The pastas and desserts are all made on site. The Michelangelo raviolis are terrific. The lemon Maraspone cake and the chocolate cake are fabulous. The decor is updated and clean. They are taking covid seriously. Great place to stop. The staff was also great.

We had a superb lunch outdoors at Sorge's. The food and drinks were excellent and moderately priced. Our waitress (Kiersten) was friendly and attentive. Outside is a nice place to people watch, too. Can definitely recommend!More

THE best local restaurant! Fantastic food and clean, CLean, CLEAN!!! The Sorge family certainly pays attention to detail in both their menu offerings as well as cleanliness of the entire restaurant. That includes ALL food prep areas. We have been going to Sorge’s Restaurant since...before we had our wedding dinner there back in 1986! I highly recommend Sorge’s. We are very lucky to have this restaurant close to home right here in Corning, NYMore

After spending the day at CMoG, we had dinner at Sorge's with friends. Our server was helpful and friendly; and our dinners were delicious. A very nice Italian restaurant with the Old World Italian atmosphere. Even though it was the day after Thanksgiving and we...didn't have reservations, the 4 of us were able to be seated - we arrived at an early dinner hour. We especially appreciated the extensive list of wines from the Finger Lakes. That's one thing I look for when dining in the Finger Lakes area ... KUDOS to you!! Would certainly dine here again if in the area.More

Stopped in for dinner after visiting the glass museum. The food was absolutely delicious, the atmosphere was comfortable and relaxed, and the servers were friendly and attentive. If our home wasn't an hour and a half away, this would be our new weekend dinner go-to.

My wife and I have been visiting Corning and the Finger Lakes region for years and enjoy having breakfast in local establishments vs our hotel. This was our first time having enjoyed breakfast at Sorge's, and it was delicious. Our server was Hollie, a very...personable and attentive young lady. They have a breakfast buffet that looked wonderful, but we chose to order from breakfast menu. My wife enjoyed a Sausage, Egg and Cheese on English Muffin sandwich, while I opted for my favorite, 2 eggs with bacon and potatoes and an English muffin. Both, very enjoyable and to top it all off, we enjoyed two Mimosa's while having breakfast, featuring local made NY State champagne, loved it. If your staying in the Corning area, and looking for a great breakfast, look no further than Sorge's.More

This Italian restaurant was one of the highlights of our 6 week holiday. The staff were friendly and very attentive. The ambiance was homey and true to it's Italian history. The food was outstanding and the portions were generous. After a wonderful meal we decided...to splurge for a dessert and coffee. The chocolate cake was delicious and the portion was so large that I had to take half home. Mmmmmm.More
