My family and I went there with high expectations, having read all the reviews. First, the place looks clean and cozy. A little update might be due. The food was great, just skip the Italian wedding soup that had no flavor at all.

Was in Hershey with the family over thanksgiving (Friday evening) and was looking for a nice restaurant that was not a "tourist dining factory". Was very fortunate to find Fenicci's. 80 year old local restaurant with a mostly local crowd. Nice bar and dining area. Had a reservation which helped - people were waiting for tables. We were seated immediately... More

We stopped in for dinner but there was a 45 minute wait and we were hungry. We did however come back to the bar and found it to be busy but we got a few chairs and the end of bar and it was nice for talking among co-workers. Drink prices are reasonable and the bartenders were helpful. We ordered... More

If you are craving excellent Italian dishes - this is your place in Hershey! Their upside down pizza is a tasty and different twist to traditional pizza.

Pretty decent Italian place with a broad menu. We had the crab dip appetizer which had a good amount of lump meat. For the main courses, we had risotto and linguine with clams. Both were good portion and worth trying. No disappointments but the wine list was limited.

After a day of shopping at the Outlets of Hershey, it's always a blessing to eat here. The service is always top notch and the food is to die for. It's a great place to relax and have a good meal after a day on the town.

Friendly restaurant, but the food doesn't come close to the ratings it seems to get on Advisor. Aside from very fresh salads and a comforting Wedding soup, this is a back country PA take on what Italian food should be. I always try spaghetti marinara my first time at an Italian restaurant to get a "taste" of their foundation, and... More

You know, its reviews like this that i just dont understand, you say the ratings are too high but they are the ratings so obviously they are not too high and then instead of a honest critique you go ahead and put your skewed opinion in, a back roads restaurant? I am from New York and this restaurant is a... More

Always enjoy going to this restaurant after a show. Good menu. A family garden salad is included with the meal. Only challenge was that it was difficult to spoon onto our plates because the utensils were too small to put the salad on our plates offered oil and vinegar or Italian dressing from bottles but they were very messy to...

My wife and I were in town for vacation. We both love Italian, and thought we'd try them out. Sure glad we did, great place, great people, and of course the meal was excellent. I would recommend you try them

25th anniversary dinner. Booked using Open Table app, which went perfectly. However, the hostess decided, when we walked in, to seat us in the back room where there were only 3 tables for couples. Next time I book for an anniversary or special occasion, I will specify we prefer to have a quiet dinner together. We ended up between 25... More
