Didn't realize it at the time, but this is actually a chain. We found one in Cleveland on the drive home. It was terrific. The sandwiches are made on crusty Italian bread baked on premises, and meats and vegetables that could not be fresher. The sandwiches are massive. I made the mistake of ordering a regular one, and it could... More

Hope you have an empty belly because the subs here are very filling and delicious. Freshly prepared with nice bread rolls and good meats and veggie toppings you can't go wrong here. Service is fast and furious and you will leave here full!

You won't find a sub quite like DiBella's subs. The quality of the bread is what sets them apart. The subs are stuffed and the price for quantity is very reasonable. A great stop for picnic food or a sit down meal!

Grabbed some subs and sandwiches before driving home from RIT. These were very good subs and sandwiches. Cute place inside. If you want a good sub, this is probably the best place to go.

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.
