More than Mushrooms: Eating Vegetarian - A Community Blog

After years of dealing with well-meaning relatives and restaurants with no veggie-friendly options but salad and gigantic Portobello mushrooms, Rebecca is excited to share her hard-won recipes, nutrition tips and restaurant dining advice with both fellow herbivorous and omnivorous Central PAers alike.

Eating Vegetarian at Sorrento's

Written by Becky Cecala, Community blogger | Nov 4, 2012 5:42 PM

Last night I enjoyed a lovely plate of butternut squash ravioli at Piazza Sorrento in Hershey.  Butternut squash ravioli is one of my all-time favorite dishes, so I was happy to see it on the menu.  :)  Piazza Sorrento serves theirs in a brown butter and sage sauce, which was flavorful and not too heavy.  Pasta dinners come with soup or salad, and tasty dinner rolls are served with olive oil and pepper for dipping.

This is the best Italian restaurant that I've been to so far in this area.  The pasta is handmade and so are the majority of the desserts.  We had the pumpkin cheesecake last night, which had a creamy texture, good spice, and was not too sweet. The graham cracker crust was substantial and tasty.  There were at least 10 choices on the dessert tray, and they all looked delicious.

Piazza Sorrento also has a gluten-free menu; certainly impressive for an Italian restaurant.

The prices are reasonable for a pleasant sit-down dinner, and the beer and drink selection from the bar is good.  For a pleasant dinner with really good Italian food and a nice atmosphere, this is a good place to try.
