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

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

Hope you have an empty belly because the subs here are very filling and delicious. Freshly prepared with nice bread rolls and good meats and veggie toppings you can't go wrong here. Service is fast and furious and you will leave here full!

You won't find a sub quite like DiBella's subs. The quality of the bread is what sets them apart. The subs are stuffed and the price for quantity is very reasonable. A great stop for picnic food or a sit down meal!

I don't normally buy tuna subs due to the quality of tuna I prefer. However, I was delighted when I walked into DiBella's and saw they served albacore. The sub was excellent on my choice of bread(multigrain) and the additions such as cheese,olives,etc made for a hearty sub. I have been coming to Rochester for years, but never had the... More

Grabbed some subs and sandwiches before driving home from RIT. These were very good subs and sandwiches. Cute place inside. If you want a good sub, this is probably the best place to go.
