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

We went on a Saturday for lunch. They only had a Dinner Menu. If you like seafood the Marie e Mano was very good and one of thier best sellers. The wine list is good with multiple choices by the glass. The atmosphere of a shopping stipulated center resturant does not match the prices.

We brought two other couples here to celebrate a birthday and everyone was very happy with their meals. That was my second time there in the same week for a birthday celebration. It isn't fancy but a very nice place with great food and large menu. I have never been disappointed.
