Worst place to dine in Ithaca... – This restaurant was actually recommended by a friend of mine and at this point I have no idea why. The service was awful and the food was merely ok. The service was by far the worst I have ever experienced at any restaurant. The waiter was very rude and was overall just a very poor server. The chairs were also plastic and very uncomfortable. I would not waste my time at this restaurant if I were you.
The prices were fine, the food was less than ok, and the service was awful; if you want to ruin your evening then this is the place for you.
Great Martinis – I agree, this place is hard to see but once you're past the doors and curtain it's great! Great drinks, great food. Why are they hiding this place w/ those curtains?
The food was fresh, prompt but not too prompt service. Great drinks and our waitress made us feel like we were at home. Great experience! THE only place to go in Ithaca.
what a happy surprise! – when i drove by this restaurant, i really was under the impression that it was a pizza joint, boy was i wrong and happily so!
the inside doesn't match the outside! beautiful fabric lined ceiling, artsy, contemporary paintings on the walls, an open view kitchen on one end.........has great ambience and mood!
the food was outstanding........from the homemade pastas, beautifully prepared salads, inspired appetizers, all were excellent! the pizza appetizer special was awesome. crisp crust topped with a light smear of tomato sauce, cheese, capers and anchovies. i don't have enough space here to tell you all about all the foods we tried.......take my word for it, i couldn't find anything to even try to get picky about!
the long list of new and retro cocktails had us all enjoying the well prepared drinks for several rounds.
the waiter, attentive, aware and unintrusive was perfect! right on top of everything without making himself part of our dinner group.........couldn't ask for better service! well trained and very professional!!!
ONE OF THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN ITHACA, DON'T PASS THIS PLACE UP!!
