This is a true gem of a restaurant and it's always wonderful to be there. They have managed safety really well - with big barriers between every table and very large spacing between tables. We are an older couple and this is one of the only restaurants around where we feel 100% safe. It's a wonderful, wonderful experience.

So, now that the COVID stuff is out of the way, let me say that the food is so, so, so good. It's fresh, delicious and healthy. You can tell it's homemade and freshly-made all the time. The menu variety is great and, for those who need it, there are gluten free options for pasta (my daughter is gluten-free and she loves this spot).

Service is wonderful too. All in - this is an A+++ spot!

Monday Madness is an excellent value! 4-course meal includes wine & wonderful live sax 🎷 The prime rib on the special menu was a nice surprise.

Unfortunately, we were surprisingly disappointed. Four of us went to celebrate my wife's birthday since DiFebo's was highly recommended. The server was great, as was our drinks. The calamari was delicious. The entrees, however, were below average, especially for the price. My wife and friend shared seafood linguini, which was cold...the asked for well-done scallops (which they had one each) and the scallops were cold inside. Me and my friend had the lamb chop entree and I couldn't eat mine - so much fat. Cold mashed potatoes also. Our bill was around $300.

First time trying this restaurant in Bethany as I love Italian food. It was 5 star all the way.
I would recommend as the food was excellent and the staff was warm and welcoming.
We will be returning when we are in town. Awesome way to celebrate my 50th birthday.

You won’t be disappointed with any menu selection. Our advice, don’t even look at the menu; allow your server, Sergio is out favorite, to guide your dining choices.
We always have a delicious meal, with great ambiance and terrific service.
Fine dining at the beach is DiFebo’s

DiFebo’s has been our favorite restaurant in Bethany for decades. The food is high quality and the ambience is always great. Their bartenders are the best in the area, making excellent martinis. You always feel special and like family at DiFebo’s.

Given COVID period of time, the restaurant was reduced so patronage was minimal. Have dined there before and enjoyed the food. One disappointment was the way they prepared my wife’s Filet, after two attempts, they still didn’t get it right!

The food was delicious. We were a few minutes early and the woman we spoke with said we'd have to wait 10 minutes because someone was on break. I would have liked to hear you can sit at such and such a seat and would you like to order a drink while you are waiting. To be fair it seemed like possibly there was a staff shortage. Regardless, we had a great time and enjoyed our drinks and dinners very much. We will definitely be going back again or ordering for pick up during bad weather.
