Pizza Has Never Been Better

I have been going to the Nines for almost 30 years. It started off as kind of a Granola place for locals and some Cornell Students. I have always loved it. When it is good there is nothing better and when it isn't, it is still pretty good. If you are looking for fancy and expensive, look elsewhere... read more

Recently I went to the nines restaurant with a few friends to grab some pizza. We had a party of four people with us and when we walked in there was one table in the entire restaurant, and we waited about ten minutes to be seated. The waitress that we had was very unsociable and borderline rude. She seemed like... More

More or a bar than a restaurant. The wings and deep dish pizza were very good. Wait staff were inattentive and more concerned with their phones and own conversations.

Long story short I get there and pick up our pizza (deep dish, incredible) awesome service at the bar cool atmosphere friendly staff. Eat your pizza at... More

Pizza wise - this place cant be beat. Excellent sauce, great dough / crust and its always served piping hot. Gotta love the square shape! Pizza's come with a healthy portion of the requested toppings as well. Always a good selection of toppings to chose from. Family wise - lunch would be a great option, as later in the evening...

The greatest deep dish pizza Ever! We enjoyed this pizza years ago in college and came back for dinner midweek. We had the deep dish mushroom pizza with Buffalo style chicken wings and Magic Hat beers... fantastic! Waiting for the kitchen to work it's magic built our appetites though watching the food arrive from the upstairs kitchen via dumb waiter... More

You will wait for your pizza, but it is well worth the wait! GREAT house specials. Bonus: many local beers.

I ate here during their first week in business and it became a regular stop when I lived in Ithaca. I've never ever ordered anything other than their deep dish pizza and I think I've always had a beer with it. :) The pizza comes with extra cheese standard, and back in the day, we used to get tired just...

Excellent taste to the deep dish pizza with the caramelized crust and plenty of pepperoni. We were the only ones there for a late lunch so service was quick and timely.

I left Ithaca a few years ago, after teaching at Ithaca College for over 20 years. I do not miss the awful weather, the appalling roads, nor its state of being in my opinion terminally hip. But! Along with its gorges and its Wegman's I DO miss The Nines, a revered, wonderful and delightfully dumpy college bar near Cornell. It... More
