Though I can't comment on any other menu items, I can speak for the great pizza we had. Thin like a New York slice with oversized pepperoni slices. Great service by the hostess and servers. I would highly recommend regardless if you're casual or a slightly dressed up. Casual Sunday pizza dinner for less than $20 including drinks is always... More

I am in Tuscaloosa every few weeks and chose DePalma's for lunch. When you walk in the door, the smell alone tells you that you're in Italian Heaven. This is a place where I'd like to start at the top of the menu and work my way down. The sauces were perfection. The noodles were perfection. The bread, right, perfection.... More

My husband and I visited DePalma's for date night on a friend's recommendation. The atmosphere is both casual and romantic. We ordered the meatball & onion breadsticks as an appetizer, which I enjoyed and my husband loved. For our entrees we ordered Veal Picatta and a calzone, both of which were good. Portions are generous and our server was fantastic.... More

The restaurant was crowded on a week night around 7 or 8, but I was seated right away and the service was very good, When I went to pay my bill, the little waitress (sorry I don't recall her name) giggled and said that it had been taken care of by another customer. She was not at liberty to identify... More

Everything is made fresh and to your request (no this, add that, etc.). The menu is all authentic Italian cuisine and they include great wine pairings. The Pizza Rotti appetizer is simple but delicious, I order it every time we go. The Pizza and Cal zones are hands-down the best in town but the pasta dishes are what light me... More

Amazing, doesn't begin to describe DePalma's Bread Pudding (that is what pushed them to a 5 star review). OMG, it's a must for any "foodie". I've never had a bad experience at this Restaurant and recommend "Pasta DePalma" for 1st timers (and, of course the Bread Pudding). I've never had anything that didn't meet or exceed my expectations.
