If the idea of a “nice restaurant” has you thinking of white tablecloths and high menu prices, then DePalma’s Italian Cafe in Tuscaloosa may be a delightful departure. Serving delicious food in a vibrant, laid-back atmosphere, DePalma’s invites happy diners to gather, relax, and enjoy a memorable meal.
One of Tuscaloosa’s most popular dining establishments, DePalma’s Italian Cafe has been serving fantastic Italian favorites in its cozy downtown location since 1995. Fresh ingredients take center stage on the menu, where offerings range from antipasti to salads, pasta, pizza, and calzones. If you’re in the mood for something different from your mainstream Italian go-to’s, treat yourself to one of the house specialties. You can’t go wrong with the Gorgonzola Filet, Pine-Nut Crusted Salmon, Veal Marsala, or Filetto Siciliano. There’s also a Lasagna of the Day, which puts irresistible spins on the classic baked pasta dish.
Other menu standouts include Pasta DePalma – angel hair pasta in rosemary cream sauce with mushrooms, mozzarella, and a meat of your choice – and Portobello Mushroom Ravioli. Hand-tossed New York-style pizza takes many forms: Traditional, Pesto-Vegetarian, Asiago Chicken, Carnivore, and more.
