Had a wonderful dinner out with tasty drinks, apps, bread, and entrees! Great sized portions and everything was delicious. Only hiccup was a pasta was described on the menu as a creamy butter sauce but came with red sauce, so be sure to double check when you order. Always love the cozy atmosphere and friendly staff here!

Service and food was very good. The only complaint was that tables were very close together, not enough open space.

The online menu is nothing like the actual menu in the restaurant. We opened the online menu and selected the dishes we wanted and were looking forward to eating them; the actual menu that was given to us was a micro menu which was different. We should have left the restaurant, but we drove 40 minutes to get there so we stayed. We were disappointed and changed our opinion of the restaurant that we loved and enjoyed. We would not recommend the restaurant to a frienf=d because the food selection is very poor.

We hadn’t been to DiFebo’s is several years and decided to try it again. Enjoyed it in the past. Last night,..not so much. One, the restaurant was chilly. We had the lasagna which was somewhat dry; mediocre. Cheesecake made with ricotta cheese - sounded a little strange, but I tried it. Not very good. Finally, the waitress seemed annoyed when we asked for separate checks (for the other couple), very dry personality.

The other couple arrived a few minutes before us. The hostess told them to go to the bar and wait. They said,..”oh no,..our party should be here any minute”. She insisted they go to the bar. They felt she was very pushy.

Overall, very disappointed in our dining experience.

Menu said Broccoli rabe and sausage but it came with red sauce?????
Also few mussels were old in my appetizer. The bread- poppyseed was stale , powdered herb mix for dunking tasted like one of the enveloped mixes-terrible.
The waitress was nice but should have had another staff member for the amount of people she was tending to.
The saunas tasteless.
🙁

This was perfect. Our first dinner out after moving to Ocean View. This was the first of many meals here. Great food, great service, great ambiance. Casual excellence. Parking is a bit tricky. We’ll be back!

Bethany location has great ambiance! We enjoyed the live jazz! They didn’t have our favorite Chianti and the replacement was so, so. Our first time dining at this location and we will be back.

The food was fabulous. We were so glad we went there. Chianti braised short ribs with risotto and gnocchi. Don't fill up on the regular bread, order the garlic bread which takes a while but it is worth it.

My wife and I went to DiFebo’s for the first time last night. We enjoyed the Old World ambiance. Our server, Sandy, was very attentive. She anticipated our needs and the dinner was served in a timely manner. The food was excellent! Portions were bountiful; the blueberry bread pudding was awesome!

All great - except our Open Table reservation was essentially ignored. We arrived exactly on time, as did others with no reservations. We watched as all of the other parties were seated before us. This was wrong. We finally said something and we were seated shortly thereafter. The food and service was then ideal. We will go back.

This was some of the finest Italian food I have had in a long time. Veal parm for me and bolognese for my wife, both were excellent. Our waitress was outstanding along with all of the restaurant help, hostess and busboy. I will definitely be back on my next visit to Ocean City, MD.

This was our first Time to DiFebo‘s end we thoroughly enjoyed it. We sat in the outside area and it was lovely. Both my husband and I were very happy with the food. I had the Chianti braised short ribs with risotto and my husband had the pasta Bolognese… Delicious!

The service was excellent, the food was excellent and didn’t take long to serve our food. I was disappointed in the peanut butter pie. Very small portion and was very soft.
I would highly recommend dining there.
