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.

This Italian place in Louisville was good. I had the shrimp scampi with angel hair pasta. I was not crazy about the way it was made, but it had a good taste. I just didn't care for the bread crumbs on top. All of our dishes were good.

Looking for an excellent Italian meal without pretension or crystal chandeliers? This is your place. The food was outstanding and the informal atmosphere made me feel very comfortable. We started with two appetizers (a fabulous goat-cheese and a very good calamari dish) and both are recommended. Our family of four each ordered different entrees and three (the baked manicotti, the... More

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 and the food were very good. Our server brought us more bread without asking plus... 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 after a few minutes we were seated so there was no wait which was nice... More

1st time visit. I called ahead after booking reservation on-line to let them know about our anniversary. They congratulted us on the big day before we even hit the table. Cool... Server was excellent recommending items. My wife had Chicken Marsala which she loved. I had Linguini/marinara/add sausage. Good flavor (Next time I will request my pasta aldente) Turamisu and...

Surprisingly, many restaurants are actually closed on Sunday for church, can you believe that????? Tried it cause not much choice that day. An attempt was made to make vodka sauce which came out red and too much red pepper spicy. The wine was good and the tiramisu was homemade and great!!!!
