Bel Paese is near the York Galleria and located in a non- descript strip mall, but do not let that keep you from entering. The food is very good, a bit pricey for York, with a large menu to select from. Family owned and quite authentic Italian.

Bel Paese is like one of those tiny restaurants you find in every Italian town. The food is traditional and beautifully prepared and served. The wine is is adequate and the pasta cooked to perfection. Highly recommended.

This used be a good place to go. My wife and I had linguine dishes, hers was white clam and mine was lobster and shrimp in a red sauce. My lobster was under done, and hers was so salty that it was pretty much inedible. She sent it back and re-ordered veal masala instead. That dish was very bland and... More

Excellent, tasty food, and decent menu. The place can get pretty busy and sometimes your meal takes a bit more time to receive, so plan the rest of your evening accordingly. Wait staff very friendly.

Best Italian food around. It would be nice if when you ordered an entree a salad were included. I usu. get the same thing - seafood dish which is delicious. The service is excellent, the good delicious and prices are reasonable.

My wife and I enjoy going to Bel Paese for dinner and dessert. It is a small place so make reservations on busy evenings. Menu selection is great and the desserts are amazing. Tiramisu is my favorite!

We just returned from Bel Paese and our dinner salads were $6.25 extra per dinner!! Our waitress asked if we wanted a salad with our dinners and never mentioned that the price of a caesar salad was more than double the price of a house salad. When we received the bill, I asked the manager about this and she said... More

Great food and excellent service. It is a truly authentic Italian restaurant, and I would dine here again. It didn't quite earn the fifth star due to no "wow factor", and a few presentation errors. I highly recommend eating here.

We had a party of 7 for Father's Day. We have been going there a couple of times per year for the last 10 years. The waitress even remembers us. The food is prepared to order, so there is a short wait. The veal is excellent. We always go at noon on Sundays. Not crowed and it is very quiet.

It's hard to find decent Italian food in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country, but this place is by far the best I've found in 20 years of living here. It's tucked away in a tiny strip mall and you'd never expect more than a pizza shop from outside. But inside is comfy and laid out as a restaurant. The... More
