I always make it a priority to come here when I'm in town. Really enjoy the sandwiches and soups they have as its nothing like what we get out in the Midwest.

Hands down, the best sub in Rochester. The bread and fresh meats are simply amazing. I highly recommend the Godfather for anyone looking for an authentic Italian sub. I now live out of town, but any time I am in Rochester, I have to stop in for a meal. Another must visit restaurant in Rochester!!!

A great place to run in to and get a wonderful submarine for your dinner- when you are running late. The variety and helpful staff make it an in and out type of of convenience that can't be beat.They have been around for some years- and the great products have maintained their consistency.

Disappointing. Ordered a chicken parm with extra sauce and there was sauce inside but only a few chopped bits of chicken. I felt like I was hooker-nanied! Stay away from the shop if you like a lot of the key meat in ur sub. Everything is portioned and weighed - at grandma portions! Over and out!

Really popular place to pick up Subs. They give massive helpings of cheese on your sub and even their smallest size is quite filling. Excellent.

This restaurant offers an extensive menu of fabulous sandwiches. The sandwiches are large so you might want to share or have some to take home with you. All sandwiches are made to order by your preferences. Lines can be long around prime lunch and dinner times, but well worth the wait. Prices vary from "cheap eats" to mid-range depending on... More

Where do I start...great prices, variety, excellent service, very fast, and oh so good. I recommend getting one of their deals: half panini/soup. I recommend the reuben panini. Don't be turned away if there is a line, it moves fast! The food is worth the wait! You'll never want to go Subway again after trying DiBella's.

I finally got to eat here and the sub was great. It was easy to order and fast. It wasn't the best sub I've ever had but it was good. Definitely no complaints!

Large, roomy, lots of tables, warehouse urban style decor, and more importantly, clean. After trying another local similar style place I was more than happy to return to DiBella's! By comparison, the veggie wraps are HUGE! My hubby took the other half to work with him, the wrap was that big and fat! Loaded with lots of different veggies and... More

Stopped by for a pre-graduation lunch and was surprised by how busy this place was. This isn't your run of the mill sub shop, it's spacious, clean and has a great selection of salads and subs to choose from. Didn't have to wait long for a "hot" sub. A fast and easy place to go if you want a step... More
