Great Italian food

We had a lovely meal at isabella's. The osso bucco was great, and the hosts were friendly with prompt service. We enjoyed a good meal out, and will return.

We had dinner here on Easter Sunday night. John is a great host and we loved the food. The hustle and bustle of the restaurant and the kitchen made the experience all the better. The atmosphere was just right for the type of food and company. Generous servings and lots to choose from. Will go back again.

Right, there are distinct pros and cons here. Pros first. The food is great. Rustic, but great. I loved my Osso Bucco. My companions loved their dishes too: variously chicken parmigiana, creamy garlic prawns and Isabella special pasta. My osso bucco was the best I've ever tasted anywhere. Serious flavour and just so moorish. A great hearty dish. Another big... More

Given the rave reviews we were disappointed with this restaurant. Positives: a good range of pasta dishes, huge servings (if that’s what you think constitutes value), BYO and no corkage charge. The negatives: tired uninviting décor, no table cloths, paper napkins, entrée prices which match the best Sydney restaurants, a very small choice of non-pasta mains also highly priced ($35),...

This is our fourth meal here when staying in Mudgee. Friendly, efficient service from the owner. Very good food at reasonable prices and byo makes it a great deal. I had a delicious risotto special and the garlic bread is fantastic.

The food was plentiful, and although a bit expensive, we all had enough for the next night's dinner so it worked out well. I'd go back.

Found this restaurant via Trip Advisor. Great little restaurant. Great food and service. Be advised it is BYO only. Bring your Mudgee wine and enjoy.

Great choice from the specials board. We enjoyed lamb cutlets with pancetta and mozarella. A large serve and a mountain of mash. We started with octupus in tomato sauce- very tender. Bring your appetite. Friendly service and BYO.
