We are always looking for new and better pizza restaurants. This one has the same name as one in Endicott, New York and say they are related. Great service and great pizza. Joan likes this place best so far but I still like the homey atmosphere and service as well as the pizza at the Endicott business. Highly recommend either... More

Reasonable pizza and great subs and wings. They also now have a bar with music or comedy on the weekends. Great local place to enjoy good food and company. Staff is pleasant.

Ok I come here for the wifi and regular pizza. I like to come here once per week put cannot all the time. Many don't know they have gluten free pizza. With their great sauce it is fantastic.

Family outing, simply looking for a nice simple dinner. All par for the coarse pizzeria food. Don't make the mistake of ordering off the entree menu. They do pizza and fries and it's exactly what you expect. Order a high end steak and you'll be told that this is an acceptable slab if steak. Ugggg. That's not meat. I'm okay... More

Informal place - we just wanted a quick pizza - got what we wanted and more - great service, quick, and this in the middle of a snow storm! Not much going on Sundays, so of your limited Owego spots, this should be on the list. Also lots of craft brews..

This is not just a pizza joint. It was an informal Italian restaurant with a relaxed, pleasant atmosphere. The waitresses were very friendly and efficient. The food was great and plentiful! Each dinner came with a large salad and dessert. This is the place to go!

We went as two couples on a Friday night. It was really busy and lively with lots of hustle and bustle and some live music drifting through from the bar next door. We were seated and served drinks almost immediately. We went for a main dinner that comes with a salad with choice of dressing, fresh warm bread and dessert.... More

Staying in Owego for a week, Out looking for something to eat, and bam, there it is, a pizza joint! OK, this place is not fancy, but one thing we noticed right away, it was busy, and that is a good sign. We had a small pizza that was huge, but it hit the spot! Overall, great service, great taste,... More

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.

Thank Michael I
