“Good for a Quick Bite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We had to kill about an hour in Rochester and needed to find a quick bite to hold us over for dinner. We always try and eat at local places and found this one nearby on our GPS. Nice and clean inside. Lots of menu choices which different speciality sandwiches. Service was a little awkward as the staff seemed a bit irritated that we did not know the menu nor how to service worked (order some sandwiches there and take with you, others are delivered to your table.) Our three year old had a small turkey and cheese on regular bread. Good bread and hard to mess up when there are only two ingredients. My wife and I split a buffalo chicken sub. First it came out without cheese so we had to send it back. They made it right, but the sub was still relatively uneventful. This restaurant served it's purpose for us (quick meal to hold us until dinner) but i'm not too sure we'd be back if given the opportunity.

“Great Submarines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Buns baked fresh everyday and they are the best I have ever had, outstanding selection I had the Cheese steak (med. size) and it was huge and delicious, you do not want to miss out on the best Sub ever so visit soon and you will visit often.

“best subs in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

the Godfather and the Classic Italian are our favorites. Generous amounts of meats and cheeses, choice of various breads, numerous condiments not just the usual lettuce and tomato. A large sub is more than enough for 2 to share.

“Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I have to go here everytime I come to Rochester. Great quality meat on the subs, but the best part has to be the homemade bread!

“Best subs in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

I've never heard of anyone talking about the best place to get subs and meaning anyplace but DiBella's. There's a reason for that - they have good subs!
