The restaurant was very nice and my waiter was great. Most of the food was great. However I ordered a dry aged steak they offered. I requested medium rare but got medium well. The waiter was very nice and say that when I cut into it, it was more on the well side he stated that to let him please take it back to have a new one done. I was happy with that. However a couple mins later a lady maybe the owner or manager brought it back out and told me that this is how they make there medium rare steaks. They would not recook anothe. It was very dry and to well done to eat. I ate about less then half and had it taken away. So I wasted money on the steak. The rest of the Italian food was very good. But do not order the steak unless you like it well done. Also it may have been sitting under a heat lamp for a bit. It was one of the last things to come out. Big gap from the rest of the food.

The is an average-to-below-average Italian place. Service leaves a lot to be desired, which could be overcome with stellar food, but rubbery calamari, bitter marinara, and out-of-the-box pasta do not a great Italian meal make. The ambiance is dark and dated. It isn't a quaint, historic experience as the owners tout, unless they mean that it was redone circa 1979. Again, bad service or bad food could be overcome with an amazing interior, but all together, this adds up to a recommendation to eat almost anywhere else.

The food was great and the portion size was big. The biggest surprise was when the bill came. We had a party of 8, 4 apps and drinks, and the bill was under $200. I do not know how you can beat that. We'll be going back there when we are in Hershey again.

As usual it was amazing. I must say I missed the warm Italian rolls. Rolls were ordinary poppyseed and cold.

Excellent food with a fabulous staff to support them. Every person from the hostess, to the waitress, to the people cleaning tables all went out of their way to make this an enjoyable dinner.Highly recommended. Even though this was our first visit, we will be returning again - an often!

We arrived early to have a pre-dinner cocktail. We found no room in the bar/lounge area. There was no area for waiting without be in the way of the wait staff. After being seated we tried to order a bottle of wine from a very limited wine menu. Our server then told us after some time that the bar was too busy and she would "eventually" get the wine. We then ordered our meal. Server appeared pre-occupied and not focused. Salad was delivered promptly but then magically entrees arrived almost immediately like some entrees might be pre-prepared. Had to ask for rolls. One entrée was not correct from what was ordered. Sausage was overcooked. Sauce had a burnt taste to it. One guest in our party did order dessert and said it was very good. After completing dinner and having to ask for check we waited 45 minutes. Then we were advised that the computer system was down and we would have to "wait until it came back up". After waiting longer with no communication from wait staff, we provided a credit card number and able to leave. Would not recommend this restaurant if you are going while an event is happening in Hershey at the theater, and if you expect food quality better than chain style food.

We were part of a party of 12 people for dinner. The service was excellent. The food was served in a timely manner. My entree, Lasagna, was good, but I have had better. The stromboli was excellent. The wine list could have been more imaginative.
Overall, an enjoyable experience by all in our party.

After we were seated we waited a long time for a waiter or waitress. When I finally asked a waiter at another table for a person he quickly just stepped in & provided excellent service! The penne was a little cold, something I've never experienced at feniccis before but the good was still delicious!

Pretty standard, would not recommend for a special occasion. This was our first time there and it looks like their menu probably hasn't changed since they have been open. While this is not always a bad thing, they could make some good changes to the dishes they have on the menu. Everything on the menu you could probably make better at home. It was overall okay, just nothing spectacular.

Not sure how it happened but I made a reservation via OpenTable but when we arrived at the restaurant they did not have it. They were very accommodating and we were seated promptly to a window table. Our server Erin was very friendly asked us if we had dined with them before. This was our first time so she told us the history of the restaurant as well as explained the menu items to us. The house dressing for the salad was delicious and we could tell it was house made. Our dinners arrived promptly and were very large in size. Overall, a great dining experience.

Everything was very satisfactory, except the baked potatoes. Both of ours were brown inside, one more than the other, which happens sometimes when potatoes are baked ahead and kept hot. I tasted both, and they were certainly edible even if they weren't appealing in appearance. We decided to eat them rather than return them to the kitchen.

We started eating at Fenicci’s in the late 1990s. Probably go there 40xs per yer(2x) this week. Medium priced venue. Something to eat for everybody. New specials frequently. Often never get past specials. Will be back in 2 weeks with business guests.

Had never been here before. Decided to give it a try after Hershey Theater. We were seated on arrival and our server came very shortly. We got drinks, an appetizer, salads and entrees. My daughter got a dessert to go. I would say that everything was delicious. Our only problem was figuring out where to park, but we found the free parking garage that’s only a half block away. Overall a wonderful dining experience

This was my second time at Fenicci’s and my mother’s first as a post theatre dinner. The service was great...our waitress was quick and very friendly. The food was fantastic. Best bruschetta I’ve ever had. I ordered the crab tortellini alfredo and my mother had the portobella crab...both were absolutely delicious.
I love the creativeness of the ravioli du jour, as well. My last time here it was shrimp scampi ravioli and it was so good that it’s the reason I chose Fenicci’s a second time.
Great job!

We had our grandson with us, and were in town for the Disney on Ice Show. The hostess was very courteous, and was prompt to get us to our seats. Our waitress, and I'm sorry I don't remember her name other than server # 208 from the Check # was absolutely fantastic! She immediately corrected a simple mistake from the kitchen, and interacted marvelously with our grandson Eli !!!! This was our fourth time being there and you can guarantee we will return many more times! Even got some refrigerator art for finishing all of my lasagna LOL !!!

The waiter was great! The crab dip appetizer was really good. However, the main course came way out to fast, which we both had their "chef's choice" lasagna. It was hot on the outside and cool on the inside, hardly any cheese, layers of noodles with nothing in between. I've had better lasagna at a family restaurant although the mushroom sauce was good. Our desserts, the tiramisu and the strawberry/chocolate/pistachio ice cream ball in a chocolate shell were delicious and their drink of the evening, "The King's Cup" was phenomenal. My friend had a little trouble with the wine she was served as the second glass did not taste like the first. She was told that it was a new bottle that was opened and that's probably why it tasted different. Now, she's a wine drinker and knows what she's tasting but the waiter insisted and then brought the manager over to confirm their case. So, she settled for what they had given her as she didn't want to argue. I do believe she was given a different brand of the cabernet she was drinking. So, I don't think we'll be going back there. Hershey has alot of great places to eat at!

We went with a sizeable family birthday gathering for our Granddaughter's 18th birthday. Made reservations, and table was ready exactly on time. Appetizers were excellent. The pork belly nachos were just wonderful. House wine was very good and plentiful. Italian entrees were very good. Service was excellent, especially for a larger group. That's the good stuff. On the other hand, based on my sample of one plate, STAY AWAY FROM THE SANDWICHES. I had an Italian "grinder" sandwich that was absolutely inedible. The meat tasted like it had been left open in the refrigerator for days - dry and bitter. The lettuce was spoiled, and covering it with melting cheese did nothing for it. All in all though, we had a most enjoyable evening. I would certainly recommend the place for almost any occasion. Again, the service was a highlight - really first-rate.

Often visit Fenicci's when attending a show or symphony at the Hershey Theatre. The food is always excellent and wait staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Either Phil, the owner, or Bill, the manager, will usually stop to chat and make sure everything is to your liking.
