Diner Reviews
  • "Great food, service, and atmosphere. Great choice for casual date night!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "After reading favorable reviews of this restaurant on TripAdvisor, some friends and I decided to give it a try. This was our first visit. To be fair, the place has potential - it is located in downtown Hershey, the servers were very friendly and gave us a lot of attention, and it has a nice atmosphere, not too dressy, not too casual. But the food was a big disappointment. All of us ordered a different dish from the menu and nothing stood out. The pizza really could have used more seasoning in the sauce and topping. The meat sauce in a pasta dish tasted watered-down and with no hint of any meat inside. The lasagna was huge, but covered in a ton of tomato sauce so that all you tasted was tomato sauce. We will not be coming back."

  • "I travel to Hershey every three months for work and we always come to Fenicci's. The food is consistently excellent and there are good wines to pair it with. The service is always excellent. Plus, they have many delicious gluten-free options, including their pizza, and those options are as delicious as the regular pizza and pasta dishes. Definitely worth the trip!"

  • "Food was awful...service was terrible. Extremely long wait between courses as the waitress was too busy eating her own dinner to serve us. Not good for families or anyone with tastebuds."

  • "We had a party of nine and while I found the food to be very good, our service was not that good especially considering that the restaurant was not crowded at all. Our family are not big drinkers so there are fewer oportunities to check on the need for additional bar drinks, but even nondrinkers would appreciate their ice tea being refilled. There are a number of good restaurants in the Hershey area so when you feel that you were ignored for long stretches its likely that you will look to other places for a more positive experience. Its a shame because the food is actually very good. I will try again some time in the future, but I was not impressed enough to make it a regular dining destination."

  • "We arrived before the dinner rush, a bit quiet, but turned lively within the hour. Great atmosphere, & service, kid friendly, convenient location. I ordered the mixed grill (shrimp, crab cake & fillet of salmon), w/ a side of basil pesto linguine. Portion was huge. I literally had two bites of the salmon & boxed the rest to take home along w/ about 2/3 of the pasta. One thing I have to say, the shrimp were precooked & had some lemon pepper seasoning sprinkled on them, not grilled. The crab cake was delish! Barely any filler... lots of crab, but not grilled. Most likely pan sauteed. The salmon was grilled, a bit underseasoned. If one is ordering a "mixed grilled" platter, all of the elements should be grilled, w/ a nice smokey flavor."

  • "We always enjoy the food at Fenicci's, This time it was very good and we had a great waitress. Great place for dinner if you are going to a show at Hershey Theatre, they will get you out in plenty of time if you tell them, and it is within walking distance of Theatre."

  • "Good restaurant. Pasta was great, rolls were fresh. Salad average. Dessert--well, I wish I didn't pay $6ish dollars for soggy creme brûlée. Go for pizza or dinner."

  • "We had a nice meal and thought the service was very good. Waitress was Susan and she was very attentive to our needs! If you're in Hershey Fenicci's is a must."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Lots of yummy items to choose from. Everyone liked what they ordered and the seafood pesto risottos was fabulous. Hostess, bus boy and general staff were excellent. We made reservations online and they were very friendly and accommodating once we arrived. They found us a wheelchair accessible table that was a easy to maneuver to and help us find the best way into the restuarant. We would try this place again because there were so many good choices on the menu."

  • "The hostesses and wait staff were very friendly and accommodating, especially when it came to assisting my wife (who has mobility challenges) into the restaurant. We decided to get the Twice baked skins, calamari and crab cake. Our server, Meghan was friendly, and very attentive. The skins were perhaps the best I have ever tasted. The potatoes had a tender but solid texture. The Alfredo was tasty but not too buttery or salty like so much Alredo out there is. The calamari was fried with a light crunchy coating and very tender. The crab cake had a nice amount of meat. The portions were generous. We recommend Fenicci’s with enthusiasm and will certainly return."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We visited Fenicci's with friends on Saturday evening. Our server Meghan was superb. Her attention to our needs went beyond our expectations. The ribs were fantastic. Every need was met. This is one of our favorite restaurants if not our favorite dinner place in the area. Our friends enjoy the special attention they receive when they dine with us."

  • "Everything at this restaurant was good to very good, but nothing really stood out. Nothing to complain about; nothing to rave about. The food was good, but everything that I had, I've had better somewhere else. Service was friendly and attentive. Overall the experience was very good."

  • "Phil has established a remarkable, friendly, welcoming restaurant with top notch wait staff and food. Jake tried to accommodate all special requests (my son asked for half of 2 entrees) but in the end wasn't able to do so. He didn't mind our gaggle of Tweens making noise, and lots of requests for extra dressing/ more sprite/ etc."

  • "We had a reservation for 730 pm and arrived around 720pm. Was told our table was getting cleaned off and we should wait in the bar. We went to bar and service was good there. We waited and waited finally at 750pm I went to hostess and asked if our table was ready, she said that she gave our table away....i asked why and she said she went to the bar and couldn't find us....there were a total of 5 people at the bar, including my husband and I. She was apologetic and promised to seat us at he next available table...which was only a few minutes wait. I love their food however their lack of space for people to wait and their unorganized hostess situation makes it very difficult to go and have a relaxing dinner."

