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.

This is not the first time Carissa has been my server but this time, as always, she doesn't disappoint. She's a terrific server. And the food was great as always. GF ravioli. I can't find that many places so it's always a treat when I do.

We went to Piazza Sorrento on 11/16/21. It was very busy because of Thanksgiving. We ordered three cheese ravioli which was average. House salad was also average. Service was slow, but that was to be expected, since every table was booked.

Kids thought it was 10 stars! I’d say more of a 4 outta 5. Service and ambience great. Casual attire was fine but could go there for a fancy dinner as well. Didn’t try dessert but they looked amazing!

We’ve been dining here for years. We’ve recommended this place to dozens of people. I have to say we were super disappointed on our last visit. The prices went up, the portions and quality went down. No salads included with your entree anymore… my wife ordered the sausage orachiette with broccoli rabe. It was a bunch of bland sausage with chopped frozen broccoli in it for $26!!!! I got shrimp and garlic pasta that was very tasty but had about a cup of pasta with 6 shrimp for $23! Our kids had two kids cheese pizza and we had ice waters and 1 tea… total bill with tip was $83!!! If I’m paying that much for dinner for a family of 4 I might as well go to Devon….

We were in Hershey for the Calvacade of Bands and had dinner at Piazza Sorrento. Our service was phenomenal both at the bar and at our table, our food was excellent and the entire experience was perfection. We will definitely be back when we come for next years Calvacade competition and will highly recommend Piazza Sorrento to others!

Our server (Alexa), had many tables in her station but was always professional, fun and on top of things. We all had a great experience and great food. Only disappointment was this was our 3rd visit in the last 6 weeks and they are always out of taramasu, our favorite dessert!

This restaurant was an unexpected gem, especially as it seemed every other place was booked or unappealing. Piazza Sorrento was the family Italian restaurant that they put themselves out to be. The food was very good and reasonably priced, while our server was outstanding. We were pleased to have eaten here and would do so again.

We got married last year out in Hershey and came here during our stay. We enjoyed it last year so much and had a wonderful experience again. Emily was a very friendly engaging and excellent server. We will definitely come every year that we return to the area. Food was great.

Delicious as always and my favorite gluten-free spot. I always appreciate the attention to detail and the paper indicating gluten-free on the plate as you’re being served. As someone with severe allergies it gives me the comfort knowing I’m getting the correct item.

asked for a booth and was told none were available. Got a table in the center of the place lots of traffic passing us. Lots of booths available when we left that were never filled. She told us to specify on open table that we want a booth. didnt see that option but ok... wont be back as I am not from the area.

Piazza Sorrento is a hidden treasure! I found this restaurant, onlinw, when looking for a place to meet for my Mom's birthday in Hershey, to limit my brother's travel to join. It's in a "shopping plaza" location next to a gas station. Don't be tricked! The service was excellent in all regards. It's clean, spacious with a full bar and average atmosphere. Due to my profession, I have been to many restaurants, and the menu and quality of food is excellent! The pasta is homemade, they have a variety of very good meats, seafood, and sauces to accompany the pasta dishes. Other choices are available if you do not prefer pasta. Our entire party felt it was an excellent choice and would return and recommend this restaurant!

Second visit to this hidden gem in Hershey! After a full day at the park, we relaxed and had a really fine meal here. Despite their shortage of staff, our server was very attentive and the food was just as delicious as we remember it when we were here in 2017. Hope to get here more often when we are close by. Definitely a must!!
