  • "Been going to Hershey/Lancaster for over 30 years and always wanted to eat here. Finally got the opportunity last Saturday and it was well worth the wait! Appetizers of brushetta and seasoned shrimp yummy. Gluten free items available which were delicious and made me very happy! Portions huge! Desserts delectable! Waiter kind and always available. Staff very hands on. Really a great dining experience. We will definitely be going back!"

  • "We ordered from the "date night" menu. $50 for an appetizer, 2 salads, 2 entrees and a bottle of wine. There are a good amount of items to choose. We got the Italian Sausage and sweet peppers for or app. The sausage tasted like it was frozen at least once. A novel dish that would've been outstanding with fresh ingredients. My wife got the Veal patty and I got the Chicken Parm. The red meat sauce tasted burnt. Almost like the pan it was cooked in was way too hot when the garlic hit the oil. The ambiance was very nice. The dessert menu may have saved the evening. I would like to try it again hopefully with better results since they did come highly recommended by a friend of mine who was there 4 days earlier. But I don't know how soon."

  • "We enjoyed dinner before the hockey game. We were seated in the alcove area off the bar. Server Susie was excellent and very attentive. Angie and Sean even stopped by our table to check on us. The food was great. Fenicci's is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. You can never go wrong when dining there. Thank you for everything you do to make our visit great!"

  • "I have been wanting to come here and it is one of the few restaurants I have not been. The mozzarella sticks were to die for. The salad was basically all lettuce. Very boring. My meal was ok. Nothing special. The coffee was horrible and I was not impressed with the dessert selection. For a restaurant that got good ratings and reservations accepted I expected much better. I would not be against trying the pizza though. Maybe I will give it another chance. Oh and the booth was horribly uncomfortable and small. It sat so low that my elbows did not reach the table and it just made for an uncomfortable dinner."

  • "Good dining for the price. Confident in their accommodating my wife's coeliac need for gluten free."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "We eat here every time we are in Hershey which is at least once a year. The food is good and the service is excellent. If you are going to Hershey I would highly recommend this restaurant as their meals are home cooked and the portions are large."
    Dined on 10/10/2013
  • "The food was great. When we ordered, I orderd my appetizer and the server said okay and disappeared. My husband did not get to order his appetizer. We waited 11 minutes until we saw her again and I told her that my husband would like an appetizer also. The big thing that bothers me when eating out is when the server does not keep my iced tea filled. Our server was nowhere to be found."

  • "When staying overnight in the Harrisburg area, I always drive to Hershey and enjoy my dinner at Fenicci's. My reservation request to be seated in one of the semi private type booths in the bar with the romantic ambiance has never been a problem, although, I sometimes arrive early. Booking my reservation on line makes it quick very convenient. The wedding soup, although, different from typical recipe's, is simply delicious. My dinner salad was crisp, fresh and served on a chilled plate as it should have been. As a returning customer, I have enjoyed many entree's and had no complaints. However, I do believe they could improve on their garlic bread, which is not outstanding enough to order on my next visit. Should be a simple fix."

  • "Smoked salmon was good. Upside down pizza was flavorful as well. They have Guinness on tap for a reasonable price, the wine seemed overpriced. And for the finale, the tiramisu...it was the best we've had since eating it in Italy."

  • "Food was great and Kelly was an excellent server. Had not been to the restaurant for several years and forgot how good the food really was at Fenicci's"

  • "I would definitely go back. All 9 of us had different items and no one was disappointed. The service was great! Our server Susie was very helped with dinner suggestions and a bottle of wine. All the desserts looked delicious. Sadly I only had one. We all left happy!"

  • "We visited Fenicci's before an event in Hershey and we were quite suprised about this restaurant. First, there was a line outside which is always a good sign. Second, our server Mary was an absolute doll and finally our 4 meals were terrific. From the lasagna to the portabello parm to the NY strip and the pasta and meatball, all were outstanding entrees."

  • "This was a wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary. The waitress was very attentive and food was very good."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I would recommend adding gluten free spaghetti to your choices. Barilla makes an excellent gluten free. Also if you are going to offer gluten free items in your menu to draw customer with this allergy consider at least getting Tito's vodka.. It is very inexpensive and made from corn so you at least can offer mixed drinks or cocktails that are also gluten free. Also probably won't visit as often ... Was upset the pesto chicken dish is no longer on your menu."

  • "I have been craving a real risotto since I tried to make my own and failed miserably (I am too impatient!). I was looking for a place to go for my birthday and I looked at their menu and saw the risotto! We made a reservation just in case, but there was only one other table occupied at the time. The only criticism I have is the whole dining room was empty and they sat us right beside another table where the back of one of their chairs and one of our chairs were touching! Luckily the people left, but it was just surprising. Our waitress was great, very helpful and friendly and attentive. The food was AMAZING! I can't complain about any of it! The star was my beef and chicken risotto! I can't wait to go back!!!! Fantastic food and service"

  • "First time at Fenicci's and extremely pleased. Was very glad to have had reservations as it seemed everyone in Hershey was trying to get in. Hostesses and staff were all very professional, attentive, and friendly. We were seated a bit early, and the calamari appetizer was amazing. Entrees were plentiful, hot and delicious. Dinner salad was a bit on the wilted side, and House italian a bit too "vinegary" for my table's tastes,( they were out of parmesian-peppercorn) but everything else was amazing. I will definitely be returning, but with a reservation again---I wouldn't want to be turned away from this experience!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We both ordered fairly simple pasta dishes. The sauces were bland and unappetizing. The service was mediocre. Probably not the waiter's fault as he was obviously inexperienced and poorly trained. When in Hershey, try Piazza Sorrento instead for good , basic, southern Italian fare."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Had a wonderful time as usual at Feniccis. The place was vibrant and full of people. The service was a bit slow at first, but that's only because they were busy and it seemed like everyone came in at the same time. Once we got our order in and the wine flowing, our experience there was very good. Our food came out hot and tasted as good as ever. That was my second time there that week. Thank you Feniccis for a great evening. See us very soon."

  • "The dining area was very comfortable. Crabcake dinner was excellent, and eggplant parm with spaghetti was perfect. Our server was extremely attentive and pleasant. I would definitely return; prices were also reasonable."

  • "Service was incredibly slow. Took over an hour to get food. Waitress was slow, didn't know the menu, and looked like she was 20 years overdue for retirement. The excuse given was that the kitchen was backed up due to a large takeout order. The Manager and waitress then argued with us over getting our food boxed since we didn't want to be late for a show at the theatre."

  • "Food was great (as usual). Service was good (I think they were a bit short staffed that night....usually better). Love going there as they have a great selection of dishes from a light bite to heavy meal."

  • "Not a bad restaurant, close to theatre and the food was fair. Had to wait 1/2 hour even with a reservation. A bit noises. Not enough bar staff to keep up with the restaurants and bar."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "Although the local theatre was playing and it was an extremely busy night, service was excellent and every one made an extra effort to be sure we made curtain time. Our party had a variety of items across the menu from soup to pizza and everyone was pleased with their choice."
