full gluten free menu
We went here because my step daughter is gluten intolerant. They have a separate gluten free menu which made ordering easy. We also had a two year old with us and they supplied crayons and a picture to color on. The pasta was house made and was very good. the pizza was very good too.
The place feels like a family run restaurant, where you could tell they were concerned the guests were enjoying themselves.

Piazza Sorrento: Hits a homerun
Our second time here and we couldn't be more pleased. Our server and bartender went way out of the way to make our dinner enjoyable. From getting the air temperature correct for us to going out to the store to get a fresh orange for our drinks, we couldn't have been treated more like royalty. The drinks and appetizers negronis and bellinis were just fine and the bruschetta and asparagus/proscuitto rolls were perfect. We all enjoyed our 4 pasta main courses and desserts. There is nothing like this dining experience in Central PA.

Gal was great with service.
Gal was great with service. We had a need for a no salt meal and was accommodated. Thank you.

We had a group of five at Piazza Sorrento.
Pros: The food was very good. I had the rigatoni with shrimp and artichokes and would recommend it. I also tried the ricotta cheesecake for dinner. Suprisingly light and also quite good. The prices are pretty good.
Cons: It was very loud so hard to hear what others were sating at our booth.
We will be going again :)

Great food, great service
The authentic Italian food was fantastic and the service was outstanding. Definitely going to make another trip back to Piazza Sorrento!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had eggplant parm..was just OK. Favorite meal at table was grilled gnocchi. Gluten free lasagna was good but Luke warm.....sent back but came back with warmer sauce but food wasn't hot. I have had much better italian food. Bread and salad were very good.

service with a smile
Our server Nicole was incredible. Personal yet perfessional. Great menu recomendations and realized how to pace the food coming out so that we got to enjoy every bit of it. The busboy Austin was great as well. It was nice to see the employees working as a team with smiles on their faces. Can;t wait to have the chance to visit again.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was phenominal... everything down to appetizers and salads. Service was great and prices were more than fair. Another great thing was the option to select 'Small' or 'Full' portion sizes with adjusted prices.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
I would go again
This place was excellent, Chicken Parm was very good and the chicken alfredo was creamy and rich, very very good. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Made a reservation and arrived early and seated right away. Place always seemed busy but never crowded. Nothing bad to say about this place and if I ever visit Hershey again, I will be back.

Had great food along with wonderful Service. Highly Recommend this quant little place. Something for everyone!! Glad I picked this place for my 45th B-Day dinner. Dined here 1 other time and it was my Man's first time and he loved it as well.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gluten free dream!
this place is fantastic and has an extensive gluten free menu!!!! We could have ate there every meal of our Hershey vacation!

