Meatball sub, meatball sub, meatball sub!!

YUM. I love dibella's. They do meatball subs better than wegmans. Spacious, clean, friendly employees. My only complaint is that there isn't one closer to my home!! Ps.Make sure you get mozzarella!!

I ordered a shaved steak sub with mozzarella cheese and onions, from the first bite to the last there was steak, cheese and onion, nothing wasted and the portion was perfect not to overload the bread.... simply Awesome!

They do have in house baked bread which is very good. The prices are a bit high, but if you get a good person making your sub, you will get a fair amount of fillings.

My sub there was nothing special. The roll was hard and stale. Meat was very ordinary. Wegman's subs are much fresher and more substantial. Amiel's are the best though with delicious fresh rolls and very good in-house prepared beef.

These folks definitely have the best sub rolls in town, and probably the best subs. I had a small roast beef sub here yesterday, and they have a superb horseradish mayonnaise that really puts the perfect "bite" onto the taste. Very enjoyable, plus they have enough staffers to have your order ready in under five minutes. Very nice!

this is the place to go for a submarine sandwich. the bread no matter what kind you get is sooooo good and fresh. the sandwich is not skimpy like some other places. they pack it full of meat and cheese and all the good fixins. this is a great place for a quick meal at a decent price.

We ate lunch here on a whim - I found it with good reviews on google. It did not disappoint. We ordered a lunch special $6.99. We both had soup - the lobster bisque was AWESOME! And half a hot panini. It was really, really good. I would definitely recommend eating here. I just wish we had one near us!... More

The one thing that seems to separate DiBella's from other sub places is their fantastic homemade rolls. Crunchy on the outside, soft and tasty inside. My turkey sub was packed with meat and the toppings were plentiful.

Every time I have business int eh Rochester area I try to make a point to have one meal at a local DiBellas Sub Shop. They are far and away the most consistently authentic and delicious Italian subs that I have had anywhere in the US.
