DiBella’s is the home of the old school submarine. Imagine if all the cultural stereotypes you’d find at Buca Di Bepo decided to open a sub shop with a Goodfellas super-fan. Its a place that’s too Italian for Joe Pesci. Every sandwich seems to be designed with one goal, fill you up. DiBella’s is Americas substitute for having an Italian grandmother.
