we had their pizza for a big group and everyone was very pleased with their "upside down" pizza. Even the little kids liked it.

This is a perfect example of a restaurant that used to be fantastic and is now just it was once better. The food has gone downhill, the service has gone downhill significantly, and no one seems to care. While you can get a decent meal...More

My husband and I visited Hershey in June and chose this restaurant because it was Italian. We both had lasagna! I have never had a sauce as good as this one! So delicious!! Nice atmosphere, too!

We ordered Chicken parm this visit and we were not very pleased with length of time to receive the food and it was not as good this time as I had remembered.

Questions & Answers
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)

As the owner you are correct we are not ADA since we are closer to 100 years old. However we do not "cram and rush" we are very busy but try to accommodate. Our normal dining for a large group on busy nights is 2-21/2 hours... More

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.
