Bel Paese is, hands down, the best Italian restaurant in York County. The frescos and trompe l'oiel on the walls, the painted tin ceiling, and board of family photos indicate that you have entered a gastronomic world that is at once sophisticated and friendly. The dessert display and posted specials greeting you at the entrance prime your appetite. As you peruse the menu a friendly and knowledgeable wait-person brings warm homemade bread to your table. All this is just an introduction for the delights the chef is prepared to create for you, though. Using fresh and authentic ingrediants, the chef creates dishes that can be subtle or robust, traditional or contemporary, presented beautifully so that the eye is as pleased as the palate. Make sure to finish your meal with coffee (Italian or American) and a piece of homemade tiramisu or a homemade cannoli. Looking for a REAL Italian meal (not like you get in the chain "restaurants")?
