Visited this vineyard among several others and decided to grab a quick bite at the restaurant . What a delightful surprise. This place doesn't look like much, more like sharing a meal on a neighbor's porch than a commercial enterprise, hadn't read any reviews before hand, so did not expect much. Was so impressed with the great pizzas (both the veggie & bbq meat) as well as the cheese and meat appetizers & the desserts (banana foster & cinnamon sugar). As the other reviews noted, all the ingredients are fresh & locally sourced & preparation simple, clean & delicious. The service staff was friendly, knowledgeable & efficient. We liked it so much we returned the next day with another couple, who were as happy with the meal as we were. The sparkling cranberry wine was light & refreshing too!

Our first stop on the wine tour of Cayuga Lake was at the Cayuga Ridge winery. It was time for lunch, so we thought we'd give the onsite restaurant a try before we moved on.

All this place does is pizza or flatbread, but the dedication to artisan pizza shows. We chose the BBQ chicken pizza, made with local ingredients and cooked right out front in the big beautiful copper oven. The pie was about 10", and perfect for two to share. We also tried the cheese sampler of local cheeses with their flatbread, local honey, and fig jam.

Both were "amazingly amazing" and I will be dreaming about this pizza for months to come. The BBQ sauce was from a local chef - I wanted to bring some home with me, but we couldn't take it on the plane... Fortunately, it can be ordered from the winery or from some of the local shops.

Brilliant place and super-friendly people.

The winery has been a favorite of my husband and I's for a number of years. This was our first time back in the Finger Lakes since Copper Oven opened and the food was Excellent!!!! Yummy!!! My husband doesnt normally like BBQ Chicken Pizza but he ordered a 2nd he thought the first was so good. I loved their Squash/Veggie Pie. Of course you get a nice glass of wine and sit on the patio, such a great lunch. We had our 2 med. sized dogs with us and they let them sit with us at the table (in the corner out of the way). Our only suggestion was they should give the option of a Pepperoni pizza!

It is now 2 years ago when we first tried home made pizza at the Copper Oven. And i still long for that natural wooden smell, organic ingredients and funny shape. Served with cold white wine - am sure you will not get something alike on that road!

The Copper Oven makes great pizzas! It is always great to go here and try their new unique pizzas and experience such warm and great service from everyone. I love coming here and will definitely be going back for some more yummy pizza and Gewürztraminer wine from Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery!
