Great Pizza and eggplant

We've eaten here several times and their pizza may be the best. The eggplant sub is good as well. Eat!

Good NY style pie. Friendly service. Plenty of quality toppings available. If you buy it by the slice, the drawback is it won't be **fresh** out of the oven. Still good.

Ordered 2 large pizzas for our demanding family. Service was friendly accurate and fast and the pizza was VERY good! We stopped at lunch time two days before Christmas. The restaurant was pleasantly warm and busy. Our first visit - we will return the next time we are in town.

I was disappointed when I discovered the wifi did not function. I enjoy the pizza and other food here. I will return for I like the sauce here. Ended up going down the street to The Owego Kitchen. Wifi worked there. They had nice lunches.

We went to Originals for a comedy show(Tony Liberati opened and was very very funny followed by Moody McCarthy who was great as well) .The show was 21+. We had pizza and drinks. The pizza was very good and the toasted almond martinis were excellent. It was a very friendly atmosphere and the service was excellent. I would recommend and... More

Stopped in on the way home to Rochester for lunch with the boys. Saw the reviews and we were not disappointed. Great place. Ordered a Brooklyn style pizza. Wow! Saying it was delicious doesn't do it justice. One of the best we've had. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Food very average and over priced. Good beer, lovely staff. Everything tasted as if it came out of a jar or a tin. Very uninspired.

I visit often and the new bar/lounge area is great. One of the few places in Owego that won't grumble at you if you walk in after 9:00 pm.

7-25-15 This is a great place for an Italian Sub and Chef Salad. Huge quantities. The 8.99 Chef Salad also came with a loaf of fresh bread. The Italian sub was also on a fresh roll. $6.99 Both were delicious. They really have an extensive menu. Down the street they have a river walk to walk off the meal.
