Description:

Barsoni's Pizza is named for Barb Gage and her son Carson, a 6-year-old who would like to someday be President of the United States. After 15 years away, including 5 in the Marine Corps, Barb decided to return to Cortland to live, work, and raise her son. She purchased Monteleone's, which had been in business for 20 years, and held a contest to choose the new name of the pizza joint. The winning name speaks of Barb's commitment as a single mother to Carson, and to her interest in community involvement. The Barsoni's motto - "We deliver where most don't" - indicates not only their wide delivery radius but also their commitment to excellent food and service.

The remodeled hardware store that has housed Barsoni's for the last year (May 2007) features a high ceiling and brick walls, which add a sense of history to the pizza joint. The Main Street location attracts more customers than the previous Groton Ave. shop did, and Barb is doing all that she can to keep 'em coming. Barsoni's is open late during the semester for college students, accepts all local competitors coupons, and offers "a little bit of everything" on their menu. When asked how she gets it all done, Barb pauses for a moment before saying "I don't know." She says that her staff and the families of Carson's friends are very helpful.

If you're in need of a good pizza, salad, or spaghetti, Barsoni's will provide delicious food - as far away as Greek Peak, Dryden, McGraw, and Homer!
