Family owned authentic Italian food. It's off the beaten path which is a nice change. The portions are huge and the staff is very friendly. Their primary pasta is Angel Hair and it was cooked perfectly. I very much liked their meat sauce and husband liked his plain red sauce. The garlic "bread" is a little strange; but adequate. When we want Italian in Galveston, this is where we will dine.

This family run restaurant is the best in Galveston or Texas for that matter. It doesn't get better food than this well know locals spot. Lasagna is the best but everything on the menu is great. Try the marinated ribeye steak. (It's a secret family receipt). Don't miss this one!

Tradiational old Italian family-owned kind of restaurant. The food was good, felt like I was dining in a 1940s Italian restaurant. Chicken parm was big and very good - could easily have split the meal. Desserts were wonderful - we had canolis and cheesecake. Garlic bread was different but tasty, but the French bread pizza was a bit of a let down. Fettucini alfredo with chicken was excellent - chicken was nicely grilled and the whole dish was delicious. Eggplant parmesan was pretty good, although they could have cooked the eggplant a bit longer. Waitress was very friendly and efficient. Would eat here again for sure.

The one good thing I can say about Di Bella's is that the pasta tasted fresh. After that, it appeared and tasted out of a can. Wish them the best, but they could really use some help in the kitchen.

We stopped at DiBella's on our trip to Galveston. This place is great. Has a long history in the city and lots of locals eat here. Anything on the menu with red sauce is worth getting. We love the lasagna and spaghetti and meatballs.
