Great pizza and side salad

Ordered the 11 inch pizza which was the right size for 2 people to share if not ravenous. Very well done and neat crust. The side salad was a nice gem and good value also.

..nothing special. We had an average lunch with panini and personal pizza. If looking for a good meal, go there, but we didn't have anything exceptional enough to go there specifically for.

Great: food, atmosphere, service and prices. Everyone in our group had something different including: pasta, grilled chicken salad, egg plant parm. Everyone chowed down and left happy.

We were up in Ithaca for the weekend and went to our trusty Tripadvisor app to find a place for dinner. My husband loves Italian but is fussy about the quality. He was dubious when when we pulled up because the place looked like your average chain place (*note- this is not a chain but I wish it was so... More

We went here on a Saturday evening, so it was quite full. Luckily the restaurant is large enough that there was no wait for a table. We started with the arancini and my daughter who traveled to Italy this spring, found them to be just as wonderful as those she had there. I had the chicken parmesan, which was so... More

Restaurant is near a mall, which isn't always good, however.........nice and clean, greeted by hostess. Waitress pleasant, attentive and provided the "right" amount of service. Side salads were huge and served in a chilled bowl, fresh crusty bread was served with a dipping oil. We shared a specialty pizza -crust was crisp and awesome, toppings fresh and tasty. Lady at...

This restaurant has a variety of Italian dishes, but we chose to order pizza. It was great! The pizzas have a medium-thick crust. Two people can probably split a pizza. We each ordered our own pizza, because we wanted different toppings (there are a lot of options), and we couldn't finish it all. We took the rest home and enjoyed... More

Two in the party. Both of us enjoyed our meals. One was a chicken pasta special of the evening, and the other was a eggplant manaconti dish. Both very enjoyable. Will go back to this restaurant if I am in the area again

We loved this restaurant! So much so, we went twice during our short stay in Ithaca. Food was delicious and wonderful service. Our kids loved their pizzas, the Meyer lemon and ricotta ravioli was to die for!!! Great value as well, very affordable for our family of 5.
