I debated about reviewing this restaurant because I live in NYC, with it's abundance of Italian restaurants, and have also traveled to Italy. So it seemed unfair to judge food from an upstate, Italian-American restaurant against what I am used to. The staff was so friendly and helpful, though, that I had to review Sorge's.
The place is certainly popular; we ate there on a Saturday night and the restaurant was almost full. The three of us each chose the pasta and salad buffet, which got us 5 different pastas and the salad bar. Items at the salad bar were many, varied, and fresh. The pasta portions were generous and came with sauce or meat sauce; they were pretty good but could have used more seasoning. Service was good.
The staff really came to our rescue at the end of dinner when our friend put on her hat and knocked off a tiny, expensive earring, one of a pair that her husband had given her as an anniversary present. We were searching all over the booth and floor when the hostess came over to see what was wrong. When she heard the problem, she got a flashlight and helped us look until the missing earring was found. It was a huge relief to find the errant earring.
So, overall, Sorge's is a cozy, family restaurant with decent food and a very helpful staff that will go above and beyond for their customers. It was a good find on a winter's night.
