The food was average. We were rushed through our meal. Boxes were brought out while we were all still eating.

We had reservations—seated immediately. Fresh rolls were delicious. Calamari was flavorful. Had the pizza and seafood fettuccine—very creamy and lots of seafood. Peanut butter pie was amazing too! Will return soon!

After reading the owner’s (Phil) animated and hilarious responses to All reviews but particularly the negative ones, we had to see for ourselves. We were greeted by friendly faces who shared their excitement as they waited for the cast of Beautiful to arrive later in the evening.
We immediately hit it off with our waitress ,Mary, who was also raised in NYC by immigrants from Southern Italy. Before we even got to the menu we loved the place.
The Expresso Martini was prepared as it should be with Express Coffee and DARK (no BAILEYS, GODIVA, ...). We had to try the meatballs and they did not disappoint. The meat sauce (never gravy) was to die for!
Since many of the Pasta dishes had cream based sauces( too northern for this Sorrento girl) , I asked Mary if simple garlic and oil could be substituted.
No problem as all dishes are prepared to order.
I had a wonderful seafood combination served over linguini (al dente). IMy husband ordered the Lasagna that was delicious to the last bite. And yes, he was given a certificate. I should also mention that the bill was ridiculously inexpensive. We hope to return one day and maybe get to meet Phil.

Excellent dinner. Wine List is limited - a Montepulciano would be a plus. Our server was delightful.

A favored stop both before and after the Theatre. The staff is always attentive, but not obtrusive, and especially aware of the needs of theatre-goers.

We were here for dinner before a show at Hershey Theatre. Two historic, local gems in one night. Perfecto!

This was our 4th visit and probably our last. We had made a point to visit anytime in the Hershey area and was pleased with past visits. This time was disappointing. Service was very slow. Took well over 1 hour to get dinner server. Fried calamari appetizer was served warm/cold. Bread was day old reheated dry rocks, my husbands barely warm seafood fra-diablo was sparse with seafood. I had chicken over risotto which the risotto was good but the chicken literally tasted like it came from a store bought bag of ready made Purdue chicken slices. So disappointing.

The Chilean sea bass was the best tasting I’ve ever had 👍🏻 Please continue with the family recipes that have been in the restaurant for generations.

We had a wonderful romantic dinner, the food was great and service was quick. Our waitress was very friendly. It was a great place for quiet conversation over dinner.

Very good food and service. If there was anything that I would say that I didn’t like was that I made a reservation and got seated by the bar where someone who didn’t make a reservation got a table of 8 privately.

We dined here prior to a show at the Giant Center. We let our waitress know that we had a time crunch. She assured us we would make it and she was right. We had a great meal (orders included chicken parmigiana, salmon, butchers block and seafood alfredo). Everyone enjoyed their meals and a few had leftovers. We will surely visit again .

Fenicci's was very pleasant. The staff was very accommodating. The food was delicious. The pizza was "gluten-sensitive," which was fine for my needs and was delicious. Will definitely return the next time we are in Hershey.

We picked Fenicci's because we were heading to the theater for the show. It's very convenient and we made the show just in time! Thank you!

Very good Italian dishes. Everyone seems to enjoy the upside down pizza. Service is outstanding and prices are lower than many other restaurants in the area.

My boyfriend and I had such a wonderful Valentine’s Day dinner here. This was our second year in a row coming here for Valentine’s Day and I’m positive that we will keep coming back. Our waitress was excellent and the food was amazing. I really liked how they had a flower for each of the ladies that night. I will definitely recommend Fenicci’s to all my friends and family. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.
