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 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.

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!

First time here, was a Valentine’s Day celebration. Cute place with some out of date Italian decor (think mid-90s, a little bit of repainting and redo of the hanging decor would go a long way here). The Covid regulations were being followed sufficiently. BF had the chicken Marsala, which was good if a bit over sauced. The shrimp scampi over angel hair (what I had) was excellent, perfect portion size for the price. I was a bit taken aback with no table side bread offering, seems like a low cost option that the place could offer to their patrons- especially with the abundance of local bakeries in the area. Escargot appetizer was good, although not enough bread accompanied it to soak up the sauce. (Again, a need for bread!). All in all, a good meal - but not spectacular. Perhaps my expectations were too high.

Food was great overall. Great flavor to all the dishes! I highly recommend the escargot, it was our first time trying it and it was fantastic. Can’t beat the prices. My only gripe was lipstick stains on my glass and they didn’t have fresh parmesan cheese, instead gave me and my date little packets of the powdered cheese. Other than that, I’ll definitely be going back.

Defabio Casabella's never disappoints, whether it is for a special occasion or quite dinner the food is always awesome and at a great value! The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and helpful. This is a hidden gem on Frankfort Avenue. Some of the best Italian food in the city! You can not go wrong with Defabio Casabella's!
