My family and I went to dinner here and we were not impressed, even though everyone says we had to go here. The red sauce tasted like it came out of a Ragu jar and the portion size was so small we left feeling extremely hungry still. To top it off though our waiter practically ignored us. It took so long to get our water and bread at the beginning, our food came a minute later. The bread was rock hard, we couldn't even eat it, so we asked for more and it came at the same time as the check, so late. The waiter tended to every other table, talking to them for minutes on end, but ignored us, I'm not sure why. I would not eat here again.

Only gluten free pizza in Ithaca...ordered margherita and it was good even if it was small. Extra 4 dollars for g free would be fine if it was a normal size and not personal size. Salad again very good but 30 bucks for a pizza and salad is a little high

Had the sangria which was not strong (which I like) and it was wonderful. My son had the cheese pizza which he said was great and I had the rigatoni bolognese which was also very good. It was pretty crowded but we didn’t have to wait for a table. Service was good and atmosphere is very nice. Casual.
