Went before a concert without a reservation. Initially would have to wait but someone who had a reservation was late so we got their table. There was a large group present so the service was a liitle slow. The walnut salad was excellent and the seafood lasagna was also good. Ambiance was good. Will go again when downtown.

My wife and I love eating here. The food is authentic, full of flavor and portions leave little room for dessert.

Thanks to Trip Advisor we found this authentic family Italian restaurant! Quaint setting with great food and staff that cares. Skip the chains and eat a home-cooked meal.

I went to DePalma's with my family on a weekend evening, and we were able to get right in. I immediately liked the atmosphere, very "italian family restaurant", and the wait staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. My family is pretty picky food-wise, vegetarian, vegan, no-onion, etc., and our waiter offered great suggestions and recommendations. All of our dishes were... More

Eager to try something new with an ethnic cuisine, another couple along with my wife and me decided on DePalma's last weekend. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent, the atmosphere was inviting, and we didn't feel like we had to rush our time there. Our waiter offered his recommendations and even provided a wine sample. We will be...

For a local Italian restaurant, the food and atmosphere are second to none. My wife and I have made DePalmas our date night for the past year. Each time we enter we are greater with a smile and a hello. The food is terrific, cooked with and from moms heart. Little pricey, however it is worth it. Reservations are reccomended... More

Just went here last week. I had a very good experience. I had a starter of potato soup. It was homemade and piping hot. I can't tell you how nice it was to have homemade soup at a restaurant. The next course was the salad. It was one of the best starter salads I have had in a long time.... More

Went there over the weekend - looks like an old Pizza Hut location. Our meals were very average, especially considering the pricing was above average. We had a large group, so that probably explains the slow service. Italian food is my favorite, and this was disappointing. Several people in our group made the same comment.

Great experience, need a reservation. Good wine list. Meals well priced. Veal Parmesan was like cutting butter, mushroom ravioli delicious. All six of us had great meals. The bread is addicting. Deserts wonderful, all in all a little jewel on a busy street. Don't let the location put you off, food is wonderful.

I had never been to De Palma's, I had only heard great things. I took my kids on a week night, the place had plenty of empty tables but I was looked down on because I didn't have a reservation. The service was really slow, the food was less than okay and the pricing was horrible. The atmosphere was a... More
