Really love the CheesySteak one. Uff delicious, the only type of Submarines I can find in México have nothing to do with these ones. The place looks old but food is delicious.

Sorry, I missed and gave the other location the props for the delicious subs. I am new to Rochester and didn't know they had two locations. But Dibella's has great subs. I'm from Miami, Florida and never had a sub so fresh and delicious like this Italian Market. I will definitely be back. My son and I were so pleased.

So, we REALLY wanted salads and decided to try out DiBella's as their subs are pretty good. They let you pick the lettuce you want and you are supposed to get as many toppings as you want. You do get unlimited toppings, but they will put pathetically small amounts on your salad. If you are an iceberg person, make sure... More

the bread is excellent, the meat was excellent, place is very clean. Best sub I have ever had!! Much better than other sub chains. Will most certainly go back when we are in the U.S.

I had a craving for a DiBella's sub for a couple months and finally got one the other day. It did not disappoint me. The sub rolls are fresh and the subs are always loaded with meat, cheese and whatever accessories you want. Now they even have black olives and pickels available, two of my favorites. Their potatoe salad is... More

Have driven by this place and was always wanting to stop. Well, we finally did and are we glad. We stopped after the lunch rush and found both the exterior and interior clean. The menu had plenty of options to choose from: soups, salads, sandwiches, etc. The price was reasonable and the food quality was fresh and outstanding. We had... More

My family was up in Rochester visiting family during Labor Day weekend and our daughter recommend we stop and have lunch at DeBella's. It was the best decision we made, the sandwiches are fresh, the bread is amazing and nothing like we had ever had before, so delicious. We enjoyed it so much we went the next day for lunch... More

One of the best Sub Shops in the US. Fresh bread, meats and veggies topped with signature seasoned oil.... I'm glad there is not one near me because I would eat here every day. They have hot subs, cold subs and much more on the menu. All worthy of a few extra miles travel from where ever you are from!!!

The best subs in the area by far! Fast and courteous service. Salads and soups also very good, a little higher priced than some chains, but well worth it.
