We found this market across the street from our hotel--it is simply amazing! Imported Italian goods such as pasta and cheeses; over a dozen types of homemade sausages and every iteration of deli meat imaginable. We went there for sandwiches and were not disappointed--the sandwiches...More

My grandfather, my father, and now I frequent Rubino’s. Rubino’s was a family tradition growing up. You can get the best fresh ground cheese and fresh sausages in Rochester. During busier times fresh items are not always guaranteed to be on the shelf.
