Found this gem by chance for dinner. Salad, homemade yummy rolls and entrees were delicious. I am a fussy Italian restaurant eater and this was great. Pasta with homemade pomodoro sauce and shrimp was awesome. Cant wait to return!

Our first visit to Dafnos was a success! We originally planned to dine at another establishment however they could not accommodate us. So we decided to try Dafnos and we are happy we did. We were seated promptly and served promptly. Our waitress was great to work with and very helpful in making recommendations. Our party tried the crab stuffed... More

We picked this as our family Christmas dinner. We were not disappointed on our choice. Arriving early,4pm,we beat the evening rush. The serving sizes are quite large and rolls with a salad are included with each entree. Many in our group took home next days' lunch! We plan to return soon for another family night out.

Excellent sauce, service and food. Decent prices.. Best Italian in Hershey and a must visit! However, January is the slowest month in Hershey: PLEASE UPDATE THE CARPET! The place could use a facelift.. tables/booth cushions are tired and dated. Do something to cover up or hide the "stuff" in the back near the restrooms. Carpet is the most needed update.... More

I visited my brother and we stopped for early dinner. The bread - have to tell you it was freshly baked - I could have made a meal out of it. I ordered one of the daily specials- Greek shrimp scampi. Quite good. My brother had sausage and peppers over penne pasta and he practically licked his plate. Salads that... More

We dined here while in town on business and we were glad we did. We found this place via Trip Advisor and its great reviews. We arrived an hour prior to closing and we were immediately greeted and seated by our friendly waitress. We arrived on Greek night and ordered a pita bread appetizer with Feta cheese and tomatoes and... More

Right across the street from Milton Hotel - very convenient. Seated right away (went at 5). Typical Italian - I had pasta, it was very good and their sauce is excellent. Husband had pizza, it was average. It was clean,but dated -- could use a remodel, but the food is good

Three of us ordered the spaghetti. It was excellent. Lots of ground meat and three meat balls to boot. One ordered lasagna and said it was really good too. I would not hesitate to eat there again.
