The restaurant environment, decor, and ambience very nice. The treatment by hostesses very good as compared to the Mill restaurant in Hershey. Our waiter was very good and personable. We really liked the pretzel appetizer. My she crab soup was too salty. My burger was average. Son said his pork was dry. Husband's filet was very good. Dessert was good. I would rate the entire experience 3.75 and rounded it up to a 4. We spent about $180 with tip.

Beautiful atmosphere. Nice sized bar area. Excellent service. Took one star due to my "crispy" skin pan seared salmon being under cooked. The veggie side while delicious was skimpy. There is a charge for a bread basket.

I had lunch here one day while visiting Hershey. Hunter was my server, he was very attentive and polite. I had the onion broth, and lobster Cobb salad. delicious! The real stunner was the chocolate martini. Get it, you won’t regret it :) Also definitely make reservations!!

Circa-1935 Italian eatery & bar is a casual spot for pizzas & pastas, plus a family-style menu.
Our friends introduced us to this place. Right on the main thoroughfare in Hershey. First issue there is no dedicated parking, so if it is busy good lick finding some parking on the street or nearby parking lot. Otherwise the rest of the night went nicely. The server we had was very nice and pleasant. She was attentive as she was able to be as it was busy and I, frankly, only saw 2 or 3 servers for the entire place. Not sure if that is normal for them or not. But as far as food is concerned, the food was good, but nothing special, different or memorable for us. It was tasty and we enjoyed it. I would probably go back here again if I was in the area.

I sat in the lounge and ordered a House Stramboli for a late night dinner. The service was friendly. The environment was very conversational with a mix of music and even some folks occasionally singing along. The dining room is a separate area and looks well-appointed. The House Stromboli was easily enough for 2 or 3 adults to share. The cheese in the Stromboli was perfectly melted and the bread was toasted just enough to give it a crisp outside with a soft inside. Scrumptious dinner!

This place is absolutely fantastic on all counts. Picture this, Hershey, 10 pm, 4 hungry people, everything closed or closing, its raining and to top it off it's the BFF's birthday🙈 to say we were hungry and desperate is an understatement. We missed our reservation elsewhere as we kept getting lost. But man when they say God works things out He truly does. This place was MUCH better than our original reservation. From the moment we walked in, they were warm, friendly and attentive. Honesrlt it felt like going to glam grandma's house for dinner. The food was phenomenal!! Seriously, the birthday girl has never been a fan of Italian food, but Fenicci's converted her. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, the service and our waitress was amazing. The kitchen was very accommodating (by the time we placed our order, they had switched to the late night menu, but they graciously allowed our selections). We all wish thay we lived closer so that we could go back there for dinner ever so often. This is a must when in Hershey!!

This is a gem of a restaurant and bar. We had an absolute blast having dinner and drinks celebrating a special occasion. Our bartender Sarah was dynamite. She was on top of everything, she was such a pleasure to talk to and get to know, and she made our experience perfect from start to finish. We met the owner as well. He was very interested in the customers' experiences, and was an absolute pleasure for the short conversation we had with him. The arancini are phenomenal, but honestly we didn't have a single bad thing on the menu. And we ordered a lot! Obsessed with this place. We will be back during our next trip to Hershey! Thanks for making our night something to remember forever!

Great food and service. They are very busy. We sat at the bar to eat. The bar staff was fun, the lasagna and salad were fantastic.

Counter-serve chain dishing up Southwestern staples from burritos to nachos in lively environs.
There are Moe's outside of Hersheypark so there's really no reason to waste your time and money on one inside the park. Their food isn't even made as well inside the park and the line is always ridiculously long. My son got the nachos. They were mediocre at best.

Got the burrito bowl with steak. Very tasty. Speed of service seems to be an issue but the food was very good.

I went here but did not order, my family members did. They weren't moving slow like other reviews say but the floor is a state. I stepped in a giant puddle in line and my feet stuck to the floor. Straws and napkins everywhere. Counters messy. Food was edible.

