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.

Poor hostess service. Refused to give us a booth when we even had a mid week reservation. Dinner was not even busy. 6 empty booths while we dined!!! Erg!!!

The food was excellent, in spite of the fact that I requested pasta instead of risotto and did not get pasta. Rolls were hot and delicious, chicken marsala with fresh asparagus was really good. Glasses were constantly refilled without having to ask. Desserts were yummy too.

My sister and I were visiting Hershey to attend a concert at the Hershey Theater. Trip Advisor rated this restaurant highly and we found the positive reviews to be spot on! We were seated promptly per our reservation, service was friendly, and the quality of our meals was authentic and excellent. We had the chicken parmigiana with pasta, and chicken piccata with risotto. The only negative was the very high noise level (the place was packed). But we would definitely go back for the food the next time we’re in the area. Reservations recommended.

We were seated in the 'extra' area off of the main dining room...which was fine until half way through our meal (about 8:00) when the room was re-arranged to make room for a soccer team and their parents or an ice hockey group or some large group...the re-arranging was not pleasant and the group who came in were loud and we were anxious to leave.

Our service was poor as was the server’s knowledge of soup ingredients.

My soup was so salty I had to add water from my glass to make it edible.

The gf Caesar was lacking.

The restaurant has good Italian food, which is hard to find in Central PA. The gluten-free options are exceptional. The service this time was not good at first, very slow. Another server noticed and chipped in to help so the service improved significantly.

Here for a conference and am so tired of only having salad as a gluten free choice. Today I am so happy. I haven’t had pizza in over 10 years because of my celiac diagnosis. Piazza Sorrento made my dreams come true. It totally wowed me. James, our server, was delightful. I had a lovely evening and enjoyed every morsel of my meal. I highly recommend the pizza but don’t stop there. The ravioli is to die for as well. This place is the answer to a Celiac’s prayers. Thank you.

Was in town to visit the Hershey Theater and booked a reservation at Piazza Sorento. I was very pleased with the food and service. Our server was very attentive and friendly. The food was absolutely fantastic! The Shrimp crostini were to die for! If you are in the area, I highly recommend this restaurant, but strongly encourage a reservation!

Food was fabulous and wait staff was outstanding. The dining room was a little too noisy to hold a conversation. Was amazed at the Gluten-free options and the genuine care that the wait staff showed to my Gluten-free needs. We will be back!

We are from South Jersey but were in town to see a show at the Hershey Theater. We almost missed the restaurant as it is attached to a Turkey Hill convenience store (which I was thrilled since I love Turkey Hill iced tea and we don't have TK convenience stores in Jersey). The place was pretty busy for 5pm on a Saturday and we were seated right away. The place is very cute. There are plenty of choices on the menu and apparently there are specials but our waiter never told us them (or the people who sat behind us later so I guess he didn't feel the need). Would have liked to have known them as they are not printed out and given with the menu. Overall we were pleased with the food and would go back again if we are ever in the area.

All food items were delicious and served at appropriate temperatures. One minor glitch - when our waiter cleared the salad plates, I reminded him that we did not have the rolls yet. He apologized and immediately brought them to our table.

The place was amazing. My only complaint was the Bruschetta was not that good.
The staff was attentive and knowledgeable, all the pasta was hand made as with the desserts.
Will go again if I'm in the area again.

My wife and I came for Valentines Day dinner. Piazza Sorento’s was where we had our first date. We’ve returned on several occasions to celebrate our anniversary. There was a menu with specials. I got the crab cakes and my wife got the salmon. Both were really good. Our server was excellent. Highly recommend dining here.
