Gone are the days that I regularly eat meat. And while my cardiologist is happy, which makes me happy, the one thing I truly miss is a good sub. (Subs. We call them subs in western New York. Not a wedge, hoagie, hero, or grinder!) So while I am not longer an active sub aficionado, I can fully testify to... More

DiBella's bakes their bread fresh in the store and you taste that perfect bread with every bite. My favorite classic sub is the Godfather on everything bread. My favorite hot sub is the Philly Cheesesteak! Neat place and great employees. Friendly and clean.

I've never had a bad sub and think the turkey is a great choice, Dibella's has the best sub in town, however prices are a little steep.

Overall, pretty good subs. The bread is good, but it appears to have a lite glaze on top, possibly a white egg coating. The bread tasted more like bread from sub way. It lacked something. Had a small tuna sub which was more than enough for one person. Tuna was fresh and tasty. Cold cuts were tasty and not too... More

Great subs with different delicious breads. They will grill the meats also which is unique. So tastey.

Didn't realize it at the time, but this is actually a chain. We found one in Cleveland on the drive home. It was terrific. The sandwiches are made on crusty Italian bread baked on premises, and meats and vegetables that could not be fresher. The sandwiches are massive. I made the mistake of ordering a regular one, and it could... More
