Loved the whole experience--the wonderful lasagna and chicken marsala, the kind and attentive staff and the cozy ambience. Big win for date night!

We had the best waitress. Checked on us many times food was excellent. They made a special order for me to accommodate my diet. We will definitely return. Only thing that could be improved was our after dinner coffee wasn’t very hot. Love hot coffee

A $2 charge for splitting a mediocre salad, when entrees are also ordered is petty. Food was OK, but unimaginative for the price.

April was awesome! Food delicious. Lemon drop drink very tasty. Rooms are dark and dreary!
If food wasn’t so good, I wouldn’t go back, except to eat outside.

Generally, a great evening of dining with friends. However, this was our first time to be placed in the back room. There are all hard surfaces there. Some sound-absorbing panels would greatly help. The ambiance of the main room or front porch is a better choice!

We dined on the front porch because it was too noisy indoors. I've NEVER had a bad meal here. My favorites are the shrimp scampi and the veal piccata. This time. 0ne person had the salmon, one had shrimp scampi, and one had veal piccata. Everyone enjoyed their selections. Two of us shared an order of Tiramisu that was delicious
The wine list has recently been expanded more than you would expect for such a small establishment.
Our favorite server is April. She makes guests feel as though she were preparing and serving the food in her own home.

We made a reservation and we’re walked right to our seats. Incredible service and food. We thought everything was fast even though our server was apologetic that our food didn’t come out sooner.

We will be back!!

We love this little restaurant. Always great service (make sure to ask for April because she is a rock star 😎) and the food is terrific! I had the shrimp caprese. The dish was spot on and the shrimp cooked perfectly! We always recommend this place.

Our food, service and experience was outstanding. The prices are extremely reasonable. The building is a bit rundown but the food and experience far outweighed the aesthetics of the building.

A delightful evening! We sat on the front porch on a lovely spring evening. April was extraordinary in taking care of us. Our meals were delicious. Two had shrimp scampi and capellini, one ordered lasagna. We highly recommend DiFabio's to anyone who enjoys delicious food at a great price!
