We booked a table through Open Table on a whim one evening. It was a beautiful evening so we asked to sit on the porch. It was a great cozy spot where we could visit and people watch. We ended up only ordering the specials....More

This was a very nice Italian restaurant for both traditional (my favorite) but also, more trendy types of Italian dishes. They had a great house salad, and we both had the manicotti which was very nicely done. It had a strong marinara sauce and a...More

Always get dessert! The chocolate cake is off the hook - could give you the sugars. Manicotti is the best I've ever had and the atmosphere - definitely Italian. Friendly staff, clean facility, good service says nice meal.

We generally like this local restaurant, however, the kitchen timing was off a bit. When you not halfway through with your salad and your main course comes it's a wee bit of a problem. The server apologized for the food arriving too early. Fortunately, service...More

Was with a group walking the area and we decided to dine here. Took a while to get a table on Saturday without a reservation but was worth the wait. Reservations recommended.

Surprise dinner date here tonight, neither of us had ever dined at DiFabio's before. Since neither of us was hugely hungry going in to dinner, we decided to just order an appetizer or two and an entree to share. We were not greeted, really, but...More
