Our Story

Located just a block from The Commons, Coltivare is the downtown Ithaca culinary center, event venue, and farm-to-table restaurant of Tompkins Cortland Community College. Our professionally staffed restaurant supports four related degree programs as well as sourcing much of its produce from the college’s TC3 Farm in Dryden. Serving seasonal New American fare locally sourced and inventively prepared, we let the flavors of the Finger Lakes shine through. We also feature a full selection of craft cocktails, regional wines, and New York State beer.

Coltivare means “to cultivate” in Italian. We cultivate learning and the land and transform the harvest into local, farm fresh dining. With bar service starting at 4 p.m. daily Tuesday-Sunday, we offer happy hour drink specials and a small Bar Bites menu 4-6 p.m. all week, firing up the restaurant kitchen at 5 for Dinner and Dessert. On Sundays we offer a killer brunch 10 a.m.-3 p.m., and as always, you’ll find our modern, rustic, and inviting atmosphere serves as the perfect backdrop for our farm-to-table mission. Just a block from The Commons, we’re conveniently located at 235 S. Cayuga Street in downtown Ithaca.
