Enjoyed the atmosphere and had a experience waiter who added a lot to menu selection and overall experience. Authentic food selections made the evening go smooth and portions were more than adequate. Close to UGA campus and reasonably priced

Alwasy a pleasant place to be with friendly people and tasty meals. The atmosphere is Italian and there is a reasonable selection of medium priced wines. No on-site parking but there is on-street parking.

The menu is full of scrumptious meals - the atmosphere heralds fine dining, yet comfortable. I would definitely recommend!

Great dish! Service is top notch: attentive but not overbearing. House wine is good, worth the price. Just a nice vibe to the place.

I love their bread sticks. I can eat it all day. The chicken scaloppini was very good but a little bit on the oily side (I still ate the whole thing:). The eggplant florentine was delicious; I would get that next time again. The bellini drink special was good but flat without any bubbles when it came to the table.

I would highly recommend the gouda pizza and skip the DePalma pasta as it wasn't our favorite. The service was exceptional by Meredith too!

We've been going to DePalmas for almost 30 years and we've never had a bad experience. It is always the restaurant of choice in our eastside neighborhood. They have great food and service. I think their pizza is the best in town and that includes all the pizza-only places. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is cozy. At first... More
