Our family loves the food. Besides best pizza in town, eggplant parm is always great. Try the sausage & onion breadsticks, you'll order it every time!

This is one of my favorite go-to restaurants in Athens. The breadsticks and the Pasta De Palma are always good. Sometimes the service can be slow, but the wait staff are friendly and helpful.

My daughter ordered 'Chicken Parmigian' and I had 'Pasta DePalma' for lunch. BUT My girl had a stomachache and diarrhea after that...she said that food was not fresh and marinara sauce was very dry. well... I don't think I can recommend people.

Depalmas has a great menu. They have fabulous stuffed bread sticks and stuffed mushrooms. We usually get several dishes and appetizers and share. It is also fun to get pizza and beer. Just depends on what you want.
