Rude Manager, and poor service – We ordered pizza for delivery. The pizza showed up on time, but was burnt, and half the cheese had spilled off to the side. I was treated rudely over the phone when I asked to get a replacement pizza and a discount for my extra wait. When the replacement pizza arrived an hour later, again the cheese had completely slid to the side. Figured there was no use putting up with the manager's abuse again, and ordered a pizza from a different restaurant. Good luck if you choose this restaurant.
The BEST pizza in town – By far the BEST pizza in Ithaca! Being a college town we have a TON of pizza joints. None can hold a candle to the Nines though. As earlier reviewers said, when the music is on it is too loud for "dining" (unless it's summer and you can eat on the patio). That being said, this is also a great place to check out the local music scene.
One of the neat things about the Nines is their kitchen is upstairs and your pizzas come down to you by dumbwaiter.
Pool and darts are also on scene.
Go for the deep dish --- avoid all else – Even if you're not a deep dish fan, go for it here. It's not only some of the best deep dish you'll find, it's also the only good thing on the menu. Except for the corn fritters -- they're pretty damn tasty, even if they are courtesy of Sysco.
best damn pizza in Ithaca – If you like deep dish pizza, this is the place for you. This place has the best in the area. The garlic cheese bread is pretty good too. Can get rather crouded when college is in session, and I'd avoid it on nights they have live music as they blare the sound system so loud you can't hear the person seated next to you even when they yell. However, they DO deliver. :)
Real homecoming... – My best friend from college and I NEVER missed pizza at the Nines every time we went back. I'm craving it as I write this... and I live in New York so go figure.
Best Pizza in USA – The deep dish pizza is simply the best I have ever had. The Nines is my first stop when I'm back on campus. Good beer selection. Friendly staff. The only drawback is that the live music isn't always so good.
Collegetown Classic – The building is an old firehouse with lots of character. The deep dish square pizza is a meal itself. It comes in four thick slices. Buffalo wings and beer-battered mushrooms go down really well with a beer. The inside looks the about the same as it did 25 years ago. It's a collegetown institution. The service is slow, but hey, what do you expect?
