Food was amazing, our server April was awesome. We have never been disappointed coming here and to be able to celebrate Mother’s Day with our mothers and family here today was just wonder. This place never fails us. We will be back again and again and again.

Love the food at DiFabio's and prices are very fair. Nice small wine list so you don't go insane trying to figure out what to order. They also have a great selection of desserts.

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 Cute place with some out of date Italian decor (think mid-90s, a little bit of repainting and redo of the hanging decor would go a long way here).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!