Delicious Anniversary dinner
We chose Piazza Sorrento to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Ryan was our server and if you can request him you should! He was gracious enough to buy us dessert! :) The food was delicious and we truly enjoyed our evening at Piazza Sorrento.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Most definitely worth going!
Decided to make it a mother-son dinner date night here and made reservations for 6:45pm. We arrived a little bit early, wanted to account for any Hershey traffic, but our wait was minimal. The dining area was kind of small and cramped but coming from an Italian family, I understand that the owners are trying to get that "back home with family in Sicily" feel. It was a little bit loud in the dining area only because there were so many people, but it did not take away from the fact that the food and service were excellent, amongst the best that I've ever had. They have an extensive wine list, several different beers available and a gluten-free menu that is second to none and even includes desserts. Will definitely be returning again!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was amazing, from appetizers to drinks and dessert. I had the crab tortellini. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!! :-)
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Extensive wine and cocktail list, great authentic italian food. A variety of appetizers to choose from. The service is always spectacular, specifically if Laura is your server. The chicken picatta is my new favorite but the homemade meatballs and the garlic shrimp are also among my favorites.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Close to Hershypark
We went there after spending the day at Hershypark (10 min away).
We happened to find this place by accident (there is a Subway next door), but we returned there after reading various reviews. This place is very worthwhile to go and get some good cuisine with a reasonable price, after all the time spent eating fast food at amusement parks.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a gem!
Our group loved the experience at Piazza Sorrento! The ambience was pleasant; the restaurant was clean and welcoming; the staff was friendly, engaging, and competent; and the food was delicious! We will definitely be choosing this gem when we return to the area. Great time!!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had an excellent Anniversary Dinner meal! The Lobster Ravioli is the best I have had. Great choice if you are in Hershey.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Italian restaurant in Hershey!
My family and I have dined here several times and both the food and service are consistently outstanding. They have done a wonderful job combinining part pizza shop, part bar and part restaurant all into one. The main dining room is kind of small and cramped, but is inviting and has a "Tuscan Appeal". They are kid-friendly as well. The vast majority of the recipes for the dishes on the menu are authentically homemade. They also have an extensive gluten-free menu (including desserts) which is second to none. They have a notable wine list as well as several different beers on draught. It is so easy to make reservations here and they do a wonderful job of accommodating your party and any needs you might have. We will definitely return!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The only complaint I have is that we made reservations for 7:15 but were not seated for 35 minutes after. If you are in a hurry, this is not the restaurant for you as the service took two hours. There is also a small dining area.
The food itself was awesome. All of the people in our seven-person group loved their food, and the portion sizes are good for the price.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ask for Nicole Reynolds as
Ask for Nicole Reynolds as a server. She is awesome.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Food was excellent. Could have been a cozier ambiance
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Place to Eat
WE go here often. Nicole has been our waitress several times - she is friendly, helpful, and a great waitress. The food - awesome gnocchi.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
nice setting and meal
My wife had an excellent shrimp and scallop scampi, I had crab cakes, son had a pizza. We were pleased with our meal and were pleased with our meal and service.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The hostess was very accomodating when we arrived 2.5 hours early for our reservation and asked if we could get an earlier meal. I had the scallop/shrimp scampi while my husband had the steak and blue cheese fettucine. My husband is not a big fan of "Italian" food, but we loved both dishes. We had raspberry cheesecake for dessert and it so delicious. The server did a great job, as well. If you are in the Hershey area, this is the place to go. It was the first restaurant recommended by our innkeeper, and he seemed pleased to know I had already made reservations online.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
introducing some out of town folks
We boosted to some out of towners this was the place to come visit while in the Hershey area. Piazza Sorrento lived up to every hype we gave them, wonderful evening.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
wonderful dining experience
There were four of us dining. Two had the lasagna which they loved. My wife had her favorite grilled salmon with spinach risotto which was delicious as usual. I had the shrimp and artichokes with rigatoni. It was exceptional. The waitress was very friendly and attentive.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We lucked out!
We found this wonderful restaurant when searching on line for a place to meet friends in Hershey. None of us had ever been there before and decided to take a chance. Wow! We are so glad we opted to meet at Piazza Sorrento! Our experience is limited to the restaurant so we cannot comment on the bar or pizza area. The food was excellent and the quiet atmosphere was perfect for people who wanted conversation rather than TV and noise with dinner. We will definitely be returning in the weeks and months to come.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We just ate at Piazza Sorrento and both had fantastic meals. I had the Tuscan Sausage Canneloni which was so delicious and my husband had the 3 cheese ravioli. The owner Pete stopped by and chatted with us, it was so interesting to hear how he starte the resaurant. I would highly recommend this place and we will be back.
PS (Piazza Sorrento) Fantastic!!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for celiacs
I appreciate the extensive GF menu, it's why I always come back.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gluten Free Dinner with Family
It is next to impossible to find a place to eat that offers Gluten Free menu items, but here you have your own menu. That's, right. And entire menu for the gluten free diner! And, the food is wonderful! They even have dessert, which is something people who live GF have to pass on. The other diners in my party did not have a food allergy and they also enjoyed dinner just as much as I did.
The service here is a bit slower to give you time to linger over your meal, and because everything is prepared fresh. Well worth the wait.
This place gets packed on the weekend, so make sure to make a reservation.
I cannot say enough good about this place!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed this restaurant.
We enjoyed this restaurant. The homemade pasta was excellent. Our waitress made some great menu suggestions. We will definitely go here again.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I picked this place at random,
