Rubino's Italian Foods

our Featured Business for the holiday season


This month we would like to recognize Rubino's Italian Foods, Inc. as our Featured Business! Rubino's has been a staple in the Irondequoit community and part of many traditions for Italian-American families all throughout Rochester. From their amazing selection of cannoli, cheeses and subs, to Italian imports, Rubino's brings quality food with a neighborhood feel.

Over 60 years ago, Peter Rubino decided he wanted to fulfil his dream of owning an Italian Food Market. He purchased land in Irondequoit where he saw a future for a growing community. Peter's daughter Phyllis joined him in 1975 and Rubino's moved from Portland Avenue over to their current East Ridge Road location to expand. Joseph Rubino joined the business soon after and he and Phyllis began running the business in 1995.

Rubino's normally staffs around sixty employees, many native to the Irondequoit area. The Italian Food Market is true to its heritage and carries only top-quality domestic foods and imports. Currently Rubino's has ten different departments in their food market including; Paninos (Sub shop), Pasticceria (Pastries & Gelato), Café', Casa Del Formaggio (Cheese Shop), Delicatessen (Deli), Pizzeria, Paneficio (Bakery), grocery, and Italian Apparel and Novelties. Rubino's also offers catering for special events.

When we asked owners Joe and Phyllis what they wanted the public to know about Rubino's they responded, “That we do a fantastic job in every department we have. We strive on customer service, prices, and top-notch quality products. We want you to feel the difference and the unique experience when you come in to our place".


You can look through Rubino's menu, browse their grocery items, and purchase from their online apparel and novelty store right on their website, They have also partnered with Grubhub and Uber Eats to make it even easier to enjoy their delicious food. You can also check out photos of their food and follow them on Facebook.

Rubino's is located at 1304 E Ridge Rd, Rochester, New York 14621 in Irondequoit.
