I have been coming to DiFebo's for over 20 years--since it was just a small takeout shack. It is one of our summer vacation, go-to restaurants. We continue to enjoy the food. The other day, we were there and ate almost exclusively off the specials menu. Crab Cake Ravioli - Nice piquant spice. It was almost like Old Bay meets... More

Having been visiting the Bethany Beach area for 15 years, you learn to realize that decent food in "seasonal" beach areas is hard to find. Here, the food was decent and plentiful. They have a nice, large menu with choices of starters/small plates, salads and entrees. They also had a daily special menu as well as specials NOT on either... More

We wound up at DiFebo's after missing out on another restaurant. We didn't really want Italian as it was so hot outside, but they were able to seat our large group right away, so we went with it. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the variety of the menu. I had the crab cakes, which... More

I recently have had the pleasure of going to DiFebro’s in Bethany Beach as well as their new location in Rehoboth beach and I am happy to say both locations are a good restaurant for Italian cuisine. The wait staff is pleasant helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. The menu not only offers a wide variety of Italian dishes, but... More

Very experienced at Italian fare given this our heritage. I ordered the first item on the menu which is typically the best seller - pasta with meatballs. The sauce was very dark and salty and tasted worse then out of a jar. Sauce was also very bland as if there were no spices or vegetables added to enhance its flavor.... More

Unbelievably terrible... My husband and I made an 8:00 P.M. reservation. We entered at 7:50 P.M., and were seated immediately. We ordered an app and a bottle of wine. While enjoying them we ordered dinner which came in 5 minutes. Dinner was s oso and plates we whisked away as soon as we were finished. We were still enjoying our... More

Classic Italian could mean anything . But what's notable is the ambience , the place is very pretty , beautiful courtyard to dine in . On the inside you see a well appointed and nicely set dinning room with great feeling .. The Caesar salad is as good as it gets ./ fresh cheese , fresh dressing , homemade croutons... More

The crab filled ravioli was delicious. The chicken in the risotto was cooked perfectly; unexpectedly the risotto had a strong citrus finish which is not to my taste and I would have appreciated a note in the menu. Sides are a'la carte, making dinner a bit pricey.
