    This was the last evening of our family vacation. After a week in Myrtel Beach we decided to have one more dinner together as a family. The food was excellent! The service...so good that my son (25) asked if we could invite our server over for Christmas. She became part of the family. Early in the evening, the owner came out to meet our 9 month old granddaughter. He asked if she had her first meatball. She had not. He delivered it quickly along with the cutest tee shirt ever. "I ate my first meatball at Fenicci's of Hershey" We had a blast. The food, service and atmosphere made it the best night ever!

    Nice casual Italian. Our table was ready for us at our reservation time. Service greeted us promptly and took our drink orders. Menu was very large, seems like they are trying to hit a lot of demo's there. Waitress picked up on my daughter's birthday and recognized her during dessert. Food was good, would go back with a group.

    We planned with friends to go for dinner and none of us had been to the restaurant for more than 15 years. It was a great evening! A cozy, inviting, place. Lots of chatter , smiles, and delicious food. Our server was very friendly. Above it says notable wine list - I saw a list of mixed drink specialties but never saw a wine list. I asked for a malbec or shiraz and enjoyed a delicious glass of malbec. Two of us had the lasagna, and two had the pasta with choice of sauce , all was enjoyed. The rolls were delicious, a basket of 4 rolls was placed on our table, and if offered , we would have each had another I'm sure. We will definitely return to try some other things on the menu. Booking our reservation online was great!!!

    We should have known it was going to be a bad meal when the salads were served. Lifeless and full. The sauce on both the leather like veal and seafood fra diavola was tasteless and bland. No amount of salt, pepper and table side Kraft grated cheese could save it. Noodles were over cooked. Service was terrible. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Skip it and go to Devon's across the street where the food and service are both wonderful

    My wife and me, along with another couple, took our out oftown guest to your restauant. Steven, our waiter, was social-yet professional. The food was brought out in a timely and all was the correct temperature. Our guest commented positively on your sauces and your portion sizes. Afterwards, we all commented that we enjoy the total experience at Fenicci's. Please maintain the status quo as much as possible. I remember coming here in the 70's when I went to MHS. My wife raves about it at her position at MHS and I tell everyone (not everyone, I like to still get a seat) of our friends about your gem. Thank you for making our recent visit an enjoyable one.

    I've been going to this restaurant since 1971 and the food I'd always great. This time the salads my husband and I got were old. Lettuce was turning brown and some was absolutely wilted. Our entrees were wonderful as always. This is the first time in all of these years I have ever received poor quality food.

    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.

    Last time we were here was 4 years ago for my daughter's 4th birthday. We came back to Hershey to celebrate her 8th and she wanted to go back to Fenicci's! It used to be more casual with checkered cloth table clothes ect.... it's since been updated and it looks great! The owner came over and gave due credit to his wife for the decorating..thumbs up. Food was very good all around, and service was fantastic.

    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.

    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.
