Absolutely the best pasta and service in the city of Auburn. The rest of the menu is excellent and the appetizers are enough for 3-4 people. Located on the river outlet from Owasco lake, there is outside, inside and bar seating.

Who expects to eat a pepper hot antipasto salad? Yes, it had jalapenos on it, which I pushed aside, thinking I was safe. However, after a few bites my mouth was on fire. Was this some sort of joke? Who does this to a salad?...More

Tradition isn't just something that's been around for a long time, it's something above the ordinary that will go on forever with a life of its own. That's a perfect description of Curley's. From the unforgettable red suspenders of founder "Curley" Dello Stritto to the unvarying quality of the diverse menu, Curley's is an Auburn tradition.

Curley's has a full range of domestic and imported beers and a tavern menu that includes juicy burgers, chicken wings, world famous pizza and traditional Italian dishes. Perhaps tonight you will want to relax in the comfortable and inviting dining room or enjoy outside dining on the covered deck overlooking the Owasco River.

Needless to say, our bar is always stocked!

Come in and see what we're all about. We look forward to seeing you!
