Walked into the bar/lounge and no one came to take our order. After 15 minutes, walked to the connected restaurant and sat outside. Menus were stained. Ordered appetizers, wine, and beer. Drinks were fine. The marinara sauce for the garlic bread came from a can. The double baked potatoes had so much processed cheese on top, it looked like old... More

I give it 2 star only because our server was really nice. The Alfredo sauce was awful, the meatballs were just yucky. The Italian wedding soup was okay. Thank goodness gor bread and salad.

We decided not to do Hershey Park due to the crowds. Opted for a nice dinner instead. Arrived on a Sunday at 5:30 they sat us right down. The Bruschetta was little strong with the onions but everything else was perfect. I think if they cut them smaller it would have been fine. I had the baked penne and my... More

Get out of your hotel and into town for a great Italian meal at Fenicci's. Thank you TripAdvisor for steering us in the right direction yet again. I had the Peccorino Sicciliano Tortellini which was absolutely delicious. My husband had the Seafood Fra Diablo, which was fried seafood over pasta which he liked. I had excellent tiramisu for dessert. The... More

Our group of 4 families, including 7 children between ages 5-10, had an unforgettable restaurant experience at Fenicci's two nights ago. Our server, Melissa, went above and beyond the call of duty in serving all of us, especially the children. I mean, have you ever been in a restaurant where the waitstaff will start cutting up the kids' pasta without... More

Just stopped in for Italian cuisine and were pleasantly surprised by the excellent guest service. Everyone from the front desk, and host, to our server (Austin)...they all picked up on subtle details about our party that most restaurant staff would not have. We felt very appreciated before our first plate arrived; and after that, we were lavished with the finest... More

My husband and I had another opportunity to eat at Fenicci's and found it to be as good as it was the last time we ate there. The food was fresh and very tasty. All of the employees are very pleasant. Our waiter Alec was very professional and nice. My only suggestion would be to make reservations, we did not... More

Order the mozzarella sticks and the lasagna! Service was lacking, but food was great and better than most choices nearby. We stayed at the new Fairfield Inn and Suites on Chocolate Ave and this was a 2 minute drive from there. Prices were great for the food!

This is a "down home cooking" Italian restaurant. It is not a fancy gourmet establishment. It serves an immense assortment of typical Italian fare including many different pastas, meats and seafoods. Besides the traditional dishes, it also offers several interesting combinations. The portions are generous. It has a decent wine and beer list. Prices are not excessive. This is a... More
