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.

The food is impeccable. All three of us enjoyed every bite but had to take over half the food home. Portions are too big. The lasagna and cioppino were both enough
2+ meals. Cut the portions and cut the price in half. The raviolis were amazing and just the right size. We will be back soon!!

Moms request to dine here for her 81st birthday. We were seated promptly and service was outstanding. Never had any empty water glasses (a huge thing for us) and our server was polite and very informative. A big plus was when she was describing the nightly entree specials she also told us the price. My parents both finished all of their entrees and desserts, which tells me they enjoyed the food. Pricing is reasonable for a party of 4 with dinner, drinks and dessert.

Another plus was how the manager on duty handled another party when they were being difficult. I am in the food & beverage industry and the way he handled the situation was 100% correct.

I highly recommend this restaurant!

The calamari was light, crispy and tender, the garlic bread with roasted cloves of garlic just melted in my mouth, the buratta with fried eggplant had a beautiful presentation. The salads were perfect. We filled up on appetizers that we only ate half our entrees and took the rest home. The 7 layer chocolate cake we took home fiiled the air with the sweet smell of chocolate after opening the container. It was the best! the wait staff was extremely attentive, removing dishes promptly and asking to refill drinks quickly. Very pretty decor and nicely spaced seating.

A friend recommended DiFebos. We were very happy with the service and the atmosphere. We were seated outside with outdoor heaters which were great. I had the gnocchi which was so tender and delicious. Mmmmm! My husband had the shrimp pomodoro which was also delicious. We shared a Caesar salad and Tira Mi Su. What a great dinner!
Definitely would recommend.

Underwhelming. The lasagna was the size and thickness of a brick. It was dry even with the random bolognese sauce poured over it. Why not just make a meat option?

I don’t understand why restaurants feel the need for huge portions. It’s your typical American Italian restaurant so if that’s your speed, this is for you.

Perfect - from setting to service to food. Whether I stay in DE or Ocean City, DiFebo’s is now a “can’t miss!”
A local couple from OC joined us- their favorite Italian WAS Mancinis. It is now DiFebos!

High priced slightly above average food. MAKE SURE YOU INQUIR ABOUT THE PRICE OF ANY SPECIALS. We had sticker shock when my wife's entree was billed at $50 !!!!!
My mediocre cioppino included an unexpected and nauseating ingredient that the staff couldn't 100% identify. It killed my appetite for the evening. (much better cioppino at Fins).
Despite that, I was charged full price, $34.
