This Salvadoran place is probably the only good Latinx food place in ith. the pupusas are AMAZING!

I've eaten pizza from Pizza Aroma a few times now. Every time I do, I think I'm eating cardboard. NY-style crust is great and I've got nothing against it but this pizza just lacks the depth of flavor that makes good pizza good.


Good small pizza place.

Found crockcroch's leg in pizza. The owner not took any responsible. I thrown up and never go back.

Great food! Always has the best selection of slices, convenient, friendly, and owned/staffed by very hardworking people who handle their business with respect for all in every circumstance.

I ordered a veggie pizza with no cheese (vegan). Unfortunately was immediately turned off by the amount of spinach when I opened the box.. it was like a thick blanket of wet wilted spinach and the tiniest amount of other toppings. Only a trace of red sauce. The crust was good but was baked on coarse cornmeal that crunched in my teeth. The people who run the place are nice but I would not come back here for pizza.

Pizza is terrific. Authentic crispy NY style crust. Also offer Latin foods. When I have praised the food to locals, their response has been "it looks dirty." It's not, but the dining area could use some updating.

Pizza Aroma has great gourmet pizza and El Salvadoran food. I especially love the pupusas

I get a weird reaction in my right side of my face while I was eating a pizza...I also gotta go to the ER(hospital) that food is unhealthy

We tried the #4 with two gourmet pizza slices and a drink. The chicken ranch was crispy New York style and delicious.

This is my go-to delivery place for pizza in Ithaca. The food is always great, the people who work here are really nice, and the food always arrives on time.

Visiting Ithaca - I returned to Pizza Aroma and expectations met yet again! I remember when the place opened 22 years ago- toppings always fresh and the same guy still behind the counter making and serving the pizza. Now gluten free- I knew I wasn't going to be served an authentic pizza dough but the toppings made up for it-- white garlic base, spinach, artichokes and feta - with a dash of avocado. Delicious! So many new speciality pizzas to try!

It was nice in here, amd the staff were super friendly. Totally recommend this as a stop when downtown.

Jessica Rojas

Good food but really bad customer service. There is a latina lady that shouldn't be taking orders because she is way to hateful

I had heard from a friend that this place had pupusas. The chicken one is my favorite and it's pretty flavorful without the sauce. It's $6 for two pupusas, but they're pretty big.

Two weeks ago ago today, I had the best vegan meal I ever had in NY state! In fact, I said this to my wife, before I even finished chewing my first bite of the calzone. Amazing! Last week, I had to go back to see if this was a fluke. Again, it was a full on culinary delight. I would like to make this a weekly habit.

Black bean avocado pizza is a must! All the others are good too

When I have a craving for Salvadorian food, l stop by. I wish there was a wider selection (I miss menudo!) and that the food was made to order, but you can't be picky in Ithaca. I usually get the pasteles, since it does pass the crunchy outside, soft inside test and I love the mix of corn and chicken. FYI, though, they only have the option of vegetarian or chicken. I like the salsa and spicy curtido that come as a side, but the curtido has good and bad days - some days it seems like the cabbage was wilted before it was pickled. Pizza is okay - my favorite non-fancy, regular slice is still in Trumansburg.

Wonderful variety, nice atmosphere, decent prices. I haven't had better pizza anywhere.

Luis Lopez

My favorite pizza place in Ithaca for last two decades.

Pizza Aroma is the place to go for fast, excellent take-out pizza. They offer a super variety of toppings and can even accommodate you if you are vegan or gluten-intolerant.

Leo O'Campo

Great pizza. Thin crust, NYC style, but they do the whole cornmeal crust thing, giving the crust both a bit more crunch and a bit more toothiness. Selection of toppings are top notch, with large selection by the spice and some unique options. Among the best pizza in Ithaca.

Gary Isaacs

A great variety of hearty pizza slices including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. Also have home-made El Salvadorian dishes.

Maurizio & his legendary pizza better never go away. Approaching 20 years that I've been coming here, I ALWAYS require a pizza session at Aroma when I'm back in town. I'm a little concerned because, when routinely expressing my undying loyalty & gratitude upon leaving this time, my parting words of "see you next year!" were returned with "I hope I'm still here"! Fingers crossed that was merely friendly banter... It's hard to go wrong at virtually ANY eating establishment in Ithaca (curious to hear current exceptions...)... thus considering perhaps it's a resulting fierce competition that causes so many (AMAZING!) establishments to mysteriously bow out even after having such great runs. I took the loss of Gino's & Benchwarmer's particularly hard, but every year it's just relentless. Just returned from another trip to learn that Madeline's is the latest casualty. I'm fairly confident (knock on wood) the only thing that will close Aroma's doors would be the very retirement of Maurizio himself, but stranger things have happened. So why wait to say a little prayer that one can indulge in Aroma's epic buffalo chicken, PLAIN (!!!), and endless specialty pizzas-du-jour for a VERY long time to come... one can dream! Thank you, Maurizio, from bottom-of-heart, for all that you do. It is appreciated more than you may ever know.

You have to try their Salvadorian menu!
