We were at Hershey Park for their Christmas in CANDY LAND experience. We wanted to dine after our day of park visitation . TRUTH BE TOLD since our hotel was in Lancaster I had wanted an old time Italian place and the one in Lancaster...is Temporarily closed. WELL what a blessing...we found. Food was excellent..service was great attentive and not hovering. We ordered things not seen on many Italian restaurant menus Eggplant napoleon Zucchini flower appetizer Osso buck main with veg and side NOT home made pappardelle. I WANTED TO SEE their repertoire. All items FAB Dessert the HERSHEY blitz. Don't miss it. Everything was truly wonderfulMore

You are the best. Next time stay with me. I have Airbnb’s above the restaurant. And yes our Parpadelle is “fresh” not homemade. But glad you liked it all. Happy holidays

Had a great date night! Spaghetti with mushroom sauce and crab cake were fabulous, drinks were amazing and Ryan took care of us. Loved the meatballs and shrimp bruschetta.

The restaurant has good food. However, service is mediocre. Not to mention the owner is arrogant. Also very immature. If you give a bad review, they will rudely respond back and has even gone so far to threaten to call your employer and report you...for what I don't know. If you want supreme italian food, piazza sorrento's a few miles away is a far better choice. Plus the husband/wife owners are extremely pleasant and go out of their way to provide you with a memorable dining experience.More

This restaurant location has been a family favorite since the late ‘50’s and it had been too many months since we had been there. So when we learned they were open for inside dining the Saturday before Christmas, my wife & I along with her...sister headed there for our favorite - Chicken Parm. Every bit as delicious and filling as always. We’ll be back soon! Thanks!!More

Pizza crust was hard. Cheese was not good nor was the sauce. Very bitter sauce. Very underwhelming pizza.

Wow so real. Your IP address is California and you only had done reviews in me and another one fighting the lockdowns. Good luck. We are still number one and you are still an anonymous loser living with mami

I was always a fan of this establishment with the fantastic food and service. In light of current affairs and blatant government overreach, the owner Phil has my utmost respect and admiration for his decision to remain open and support not only his staff, but...the restaurant industry as a whole. Integrity means doing the right thing always, even if it’s not the popular opinion. Phil has shown extreme integrity during this difficult time and he has a customer for life from me. Thanks Phil and the awesome staff at Fenicci’s!More

I just want to give a shout to a great staff and great owner. The staff that was working were very personable and were wonderful. The food was amazing as always. Loved the interaction with the owner as well. Phil stopped by our table several...times to check on everything and at the end of our visit chatted with us for a few minutes. Love love love this place. I've never been to a restaurant that the owner interacts so much with staff and customers. I would recommend this place to anyone. It is one happening place so make a reservation. THANK YOU FENICCI'S FOR A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!More

Among this crazy holiday time and shutdown, it was very refreshing and relaxing that my husband and I were able to have a little bit of normalcy and have a late night reservation to dinner when we were finished our holiday shopping. Food was excellent...as usual. Service was impeccable and Lisa, our waitress treated us like family.More
