Dibellas started out as a corner grocery store in Rochester NY. They have since expanded to almost 30 shops in New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Dibella's specializes in hoagies/grinders/subs/po-boys/ or whatever the hell you want to call them.
A new Dibellas just opened up a few miles from me and I was looking forward to trying out their wares. Would it be utter garbage like Subway, or a quality sub like at Jersey Mikes? So over the last two months I have sampled a few different types of hoagies at Dibellas and let me tell you I was more than pleased with how good the subs are at Dibellas.
|Where you place your order|
|Large Meatball $8.99|
The meatball sub came with big ass meatballs smothered in marinara sauce and provolone cheese. A lot of other places you can tell the meatballs are frozen pre-made balls of crap. Dibellas meatballs taste as close to homemade as you will ever have.

Dibellas is a great value when you take into account price,quality, and quantity. One large sub from Dibellas is enough to feed 2 normal people or 3 skinny chicks. While I still love an Italian sub from Jersey Mikes, their prices are getting out of hand. Check out my review of Jersey Mikes HERE. Since I did my review of Jersey Mikes, their prices have gone up considerably, and you now pay over $11.00 for a large sub.
Well, I never thought that a small sandwich chain out of NY would wind up making the best hoagies in Pittsburgh. If you haven't been to Dibellas yet, get there. You will not be disappointed.
On a side note I have had a bunch of people tell me that I need to try an Italian hoagie from Dannys Pizza in the South Hills. Well hopefully I will get there sometime in the near future and we can find out who truly has the best hoagie in Pittsburgh.
