This is BY FAR our favorite stop in Ithaca. I have been going since I was in Jr High School and now we go with our kids when we are in Ithaca. Best deep dish slices and chicken wings ever!

Over the years have stopped in for a quick slice or a pie, and it has been reliably good and hot every time!

15 year resident of the Ithaca-area... The pizza at the Nine's is regarded by many to be the best in town (I think you'd get a good amount of support for Italian Carry Out as well). If you enjoy thick crust, their four piece deep dish, enough to happily feed two good eaters, is the way to go. Not deep... More

We were in Ithaca touring the colleges. Cornell is my wife's alma mater and with those great memories she treated us to a visit to "the" Nines. Order the deep dish pizza and enjoy your friends and family.

Stopped in for dinner as part of a trip to cornell university. It's been a long time. The pizza is still as good as ever. The place has not lost its charm.

We made a reservation the night before for 47 people, 20 girls under 15, our hockey team and parents. They seated us all together, served water and had our pizzas ready and served within 20 minutes. We had preordered a variety for the adults and cheese & pepperonie for the girls. Just like a production line. Perfect service. We went... More

I recently went to the Nines with my family for a reunion. Although we were a larger party, we were thankful that they sat us within 5 minutes. Unfortunately, that was the only time we received quick service. We ordered immediately once we were seated. However, it took an hour for us to get just our appetizers. Not only that,... More

Matt is by far one of the best servers that I have ever encountered......friendly, personable, and always had a smile on his face. He really seemed to love his job. Our table got 3 pizzas but I can't review the pizza as I didn't eat......only had beer. The Nine's is very lucky to have Matt representing their restaurant/bar. I wish... More
