Good but not as good as it used to be

DiFebo's used to be incredible but the last few times we have been in it has been just okay. The atmosphere is great, the service is good, and the food is good but just not great.

We make this one of our go to places every August when we stay in South Bethany. Six adults, two grandchildren, everybody happy and well fed, never a bad experience at DiFebo's.

15 family members, ordered take out trays from the family style menu. Every thing was wonderful, chicken parmigiano, chicken rosa, rigatoni with vodka sauce, spaghetti, gnocchi, caprice salad, antipasto and desserts. All done on time, very friendly service. Could eat there repeatedly. Great restaurant!

We stopped here for drinks and dessert. We sat at the bar and had a great bartender ( male/blonde hair) He made the best Coffee Martini!! We shared a piece of yummy Tiramisu. We met other patrons at the bar who ate dinner. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked great! Will definitely be going back for dinner & more!

Lisa owns and runs the place and does an outstanding job creating some of the most unique dishes. It was July 4th weekend and the staff was slammed but did a great job. The desserts are home made and delicious. I had the Salmon and it was fantastic.

Searching for a new Italian restaurant not too far from North Ocean City, we remembered DiFebo's and went up to Bethany for dinner. What a wonderful evening. Since we had a little one with us, we opted for the outdoor dining and it was very pleasant. Our server, Kathy, was excellent and she helped make our first dinner special. The... More

A perfect place and great location for authentic Italian at the beach. Far ranging menu of classic Italian fare with many specials of note, a good wine list and great desserts. Don't leave without a taste of Grandma's Cheesecake.

When you're looking for good Italian food and at this lovely Delaware beach town, DiFebo's is a reliable place to try. They have a wide and varied menu from pastas to fresh fish.
