This was our first time in the dining room. We usually order out subs but wanted a change. The artichoke appetizer was delicious, the fusilli with spinach was fantastic and the fresh desserts were mouth watering. The waitress was a delight. We will definitely return.

My wife and I went to Bel Paese Italian restaurant in York, Pa for Valentine's dinner. She ordered Fettucine Alfredo with shrimp and scallops and I ordered Chicken rigatoni. The pasta was OK, but you needed a magnifying glass to find the shrimp & scallops and the chicken! I ordered a $24 bottle of Ruffino chianti and they charged me... More

I have been looking for good Eggplant Parmesan so we tried this place. We got there early to beat the crowd since it is known as a small place. There was only one other couple there. The next couple that came in were a little on the heavy side and the lady doing the seating put them in a dark... More

Four of us ate here on a Saturday night about 7:00. Most other restaurants around had an hour or more wait, but we got the last table at Bel Paese immediately ... good luck! All four of us rated the bread at this place the best we've had at an Italian place ... they brought us 3 large loaves as... More

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.
