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.

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.

While visiting Hershey we wanted someplace different to eat at and I do like Italian food. Someone in one of the stores we visited recommended Dafnos and it was a good recommendation. Nothing real fancy but the food was good as was the service from the friendly staff.

I found this restaurant doing research since we were in Hershey overnight. It was less than 2 miles form the Hilton Garden Inn where we stayed. We spent the day in Hershey Park and I wanted to eat outside of the park. I'm glad I found this place because it was worth it.The food was really good. We had salads... More
