I love visiting here when I'm in Owego NY. It's a great place to eat and enjoy dinner with family or friends. Food is amazing! Speedie chicken salad or sub are worth the drive from anywhere. Pizza looks awesome. Beer is sold here but the atmosphere is family friendly. Large selection of food and hand cut fries are great!

Big selection. Tasty food . Reasonably priced. Very friendly and helpful service (thanks Jackie!). Veal cutlets were very tasty. We ordered them with a side of pasta - Beware of the huge portions. We could have fed 2 more people... Alfredo pasta was delicious.

Nothing fancy or experimental. Just good basic Italian food. Pasta is fresh, pizza is thin American style, and the dining room is a classic. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. And in good New York style, the portions are huge. We got three meals out of one hot Italian sub, and two meals from my gnocchi order.

The pizza and wings are absolutely delicious. I recommend the dozen wings tossed in garlic and oil ($7.75). The coffee tastes pretty good, too. Service was very good and friendly.

Typical Italian lunch menu here, but quickly served for those on the go either at lunch or on the go when shopping.. Had a slice, salad, and drink for less than seven bucks including tax and tip. I will say the salad was better than the pizza but would go back and eat there again...In a separate building next door... More

I got the special of the night - salad, prime rib with a big bowl of home made fries and a piece of cheez cake for only $14,95. Service was great too.

My kids and I decided to get take-out for dinner. I called Original's, placed my order, and it was delivered promptly. The food was hot and delicious. We were happy with our meals, which included salads, bread, and dessert.

I work at a large company in Owego close to the restaurant. I stopped in last week to place my order and arrange for the delivery details. I ordered a sheet pizza, a pan of tossed salad, and a pan of lasagna. The meal was delivered right on time and the young woman who made the delivery was pleasant and... More
