The Copper Oven's specialty is wood fired pizza. Our menu rotates monthly and relies on home grown and locally sourced ingredients. We promise you good food in a laid back and friendly environment. The Copper Oven is located at Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery, in the center of the Cayuga Wine Trail West in the Finger Lakes region.
If you love flavorful foods with local ingredients this is your place! Creative, healthy menu with great wines and several of their own or local beers. If Dominos is what you like, don't go here...their crust is thin and charred...pizzas include a buffalo chicken, funghi, and a summer bounty (shredded yellow and green squash). You won't find red sauce on any pizza but you can get a lovely tomato salad! Enjoy the friendly staff!

My sister spotted the ad for the new Seneca Coffee House in the Seneca Shopper so while we were out hunting down garage sales I said, let's check out this café. I really couldn't believe Ovid has a real coffee house like the ones I'm used to in nyc. Well, I wasn't prepared for it but I'm happy to report that it's not just good, it's great starting with the coffee to the décor and the friendly owner and his family. And, the pastries as I could tell at a glance are homemade, fresh and fantastic. I had a cheddar cheese popover, the last one in the case with my perfect macchiato. The coffee beans are from one particular coffee farm in Costa Rica and they're also sold in the shop. Let me just add that not only is the café a work of artful restoration, the owners have renovated the entire c.1860 building of this historic village (part of the Military Tract laid out by Ithaca's founder Simeon DeWitt and populated by pioneers and soldiers from the Revolutionary War). It's a great spot for locals, tourists and the community.

The interior design of the Aurora Inn is absolutely mesmerizing. The wallpaper, sconces, tables, and moldings are beyond spectacular. The food was dynamite. The steak was so tender-/ you didn’t even need a knife. The lakte was awesome. The fish was a little dry but the squid ink risotto made up for it. The berry cobbler was beyond great, especially since it had homemade vanilla ice cream on top. But I must send a shout out to Pleasant T Rowland for breathing life back into this historic inn. She is a blessing to us all.

During the winter we are open by chance. Call ahead, or look for open flag or cars, & stop in! We can also try & make arrangements if you want to stop in to order a cake, etc, when not open. Please call first. We are a family owned and operated business specializing in premium ice cream made on our premises. Our homemade ice cream is created using the finest ingredients available to us. We strive to use all natural products whenever possible.
We had 2 different flavors and a sundae. Everything was absolutely generic, sub par, cheapest ice cream you can imagine. So disappointing. Thus was the spot we Always took our kids when doing wine tasting. We thought it was the best ice cream parlor in the state.
Not anymore. Never coming back.

Stopped for a leisurely lunch. The covered patio overlooks the vineyard. The service was pleasant and unhurried. Our mushroom soup was hot and full of flavor. My salmon dish and my wife's perch were perfectly prepared. Best meal we have had during our visit to the area. Would definitely recommend.

Heard the food was very good, but we didn't have a chance to try it. Walked in an was second in line, waited 25 minutes with no one saying anything to us. They took the group (8) ahead of us, then asked us for our name and promptly told us we weren't on the list and it would be another 30 plus minutes. We were concerned that as unorganized and uncommunicative as they were we would never be served! We turned around and left.

Casual food and atmosphere are the calling card of this charming restaurant and tavern, which is located directly across the street from the Aurora Inn. The chefs put their talents on display creating daily features that will impress everyone, from the most critical foodies to guests just looking for a great home-cooked meal. Take a turn playing pool or throwing horseshoes in the backyard pit.
While visiting our granddaughter who is a student at Wells College we had lunch at Fargo. The rueben sandwich was one of the better ones I have ever had. the rest of my family all had different choices and enjoyed them all. lunch ran about $15 a person, great decor and atmosphere.

We stopped for lunch during a wine tasting trip.
Barb had an excellent burger ("Hamburger" is German right?) that was made with freshly ground beef. I had the lunch special "Viennese bento box" ... a sampler platter which is a great idea because there are so many menu items you want to try.
We didn't have room for dessert so we got a selection of the pastries to go.
Service was friendly and Dano himself was working the room, greeting his guests.
