loud but what Italian restaurant isn't? It gathers all the happy people!

There's a good amount of food to choose from all reasonably priced. We started with the antipasta platter and breadsticks with cheese. Out of pickiness I liked half the platter, but what I did eat I enjoyed. The cheese sticks were delicious. My shells florentine was good but I save 2/3 of it since I was full from the appetizers...

When you want a great Italian meal in a lovely setting go to Depalmas. It's lovely and the food is wonderful. Great staff too. Will definitely be back.

We were in town for the night so we decided to check out DePalm's. My wife had the Veal Marsala and I had the Portabello Mushroom Ravioli. Both meals were excellent!! The wait was not long and comfortable. The waiter was great and the atmosphere was semi secluded. Next time the pizza!!!
