The pizza is good. The crust is the best part. And the service is friendly and efficient. Prices are low to average. It's just that nothing sets the place apart. It is up-state-ny pizza, not the delicious crisp think crust of New York City. Alas

The food is AMAZING, however the service was terrible. I had to get someone's attention, then waited 45 for a cold sub at a "not-so-busy" time, then when I said something they mumbled under their breath and walked away. What a shame, the sub was delicious.

This sandwich is delish. Just wish one could have a small salad in place of the fries Love the salad dressing (Italian) and your meat balls.

Stopped here for first time visiting family, accommodated our large group. The portions of each entree was very generous as each ordered a different dish. The salads were fresh and the house dressing was good. The bread served was really good. The pasta dishes were huge! The kids meals were generous as well. No one had pizza but it did... More

This is a place I go at least once a month. Their hours are very open and you can go there for either lunch or dinner. The food is delicious and servings are plentiful. The toasted garlic rolls that come with the pasta meals are a treat. Service is always good.

Pizza is above average, wings are very good. Most of the menu, if not all, can be take out...the service can be mixed, but never really bad. They tend to use students for staff, so there is a fair amount of change. Subs are good. Never a bad choice. No alcohol served.

I have never had a meal at the restaurant, but frequently order pizza and wings to go. They have a wide selection of pizza options using fresh ingredients & delicious tomato sauce - love their pizza and love their wings even more. They are very busy when Cortland Students are in town & so a take order can take considerably... More

previous reviews suggest our recommendation of this place, but no more... fool us twice... antipasto, takeout, didn't have enough cheese for a small sandwich and the lettuce was predominately brown... OK, mistakes happen, so we mentioned this when we called again and while apology was abject, antipasto was even worse, a disgrace, particularly for the price paid... sorry, but never... More
