    Great food, great environment, awesome location. Eat some delicious Italian here before you go to the theater or an event at the Giant Center, or finish up here after a fun day at the park. A Hershey classic!

    I usually do not leave reviews however, I wanted to express my disappointment with this restaurant. It is definitely an odd building and layout for a restaurant but I can appreciate the character. We sat on the patio which I liked and preferred. Service to the table was slow at first but salads, app and drinks came out fast. From there downhill. Dinner took an hour to come out as well as our children’s meals, which was disappointing being that it is extremely hard for kids as young as ours to sit that long but they were patient. Waitress said kitchen was behind but the restaurant was not full. The food to me was terrible. I ordered portobello with crabmeat that was ruined by being drowned in Alfredo sauce. To the point you could even see what was under it. The vegetables were cold and def frozen. My husband did not care for his Chicken parm. Also, the bathrooms were not clean. Would not return there next time we are in Hershey.

    Location is great. We were a group of 11 people: most of us ordered pasta- dry and below average. We wanted some bread before meal and were told that bread would come with dish! Outrageous, right? We live in Boston - rest. Was not what expected.

    Fenicci's has become a "go-to" place anytime we visit Hershey. This time we had house salads (the homemade dressing is garlicky and delicious) and the white pizza. This is real white pizza - no spinach, no broccoli, just lots of cheese and garlic - and it was pretty much to die for authentic. Oh, yeah, we'll be back.

    As a local to the Hershey area, I am quite pleased with the food and atmosphere for my first-time visit. This restaurant not only cares for their tourist needs but us locals as well. Employees and Owner at the restaurant are very friendly and welcoming. I would be making it back sometime soon to try out their other entrees.

    We were very impressed with our whole dining experience! Making the reservation was super simple. We arrived a few minutes early and were promptly seated at a lovely outside table for two. Our server arrived within moments with water, and told us the wonderful history of the site, and took drink orders. He was very friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu, and we had wonderful service from him our whole time! All that we ordered was delicious, and very satisfying! We will definitely find our way back to this place-- worth the drive for us!!

    Food was average. I had soup. Our salad came out almost immediately after my soup which was ok. We took 2 bites of our salad and our entrees showed up. It was like they were rushing to get us out. The timing might have been bad because we had to wait about 5 minutes for the salad dressing.

Our server was friendly and very attentive when needing anything, the food was delicious and the prices are very reasonable! The menu was huge so the worst part of it all was deciding what to order.

    All of the staff was extremely sweet and accommodating. The waitress was very kind and brought our drinks and food out quickly, the food was extremely good, the hostess and management was top notch to make our day special. They made our lunch extra special by bringing out our 9 month old his very first meatball with a shirt that said “I had my very first meatball at Fenicci’s.”

    We received excellent service and found the food quality to be better than the Hotel Hershey’s venues, for less money. We recommend the pesto seafood risotto, indulgent but full of flavor! Also we enjoyed their homemade tortilla chips & watermelon salsa and mussels. Our kids raved about the garlic bread.

    The Hanna’s started eating at Fenicci’s in the late 1990s. We refer to Fenicci’s as our Kitchen having literally eaten there 100s of times. Bob Hanna brings clients to Fenicci’s, esp during the Twp Supervisors convention.

    Overall, I think this restaurant has great food, portion sizes, and affordable for families. They also do an awesome job st celebrating people’s birhdays. Great gluten free options and they have a cute porch to sit on during nice summer evenings but I guaruntee you will need reservations and specifically tell them you want seated there as this restaurant gets packed! My one complaint is the restaurant does not have great access for individuals with mobility issues. From what we observed, there was only an entrance with stairs unless they have another entrance that my party was unaware of. The night we went, we had a waitress who was not that great and seemed rather scatterbrained, but I have been there before and had excellent service so it is kind of a shot in the dark. I will be back!
