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.

We stopped here to eat while in town waiting to board our cruise ship. This is a small, family owned restaurant. Service was friendly and attentive, the food was hot, fresh, and tasted wonderful! The lasagna is one of the best I have tried.

This family restaurant has some of the best food I have ever eaten. I live in Tulsa Oklahoma and would not think of going to Galveston and not eat at Di Bella's. It is so refreshing to go and feel welcome. The wait staff are superb. And if Charlies wife comes in she makes sure everyone is greeted. Don't miss... More

We love DiBella's and have a great experience every time we go. They can be a little pricey. Also, reservations are recommended for weekend nights and weekends when there are festivals in Galveston. The carbonara is sooo yummy!

It's a well established Island favorite off the beaten path. food is good, old Italian traditional. However, the restaurant is old, dated, and dark. Old photos & awards across the walls, stiff booths, but decent food. Neighborhood parking, no lot.
