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.

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
