I am glad you described your visit to Isabella's as "Amazing"! I feel your amazing experience came from the fact that I am surrounded by amazing people who often work from the wee hours of the morning until the late late hours of the night. Without this incredible staff I'm afraid you would have had a much different experience so... More

My fiancé had booked this place as a surprise the Friday before Valentine's Day. We felt comfortable there the moment we stepped through the doors. The staff are friendly and the food is extremely good and a very good price considering (They could easy put the prices up). I honestly believe this is the nicest place we have eaten our... More

Always excellent food and service. I got a chocolate beer that was amazing. I get the sausage and chicken orecchiette that is always fabulous and my wife gets a flank steak salad that she raves about as well. It is locally owned and operated and that's a win win here in the burg!

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts about your recent lunch at Isabella's. Operating as an independent restaurant gets tougher year after year as more chain restaurants and dining options pop up, but we never were in this business because it is easy.

A friend gave us a gift card, so we decided to try Isabella's for lunch. The atmosphere is pleasant, and the service is good. We had salads, soup, and paninis, all of which were tasty. The Fuji apples dressing was particularly good. We have been to Italy several times, so we are familiar with genuine Italian food. Isabella's was certainly... More

We had been wanting to try Isabella's for some time but had not been able to get a reservation. This place was definitely worth the wait.
