Great sandwiches n subs

I like how Dibellas create new sandwiches. None of other Dibellas do that. I wondered why... One thing ordering line need improve for deaf people get fast order from long lines or not long line.

Here are some true sandwich artists. I can't explain why but I could make a similar sandwich at home and it wouldn't taste nearly as good... Lots of choices for both hot and cold subs, wraps, salads,soups, munchies, etc...and you can load them up the way you like them with the workers handling orders quickly and efficiently. They have lots... More

Needed a quick lunch with the family after a tour of RIT. Didn't want fast food. This place was perfect with a very diverse menu. Everyone loved their sandwiches. Glad to see they've opened franchise locations in Michigan as well.

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 . We use them for lunch time meetings. they make a great assorted tray with all the condiments and extras on the side. It'... More

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.
