Tired of those "run of the mill" pizza chains on every street corner serving up those mass produced pies for five dollars? Come into Tivoli's Wood Brick Oven in Utica and meet our owner, Lorenzo Evola. He is a veteran of the pizza business and is serving up an alternative to the everyday by making pizza with old recipes and fresh ingredients.

We also offer New York round or Sicilian square pies and
calzone pocket pizzas. Other menu items found on our site include
appetizers like bruschetta varieties and bread sticks; sub
sandwiches; and salads. We also offer delicious handmade desserts.
Take a look around our website and come in to see us or give
us a call. We are always happy to hear from you.
