We had a great meal. The red gravy is excellent. Haven’t had garlic bread in a long time and it was wonderful. Our server Danica was great

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.

Normally enjoy our meals here. Tonight everything was rushed, food tasted as if it was cooked a day earlier and was cold.

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.

Consistently phenomenal food and service. This is our go-to place to take out-of-town guests and to celebrate special occasions.

We drive 45 minutes to dine at DiFebo's and it is always worth it!

Only reason I didn't give 5 stars across the board:
Took a while to get our table from wobbling ...no biggie, we got it level with folded napkins.
We understand everyone is short staffed.
And the two tables on either side of us were VERY loud! Omgosh, we could hardly hear ourselves talk. Finding that in a lot of places though.
But we really do love Defeibos. Manager Mike is great and staff too! Foods awesome! We try and eat there a lot.
Miss the bar happy hours though... use to be fun meeting people that way.
Looking forward to our next meal there.

Our visit for dinner last night was a wonderful decision. No wait for our reservation drinks were great appetizers were great also antipasto and fried eggplant. Main dishes were outstanding and desserts we shared were top notch. We were able to compliment the chef when he came to our table. We will be back and we have already recommended your establishment. 👍

We were there late September with reservations for outside dining. It was very busy but our reservation was ready with minimal delay. Pretty courtyard. Service and food were excellent- can recommend the swordfish and ravioli. Desserts, cannoli and crepe brûlée, were delicious! Prices were what would be expected.

The food was delicious and our server was upbeat and helpful.
The hostess was rude and unhelpful. Said we did not have a reservation. When we insisted we did she finally located it. She told us we had to sit inside despite having requested outdoor seating on our reservation. There were plenty of outdoor tables available- a couple remained vacant during our entire meal. We were seated by a window where we could observe the outdoor seating and it was frustrating.
