Recommendations for Dining in Carlisle/Harrisburg Area

We'll be visting our son at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA this weekend. Other than a few places in Carlisle (that are now booked), I'm looking for some recommendations for a great restaurant in the Carlisle/Harrisburg area for a Saturday evening dinner.

  1. I would suggest the following: Chars Bella Mundo - Harrisburg or The Left Bank in York.

    1. Also Bricco and Mangia Qui in Harrisburg.

      1. There is a new french bistro type place in Camp hill called "Confit". They opened just a few months ago. I've eaten there once so far, and really enjoyed the food/atmosphere.


        1. Also worth visiting is New Market Bistro in Camp Hill.............located beside Holy Spirit Hospital.
          Bricco, Mangia Qui & Bella Mundo are excellent recs, too.

          1. If you're willing to make the trip to Harrisburg, you will NOT be disappointed by Tavern on the Hill. I was a judge for the Pennsylvania Wine Competition in 2000 and that is where they provided dinner. Well worth the trip from Carlisle.
