We stopped in for a late dinner of tapas. Our server was very attentive. We LOVED the the seafood paella. OMG! The pork belly sliders good, flavorful. The tomato and mozzarella, not so much. We will return!

I love Isabellas. Their tapas are delicious, unique, and always beautifully presented. I would say they are just as good as the various tapas I had in Spain. They are small and expensive - $8 for 3 fried asparagus - so I only go for...More
