The Nines is one of the best pizza spots in Ithaca! Huge slices for a very reasonable price, good selection at their bar, and lots of bands/music throughout the week. Their outdoor patio space is great during the spring/summer months.

Good pizza and it is a great place to have fun with friends. Service is good but it is sometimes a little bit slow.

The Nines is stunning institution in Ithaca for sure. We make it here about half the time we are in Ithaca each year. The pizza is great, the beer, the wings all hard to beat. Probably some of the best deep dish pizza in town. Can also get hot and sandwiches, burgers, fries, chicken...but to us, the beer and pizza... More

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
