    Horrible experience. First the place is dingy and dirty. The gluten free bread is sliced Udi 'a white bread which was cold . A shrimp pasta dish non -gluten free for lunch portion was $18 and had baby canned shrimp!! Absolutely awful. Don't go here! Update - it's closed

    Ate here 2 times. First time I had the gnocchi which was really good! The second time I had pasta in garlic and oil sauce with zucchini it wasn't as good. The calamari however was delicious! The waitress wasn't really aware of what gluten free was but the owners were really helpful.

    Come here for the food and staff, not the decor! I had the gf shrimp scampi over fettucini. It was delicious - simple and fresh. My husband and I shared an antipasti of sun-dried tomatoes, roasted peppers, marinated mushrooms, olives, marinated artichoke hearts and fresh, milky mozzarella. Yum. We were less impressed with the desserts (which were passable, just not as delicious as our meals), but it was still nice to have a few gf dessert options for myself. We had been looking for a good, neighborhood-y place with gf options for me, and Bel Paese is it. The staff were wonderful - friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. It's BYOB, and with two entrees, a shared appetizer, two desserts and two coffees, our bill was about $80, so it's not exactly cheap, but we enjoyed it. We will be back!

    Excellent gluten free menu prepared by knowledgeable staff. Gluten free bread, breadcrumbs, pasta, etc... Even a $10 to go menu that includes breaded Gf chicken parm, side Gf pasta, side Gf veggies and a salad...can't be beat! Just don't let it sit too long or you will steam the crispy goodness away!
