I often stop in here when I am in town. I usually get their tuna salad on multi-grain (love this bread!). Great selection of subs, good prices!

If you enjoy really meaty subs on the best sub rolls in the area, then DiBella's is the place to go. Almost any of the locations will do the job; the one on East Avenue is very good as well. Their small sub was huge; I can't imagine getting a large and hoping to finish it. I recommend the Dagwood... More

Its hard to be disappointed...unless you don't want a sub. Otherwise there are a ton of options! Staff isn't always the most polite...but they aren't terrible either.

DiBella's has the best subs in Rochester! My favorite is the meatball sub. I love their pickles, as well.

Every time my family and I want a sub, it's always DiBella's. The bread is always fresh, the meat is plentiful and delicious and the employees are friendly. I'm truly hooked on the potato salad as well. Yummy!!!!

I wasn't really ever a fan of subs.. being a vegetarian complicated things.. lettuce, tomato, cheese. DiBellas changed that with how many options they have, now I visit a DiBellas about 2 - 4 times a month. Their bread is baked fresh daily, and is really what makes the meal. The East ave location is great, but if you have... More

One of the opening lines of one of greatest movies of all times! AND...a perfect description of the way I feel about the Godfather Sub. DiBella's makes it Fantastic! Lots of meat; no scrimping here. Custom toppings. I better stop; I should never let anyone outside of the family know what I'm thinking!
