You can always count on them for a good sub

Hot or cold, the assortment of subs at DiBella's is the best around. They offer a great selection of home baked sub rolls (3 different sizes, and many bread types). All choice of toppings are FREE .

I stopped in for lunch during my travels. The Dagwood was my favorite and the bread excellent with several choices. I chose the multigrain with the Italian dressing and just a touch of mayo. The service is excellent taking your order. Checkout was a bit abrupt, but it was very busy. I would definitely return.

DiBella's makes wonderful subs, they are generous with their servings, and the bread is delicious!! Only complaint I have is that their cookies have too much chocolate...I seem to be the only one complaining! My husband and I visit DiBella's about once a month. The bread and the vegetables are always fresh. When I worked in Henrietta, my work team... More

First. Your question of "is this the best meal you ever had in a resturant" and I answered no because you gave me nothing to compare with. I.e. Sub shop vs. elegant dining. As far as suburb shops, YES DiBellas is great. The resturant is clean, bright and friendly. You can watch them make your sub the way you want... More

Everything is fresh at DiBella's. I usually go to the one off of Ridgeway. If you want a good sub then go to DiBella's.

As subs go the bread is very fresh, the lettuce is crisp. Very tasty.. They do not skimp on the meat and the counter staff is friendly. Worth a trip.

I have never had a sub that I didn't like at DiBellas. Fast service, quality food, really nice atmosphere. I especially love their rolls. I see other reviews mention fresh food, and that is the truth.

We went to DiBellas in the afternoon for lunch and ordered subs. You just go up to the counter and order. They have speciality subs on their own bread.The people waiting on you are very professional and know their jobs, and they are very fast so you don't have to wait long for your order. They put plenty of everything... More

Rumor has it that this small deli sold the recipe of the bread they create submarines to a large supermarket chain called Wegmans'. The subs here are the best around. People travel a distance to order one. No skimping on the meat, cheese, etc. Their bread is spectacular. It really is the best - and you can get wheat rather... More
