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.

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

Went here last minute and wasn't disappointed. A nice varied menu with both gourmet and traditional plates. Our server Adam gave great service and was very knowledgeable of the menu. I had the braised short ribs. They were extremely tender well seasoned and presented over mashed with grilled Brussels sprouts. The atmosphere upon entering was warm and inviting. However the...

Having had some bad experiences with this restaurant, I have always been surprised when others tell me how good it is. I was pleasantly surprised by my outing this time around. I went on a very quiet Monday night and sat at the bar. Kat, behind the bar, was charming and friendly. I had a perfectly made martini, an acceptable... More

We love going to DiFebo's even though it is a bit of a hike for us. The food is always awesome and the service impeccable. This time we both had Veal Scaloppini. It was breaded just right - not heavily like some places like to do. The gravy was flavorful and the roasted tomatoes and the dollop of cheese on... More

My husband and I come to Bethany every weekend. We decided to give this restaurant a try. Our server was ok but seemed like she would rather be somewhere else. I had the diver scallops. There were only four medium size and a ton of pasta. Husband had a bolenase dish which was very good. Overall, we felt we paid... More
