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.

One of our favorites, Piazza Sorrento never disappoints. The GF lasagna is terrific. Everything was great. <3

Since I had never visited Hershey, PA before, I thought that it would be nice to dine at a local, highly-rated Italian spot. First, the hostess was brash and refused to seat us elsewhere when I asked about a booth; she claimed that someone else had requested a booth with their reservation, so she couldn’t accommodate us (there seemed to be PLENTY of booths the whole time that we were there). I have back issues, so the hard wooden seats were uncomfortable. Plus, the back area was FREEZING 🥶, and I’m usually warm all the time!! The waitress was nice and tried to turn the temp up, but it only heated up for around 5 minutes. Then, the air came back on and stayed on! The Caesar salad was meh, but the Italian sampler was delicious. 😋 Unfortunately, I was too cold to enjoy my meal, so I finished quickly. Bypassed dessert, which I usually never pass up, due to the experience. Maybe would have been nicer, if we hadn’t been put in the ugly, refrigerated area.

Perfect for those who are Celiac (cannot eat wheat). Never before have I eaten at an Italian restaurant that had so many GF selections. Incredible! I had no cross contamination side effects. My wife ate from the st card menu. Both of us throughly enjoyed.

Great place. I highly recommend. From start to the end, we were greeted with kindness and respect. I’m gluten sensitive and they have a special menu, brought GF bread, and were very courteous and cautious about it. We had pizza, crab dip, and the blueberry arugula salad. All extremely delicious!

This restaurant is AMAZING! We found it online, and read some good reviews so we decided to try it. We were so glad we did! Don’t be put off it’s near a gas station, the minute you walk in you will forget it’s location. The food is so fresh and delicious, we went both days we were in Hershey. Our server Kayla was wonderful and genuinely happy to see us the next night. If your looking for freshly prepared, delicious food, then don’t miss this restaurant! Our only complaint is that it is too far from Connecticut!

The food was delicious. One of my daughters is gluten free and having such an extensive selection of GF options, from appetizer to dessert was wonderful. But we all enjoyed every bite. The hostess and our server were gracious and informative.

Food was very good but service could have been better. Our waitress brought the wrong gluten free dish to my wife after explaining specifically what she wanted. Worst yet, she didn’t immediately take responsibility for the mistake. Also brought me the wrong wine but I chose to not send that back too. She left to get pepper for my salad and never came back. Overall, she was pleasant but very forgetful and obviously not a good listener.

Fresh pasta was the highlight. Overall a good meal and experience but not as authentic as many Italian restaurants we have visited. Portions were small but price was appropriate. It’s not authentic Italian unless everyone leaves with lots of left overs.

Food was delicious . I felt very safe because my family eats gluten free and they are very cautious about cross contamination. Wait staff was very friendly . I love that as soon as you walk in they ask for if you need a gluten free menu. My kids very happy to have the gluten free raviolis, they are hard to find .

First time dining here. Just 2 of us on date. We had a lovely experience! - from our skilled and pleasant waitress Cassie (knowledgeable about food allergies) to the excellent food prep to the comfortable atmosphere! Worth the 45-minute drive from northern Lancaster County!

Server was not well trained and seemed uncomfortable at table. Other servers that we heard were excellent though, wish we had someone else. We were not told any specials and app menu is small so we just got entrees. Food was not good. Everything was under seasoned, I had salmon and “risotto”. It was just an overcooked piece of salmon and white rice, not arrborrio that is used in risotto. Would not recommend this restaurant.

Enjoyed the food immensely: The Grilled Gnocchi was tremendous; the penne al a vodka was flavorful and rich; the lobster ravioli was "scrumdeliumptious" (per my daughter); and the spicy crab linguini was spiced perfectly.

We were there just for the weekend but if we ever go back to Hershey, we will return. Thank you!

P.S. We also liked the rugs.

Our meal was absolutely superb at this restaurant! Three of us dined in and both the service and food were top notch. I throughly enjoyed my lobster ravioli meal. It was a perfect combination of taste and texture and one of the best meals I have ever tasted. My family also enjoyed their meals which was grilled gnocchi and sausage orecchiette. We also had a bruschetta appetizer which was a perfect balance of flavors without too much garlic. I can’t wait to dine here again on our next trip to Hershey!!!
