Good food, pricier than most

The food was good (not excellent) but I had sticker shock when the waitress brought out our bill. We had a couple slices of pizza, an appetizer and a beer or two. The food was brought out on paper plates and cheap plastic basket. If I had really known what our total bill was going to be I would... read more

Having never been to this place in Owego,NY let me tell you folks....this place in a "hidden" GEM! Located on a 1way street I now know why most of the parking spots were taken along the street. Now no need to worry you wont need a reservation to get a table but on a nice spring or summer day you... More

A lot of good dishes and some not so much, but all in all the food is good. I can't stand the crowded seating argument however and the ambiance is not to my liking. As for the bar side, its a lot better. I guess it boils down to not bad, but nothing special.

I ordered fish and fries for 10.99 and only got one very small fish and the fries almost took up all the room, the fries were very salty and soggy with parsley over them anyways I will not be ordering from u guys again!

We had lunch here yesterday with friends, we were pleasantly surprised! We knew the pizza would be good but didn't know that they had such an extensive menu and the food was great! From steak to stuffed shells! In a great downtown neighborhood with great little shops! Definitely will be back soon!!

I live next door and the wonderful aroma tests my discipline. If I weren't a health nut, eating mostly vegetables, I'd probably eat here daily. My opinion is that they have one of the best pizza crusts ever...crispy, flavorful. They are happy to add broccoli or other vegetable for you. Their "combo sub" is really flavorful...warm sausage, onions, peppers and... More

Just OK for the occasional pizza slices. Food borders on meh to just average at best. There have been times when I've had good food although memories of this are not current.
