Great sub!

Excellent tasting sub! Great price. Great seating area. We need these in Canada! I'd definitely return to try a different sandwich. This trip our family tried the Godfather sub, Caprese Melt panini, lobster bisque soup and a salad. Everyone was super happy with their food.

Went for lunch while in the area working. This is the place that Wegmans copied for their subs. No wonder they did. Great choices for subs and food. Rolls were obviously fresh baked and you have a nice selection. Cold cuts were very fresh.

And yet another non-triple D. The tripadvisor reviews and yes, following a craving of mine brought me to this sub-chain in Rochester, NY. This trip brought me to DiBella's Old Fashion Subs. The fresh baked bread was a definite delight! Beyond that, I would say, really just your typical meat, cheese, and then the veggies. A lot of food for... More

Wonderful for a quick lunch or dinner. Fresh ingredients which is refreshing! The salads are wonderful for an alternative to subs.

In-store baked Fantastically crusty sub rolls pilled high with fresh cut meats, cheeses and veggies. You can get them cold or hot. Tons of choices. Always clean, I'm there several times a month. Never had a bad sub hot or cold. And of course ultra fast service.

I remember this place being fantastic however I was rushed through line just to get a sloppy messy sandwich that was definitely lacking.. If I'm standing in a long line for a meal please take your time to do it right.. Should have gone to wegmans

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
