No idea about the food, but we were turned away because there is no way to get a wheelchair into the restaurant. No ramp, no elevator, no access even through the kitchen and back door. Shame on the owners. This is 2016. Parking is across the street, which adds about 100 yards to the experience of getting to the restaurant.

Are you actually serious? We are a 100 year old building and with this said, it is impossible to retrofit to ADA standards. And I have researched it several times. I wanted to put a ramp in and change the bathrooms and the State said no, the whole building including the apartments had to be done. Impossible. When I meet... More

This place is on the humble side but they offer very good food. I had sauteed veal with fettuccine. The sauce was excellent. My wife had haddock which was very good as well as the vegetables but her baked potato was mediocre at best (what do you expect at an Italian restaurant?). The food prices were fine but the wine...

I come from an area which is known as Pizza USA. The quality of our take out is nothing less than perfect. Temperature. Flavor. Excellent.

I thought the food, service and price was average. Nothing to brag about here. About what one would expect if your standards are not too high. I might go back again but wouldn't necessarily recommend.

I really liked eating here. The only thing I did not like was that we were waiting out in the hallway, and it was kind of awkward. The hostess looked confused and took the wrong people to the wrong table. The other hostess took us back to only turn us around and switch hostesses to lead us to our table.... More

Nestled in downtown Hershey sits Fenicci's. It carries much history inside but it is dark and the food is overrated. A bit overpriced as well. Service was ok but not the best it could have been and the food was only about average. When there it wasn't even busy. We won't be going there again.

I guess I have to accept your opinion. Most people do not feel that blah about us but feel energetic. I think that with 95% of the menu being under $20 in Hershey Pa on Chocolate Ave we are at the correct price point. However I am very upset to hear about the poor service. We always attempt to be...

Were able to reserve a couple days before our event in Hershey and were grateful seeing that this is the holiday week. Server took our order as well as our drink order immediately in order to facilitate our getting to our venue in a timely manner. Husband had the pork tenderloin and it was delicious.

Thank you, as a secret the best way to get a table last second on busy weekends and holidays is to go to Feniccis.com and hit make a reservation as we always hold some tables on the web site. More

You need reservations but the dress code is not restrictive. Parking is limited but you can park across street. Very nice inside with true Italian feel. Servers are very professional and prompt. The food is excellent and a little above average on price. Very relaxing and no rush on moving you through.

Thank you, i find it so interesting how one person can say we are so casual and the other upscale. I guess we try to be everything to everyone, a romantic night out, a business meeting a large group of 50 kids with parents. a late nite glass of wine. etc. All i can say is we love what we... More
