The Place For Italian Food In Hershey, PA!

My wife, son Henry and I found this place through another restaurant rating app and boy are we glad we found it. The food was incredible and the service (Nikki was our waitress) was even better...if that's possible! This is now our "go-to" restaurant whenever we're in town! The quality of the... read more

Walked in around 8pm on a busy Friday night in July. Hostess was able to seat 3 of us in a very comfortable booth in the bar right away.Our waitress, Angie, was great. She even went next door to get my daughter chocolate ice cream with her 'kids menu' order because they only had vanilla in house.

We recently ate here as a family. We sat in the back patio which was a nice diversion from inside restaurants. We chose outside because inside seemed quite warm and tight (that was just on our walk to the patio). My children ordered plain pasta and pasta with sauce and meatballs. They enjoyed their food. The red sauce tasted good... More

This friendly place has an old-school atmosphere and a nice patio. It has been around for many, many years and the confidence of that longevity shows. Service was friendly, with excellent options to have your meal exactly as you like. Crab cake was truly crab--not mostly breading-- and came with a side dish of your choice of pasta and sauce....

Walking back to our motel, we noticed this restaurant and decided to try it. We were seated promptly by a very cordial gentleman who appeared to be the manager or owner. Not knowing what to order, we decided on the "upside down pizza" and a salad. Both were delicious although there seemed to be a lot of crust around the... More

Unbelievable food. Prices lower than local pizza take out! Order the fresh veal and you will have two meals and a smile on your face. My family is diverse (nice for picky) and everyone is dying to go back. Highly recommend reservations for a large party

I'm sorry we really wanted to have a good experience and we found lovely the vegetable garden outside the restaurant, but unfortunately this place needs a little bit of love and updates. The food was really bad, we couldn't even eat the beef marsala penne because it was really bitter... And the eggplant parm was greasy, not saying that the... More

Our large party was seated without a problem since we had a reservation. We ordered a bunch of pizza's which were just ok, ghost wings which were very good and a bunch of salads that were ok as well. The beer is cold and service is good. Not many places open for dinner after a day at the park and... More

Thank you, the ghost wings are made with peppers from my garden. A little confused about the pizza? It has been a Hershey Tradition since 1947 maybe you were not used to the "Upside Down" cheese on the bottom aspect of it? If you would like traditional Ny style pizza try my Pizza shop and Ice Cream Parlour, next door,... More
