We were in Ithaca touring the colleges. Cornell is my wife's alma mater and with those great memories she treated us to a visit to "the" Nines. Order the deep dish pizza and enjoy your friends and family.

Stopped in for dinner as part of a trip to cornell university. It's been a long time. The pizza is still as good as ever. The place has not lost its charm.

We made a reservation the night before for 47 people, 20 girls under 15, our hockey team and parents. They seated us all together, served water and had our pizzas ready and served within 20 minutes. We had preordered a variety for the adults and cheese & pepperonie for the girls. Just like a production line. Perfect service. We went... More

I recently went to the Nines with my family for a reunion. Although we were a larger party, we were thankful that they sat us within 5 minutes. Unfortunately, that was the only time we received quick service. We ordered immediately once we were seated. However, it took an hour for us to get just our appetizers. Not only that,... More

Our table got 3 pizzas but I can't review the pizza as I didn't eat......only had beer. The Nine's is very lucky to have Matt representing their restaurant/bar. I wish... More

Best pizza place in town, by far! Delicious deep dish pizza. Service is good but sometimes a little slow. I recommend ordering over the phone 15-20 minutes before showing up. Totally worth the wait, though!

Go for the pizza, not the other menu items. Expect a thick sweet dough with plentiful toppings. Absolutely delicious if your taste in pizza allows for this derivation. For 35 years their deep dish slice has held a special place for me. It's a college bar so expect noise, crowds and slow service.
