Beautiful large building housing the busiest lunch stop in the area. Had the medium meatball marinara today, meatballs large tasty and the sauce so full of flavor. Add onions peppers and olives and you have a meal to enjoy. Quick, made to order right in front of you. You gotta go.

Anything that DiBellas creates is delicious but the grilled Turkey Reuben is so delish. My son went to RIT and introduced us to DiBellas, it s sill his favorite and he lives in NYC and misses it! We were on our way to Buffalo and hungry so we diverted a bit and stopped for lunch. Had a family member that... More

Sub was very good, but we went at lunch and i feel like they needed more than one person on the register

I was introduced to Dibella's subs in college. Since then it is a must stop every time in in town. Fresh baked rolls, amazing assortment of meats, and friendly staff. Don't miss this place.

Great spot for a quality express lunch to go or eat in. Large indoor booth seating area and attractive outdoor patio offer plenty of space and options. High pressed-tin ceiling and white tile floor evokes nostalgia for traditional deli experience and creates a feeling of spaciousness that accommodates a large volume of customers comfortably. Don't be discouraged by long lines:... More

I love meatball subs and DiBella's doesn't disappoint. The bread sets all their subs apart from other Rochester favorites! Don't forget the wonderfully soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie! It's the only thing delicious enough to follow my favorite sub! Don't forget to join the loyalty bread club & get a free sub!

I've been a fan of DiBella's for years, and their expansive Henrietta location fully meets the typically excellent standards of the other restaurants. The freshly baked bread is superb, the subs are delicious, the service is right on, and the chocolate cookies are my favorite in the world (which is saying a lot). Highly recommended for lunch or dinner!

This time-honored Rochester deli is a sandwich-lovers dream. They offer homemade breads and a myriad of fresh ingredients , along with tasty soups and salads. Sandwiches can be made on sub rolls, wraps or panini. Their signature sandwich, The Godfather, features Genoa salami, capicola and spicy ham. Prices run from $6.49 for a small to 9.99 for a large sandwich.... More

When I need a meal deal, I usually go to DiBella's Old Fashioned Submarines. You can get the sub, chips, and a drink for an attractive price. The quality is outstanding! I recommend the tuna on the dark bread.

My absolute favorite sub place. Their market meal is the perfect size. You can't go wrong with any of their soups. When choosing a sub, they're all good but make sure you try their sub oil! A little on the higher side for cost but worth every penny!