Literally 100 people in line, 3 people making food and register while at least 20 workers are standing around pretending to be busy. Worst management I've ever encountered, it's Mexican, it shouldn't take 45 mins to complete 10 customers orders during dinner time. Will never be back. P.s. Let your workers know spraying chemicals around food is against the rules of food service. 🤢

This is sort of Moe's-lite - they don't have quesadillas or stacks, and they don't have all the toppings, but there's still a good amount of options and it's the same taste as a regular Moe's. The people working were friendly enough and the line moved relatively fast.

Pasta, pizza & Italian entrees served in an airy, elegant dining room with colorful chandeliers.
Absolutely great location with some amazing views. Food was excellent, ordered the rigatoni Bolognese dish and they nailed it. Service was quick, with regular check ins, and ensured we had everything we needed. Will 100% be back when in town again.

We had a wonderful experience at Trevi 5… our waitress was a delight! She was there when needed and kept things moving at a very relaxing pace! Our appetizers were delicious “She Crab Soup and Brushetta, bit wonderfully served and tasty! The cocktails are to rave about… a nice wine list , and the dinner … delicious and well served! Love this restaurant. And love the Hotel Hershey!

I recently dined at Trevi 5 and it was an outstanding experience. The service was excellent, with attentive staff providing great recommendations. The food was absolutely delicious, from the perfectly cooked pasta to the flavorful sauces. The ambiance was enchanting, creating a memorable dining experience. I highly recommend Trevi 5 for a remarkable culinary journey.

Elegant, circular dining space with warm decor features modern American fare & inventive cocktails.
The servers were very polite and customer service was on point. Went to the circular for dinner and breakfast. Dinner was great! Cocktails were good, the mains is where its at, the duck is simply amazing! Even without the glaze, it is delicious! I would not recommend their desserts though as they are just way too sweet. Felt like I was going to get diabetes with all the sugar. Breakfast is buffet style and there are a lot of options from sweet to savory. They also have an omelette station. I just wished they had smoke salmon to go with the bagels and cream cheese and serve their lattes in an actual coffee mug rather than a paper cup. The honey ham is a must try, very yummy!

We have been to this restaurant several times and they never disappoint. Everything in this restaurant is amazing. Our server Nate did an amazing job making our celebration special. Highly recommend and will return again.

Amazing food, amazing service, amazing atmosphere. I brought my wife here for her birthday and I must admit the food is extraordinary. Our service felt special, and very attentive. The halibut was exquisite, and the filet to perfection. Yes the portions are on the small side, but it leaves the perfect amount of room for a light dessert!

Always a great experience at the circular. Exceptional service, atmosphere, and food. Will certainly be back.

We came here for a birthday pre-celebration while we were touring the Gettysburg/Harrisburg/Lancaster area in Pennsylvania. Since we didn't have reservation and so we were seated on the side of the room and so couldn't enjoy the good view of the garden that this restaurant is famous for. My salmon was so good that I think it's the best I've ever tasted. The lamb was just OK. We got complimentary chocolate dipped strawberries for our birthday. And at the end more complimentary chocolate said to be from their founder. And kudos to the staff there as I left my sun glasses there and they took it to the hotel front desk. Later when we went back to the restaurant, they sent it over from the front desk to the restaurant to give it back to me. So nice of them.

Rustic eatery set in a historic mill serving farm-fresh local fare, cocktails & weekend brunch.
This is such a cool place. 3 stories of dining and an outside covered dining area with a cozy fireplace and bar. I love the menu. Small plate options, brunch selections, and salads. Had brunch here today. The pumpkin ricotta donut holes were so soft and delicious. The breakfast sandwhich and home fries were so good. Highly recommend!!

The Mill in Hershey is one of our favorite restaurants! The atmosphere is unique, the staff and service are great and the food is out of this world! This was our first time trying the central Pa board and it was amazing! We’ll definitely be back!

