I absolutely love this place! While it is more Italian supermarket than it is restaurant they do sell some of the best prepared foods, baked goods, and gelato that can be found in Rochester. I highly suggest their Mediterranean olive salads, pistachio gelato, and fresh cannolis. They also serve fresh subs (though i have never tried them i hear they... More

We eat there, and take bundles of food for home. Wonderful selections, of fresh food and subs at the deli. Congenial staff. We're there often. Eat in or take out hot food is delicious and very reasonable.

Ordered a full assorted sub platter for 12 people on short notice - came with everything - their awesome salads, all the paper goods, soda, chips and canollis! Best Italian Deli around and the customer service is awesome - they aim to please!

Rubinos is the best Italian deli in town. Great meats (wide selection in the butcher shop and in the meat case), cold cuts, fresh Italian salads, cookies, bread, and on and on. They carry many specialty items (food and nonfood) and often have a tasting table as your walk in the door to entice you to try/buy something new. Subs... More

This place smells so delicious upon entering. I went into buy chicken cutlets breaded and cooked at the deli. They are the best. You can get them plain with just breaded material on them or breaded with boss sauce. With boss sauce is my fav. You will not be disappointed. It was so busy at the deli that I thought... More

Rubino's has a wide selection of authentic Italian foods and groceries. The butcher shoppe has an excellent selection and I've never been disappointed with the quality of the items I've purchased. They have a large selection of cheeses and the deli has great items as well. They bake their own bread and also carry some from other local bakeries. You... More
