If you like Mediterranean food, this is the spot to go in Ithaca. It is rather small but that allows for good dining conversation, nice wine & beer selection and delicious food. I have enjoyed the Falaffel Salad, the Taboullah Salad and the very moist and tasty chicken skewers, great hummus and the rice pudding is to die for. The prices are very good and you can not go wrong if you want a nice quiet meal in Ithaca.

Wonderful menu, great service; convenient location with sidewalk seating during the summer season. Lots of vegetarian/vegan options, as well as all of the classic meat dishes.

Very happy to have discovered this place. Had the $6 lunch special, a gyro salad and lentil soup. The baklava is amazing. Returned a few weeks later for dinner. The atmosphere and music was great. Had a great greek salad although it could have used more than two olives and I would have preferred the tzatziki dressing.

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary. We wanted something that was different, yet where we felt comfortable. We would recommend making reservations, as from the looks of it, this is a very popular place. Our servers were exceptionally friendly and promptly sat us upon arrival. The hummus was amazing, and my husband and I cannot wait to go back for more. We will definitely be back!

In a word: YUM! The Mediterranean Cuisine at Sahara was out of this world! The hummus was sublime! And, the falafel worth returning again and again. The gyro wrap was reportedly delicious and the lentil soup was fragrant and satisfying. And, the desserts? Heavenly. Great, friendly service. Definitely recommend!
