We just went there for dinner. I had the watermelon salad and bacon wrapped scallops. Excellent meal with great service. The place is noisy.

I have never been disappointed in Isabella's. It is best enjoyed for a long leisurely meal. I recommend ordering a few items to start, but keep the menu and order more as you go. Some of my favorite dishes include the calamari, shrimp with black...More
