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.

Server was very personable and helpful. Advised us immediately about dinner specials and items on the menu that were not available so we were informed before we placed our order.

We love this restaurant and it is one of our “go to” places!

This is our third time here , and always have a great meal . We are from out of town and always visit when coming to Hershey. My daughter is gluten free and has no problems eating here . The food is homemade and delicious. Staff is always friendly and attentive. So glad they were not affected by the pandemic as so many others were . Always in our list to visit !

Enjoyed the food immensely: The Grilled Gnocchi was tremendous; the penne al a vodka was flavorful and rich; the lobster ravioli was "scrumdeliumptious" (per my daughter); and the spicy crab linguini was spiced perfectly.

We were there just for the weekend but if we ever go back to Hershey, we will return. Thank you!

P.S. We also liked the rugs.

Food was amazing! Highly recommend the garlic shrimp crostini! Service was outstanding- well paced timing and very polite friendly and attentive. Don’t let the exterior of the location (in s strip mall next to a Subway and a gas station) fool you- it was an excellent dinner!

Our meal was absolutely superb at this restaurant! Three of us dined in and both the service and food were top notch. I throughly enjoyed my lobster ravioli meal. It was a perfect combination of taste and texture and one of the best meals I have ever tasted. My family also enjoyed their meals which was grilled gnocchi and sausage orecchiette. We also had a bruschetta appetizer which was a perfect balance of flavors without too much garlic. I can’t wait to dine here again on our next trip to Hershey!!!

Simple pleasure! Comfortable atmosphere, attentive service, and fantastic food. We dined as two couples and all of us "cleaned our plates." Kitchen accommodated special requests - No Problem. Had to even try 1 dessert with 4 forks. A great find.

Pre COVID I had the most delicious combo- The Italian Trio. The memories of that meal brought me back to have it again, now that we can dine as we used to. I noticed two differences in this meal; first of all, let me say the Marinara sauce was great. The Bolognese sauce was not as hearty, meaty, dark, full of flavor as I remembered. It had been meaty enough in the lasagna to carry the dish to that balance of meatiness and cheese. The Alfredo lacked the silky, creamy texture and the rich cheese blend of flavors I remembered. The pasta itself was perfection. I still love your restaurant- just missed the flavors I was seeking.

Very good food. Lobster Ravioli was too salty. I had the special with pasta, sausage and broccolini which was also very good. Service was good. Wine and beer selection was ok. Price was fair. Going back again.

My mother and I ate at Piazza Sorrento for the second time and once again loved it. She particularly enjoys this restaurant because she must follow a gluten free diet, something for which this restaurant is known. Overall, we had another very positive experience while dining here!

Considering this is a family restaurant, the quality of the ingredients were that of, if not better than many upscale wannabe eateries. Service felt a friendly but a bit rushed. While we thoroughly enjoyed everything we had, it should be noted that the food here is closer to traditional Sicilian than the standard Italian fare. Most notably the risotto. Sicilians make terrible risotto because they do not use Arborio rice so there is no creamy texture as one would expect in a risotto dish. I got the salmon over spinach risotto. Salmon was very good and perfectly prepared, risotto was flavorful but not creamy as expected. Our appetizers, eggplant rollatini and the clams were some of the best we've ever had (even overseas). My wife had the penne ala vodka which she also found to be very good.

Super family-friendly Italian restaurant near Hershey Park. We were running late for our reservation and they happily held our table for six. Great service and pretty good food. We'd return there on our next trip.
