After 10pm on a weekday this town has few options. Kitchen open late and a very friendly bar filled with colorful locals. Good food and pizza too. Good selection of reasonably priced beer both on tap and in bottles.

I had dinner with 7 of my coworkers. I was disappointed in my chix risotto was like a casserole. The rice was runny with chopped chix. My associate had a stromboli that was raw inside. They did nothing. Unbelievable!

Our policy is always to replace a meal if you are unhappy or take 50% off if you would not care for anything else. I am wondering if you spoke to a manager because we certainly would have made you happy.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I would like a confirmation of the Cramer reservation for 15 people on Sun May 28 at 5:30 pm. I understand we have a semi private room (3 walls). This is a family graduation celebration so there may be comments from various people to the honoree. Will we be secluded enough that that there will not be noise interference from the main dinning area? Two other points: firstly, there is one handicapped person who uses a wheel chair. Is there a ramp to enter the building and room enough for him to maneuver to the table? Secondly, people will be arriving between 5:30 and 6:00 pm. Is it possible to use the area as a "cocktail party" for that half hour. i would like drinks to be served and space for guests to move around. We plan to be seated by 6:15 and we will bring a cake for dessert and would like ice cream to be offered before it is cut and served. There may be some lingering after dinner as gifts are opened. It is my understanding that there is no time limit for our use of the room. Please respond soon. This will be our first experience at Fenicci's, We have heard many positive comments about your restaurant and are looking forward to an enjoyable evening. Thank you, Ellen Cramer (717 526 4914)

There is very limited parking on the street in front of the restaurant. There is parking (I believe they said about 2 blocks back by a church.) You could call to make sure.