I picked this place at random, given the reviews on Open Table. It so close to Turkey Hill Minut Mart that I was a little worried. No need to be, this is great food fairly priced. I had the veal marsala/risotto and my companion had the clams/linguini. Both were excellent, and not over-priced. But the noise level on a Saturday night was pretty high. I felt like I was yelling, and several times the waiter had to repeat himself (Ryan). I'm glad they're busy but my heart rate dropped as I finally left the place at 9:22PM. I had 7:00 reservations and was seated just fine at 7:07; no complaints. I was surprised that it was a 2 hour meal. This is a family place for sure, and that's what makes it fun for many.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant is one of my absolute favorites in the Hershey area and by far my favorite Italian restaurant in the area. The food is always wonderful - very fresh and fantastically seasoned. In the fall I adore the butternut squash ravioli but they were sold out of it so I had the lobster ravioli which was the best I have ever had! My boyfriend had the Italian Sampler - lasagna, fettuccini alfredo, and chicken parm - too much for any one person to eat but great leftover as well.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome Authentic Southern Italian
Real homemade Southern p Italian food from the Sicialian owners. From the homemade pasta to the homemade desserts, all was spot on!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We found this place a few years ago during a meeting at the Hershey Lodge. We now find excuses to drive the hour and 45 minutes to go for dinner or lunch. Great food!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gluten free yumminess
Piazza Sorrento is always delicious and by far the best gluten free restraint in the area. I took two friends from out of state here and they loved it. My only warning would be, even with reservations it will take some time to get seated because the food is sooo good and fresh you will wait a while to get it. Order an appetizer, eat the bread, have some wine. It's a great place.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
our 1st visit
My wife and I live in Hershey now and decided to visit for our 7th anniversary dinner. Your place was very nice even though we did feel a tad out of place. Hershey is usually upscale and we are not. We weren't treated any differently but it did feel like your restaurant was out of our league. The food was excellent but we thought a little pricey. Again we understand upscale. While we enjoyed our visit, i'm not sure how many return visits we will make.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was amazing and the service was excellent!!! We will be returning as often as possible. The price for the portion size was unbelievable. You leave feeling satisfied with money to save. The homemade entrees were tasty and large but not overbearing. The pasta was fresh and light, matched with simple sauces the also had hints of complex tastes. Very good food! !!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my 2nd time dining here at Sorrento's. The service was so great! The food tasted delicious. It was a bit loud and sometimes hard to hear the server speaking to us and us speaking to her. I definetly recommend giving Sorrento's a try, it may become your favorite new place to eat.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always, excellent presentation!
As always, excellent presentation! Great tasting! A favorite local gem!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic, Authentic Italian
The appetizer spinach arancini rice balls served with a rich, thick marinara sauce were divine and "Oh, so Italian." Even the recommended wines or the house wines were enjoyable and available by the glass, so it was easy to pair a wine with a particular dish. The risotto with flecks of fresh parsley was memorable served with broiled salmon and tomato butter. The tastes were distinctive but melted together in a fresh richness. Food presentation on the plate, excellent table service, and the quality of the freshly prepared food, authentically Italian, will keep us going back. The owners are delightful many times visiting diners at their tables, the staff well trained; this is a quality operation you shouldn't miss,
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really good food. Kids Menu
Really good food. Kids Menu had some nice options. My wife had the Gnocchi and it was delicious! i had the eggplant appetizer and it too was incredible! some others in our party had the Pizza and it too was very good. overall great experience.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Italian Food
Fortunately this was not our first visit to this restaurant. We waited almost 20 minutes after our reservation time before taking a table in the bar. Then, the waiter was overwhelmed and we waited again for him to arrive. It took so long that we asked the hostess to find him for us. Other than that, it was great. The food is authentic Italian and delicious. While the wine list is not long, it offers a good variety of wines. If you plan to go on a busy night, make a reservation and hope for the best!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Piazza Sorrento does not dissappoint. We visited specifically for the extensive gluten free menu which is always delicious from the appetizers to the dessert! Definitely caters to the special diet needs of those on a gluten free diet and are very knowledgeable. We dined with our children as well and they had a good menu to accomodate them as well. Delicious as always.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
My fiancé and I were on vacation and tried this place! Was amazing! Great food and service! We will be back!!!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for Lunch Meeting
We held an informal business meeting (3 people) over lunch and experienced outstanding service, very high quality food and very reasonable prices. Each of us had a great meal and did not feel rushed or interrupted unnecessarily. The restaurant had a very friendly atmosphere and the menu, including desserts, made it difficult to choose between some great food options. I would definitely return.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best Italian restaurant in Hershey!
Our family really enjoys coming to this restaurant. They do not compromise on quality, nearly all of the dishes are made from scratch right in their kitchen. The service is consistently outstanding. They also have one of the best gluten-free menus anywhere, a notable wine list and several popular beers available to select from. I grew up in an Italian family and coming to this restaurant reminds me of my whole family gathering around my great-grandmother's dining room table on a Sunday afternoon in the coal region for a full course Italian meal. When you come to this restaurant, from the minute you walk through the door to the minute that you leave, they make you feel like family.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had the chicken parmigiana, which is always very filling and tasty! My husband had the spaghetti with meatballs and was disappointed with the small portion, as was my mom with the gnocchi. Everyone agreed that the food was very tasty, just some of the portions were smaller than what they had expected.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Normally my wife and I go here for a complete dinner. However,this week we wanted to try their specialty pizza. What an absolute treat. We started with soup - pastafazool and minestrone. Both tasty, filled with great ingredients and perfect starters. Then came the pizza. My wife had the upside down pizza and I had a margarita. Perfect crust, thin and crisp, great sauce on the old world and a generous combination of Roma tomatoes and basil on the margarita. A totally delightful pizza night experience. The regular menu is excellent and the pizza menu is too. Well worth going there. The service is wonderful with caring and friendly servers.