The Mill is always a great spot when in Hershey. We got the brisket flatbread, burger, and a lasagna that was on special. Great food. The brisket flat bread was really well balanced and the horseradish sauce on top was phenomenal. The lasagna was meaty and the sauce was sweet. The burger was perfectly cooked and the fries were very high quality. Will definitely be back

Excellent choice for supper! MAKE A RESERVATION, if not than you have to eat at the bar (which wasn't bad). The bar was very large and had plenty of space for our plates and drinks. The menu is limited in my opinion, but they are willing to amend a dish which was amazing. Service was great, LOVE the drink menu. All drinks had fresh ingredients, no additives to give the flavor (blueberry, rosemary, mint, etc.). Food came out fairly quick and was fresh. We ate downstairs and it was really neat seeing the structure of the old mill. Renovations to turn it into a restaurant were amazingly done. This was the perfect stop before going to a Hershey Bears game. The reason for 4 stars is because a little pricy and the limited menu - it would be difficult to bring a family or to meet up with friends.

My wife and I visited shortly after their 3 p.m. Sunday opening the restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating. Since this was a warm fall day the covered outdoor seating was perfect. The service person, Kaede, was friendly and helpful. She had great suggestions for my wife who took her up on them. My wife found the orange mule cocktail to be excellent. She also made short work of the suggested seared scallops. I thought she was going to lick the plate clean. My Mill Burger was juicy and perfectly done. The french fries were good but a bit salty for my taste. The men's restroom was clean. Everything was touchless. We both enjoyed our lunch. My wife expressed that she'd like to come back when we are at Hershey.

Airy bistro space with a patio for an eclectic menu of wraps, pastas, seafood & chocolate martinis.
We have been here twice and have had amazing experiences both times! It was busy and we waited about 35 minutes to get a seat, but the service and quality of food was still spectacular considering how crazy busy they were!! There are a lot of unique food items and a few items that are inspired by chocolate (I got the short ribs tacos, which were infused with chocolate, and they were delicious). But everything we got here was very good and it came out so quickly!, considering they were so busy! And the service was friendly and efficient. Couldn't have had a better waiter experience! And don't leave without getting the peanut butter pie! - it's so delicious and smooth, and totally worth it. My husband isn't a big fan of peanut butter dishes, but he loved it as well.
5 / 5
We sat at the bar, which has a nice view of the main road through the large windows that surround that part of the restaurant. They have a nice spin on an Old Fashioned and a Manhattan that's worth a try. We tried the south west wrap and the chicken tacos. Both we very good, but I preferred the wrap. There was a lot of flavor and a healthy portion.

A must go! One of the best meals in Central PA! Must make reservations especially during weekends! Service was great and I appreciated that staff allowed me to charge my phone! The pics speak for themselves! The corn chowder and roasted peppers soups are out of this world but so are the main courses! The shrimp and the chicken as well as the seafood! This was a Saturday night dinner and we were still able to find parking on a side street! A black kitty added to the fun of the evening when she jumped into our car and refused to leave! Cats know best! Lol So glad my out of town friends enjoyed this culinary experience! Thank you!

The ambiance is great. Casual but very nice. Nice outdoor eating area as well. Our waitress was very nice as well. We had high expectations for the food based on the reviews. Unfortunately, the food wasn't great. Just ok. The mojito that I ordered wasn't great either. With all of the choices in that area, we probably wouldn't go back.

Was meeting cousins here for dinner as we were all going to the RV show in Hershey the next day. Read through reviews and settled for this spot. I am glad we did. The place was clean, the service was great and the food was fresh and delicious. We also were able to spend some time talking and catching up and we did not get rushed out after our meal was over. A couple of us had a portobello salad and another had the burger and fries. Everyone was quite satisfied with the meal. And they had a great selection of drinks and desserts (though we passed). The menu was pretty extensive and the prices were reasonable. Great choice for a casual meal!
