Fun, food, and we left so full!

Native New Yorkers are usually snobby about Italian restaurants because the bar has been set so high. Yet here in cosy Bethany Beach is a little gem worthy of Little Italy. The staff was friendly and funny, and super helpful when I came in with crutches. Warm baked fresh was delectable followed by... read more

I had dinner here over the weekend with a friend. It's always a nice place for dinner but it really is recommend you make a reservation. They are open for lunch but I've only dined for dinner. Every time I've been here there has been a line, so get there early or make a reservation. The food- we had the... More

DiFebos is consistently delicious. My husband and I love their food. They have lots of variety on their menu (I even learned to love brussel sprouts because of DiFebos!) and super friendly staff. As a local we are grateful they are open all year!! This is one of our go-to spots. They are always exceptional.

DiFebos Restaurant is the closest thing to Italy you’ll find at the beach. At its core DiFebos relies upon simple things done well, if you consider hand made ravioli, authentic slow simmered sauces, and house cured meats and olives simple. The food is exquisite and the friendly intimate atmosphere allows you to forget you are in a beach resort town.... More

Amazing food. Specials are over the top. Just had Snapper over crab & spinach manicotti. To die for. Blane at the bar always has the perfect wine to match and everyone on the staff knows just how to make you feel welcome.

Lots of people I know just love DiFebo's, but I don't. It's OK, but the decor is ordinary, it's noisy and the food tends to be gloppy, in my opinion. They have a nice but slow staff, and a good menu, but everything ends up tasting the same. I'd skip it, if I were you.

we used Difebo's for a catering event on the beach in Bethany, and everyone agreed, the food was very good as well as the service we received when picking up the food.

I have been to difebo's quite a few times. Service can be spotty, as they never seem to have enough staff, but overall it's fine. This last visit, we had the cheese plate, which was amazing. We also had the mussel appetizer. The mussels were good in a wonderful sauce, the downside was that no bread was sent to sop... More
