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.

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.

Restaurant had an excellent gluten free menu and the food was wonderful. Service was not so good and it was very noisy. We were a party of 4 & could hardly hear each other. I would try the restaurant again because the food was so good.

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!

Food was good. The chef accidentally forgot to put cheese on my salad but that was easily remedied. We couldn't get a large pizza in the dining room area. That was disappointing. Pizza was good but not great. Salad was very good.

Return visit. Solid experience. Crab cakes were amazing; large and meaty. Squash ravioli in sage butter sauce was good bit a bit bland. Needed some brown sugar/nutmeg or cinnamon. Thought prices a bit high for Italian.

Really really delicious. I enjoyed everything. Prices are steep for the portion size. But the food was absolutely delicious. Asked about which sangria was best and they said “we have a white and red sangria” but the menu showed multiple others... kinda odd. But red sangria was yummy.

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.

Our party was warmly greeted and then seated promptly. The server was professional, very friendly and interactive. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. The food order was accurate and nicely presented. The salad was refreshing and the pizza was very good---crispy and covered nicely with toppings. Beverage was refilled appropriately. This was not my first visit and I plan to return to try other menu choices.

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
