Some of the finest dining in Ithaca, and it is delicious Italian food. May be open Wed-Sat for dinner. Check first. And they do takeout! Just cross the footbridge at the intersection of Giles St and Columbia St, head right up the stone path, and look for the big fish statue. You might need to get buzzed in to enter the building.

Yum. Yum yum yum. Good price, great menu with all kinds of nori rolls, noodles, and other Korean, Chinese and Japanese favorites. They have long-term staff, and they do it right. Just off the Commons on Aurora and Seneca. Call to order and you can pick it up. They do not do delivery or online ordering. And sometimes they are closed on Wednesdays. 607-256-8818

One of the best Farmer's Markets in the US. Right on the lake. Not to be missed! Check for seasonal hours. It's open most of the year on Saturdays 9am-3pm and Sundays 10am-3pm. They started limiting groups to 2 people during Covid and you may have to wait in line to enter. You may also get lucky and find Macro Mama's peanut lime noodles, Cambodian food, Cuban food and other great prepared food and produce. Beautiful art, pottery, Ithaca's own Silk Oak clothes, etc as well.

Fun and funky place on Restaurant Row (Aurora St) with outdoor seating in nice weather, a delicious menu, drinks, and quick service. The whole front of the restaurant opens so there is plenty of air circulation when it's not too cold outside. If Viva Taqueria is full you can head a couple doors down to Luna.

Everyone loves taking a break in this wooded paradise along a creek. It is on Giles St just on the other side the bridge over 1st dam (aka Business Man's Lunch). You'll pass by Jim Sherpa's one-of-a-kind sculpture garden featuring a hovering platypus, giant bowling pins, and a monster in the making...

Paradise on Giles St. If you are walking with downtown behind you, the bridge over first dam will be in front of you. When you are about 20 feet from the bridge, take a left at the big gate. The path down is steep, so wear good hiking shoes. The bare sycamore tree roots and abandoned factory above the gushing waterfall will take your breath away.
