Excellent sauce, service and food. Decent prices.. Best Italian in Hershey and a must visit! However, January is the slowest month in Hershey: PLEASE UPDATE THE CARPET! The place could use a facelift.. tables/booth cushions are tired and dated. Do something to cover up or hide the "stuff" in the back near the restrooms. Carpet is the most needed update.... More

I visited my brother and we stopped for early dinner. The bread - have to tell you it was freshly baked - I could have made a meal out of it. I ordered one of the daily specials- Greek shrimp scampi. Quite good. My brother had sausage and peppers over penne pasta and he practically licked his plate. Salads that... More

We dined here while in town on business and we were glad we did. We found this place via Trip Advisor and its great reviews. We arrived an hour prior to closing and we were immediately greeted and seated by our friendly waitress. We arrived on Greek night and ordered a pita bread appetizer with Feta cheese and tomatoes and... More

Right across the street from Milton Hotel - very convenient. Seated right away (went at 5). Typical Italian - I had pasta, it was very good and their sauce is excellent. Husband had pizza, it was average. It was clean,but dated -- could use a remodel, but the food is good

Three of us ordered the spaghetti. It was excellent. Lots of ground meat and three meat balls to boot. One ordered lasagna and said it was really good too. I would not hesitate to eat there again.

Wanting for pizza for dinner and found good reviews for Dafnos on TripAdvisor. We loved it. Brick oven pizza was delicious and the prices are very reasonable. The service is excellent and our server was friendly and attentive. A great atmosphere and would definitely return.

Our annual family trip to Hershey Park includes 15 people, five of whom are children aged 2-10. Getting into a restaurant can be a task. In past years we have always done one night of bar-b-que and one night of Italian. We take advantage of the Shuttle offered by the Hershey Lodge so we try to stay relatively close to... More

Our family loves food. We can tell immediately how a restaurant will be by the calamari, all I can say is incredible!! The prices are great for what you get, portions are pure Italian. I would recommend this to everyone, very simple menu with a lot of variety!!!
