“Nothing Corny About This Pizza Place in Corning, NY”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

While overnight in Corning, New York I visited and had dinner at the Atlas Brick Oven Pizza restaurant. It was kind of a step back in time place without all the bells and whistles you find in the more current pizza places. A small storefront similar to what I saw in the North End in Boston. There were only four tables at the front and a food bar with stools where you can watch the cooks make your pizza before placing it into the brick ovens at the far end of the bar.

It was a Tuesday evening and yet, there were four cooks and two very pleasant waitresses, all of which were very personable and efficient. I had the cheesesticks (yummy!) and ordered a small multi-cheese and sausage pizza. Being from the Chicago area, I am very finnicky about pizza but I will say it was tasty. As usual, in New York they cut in wedges where back home almost all pizza are cut in squares. Upstairs was a full bar and very nice atmosphere.

All-in-all it was a good choice for dinner. Try it if you ever get to Corning.

“The Perfect Place to Eat in Corning”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

After touring the Corning glass museum we were starving and so we drove into town and this was our first stop. We LOVED it. Warm, cozy, smelled great, friendly service. We started with the jalapenos and bacon breadsticks and loved them. We all all ordered different small pizzas and shared them. Although my favorite was the Buffalo wing and bleu cheese pizza all of them were great. It also had a full bar and we got to watch them toss their freshly made to order pizzas. A nice stop for families.

“Best Pizzeria's in Corning,NY”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

While visiting family on a recent trip to Corning,NY we stopped in ATLAS for lunch. We ordered a Prosciutto Basil pizza and was asked if we wanted white or wheat crust. We loved that they offer those options since most pizzeria's do not. We watched while the pizza maker toss our pizza and put on fresh ingredients. The pizza was not greasy like most pizza. Our pizza was absolutely the best pizza we have ever had!!!! DELICIOUS!!!! We also had Baked Bruschetta and Thad's cheesecake both were incredible!!! The restaurant has plenty of room for small or large gatherings. They have additional seating and full bar upstairs with televisions to watch your favorite game.The waitresses are fast and efficient with a smile. In the historic district of Corning it close to shopping and major highways a perfect location. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

“Best place to eat in Corning!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

I don't know why this isn't ranked #1. I stayed in Corning for 2 weeks and this was by far the best eatery in the entire city. We went as a group of 10 and everyone ordered something different. Our waitress, remembered everything, even the crazy requests some of our diners asked for. ..she wrote nothing down. I had the Buffalo Chicken Pizza and it was one of the best I have ever had. It puts the large gourmet pizza chain to shame. Anyway, the atmosphere isn't much, but who cares when the pizza and service is this good!!
