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.

We dined at this restaurant a year ago when we were in Hershey and had to come back. Jillian was an outstanding waitress, food was amazing, and would definitely come back. It was hard to choose from their menu, along with their nightly specials, but we should make an effort to return more often to sample more of their menu! Outstanding, and their reviews don't do the food justice!

Piazza Sorento is one of our go to places. The food is always good, and reasonably priced. Cocktails are very good too. We often get seafood there, which I did this time. I had a very nice sized portion and nice presentation of halibut. I like risotto which is often available. Definitely recommend.

We make a trip to Hershey every year for the holidays and make Piazza Sorrento part of the tradition. It’s a local gem (not a chain) that takes pride in their food and service. Their gravy is some of the best I’ve ever had. The crustini is the best appetizer on the menu to get started. I would also suggest the House red. All around great food!!

10 of us ate at Piazza Sorrento before a recent show at Hershey Theater. We all enjoyed our food - pizzas, eggplant parmigiana, lobster ravioli, fettucine alfredo, etc. Our waiter Ben was great, and handled the large crowd without a slip up! We sat in a long table in the back which was cozy without feeling cramped

I'm Italian American from Northeast PA. The Sauce was exceptional, thick, not too spicy, just like Grandma's! They offer regular or small portions which met our preferences to a tee. The topper was the dessert tray plus the Cannolis. Who could ask for more!

Went there after searching for a Pizza place to have dinner before we went to see Alton Brown at the Hershey Theater. Asked for my crust on the "meat lovers" pizza to be crispy and it was perfect. We also had the tiramisu for desert. It was great. I would highly recommend this nice Italian restaurant to anyone who likes pizza or Italian dishes.

My wife and I chose this restaurant, because it was rated # 1 in Hershey PA by TripAdvisor. The restaurant was very noisy. The pizza and the house salad were average , but the lasagna was very good . Kevin our waiter was excellent. The meal prices are very reasonable.

Excellent food! Very good waitress service. Good cocktail. Hostess #1 was poor. We checked in a bit early for our reservation and went to bar. She apparently forgot about us. At 15 minutes past reservation time, we approached hostess stand. Hostess #2 did not know we were there -- got us seated within a minute. Very noisy and crowded. Will go back but at a non-prime time for sure.

Had reservations for 7, didn't sit until 710, so wasnt bad for a Sat night. What was weird was that there several open tables the whole time.. Service a tad slow but it was a busy place, and appeared as though just one waitress for the whole room- Samantha, we are pretty sure her name, did an amazing job! Friendly, good recs, attentive without being intrusive. Food and drink DELICIOUS, and well worth value. All homemade pasta, sauce, bread, dressings! Italian sampler is huge, nearly two full meals of wonderfulness! Small place, so def get reservations. Parking out front was all full but some behind building.

This restaurant is a little over 80 miles from our home. We will make that drive again for some of the best pasta we've had in years. The veal Parmesan and Chicken Parmesan were terrific. Everything is home made and delicious.

We are from out of town but come often for work. I have eaten here before and thought food was wonderful. They changed their menu. I feel the food now is over priced and not seasoned enough. Both our dishes were bland. I had Shrimp with linguine in a white wine sauce and my husband had clams and linguine in white sauce. Neither of us thought, wow, this is really good. Our bill was over $80 (shared an appetizer, no drinks but we each had a dessert). My red velvet cake was dry like it sat out in the air for awhile. My husband liked his peanut butter chocolate dessert. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive. We have Italian restaurants near us that have better food for a lot less. I won't be going back again.

We are here twice while we were in Hershey. First time we stopped for pizza. The "old world" pizza is fantastic. The bartender, Steve who was also our waiter was very informative with his descriptions of the pizzas. Our next stop we decided on pasta. We made a reservation because it was Saturday night....good thing because it was packed. Our waitress, Jillian was super. She described the specials for that evening that weren't on the menu and also at the end with describing the desserts. Both our dinners were excellent! Definately try this place.....you won't be disappointed!
