Gluten Free in Hershey, PA

I love Hershey, PA.  We drive through it on our way to see my husband's grandmother, and we always stop at Chocolate World.  But I have a new reason for thinking Hershey is the "sweetest place on Earth": Pizza Sorrento!  Their gluten free menu is the most extensive I have ever seen, including SIX dessert options.  They have GF bread, GF sandwiches, GF pasta, GF ravioli, GF risotto, GF pizza, GF crab cakes, and the list goes on and on.

I had the GF lasagna, since that is something I never get unless I make it myself.  It was very good.  They brought me crunchy baguettes to go with it, and olive oil to dip it in.  I had a real Italian meal -- wine, pasta, and bread, for the first time in years.

When it was time for desert, I was paralyzed by the decision.  I ended up ordering two desserts, plus dictating what desert my husband was to order.  I ordered tiramisu because I have never seen a gluten free version of that before.  It was good, but it didn't have as much coffee/kahlua taste as I remember "real" tiramisu having.  It was more whipped cream and cookies.  Very very tasty whipped cream and cookies, but not really tiramasu.

I had better luck with my other choice: Homemade Panna Cotta.  It was a creamy, silky smooth, yummy vanilla custard, not too sweet, served with berries.  Wow!  Talk about perfect!

My husband "ordered" (at my insistence) the Dark Rum Chocolate Mousse.  It was incredibly rich and decadent.  Hubby and the kids loved it, though I prefer slightly less sweet desserts.

I am seriously considering another trip to Hershey, just so  can try the raviolis and the ricotta sponge cake.  Pizza Sorrento is definitely worth the trip if you are in Hershey!