  • "I loved everything about this restaurant! The quiet and relaxed atmosphere, the efficient and friendly waitstaff and the amazing food. My boyfriend ordered the steak and said it was one of the best steaks he ever had. I had the Land and Sea Combo which is a Crab Cake and Chicken Breast. I got the Alfredo sauce on the side and had planned to use it to add a little flavor to the chicken breast because I've never had one that wasn't dry anywhere else. I certainly didn't need to use it, the flavor and tenderness of the chicken stood on it's own! (Although, I did try it and it was fantastic too!) We also took our daughter and everyone was great with her as well. Wonderful dining experience! We'll definitely be back!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "while the food at the restaurant was fine the service was terrible. from the time we ordered to the time we actually got our food was almost 80 minutes - this with five kids who were all extremely hungry. tables seated after us got served before we did - and no good explanation was ever given. would not recommend as the food, while good, is not worth what could be a wait like the one we had."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • " The experience started out great with us being seated promptly and our special request to be seated near the entertainment was also honored. Server was prompt and friendly, but we did feel a bit rushed. When we ordered desert, he asked if he could bring us the check. I hurried up and paid as soon as I got the check and did not look over the bill. I got home to find out that I was charged for the appetizer, which I had presented the server a free appetizer coupon. As for the food... quality was simply not what we expected for the price. What was great is the staff was extremely friendly and the entertainment/ambiance was great. Because of that, we might give Fenicci's another chance."

  • "When I travel, I always eat at local establishments and in good weather prefer outside seating. This place did not disappoint. I was traveling for business, found the restaurant on Open Table and even the local people at the client I was working highly recommended it. We sat outside on the lovely patio on a high table. Even though the patio borders the street, it was still a great spot to sit and eat/drink. I would definitely go back. Food was very good, extensive menu. Service was good, but I think our server was serving the entire outside and needed some help."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Our appetizers of brushetta and calamari were tiny and mediocre. Not bad but I could of made them at home, so not something worth paying restaurant price for. My father and I got wings which were extremely pitiful. They were tiny and dried up. We also got the "famous" upside down pizza, which was barely flavorful. Also the restaurant was practically empty for lunch, yet we only saw our server when food was being brought out and to be given our bill. Although my previous visit was amazing and quite the contrary, so not sure what happened to effect service so much."

  • "If there is one thing that is guaranteed at Fenicci's, it's getting a great meal. We have never had a bad meal there. Phil, the owner, if ever-present, checking on his customers, making sure everything is just right. He truly is invested."

  • "It had been a long time since I had last dined here. My mother, daughter and I dined here for my birthday. The food and service were both outstanding! The rear dining room is very nice and offers a great view of downtown. We enjoyed the Smooth Jazz music that was playing in the background! I was also impressed with how many dishes were available gluten-free as my mother is celiac. They give you a special certificate with your name on it if you finish their lasagna! Can't wait to dine here again soon!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "I went to Fenicci's with a group of 10, and the service was great. Also, their gluten free menu was huge, and the food was delicious! I can't wait to go back there the next time I'm in Hershey!"

  • "Fenicci's was amazing! My family was in Hershey for the weekend to celebrate my son's 7th birthday and we decided to make a reservation at Fenicci's through opentable. We were totally impressed with our dinner and the service. It is a great Italian restaurant and we are picky when it comes to Italian. My husband is 100% Sicilian and we are both originall from NJ where Italian food is phenominal. This restaurant was a hit with all of us and we definitely suggest it. "

  • "We visit Hershey once or twice a year, and are on the lookout for good dinner places for our family (kids 12 and younger). As such, we're looking for family friendly (bar scene OK), not overly fancy dining. Fenicci's was OK. The food was safe on many levels, but not inspiring. Reminiscent of bottled sauces. The staff was friendly. "

  • "It's a busy place and I get that, but the staff were literally running around the whole meal which made the mediocre food even more forgettable. I honestly can't even recall what I had just two nights later. I felt very uncomfortable the whole meal as the hurried servers made you feel on edge and wanting to free the table asap to seat the next group rather than actually enjoy yourself. The one thing I do recall was the fried calamari and only because it was the size of wristbands and chewy. Very noisy, which I can normally deal with, as long as the service and/or food are very good. Unfortunately, neither was true here. "

  • "Here for dinner. Seated right away. Server quickly to table for drink order. The service was very good, but much too quick. We felt rushed. Salads brought within minutes followed by appetizer within minutes, entres a few minutes later. Not good if you want to relax & enjoy the company of those you are dining with. Food: Wedding soup was good. Meat & cheese plate was a few LG cubes of 2 dif white cheeses, 4 small pieces of prosciutto, a few olives & a bowl of olive oil. 2 of us had lasagna which was good & lg in portion. Another had seafood pesto risotto which had good flavor but shrimp & scallops were severely over cooked. Scallops were like erasers & was unable to fork cut shrimp. Given discount on risotto. Tiramisu was good. "
