We have been coming to Bethany Beach for the last five years. Last year we discovered Di Febo's. What a gem. The decor and food are authentic Italian. The waiters were very friendly but the only negative about the staff is with the bartender. We had ordered takeout and when we came to pick it up we were ignored fr... More

Welcoming atmosphere, wonderful staff and the food was excellent. The restaurant was full but we still received welcoming and, quick service. The best carrot cake I ever had-and I order it everywhere I go. Word of caution-it is enormous! We will return when in the area again.

We went here for my mother's birthday and it was very good. The ambience is nice and everyone working seemed like family. They come around with Italian bread, very attentive staff and delicious food. I had the veal Parmesan and it was great. My sister had the gnocchi and also very good. Dessert was delicious and I thought the wine... More

One of the best Italian restaurant's ever. Lasagna was out of sight. Enough to feed a family. Great service too.

Really mediocre Italian with some weird choices on the menu. Portions are small and prices too high for what is offered. Service was uneven but polite. Room is really out dated. I came with a large group and no one was excited by what they are. I recommend finding somewhere else to eat.

My family and I liked DeFebo's restaurant. The chicken parmigiana was good with a huge portion. We were a large party of 8: all of the adults and children enjoyed their dinners also. The restaurant is attractive and the service was good.

Our first time here and we loved it. Best Caesar salad I've ever had. Lobster pasta and veal parmigiana were great. Service was a little inattentive but we will be returning for another meal before leaving wonderful Bethany beach.

Great food, not so great service for a $100 dinner. We walked in around 7:50 PM without a reservation. The hostess told us a table would be about 5-10 minutes so we decided to wait. We ended up waiting 40 minutes for a table for 2. I thought this was greedy and selfish and assume they did not want to... More

A very busy and attractive restaurant but the food is far from good. If you like super large portions topped with a ton of tomato sauce, this is the place for you. Personally, I prefer quality to quantity.

We did not have reservations but they were able to sit us in about 15 minutes which was very reasonable. Good was very good, including my Filet which was cooked to perfection and finished off with a Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake. Service was good.

Thank Bill Z
