Welcome to Gola!

Gola Osteria is tucked inside the Historic Quarry Arms Building toward the bottom of South Quarry Street. We are about four blocks from the Ithaca Commons, east on Rt. 79, towards Cornell.

Follow S. Quarry St. down a little hill and veer to the left. You will recognize our building by the large, stone fish fountain out front.

We will buzz you in to enter the building through the front by the fountain.

In warm weather, you are also welcome to enter through our side entrance by the terrace. Continue along the right side of the building, past the open air parking spots and you will see the covered deck.

Detours and construction

There are many detours around town this summer. Here are a few maps that outline the construction closest to Gola Osteria. We hope this will help make it easier to navigate Ithaca's busy streets this time of year!


Gola Osteria is located on South Quarry Street which is a cross street of Rt. 79.

Route 79 has many different names. Downtown, Rt. 79 is known as State Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Street (M.L.K. Jr St.). Further east, out of town, it is called Slaterville Road.
