We found this place just by chance. we were looking for a pizza place and run across DePalma's. we love to eat at places we have never been to before. I had a Mushroom / chicken calzone. My wife had the chicken alfredo. Both were extremely good. Great atmosphere. Nice cozy place.

Great Italian food and service. Although not Italian, the white chocolate bread pudding is off the charts! In fact, it is good enough to plan your meal around.

Don't know if they take reservations but we didn't have one on a week day night and had to wait about 1/2 hour but the wait at the bar was quite pleasant and you could eat at the bar if you wanted. Italian food was very good and reasonably priced as was the wine. Large dining area was a bit... More

Single traveler so I look for a spot at the bar. The barkeep was very attentive and friendly. I ordered pasta pomodoro and it was excellent. Lots of veggies and nicely seasoned. I thought the other entrees were a little pricey but the pasta is priced right. I'll be back.

Nice Italian restaurant in downtown Tuscaloosa. My calzone was excellent. Went during lunch and was able to be served immediately.

We were in town for three days and we are there twice. The pizza is our absolute favorite. It is unlike any pizza we have ever had before. Our waiter today was very friendly and service was perfect. This is our favorite restaurant in Tuscaloosa

Great local spot that's perfect for date night but also very fun for larger groups for any occasion. Good affordable wine selection (Meiomi seems to be a fan favorite). Reason for the missing star is that they don't have a Carbonara or a true chicken parm. Those are my favorite 2 pastas and I would expect them to serve those.... More
