This is a favorite lunch and dinner location for me and friends. If you are gluten free this is the place for you as they have a separate extensive gluten free menu. Food and service is always consistently good.

We arrived at 7pm on Saturday night after traveling most of the day. The restaurant was crowded and a table would not be available for an hour. The hostess did suggest getting takeout pizza and we would be able to eat in the lounge area. The takeout employees were busy but took our order for appetizers, pizza and drinks. Pasta... More

For my birthday I checked the reviews on yelp and trip advisor and this place came out high. I made a reservation for six at 6:45 on a Thursday. It was pretty busy. Food took a bit to come out but service was great. They brought out the kids food first. Waiter was very attentive. It's beside a gas station... More

This is a nice place with good food and friendly staff. Everything is always prepared nicely with overly generous proportions. They have a gluten-free menu and even make suggestions for wine pairings which is a nice touch. Salads, soups, bread and desserts are all fresh and good.

We stopped in last minute late one Friday. We were created promptly and had wonderful service from Robin. She was knowledgeable about the menu and clearly loved her job. The food was great and we went back the next night with our parents!

They have a very extensive gluten free menu here including subs, pizza, dinners and desserts. I plan to try the dinners and desserts, but I'm hooked on their subs! I get mine with their garlic mayo and Pete's sauce. So good. $10.00 because it is gf, but I it is large and I have it for two meals. They are... More

Piazza Sorrento has excellent pizza for the price. In fact, the pizza slices are rather large, so I'd only recommend two slices. Their service is fairly quick. I'd definitely recommend coming here for pizza.

So I made reservations prior to taking my wife to a show at the Hershey Theater and based on the reviews I expected a super meal. I do want to stress that our server was fantastic! The appetizers were fantastic but our meals feel a bit short. I ordered a special, butternut squash ravioli in a cream sauce and the... More

Overpriced dinner. Ordered Pasta Primavera: $25.00 for a bowl of plain pasta mixed with oiled veggies. No sauce, no taste, no flavor... probably home-made pasta and organic veggies, but who cares if it's hard to swallow? Manager came in and asked if we liked the dish. We told her we didn't like it. Her response was: "really? I love it!... More

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.
