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.

I asked for my soup to be really hot, the waiter offered to put hot WATER in my soup, I ordered the chowder (cream base)I can definitely tell you this was not a chowder soup. Our meal was barely warm. No offer of another glass of wine, witch I would have ordered. Our table number was G1.
I don’t believe we will be returning. We have eaten at the restaurant several times, but this was absolutely the worst.

We're always pleased with our dining experience. One of us is gluten free and there is never the fear of getting glutened.

The food was excellent as always, but the service was barely average. The server did not offer a tasting from the wine bottle and instead just poured the glasses. We had to request bread which is normally served. We don’t know if the restaurant still includes a small salad with an entree. We didn’t get one but didn’t ask about it.

I’m gluten-free, so Piazza Sorrento is a wonderful experience every time. Pete’s Penne, GF, is sooo good! Calamari for the rest of my party was perfectly prepared, as were their entrees. Love supporting this restaurant- people, you are safe to eat here!

I love Piazza! Most people don’t know about this little gem and being Italian with family from Brooklyn, it’s hard to find good Italian food! They are on the money every single time and with every single dish.

Sorrentos did a beautiful job with everything: delicious, hot, fresh food, very friendly and warm, and efficient service, and an overall uplifting experience. With all the challenges facing restaurants during Covid, kudos to Sorrentos for doing this so well.

My husband and I went here for dinner last night. He got the veal piccata and I got the arugula salad with the pear and pecorino w shrimp. We also had the bruschetta for an appetizer.

The food was outstanding. So much that we brought our daughter back tonight for dinner. She had the chicken piccata and my husband had his veal again and I had the arugula salad again. We had the prosciutto crostini for the first time. It was amazing. Overall, the dinner and service was Outstanding.

I highly recommend this restaurant. If I wasn’t leaving this Sunday and I didn’t live 3 hours away I would definitely visit here often.

My hats off to Manny, the chef for making our anniversary meal extremely enjoyable.

Server tried her best to keep up with the volume of customers, but she was overloaded. We sat and waited for our food while watching others who arrived far after us on their dessert course. No acknowledgement made to the delay. Food, when it arrived, was good but not worth the wait. Portion sizes are inconsistent: My veal parm was huge, yet husband's chicken piccatta was small in comparison. Any restaurant can have a bad night, but how the situation is handled can make all the difference. We felt our business didn't matter to them on what was a very special occasion for us.

The food was outstanding ... as well as the drinks. We both had a variety of the Martinis. We also both enjoyed the Caprese Salad, swell as the Fried Cheese ravioli as Appetizer. My wife had the delicious Chicken Picatta (awesome Risotto); while I had the Penne Vodka with Chicken. BUT! Our server, Cassidie was what made the night the most enjoyable. She was attentive, friendly and just such a great person all around. Thanks for being the final stop for dinner on our mini-honeymoon.

Good find in an area littered with Chain restaurants. Cozy atmosphere, even though it is in a strip "mall" with a Gas Station /Convenience Store. Portions were ample and food was extremely flavorful. Prices very reasonable for the quality and portion size. Service was professional and courteous. Will definitely look to go back if in the area for Hershey.

Piazza Sorrento offers diners a great menu with many types of Italian food. My mother particularly liked this restaurant because it featured an extensive gluten-free menu prepared in a separate kitchen to avoid cross contamination. She truly loved the fact that she could have delicious ravioli without worrying about any type of ill effects from gluten. I really liked my chicken with penne pasta and enjoyed a very good cannoli for dessert. Overall it was a great experience for both of us.
