My husband and I always stop in for dinner whenever we are out together for birthday or holiday shopping for our kids! Always good food and great service.

Loved this place. They had soups, my favorite being Lobster Bisque, and it was great. The garlic bread was perfect for dipping. Loved the value of their Market Meal option! Must-try when in Rochester!!

Delicious and the selection is unmatched. Subway and jimmy johns are for preschoolers, this is a big boy sandwich. Only one comment, drinks were not very cold but otherwise fantastic!

DiBella's Godfather is the best sub I have ever eaten. The bread is amazing, the meats and cheese high quality and tasty, and the flavored oil ties it all together. I think their best cookie is the oatmeal raisin.

I had the Philly cheese steak and it was delicious. The menu is extensive and I could not decide. Whenever you get a chance to go there it's awsome.

While they were generous with their portions I found the sub to be just ok. I couldn't finish the small size. Instead of bringing it home I just threw it out. It tasted good, just not great. Might try a different variety if I was back in this area.

It's the best Italian around. I've been getting it on the everything bun, but I think I'm going to switch to regular Italian bread.

We like going here for their Italian Subs which are huge, loaded with meat, tasty fresh bread. The soup and salads are good and the cookies are delicious. Service is good.

This place is my favorite place to get a sub. The bread is just outstanding, plenty of meat on the sandwiches and I have never had a bad meal here. Highly recommended, a must stop for anyone that has never been here!

Thank Masterbeavis
