I'm an east coast boy and this is some of the best Italian food I have ever had. I've been going to DiBella's for 15 years. Portions are huge. Service is friendly and have been there for years. Charley DiBella treats everybody like old friends. I can't say enough about how much I love this place.

I'm very particular about Italian food being Italian and this is one of the best! The Italian sausage was incredible! Definitely should be on your list!

Never fails me, my husband and I love going to this place. The food and service is incredible. The atmosphere is romantic or if you are with a big group it is fun. Everyone trying something new and sharing. The wine list is superb and the owner is always there for some advice if you need it.

Loved the atmosphere and the three cheese pasta with chicken was delicious. The background music brought back memories of the 'rat pack' and I caught myself singing along. Staff is friendly and service was excellent. Look forward to a return visit next time I am in Galveston. Will definitely recommend to friends and colleagues.
