    This place is just awesome for someone eating gluten free! They have gluten free bread, pastas, pizzas and many other options. They have several dessert options, including the amaaaaazing ricotta cake. I have always had an enjoyable experience and they are very careful with labeling and cross contamination issues.

    I ate here twice (in the take-out area) while visiting from out of town. I was with a 2 year old both times, so we elected to stay in the take-out area rather than eat in the more formal sit-down restaurant. All the food was good, and all GF items come with a paper tag on the plate stating that it is a GF choice. They have more GF options than most places. The first time I ate a pizza, and it was very good. It was a thin, crispy crust, and better than most GF pizzas, and the toppings were fresh and plentiful. The second time I ate pasta and had the GF tiramisu for dessert. All were tasty.

    Had GF bread, pasta and pizza. My daughter had the pizza which was very very good. I had a chicken parm sub and the GF bread was sensational. Had a lot of GF options for dessert as well. Very nice people.

    Wonderful old-school italian food with scrupulous attention to allergen issues. A great place for a "mixed" group like ours (2 out of 4 have celiac). So hard to find a homey italian place with an extensive gluten free menu and such delicious food. The wait staff is helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Don't be fooled by the fact that it is next to a gas station!

    There is a large gf menu. The server asks if you need a gf menu and when my meal came out there was a gf tag on the plate. Very happy with this place!

    My daughter loved her gluten free French bread slices and penne pasta. It's so rare to find an Italian place that serves gf bread when everyone else gets the regular rolls (which were delicious too). All of the food came labeled with a little paper as gluten free. The non gluten free food was delicious as well. Wish we had saved room to eat the gf desserts! Kid friendly. Highly recommend this place if you are in Hershey!

    This only the 2nd review that I have ever written. After reading all of the positive reviews, I called to see if they had gf veal parm. I was told to hold while she checked. No. I then asked if they had gf chicken parm or spaghetti and meatballs. I was again told to hold while she checked. No. Gf French fries. No. "Knowledgable staff"?? I don't think so. My wife then made me hang up the phone. We will not risk eating where the staff is so unsure. I don't know how they got positive reviews. BTW. No regular pizza place can truly be gluten free. Flower is in the air and in everything that is made there. This is fine if you don't have a severe reaction to gluten. After 2 emergency surgeries we don't take risks.

    Delicious Italian food in an environment that really "gets" celiac disease. All GF dishes come out with a paper tag on them signifying gluten free. If it doesn't have the tag, be sure to ask. They were busy the night we were there, and our salads came out with croutons and no GF tag, so we asked the waitress before eating (they were regular croutons.) The restaurant was great over all, and we will be back next time we're in Hershey.

    Finally a restaurant that understands the serious nature of Celiac disease. From our warm and friendly waitress, Bella, to the complimentary gluten rolls, to the delicious pizza crust, perfection! Too bad more restaurants don't take those menu options seriously.

    One of the best gluten free menus! Had their gf pizza for lunch and it was very good. The waitress explained that their staff are well trained on gluten free menu selections. I went back later in the evening to try one of their gluten free desserts for a treat. Impressed with how their gluten free menu selections are labeled when served at the table.

    My wife and I ate at at Piazza Sorrento on 3/30/16, if we could we would rate it 10+++ stars! Our waitress Kelsey greeted us and explained the gluten free menu thoroughly. She asked if anyone was celiac and took precaution. We enjoyed gluten free dinner rolls before the meal and it came with a seasoned oil dip. The salad was a generous portion and the soup was delicious! There were many selections of gluten free dressings. We both had the gluten free crab cakes with mashed potatoes and fresh asparagus. The crab cake was moist, tasty, and was not filled with tons of crumb. It was delicious and you would never think it was gluten free. The potatoes were flavorful and fresh! The meal came out hot. We would return again. We traveled from NJ and we were so happy to have this option when we don't have many options in NJ. Thank you to the staff and great service! Cheers!!

