DiBella's has the best sub sandwiches. If you have never been to one, be sure to remedy that immediately.

Before moving from the Rochester area I was a frequent visitor to DiBella ' in Perinton. Had a chance to be back in town for a week and managed to eat there twice, as wonderful as I remember. Took a fist timer and he said it was the best sub he ever had

DiBella's has several locations in and around the Rochester, NY area. Everytime we go to Rochester to visit, we have lunch at a DiBella's. Their subs cannot be beat. The bread is awesome...so tasty, fresh and delicious. The bread is what makes their subs stand out! They come is 3 sizes. Their lobster bisque is also very good. If you... More

DiBella's has been a family favorite for years. Their subs are exceptionally well put together and filling. Their fresh-baked breads are delicious and so are their home made chocolate chip cookies.

I always come here when I come to Rochester, few restaurants can make a sub like Dibella's. The staff is always friendly as well.

They have remodeled and the place is bright and welcoming! Their subs are made with an abundance of meats and cheese, and they have delicious sides to go with the subs. They have increased the menu and their fresh baked bread adds to the great taste of the sandwich. Great place fir a quick bite at reasonable prices.

My husband and I love Dibellas- but lately- every sub we get there is soggy and falls apart. Some of the young people working there seem to not care about putting together the subs correctly. It's good when you catch one of the older people making the subs and actually drain the peppers... Etc before putting them on the bread.

DiBella's makes their own bread and it is good. This is a true sub shop that makes Subway look generic and bad. The large subs are much bigger than a foot long and they put a lot more meat on it. I wish they had DiBella's out west.

Typical sub shop with same old "old time" motif. Why are so many sub shops faux 1950's joints? Anyway the subs are good and there is a varied menu. The sub rolls are too "bready" for my taste but they don't skimp on the meat! It's a good place for a sub, particularly if you like huge sub rolls.
