Coltivare is a farm-to-table teaching facility dedicated to serving the community, sourcing by local farms and training our students.  Despite the very best efforts of our team, due to extraordinary staffing issues we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the restaurant effective today, Friday, May 26th, until the beginning of July to allow time to retool so that we can meet our own high standards of service and quality the community has grown to expect. As a teaching facility we are willing to learn from our shortcomings and take corrective actions in a timely manner. This suspension has no impact on our ability to fulfill existing and new events.  We are truly saddened this year to not be a memorable part of your graduation memories. We look forward to a grand reopening and to serving you in the future.


Coltivare is the culinary center for Tompkins Cortland Community College, and is located in downtown Ithaca. Coltivare features college classes, community classes, a full bar, restaurant and event space! Thank you for visiting our site,  we hope to see you soon!
