About 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.

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.

Great food and extensive gluten free options that are very tasty. I've been here on three separate occasions and have not been disappointed other than them not having the GF tiramisu any of those times. I drive 45 minutes to dine here and will call next time to make sure they have the tiramisu! The seating is a little tight and the noise level is a bit loud, but the food makes up for it. My non-GF friends really enjoyed their food as well.

First impressions mean a lot: this restaurant is physically attached to a gas station. I nearly kept driving when I saw it, but we had reservations. I was looking for a pre-theater dinner option for my mom's 60th birthday. Piazza Sorrento is ranked as the #1 restaurant in Hershey on TripAdvisor. I have only ever visited Hershey for the theme park or the medical center, so I had to trust online recommendations. If this is the #1 restaurant in Hershey, I don't want to see what the others look like.

The food was acceptable but not worth the price. It was no more impressive than Olive Garden but with worse salad and bread. The separate dining areas are trying to be a fine Italian restaurant but it is really a bar and take out pizza place.

Our server was attentive and new the menu and wine list well. He also handled the busy dinner crowed with ease, despite narrow passage between tables.

The price just does not match the food quality or ambiance of the restaurant.

The service was excellent and the atmosphere was good. The lasagna was way overcooked and was mushy. But other than that the experience was good. Great bread.

Wonderful food, friendly and knowledgeable service, great selection. So many things on the menu look tempting that it's hard to decide! Butternut squash-filled ravioli and carbonara both exceeded expectations and far surpassed similar dishes we've sampled elsewhere. Excellent tiramisu.

The food was a bit high-priced for what I got. The usual bartender was not there so they had the usual fill-in for Monday nights and the drinks were half full and weak. When I asked for a tall which was the normal I usually get I was charged $18.

My Grilled salmon was overcooked, dry, even crispy, Neither the server nor manager, although informed, did not offer to rectify. I left a 17% tip, I should have left less. $170, including tip, was a high price to pay for an unappealing entre. Entre’s for others in the party were enjoyed.

We have passed the restaurant for a long time but never stopped in. When searching for a new Open Table restaurant that had a menu with gluten free options we were pleasantly surprised to find they had extensive number of GF options. Gave it a shot and loved the food and ambiance. Will be bringing the kids back next time.

Good food, but overpriced. Lobster Ravioli was disappointing as it was muted with excessive onion and shrimp in the sauce - detracted from the lobster. Cannaloni was OK, good taste and texture, but overpriced for what was provided. Been coming here for years - food is always acceptable and service is great, but feel it has lost its edge as the “go to place” for special occasions. $100 for three people for dinner and desert, no drinks.

We dined at Piazza Sorrento on 12/30/17. Immediately upon entering, we knew we had picked the right place. It smelled so good inside. We checked in with the hostess who was super friendly. They were ready for our reservation and we were seated quickly. It was cozy inside. We enjoyed a corner booth for our group of 5. The calamari appetizer was great as was the warm bread. The kids enjoyed the burger and pasta/meatballs. The adults enjoyed the Lobster Ravioli (2 orders) and Chicken Marsala. All tasted fresh and was delicious. We will definitely recommend this to friends and will return when in the area again.

Our waiter was not well trained. He didn't bring the bread until he brought the main course. I ordered penne pasta for my six year old son and he brought spaghetti and still charged us for it. Another patron was arguing with the owner about leaving a curtain closed to block the cold air. They had to take the argument away from the other patrons! No manager circled though to ask how we were doing! My lobster ravioli was great though!
