Sammy's has by far the best pizza in Ithaca. The location on the common is very convenient and the prices are very affordable.

Affordable but don't waste your time and money. Good place for students to socialize but not such great food

Short version: great late night and/or drunk pizza Sammy's is consistently satisfying, late night, greasy pizza.

This past Wednesday night, Sammy's pizza allowed 2 extremely intoxicated women to enter their cooking area, play with their ingredients, and put it back into the pizzeria food supply. This situation 1.) showed that sammy's objectifies Women and allows them to serve as a detestable means to profit. 2.) does not respect food safety standards, and is willing to respect... More

Do not under any circumstances order delivery from here. It took over two hours to arrive (an hour longer than it was supposed to) and the food was horrible. I ordered a pizza (which never even arrived) a salad (not that fresh), mozzarella sticks (literally empty, no cheese), and a chix parm sandwich (marginal). On the plus side they issued... More

I tried to place an online order for lunch delivery (about 12:30 on Friday, 8/15) but for some reason the order wouldn't transmit, so I called the restaurant directly. I asked for the Chicken Picatta with a side of spaghetti & a bottle of Pepsi & was told it would be approximately 1 hour. At 2:00 I called to ask... More

Sammy's was ok. It wasn't phenomenal pizza, just average. The antipasto salad was average too. The crust was very good but the flavor of the pizza over all was average. They gave us three very small garlic knots.The wings were good. The staff was very nice. The shop has some booths outside and inside. It is extremely casual. This is... More

We needed pizza delivered to our hotel so we tried Sammy's. It came in the time frame they promised and it was hot and delicious. The prices were right.

The sign outside this restaurants says "The best pizza in Ithaca". Bold words, but after having a few slices there I would have to say that it could be true! It's certainly the best pizza I've had outside of NYC. The crust makes or breaks a pizza, and this crust is outstanding. A thin crust that has a satisfying crackle... More

I lived in Ithaca for a short time 6 years ago and this was my favorite pizza in Ithaca. I stopped back in when I was in town for a wedding last week and it is still great pizza. The place used to be run down a little bit and it has definatly been updated. The pizza has a good... More
