Maybe Ithaca is so starved for food the little that this place gives suffices, I'm sorry but once was enough for me, and we LOVE PIZZA!
Wood burning ovens are the rage these days but guess what, you need to have something good going in to get something of value coming out. The pizza here was crisp but lacking flavor. The crust, the dough was lackluster. Nothing to go back for or to rave about.
The Caesar salad didn't even have real shaved cheese. You're kidding right? TGIF and Chili's does a better caesar salad. The Calamari, frozen, no tentacles, it just keeps getting worse.
I live here and I am completely disappointed, mucho money spent on the building, the signage, the bar, the decor, the ovens, and nothing put into the food. Pretense without substance.
I can name many other places (around Ithaca) that do better pizza without a wood burning oven and without the high prices.
