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.

Nothing fancy or experimental. Just good basic Italian food. Pasta is fresh, pizza is thin American style, and the dining room is a classic. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. And in good New York style, the portions are huge. We got three meals out of one hot Italian sub, and two meals from my gnocchi order.

The pizza and wings are absolutely delicious. I recommend the dozen wings tossed in garlic and oil ($7.75). The coffee tastes pretty good, too. Service was very good and friendly.
