A mixture of thoughts. The ham and asparagus soup was excellent, but the salads had way too much dressing. The service was friendly , and effective. However the meals were average. The house special ravioli lacked real character or flavor. The chicken parm sandwich was a very good choice, but the stuffed chicken breast not so much. Did not stay... More

We were to visit the Corning Glass Museum, arrived around noon and decided to look for a place to eat on West Market street. Online, we found several places that SAID they were open but NO, they were closed so we took a chance with this place. YAY! Great service and really good home-cooked style meals. I shared the lasagna... More

Sorges has a buffet on Wednesdays and Fridays for $16 a person that includes a well stocked salad bar with lots of items to choose from. Also offers three types of sauce and four types of pasta. Excellent service and food was very good.

We were told breakfast would be hometown cooking. That information was correct but it's at top of the line prices. Over $40 for breakfast for two. That included tip but still hometown breakfast where we come from is two three egg omelettes stuffed with various different toppings, home fries and toast for maybe $15 for two. If we ever come...

When visiting the Corning Museum of Glass, this is the place to dine. It's right on the main street with easy parking. Our waitress, Margalynn, was cheerful, engaging, and helpful. We enjoyed authentic, homemade Italian lunches in generous proportions. Even the minestrone, which comes with any plate, was real and delicious. We loved the photos on the walls of the... More

This is a great date night place. We were traveling and starving looking for large servings. I wish their sandwiches came with fries. The hamburger came with a small amount of chips. The lasagna just came as a piece of lasagna, looked kinda naked and plain. But everything was delicious. Great for a date night. Also, our waitress was wonderful.

Thanks for finding us on Market Street! Thanks too for enjoying your dinners! As for your items ordered, we have options such as meatballs, meatsauce, sausage and other toppings for your lasagna. I agree, the lasagna does look a bit lonely, and fries for the burger are available to order as well. Thanks for coming in and do stop back... More

Went for dinner after walking around the gaffer district. We thought it was a very good neighborhood Italian restaurant. The service was generally good and the prices seemed fair.

Thanks L B for your review! Happy to see that the French touring visitors didn't slow down your dinners. When we do get a bus, they have reserved space and their dinners are always pre-ordered so as to not affect our customers as they dine with us. Hope to see you again soon when you are back in Corning for... More
