Went to Depalma's to celebrate a birthday and had a great time. Saw many friends and had perfect service. Every time we go to Depalma's we leave very satisfied.

Terrific Italian comfort food served in a quaint and homey downtown restaurant that had a lot of historical memorabilia and charm. Went there for lunch and the pasta was delicious. Sauces were super rich and creamy! I'll be back!

Often when you want to go here there is a wait.... do yourself a favor and be patient!!! So worth it. The bread stick app is a MUST!!! Food and service are excellent. We have had steaks, pasta and pizzas there and never been unhappy....More

They do. I have nothing to do with this restaurant, I was just providing feedback. Please call them to figure out which cards they accept.
