Description: Voted "Best New Restaurant" by Harrisburg Magazine in 2009, Piazza Sorrento is a modern Italian restaurant based on the "Old World" Italian recipes of the owner's family back in Italy. The Bolognese sauce they grew up on and the tradition of family is the cornerstone of the Piazza Sorrento dining experience. Dedicated to providing the finest in service, food, and wine at a fair and competitive price, Piazza Sorrento makes regional and classic Italian cuisine using premium local ingredients while keeping the history of the dish and region intact. Piazza Sorrento not only provides the best in authentic Italian cooking this side of the Atlantic, but also believes that all patrons, whether adults or children, should be welcomed like one big family - even those with certain dietary requirements. That is why Piazza Sorrento is widely known for their extensive Gluten Free menu, another reason patrons routinely drive over an hour or more to dine in relative ease and safety.

This restaurant is in a small strip next to a gas station which made me nervous - just did not look good plus central PA for Italian food......We had a party of 8 including 4 kids. We made a reservation earlier in the day and were seated on time when we arrived. The service was rather horrible.....very slow getting drink orders, then the same painful slow process ordering food....must have been there 40 minutes before we actually ate which is a bit of a buzz kill at 9pm after a long day of travel and an amusement park and did I mention four hungry kids.

When the food finally did arrive it was good, shockingly good. Our table had a few kid entrees and a mix of pasta dishes, we even liked the bread which says a lot as the men at our table are Italians from Brooklyn and bread is sacred to them. We ordered several desserts and the chocolate cake was the most popular. Another service note - I actually had to move plates to clear room for the desserts because the waiter never got around to it. Please please please train your staff better.

Whether your group is looking for pizza or a couple desiring a nice meal with full bar this is the place! We were visiting the area and someone recommended this restaurant. Your Italian taste buds will be charmed!! I especially liked the fact that the pizza area and dining area are separated. We had to be served in the bar area since we arrived without reservations but able to order from the menu and service was excellent. The food was awesome!! A must place to eat while visiting Hershey

We were visiting Hersey area and did not want to eat at a chain restaurant. Piazza Sorrento was recommend and we decided to give it a try. I had the special crab pizza and it was wonderful. This place has great gnocchi and lasagna as well. The restaurant is not overly big so reservation are recommended, we did not have reservation and they were able to fit us in. We would eat here again if in the Hersey area.
