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. We had the market meal special, half a sub or panini - any sandwich ingredient you like - and a large cup of soup for $7.49. You can also get a half salad with soup for this price. The lobster bisque was delicious, and the panini - even at a half - was so large neither one of us could finish. All the delis are self-serve, you go through the line and customize your sandwich, then take it back to the table. Very crowded at lunch time, but worth the wait!

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!

I really likes mu Papa Gino salad but the Rubin Panini with the long blond hair really tainted my experience. I will give then the benefit of the doubt and assume that all sandwiches do not include hair.

The environment in the restaurant is really nice. Old fashion looking design.

I always make it a priority to come here when I'm in town. Really enjoy the sandwiches and soups they have as its nothing like what we get out in the Midwest.
