  • "We were recommended by a co worker who knows the owner. We couldn't be happier. The food was excellent as well as the service and atmosphere. We are now going to be going once a week. We met the owner and shook hands very nice guy."

  • "I have been going to Fenicci's for years. The owner has recently renovated the main dining area and plans to improve the bar area in January. The food is always delicious and the staff are wonderful. Definitely a local favorite."

  • "We had a great time at Fenicci's and were delighted to be able to seat our family together during a reunion weekend. The food was very good and the menu quite varied with excellent choices for adults and children alike. Would definitely recommend for a large group visiting Hershey!"

  • "This was our first time visiting Fenici's and we are from the area. The service was fantastic, the food was very good. It was a very relaxed atmoshpere. We will be visiting again."

  • "It's one of the best Italian places I've been to in the Hershy/Harrisburg area. Their desserts were great too!"

  • "Fenicci's is always our special occasion dinner destination. My wife and I just celebrated our 34th anniversary there, and we've been marking our birthdays and anniversaries there, along with an occasional 'night out' for all of these years. The spaghetti and meatballs are my favorite, and my wife loves the seafood dishes. Between the great food and the friendly atmosphere, I don't know of a better place around the Harrisburg/Hershey area."

  • "Delicious chicken covered with crab cake dish. Pasta with their "famous" sauce was nothing special. Meatball was good. Chopped salad was ok but I have had better and fresher appearance. Bathroom was not updated and only one stall was working. I was disappointed and when going back to Hershey, I will probably not return. Place would benefit from updating decor, lighting, bathroom and menu."

  • "My food was not as I ordered, I ask for marinara sauce and it was a spicy sauce. We asked for separate checks that didn't happen and my seafood was not prepared according to how the waitress said it would be prepared. Maybe you were too busy that evening we were there but overall it was disappointed."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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 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."

  • "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 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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."
