a fine place to eat, and an easy walk from the convention center

I had a nice meal here the other day. Nothing fancy, but certainly good - and a fine value. It is a very short walk from the convention center, which works out well.

Dafno's Italian Grille is one of my favorite places in the Hershey area, and I often take out-of-town guests there. The food is reliably good, the prices reasonable, and the service is fast and attentive. Pasta dishes are delicious and the salads are fantastic. I had the pizza once, and it was quite good. The menu is somewhat limited, but... More

Dafnos is on my speed dial list because the food is great and they package it nicely for carry out. The food is always ready on time. Save room for dessert. The homemade chocolate cake and tiramisu can't be beat.

While in the area with our 4 children, my husband and I searched for an Italian restaurant and we were fortunate to find Dafnos. I called and spoke to Peg, who had a table waiting when we arrived. From start to finish, in all ways, our experience was superb! Our waitress was kind, attentive, and great with our children as... More

We have lived in this area for 40 years and know our resturants. On 01-31-15 after a show all the really great resturants were full. After several stops, we found Dafnos Italian Resturant. Clean friendly, prompt service. Had a glass of wine, it was the best thing there becuse it wasn't cooked. I love italian wedding soup, my spouse and... More

I have always wanted to try Dafnos, but never had the opportunity until recently. I certainly have been missing out on the best Italian restaurant that I have ever eaten at! The food was simply amazing! Huge portions at affordable prices. The vegetable lasagna was out of this world. I can't wait to go back!

The food tastes excellent, especially the Pomadoro sauce. The portions are just right and so is the price. Great place to take the family.
