Always fantastic, really consistent and fresh. Italian sausage was really good, usually get a Godfather or cappicola.

DiBella's bakes their bread fresh in the store and you taste that perfect bread with every bite. My favorite classic sub is the Godfather on everything bread. My favorite hot sub is the Philly Cheesesteak! Neat place and great employees. Friendly and clean.

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.
