A word from Piazza Sorrento
Voted "Best New Restaurant" by Harrisburg Magazine in 2009, Piazza Sorrento is a modern Italian restaurant based on the "Old World" Italian recipes of the owner's family back in Italy. The Bolognese sauce they grew up on and the tradition of family is the cornerstone of the Piazza Sorrento dining experience. Dedicated to providing the finest in service, food, and wine at a fair and competitive price, Piazza Sorrento makes regional and classic Italian cuisine using premium local ingredients while keeping the history of the dish and region intact.


Piazza Sorrento not only provides the best in authentic Italian cooking this side of the Atlantic, but also believes that all patrons, whether adults or children, should be welcomed like one big family - even those with certain dietary requirements. That is why Piazza Sorrento is widely known for their extensive Gluten Free menu, another reason patrons routinely drive over an hour or more to dine in relative ease and safety.

    We were going to a concert so we were happy to be able to make a reservation here. The bread was excellent, but I enjoy my caesar salads better when they are mixed up, rather than serving the dressing on the side. They have a great option of ordering a small or large portion, which is wonderful for Italian food. I had the lasagna and it was delicious, but my daughter had the gnocchi and was not very pleased with it. Service was good, but a little slow, although it did seem extremely busy. Overall very good experience

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 1/4/2012
    Celebrated my Grandma's 80th birthday at Piazza Sorrento. Food was very delicious and the service was outstanding!! The meals were very tasty - one of those rare treats that you just savor every bite. The waitress really went above and beyond. It was more noisy than I expected and for those with hearing difficulties, it's hard to stay in the conversation with a larger group. I'd love to go again, maybe when it's not as busy but it seems they are always packed. They did accommodate my request for a table that was easily accessible and had plenty of room. I really liked being able to reserve online - especially since I had to make a change shortly after the initial reservation. Awesome place, worth the price, highly recommended!!!

    Food and Service was Outstanding! Our perspective on Ambiance would have been Very Good had we been seated other than on the enclosed porch room, but we do have to take into consideration that we visited Dec. 23. a very busy time of year. We made reservations for 6pm and were seated immediately. I must eat Gluten Free and my husband and I were very impressed with the extensive selection on the Gluten Free Menu. All Gluten Free plates were clearly labeled when brought to the table for peace of mind. Thank you for an enjoyable dining experience.

    I brought my young children. I wasn't impresed that i had go pay an extra $4/plate to share the entrees with them. I'm the one who had to split the food, not the restaurant. So much for family dining. On three occasions the server had to say sorry for forgetting to bring items. I seppose is used to this. The food quality was excellent. I'd come back, but don't like the cheapskate charges.

    We had a toddler with us. They have a decent children's menu and they had a high chair available. His food came in an okay period of time, but then we waited and waited for ours. It came at least half an hour after his. The food, when it finally came, was very good.

    I was looking for a restaurant in Hershey that took reservations and wasn't too expensive. My sisters and I were going to a concert and wanted to have a relaxing dinner beforehand. I didn't even know this restaurant was in Hershey! What a great place. I like that it's two restaurants in one --- a pizza place on one side and a wonderful restaurant on the other side. The food was outstanding! I like the fact that you could get small or regular portions. The service was wonderful. They were attentive but let us eat at our own pace and relax. I would definitely go back again and am recommending it to lots of people. Thanks!

    We are repeat customers to Piazza Sorrento and will certainly visit again. We discovered the restaurant because we have a family member that is gluten intolerant and they do an outstanding job offering gluten-free meals. All of their food, gluten-free or not, is great, and we have recommended the restaurant to many others.

    This is a very pleasant, sit-down restaurant. They make you feel welcome. The staff is more than friendly and efficient. The restaurant owner/manager even comes to your table to make sure everything is to your liking. The food is outstanding. It is a favorite for sure. And, they offer almost everything on their menu in a gluten free option which is extremely important for someone like me. The price is middle of the road depending on whether you get an appertizer, dessert, or order drinks. Great Italian food.

    This place is worth a try! The food is very good and so is the service. I had the Woodsman pizza and my wife had the Margherita pizza and my daughters had the penne vodka and the veal parmesan (always the test of an Italian restaurant).The owner was very active supervising everything and making sure his guests were happy. Tried it with my family after a long day of fun at Hershey Park.

    I was impressed with what they did with the place - it used to be a "Country Kitchen"-type restaurant. The decor was well done which led to a nice atmosphere. The greeter wasn't particularly friendly, but the waitstaff was excellent. Excellent prices for the quality of food that was served, at least by Washington DC standards (where we are used to going out) - we figured that the same meal in DC would have cost another $20-30. Good wine selection and excellent prices on the per-glass menu. My wife had a seafood dish which she thought was excellent. I had Veal Saltimbocca, which I was happy to find wasn't over-salted, which is usually the case, but it was rather a bit under-flavored. It was perfectly cooked though, as was the pasta.
