Just an overall pleasant lunch experience. The food was so good I ate too much. Everything was fresh and obviously made with great care. Great coffee, too. More

Once again, we celebrated New Year's Eve at Gola Osteria, which has become our holiday ritual. It remains an excellent choice. Our only quibble this time was the lack of a tasting or prix fixe menu (and wine flight) as we consider this a great way to get a sense of a chef's culinary abilities. I assume that the steakhouse theme may have seemed festive to Gola Osteria's staff, but for those of us who are not too beguiled by a chunk of beef, and notwithstanding the rest of the a la carte menu, it wasn't that exciting or tempting. We missed seating back and enjoying the luxury of enjoying a chef's ingenuity in pairing dishes and wines as we've experienced on previous occasions with their prix fixe menus and flights. Great night, but with a bit of a let down. Hopefully, we'll be able to indulge next holiday season. More

Good location, dining area reminiscent of the dinner club layouts in older movies based in NYC. Service was excellent, food was exceptional and the price a little high but not exorbitant. I will return and have already recorded to my friends and family. More

If it's the weekend, make sure you get reservations. Although bundling up on the back porch might be a good time for the right group. Because they are quite busy, they sometimes make mistakes. My wife ordered the same flat bread special that the guy at the next table ordered. Hers came a lot earlier (we may have ordered earlier), but was burnt. I found it tasty, but she didn't His came out a lot better. But, with young kids, we don't have the luxury of waiting for a replacement, so it's a bit of a bummer that the attention to detail is a bit lax at times. More

We had a lovely family crunch while visiting our daughter who is a student at Ithaca College. We wanted to go some place that was nicer than where she usually goes with friends and this was the place! Everything was special. We asked for a quiet table and they called in advance to warn us that there was a large group. The setting is charming. The food was delicious with great choices. I got waffles-not a usual pick for me- because I was tempted by the apricot compote. Others got delicious omelettes - to quote: the best I’ve ever had. They surprised us with danish. The breads from Ithaca bakery were also great as was the coffee with amaretto. We’ll be back. More
