    We always like to go to Fennicci's on our annual Hershey trip..the pizza is pretty good and food better than average. However, they seemed to have made some really nice changes to decor and menu. The food was delicious and service was very attentive. The menu has a wide variety of options. I had the penne vodka with chicken, sausage and shrimp which was outstanding! The portion sizes are very large and since we were staying in a hotel I couldn't take it home...we did sit outside on the very nice patio which was very relaxing!

    The restaurant was in a good location in Hershey, close to the park and the nearby hotels. The menu had primarily traditional Italian entries, including a number of seafood offerings. We were a party of 6, including 2 children, and we had made reservations in advance. The table was very comfortable, and the service was excellent. The waitress went out of her way to accommodate some special requests. Overall, a very nice experience.

    It was very busy, but we were seated within 10 minutes of reservation. We were however seated next to bar which was very noisy and we couldn't have a good conversation. The food was great though. Our next visit will be seating away from bar, but over all it was very good.

    Extensive menu offers so many choices it was hard to decide. Dishes were less fancy than menu might suggest, but that was good for a family with small children. More homestyle cooking. Looks a bit more upscale when you walk in, but definitely appropriate for children.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/18/2014
    We eat dinner here during our recent trip to Hershey. My party consisted of 8 adults, a 2 year-old, and a 4 month-old. The food was delicious. Every person at our table got something different and everybody was completely happy with their choice. My two-year-old enjoyed the salmon sandwich with vegetables. We got wings as an appetizer or and they were also delicious. My four-month-old was being a little cranky at the time so I brought him outside to calm him down. The manager came and asked if I wanted my food to be reheated so that it was warm when I ate it. The staff overall was very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely go back here during our next trip to Hershey.

    Every year my daughter and her husband and two boys come to visit and Finicci's is always on the agenda....My son-in-law doesn't even want to try another restaurant and my daughter says its the best meal all year (that's saying something because she is an excellent cook). My sister, her family and my niece and her family also attended. We had a party of 11, booked on line and had an awesome setting for our family get together. We had an age range from 65 down to recently turned 1. Excellent food, excellent service.

    This was my first time at this establishment and it was just ok. I expected maybe a more romantic atmosphere because it was my 1 year wedding anniversary. I maybe had my expectations set too high? It is perfectly fine though, the food was good and so was the service. Our server almost dropped the take home box on my wife while trying to put the pizza in it so that was not good! Overall, the experience went well and I will return, maybe not for an anniversary though. Birthdays, and a first time home celebration, I will be in there! ;-)

    I adore Italian food! I am not exactly sure how we stumbled upon fenicci"s, but goodness, I'm glad we did. I had the lasagna and it was very good. My husband had a seafood trio dinner and he was very pleased. The portions were very generous and we felt the prices were reasonable for the amount and quality of the food we received. We will definitely be going back!

    The standard Italian dishes are quite good and amply abundant, but for the kitchen's best try the specials of the day and go beyond the classic pastas and parmagianas. Good service and reasonable prices. Main dining area is dark, crowded and worn; try the patio for lighter ambiance.

She is attentive and makes our visit extremely enjoyable. The food is delicious. We had the pleasure of being seated in the history room with our guests. We look forward to each visit. Keep up the good work.

    There is nothing better than eating Fenicci's outrageously good food sitting outside on the patio overlooking their veggie garden, hearing the distant screams of HersheyPark roller coaster riders. Unless of course, there's live entertainment on the patio - which there was! Great place and great people.

    After a long day at work, followed by a community meeting, we were just hungry. But with Open Table reservations we were seated right away and our server was taking our order within 3 minutes! The food is always delicious, and the service was great. I ordered the lasagna, which comes with a certificate if eaten all in one sitting. I planned to take half home with me, but with a nice glass of wine, good conversation and a relaxed pace, I ended up eating the whole thing!

    We ate at Fenicci's of Hershey on 7/26/2014 and really enjoyed it. We all had the crab cakes and I'd recommend them. Our server was new, and it showed, but we realize restaurants in tourist towns are going to sometimes have newer employees. We were staying at the Day's Inn in Hershey and got a 10% discount for showing our room key. The owner (or manager) came by the table to make sure everything was great - nice touch. The desserts were terrific! I'd suggest Fenicci's to you and I plan to return someday.