    Lasagna was outstanding! Bread was wonderful! They have Angry Orchard. We are making reservations for tomorrow night! Want to try the pizza too! Came back tonight. Had the veggie pizza with no cheese. It was great! Then I had the lava cake dessert which was the best dessert I've had!

    This place was the best GF meal I've had hands down!! Had the prosciutto and sage appetizer, crab dip appetizer, steak and blue cheese alfredo and sampled several of the desserts. Out of a party of six, three of us eat GF, and the other three who don't still ordered GF desserts so we could try a lot of different ones. Those are good friends, but honestly Piazza Sorento's GF is so delicious, they couldn't even tell the difference. Will visit again when I'm in Hershey!

    I got gluten free pizza takeout from here and it was amazing. The pizza box was clearly labeled gluten free, which made me feel very comfortable and safe. The pizza itself was great. They did it without cheese for me and were very careful to use marinara sauce instead of pizza sauce because of my dairy allergies. They also loaded it with the toppings I asked for, not just a sprinkling. Can't wait to go there again and sit down in the restaurant and try something new.

    This restaurant is, in short, amazing. We were visiting Hershey and found it using the Find Me GF app. I have never been to a restaurant that offered as many GF options and was as knowledgeable about Celiac and its strict requirements. Our fabulous waitress guided us on all aspects of what was available and safe, even going so far as to remind the non-GF member of our party to use his own separate oil plate for bread dipping. They offered GF bread (some of the best I've ever had) before the meal. Each item, including the salads, were marked with a small slip of paper marked "gluten-free", so I know they are taking great precautions to avoid contamination. I ordered the buffalo chicken pizza, which ended up being much too spicy for my liking, and they kindly allowed me to choose another option and removed it from our bill. Overall, my only complaint is that this restaurant is 4 hours from my home! I will definitely be returning EVERY TIME I visit the area!

    After an extremely long day of driving and many days of shooting we have been exhausted with very few celiac options. This place is a god send. I'm 7.5 months pregnant and I was able to order 3 things off the menu (there is no way I could decide!) and take them all with for later. I have not been able to eat lasagna in a restaurant in years and it was perfect!!!! If you were searching for good Italian food that is truly celiac compliant, please go here. It's been years since I have found a place so easy to navigate with such a helpful staff and goos food.

    I am allergic to 30 different foods and piazza sorrento has been AMAZING! They make me feel like royalty from the moment I walk in the door. The food is incredibly delicious! I only wish they were closer to my house, so I could eat there once a week. I am extremely sensitive to both gluten and dairy, and have never gotten sick at Piazza.

    Most amazing gf food I have ever had. I had the chicken Marsala and it was outstanding. They are extremely careful about separation of foods. The gf bread was incredible, it tasted like wheat, which I miss terribly. I recommend this restaurant highly. I will be returning quite often.

    The athmosphere was lovely but the food our maybe it was just the dish I ordered was so salty I couldn't eat it and had to send it back but then it came back just as salty and I couldn't eat it which was disappointing but the very large chef staring at me as the second dish was brought to my table was enough to convince me to just let it go. Maybe it was just what I chose to order because my friend enjoyed the food (a different non gf dish) and the place was busy. I'm sure they have good food overall ...and they were very Gluten Friendly.

    I was so happy to have so many options of gluten free pasta and other entree choices you don't see on a normally restricted gluten free menu when dining out. They clearly make it a point to cater to GF needs. I really enjoyed the GF seafood chowder, GF lasagna, and GF tiramisu for dessert. My dining companions said I looked incredibly happy all meal as I enjoyed my dinner eating foods I hadn't had in two years.

    I completely agree with all of these reviews. The servers were aware of everything that my son could or couldn't eat. They even knew about the after dinner mints being gf. He had gf bread, gf pasta and a gf meatball. He was in heaven. My only suggestion is to offer gf kid meal prices, because he was charged for an adult meal. Thankfully he was starving and ate the whole thing. Just a suggestion.
