I always take my wife here for the calamari bruschetta. The calamari is cooked just right and the capers are a very nice touch. This is a fantastic place to get a sub on the go. Fresh bread and always more than I can eat.

I travel every week - which means eating alot of restaurant food. This is the BEST Italian I have had in years. The manicotti was heavenly. If you are getting take out and need to reheat the meal in a microwave ask for a different container. The takeout container is ideal for keeping the meal hot, but cannot be used... More

We were in town for the weekend and wanted a good local Italian restaurant and found this on trip advisor. Nearby family agreed it was good, so we gave it a try. Being so tired, we decided to call for take out. The gentleman that took our order was more than friendly and helpful with questions about the menu. Walking... More

Since "discovering" Bel Paese several years ago, I make sure that every trips to York, PA, includes a dinner this wonderful little Italian restaurant. We had a group of friends and family, nine total, that met for dinner on Christmas Eve. Everyone enjoyed sharing an appetizer and also loved what they ordered. And we couldn't resist getting some of the... More

I've been a fan of Bel Paese for many years. The food and staff are fantastic. Their veal is the best. Traveling as often as I do, to many foreign countries and experiencing some of the finest cuisine, I find that I can put Bel Pease at the top of the list for the York area.

Having dinned in some of the best restaurants in the country I can honestly say that Bel Paese is a true gem. The location is off the beaten track and the ambiance is almost non-existent. The tin ceiling makes it very loud when its full, but all is forgiven by the quality of the food. The whole grilled Orata is... More

Difficult to find an Italian-Sicilian restaurant with such specificities incorporated by the owner and family.

Authentic Italian restaurants are tough to find in the area, but this place is definitely IT! Their portions are generous, and the food is outstanding. I have had everything from subs to stuffed shells here, and it is all delicious. Their fried calamari and bruschetta is incredible. Can't miss it! Great staff, too.

My son was married in Wrightsville, PA on August 28, 2015 with friends and family staying at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in York, just a few miles from Bel Paese. Since I was from out-of-town, I made a trip to York several months prior to the wedding and enquired at the Marriott about a local restaurant at which I... More
