Food is outstanding especially the special veal dishes. Wine list is decent, service was not great as the restaurant was busy

We dined there once. The food was ok, at best, but the service wasn't that good and the chef was very inflexible with any changes.

Haven eating at this restaurant for several years. we mainly get take out of Pizza and Subs and they're always wonderful. The pasta dishes are rather expensive and small for the price in my opinion. Good quality of the pasta dishes are definitely better than average but I'm not sure it warrants the high pricing. This staff is so-so. Some... More

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!

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.
