We met friends here for dinner. The outdoor patio is one of the nicest in downtown Ithaca. It's enclosed, not on the street and has some nice shade trees. The menu is fairly extensive with the majority of items being "small plates" with the idea...More

I took my family and friends to the restaurant. After waiting over one hour for a table we were seated and waiter/service was the worse we ever experienced, In fact the waiter never spoke a word to us until the end of the meal
