Pizza Aroma offers some great pizza slices. It is one of my favorite places to go for slices when in downtown Ithaca. The plain is actually very good, as is the garlic. The slices can get a bit pricey, though, as you start adding toppings and getting more complicated. If you stick with a plain slice, you'll get a good... More

We ordered a gluten free pizza and a regular one. The regular was very good, and the gluten eaters enjoyed it a lot. Everything was high quality, the sauce, cheese, crust and veggies. Cooked very well. The gluten free wasn't as great, in that the crust was rather cracker like and the pizza itself not cooked as much as I... More

Very good, fresh food. Pizza looks great too. We came across this place almost by accident. I couldn't believe how busy they were and it wasn't even noon when we sat down. They also have some tables outside to enjoy the weather. I can't wait to stop back again to try something else I've never heard of before. Thanks for... More

I've been coming here for years - often with kids after music lessons at nearby CSMA or McNeil Music - and contend it's the best by-the-slice place in town. Toppings are really creative and generously portioned. Love their meat stuffed! As an added bonus, the owners are from El Salvador so they have great Latin American food - carne guisada,... More

The pizza and salad we ordered were both very good. They exceeded our expectations. Staff was very friendly, gave as a menu as soon as we walked in. The confusion came after we ordered and we were not asked to pay-- or given a bill after we ate. We sat for some time before approaching the counter and asking for... More

Ordered takeout consisting of a large pizza (no toppings) and a Greek salad. The pizza was exactly what I was looking for - NY style. I was very happy with it -- tasty and lots of cheese. The Greek salad was not the best I've had, just okay.

Pizza Aroma is the place to go for fast, excellent take-out pizza. They offer a super variety of toppings and can even accommodate you if you are vegan or gluten-intolerant.

This is hands down the best pizza in Ithaca. They have HUGE slices with interesting toppings that are always delicious.

I found this place on Happy Cow because I was looking for vegan restaurants in Ithaca, as we were just passing through on our east coast road trip. I loved the town but this place was the highlight of my trip! I've always had a hard time finding good vegan food, but this little place doesn't look like much, as... More

i visited on a Saturday night at 9pm. They were slammed. At that point, they had sold the last slice of cheese pizza and did not have another pizza in the oven to meet the demand from customers who, like me, were in a hurry from one event to another. They were understaffed and had limited capacity to deal with... More
