This is one of my favorite restaurant. Been here many times & never had a bad meal. They always have specials & the deserts are great.

I have been going to Isabella for years and it is alway consistent . Service is good, food great. Love it in the summer and sit outside. Waiters are friendly, don't rush you if you just want to sit and chat.

Out on date night. Ordered a Caesar salad to split, undue if I didn't like the dressing or it was bad lettuce, I am thinking it was the dressing, perhaps not use to it. I will ask next time to try the dressing prior to ordering to see. Waitress brought use a house salad instead. But by then I didn't... More

If you want a guaranteed wonderful meal, go to Isabella's. This family run and owned restaurant is in Tinley Park and worth the drive. You often run into the same people here because everyone comes back. Service is wonderful. Menu selection varied but not overwhelming. Specials always creative and fun. My favorite is the shrimp appetizer that comes with creamed... More

I used Trip Advisor to find an Italian restaurant close to hotel and chose this place based on several of the reviews. We were not disappointed! From the Bruschetta with tomatoes, basil & cheeze to the dinner salads to the main courses and (groan) onto a very light Sorbetto for dessert, we were very happy campers. We could have skipped...

I've driven past the cute little house for years, but never went in. When other restaurants had a 2 hour wait on a Saturday night, we walked right in Isabella's. It was quiet enough for conversation. The wine was good, the waitress was fun, and the food was excellent. I had a crab cake (which I sample everywhere I go).... More

We were in town for the Miranda Lambert/Dierks Bentley concert and I selected Isabella's to take my daughter since she had paid for the concert tickets as a surprise birthday present to me. This restaurant was very nice and the food, service and price, were all good. We would recommend it.

Went here for a birthday celebration. The atmosphere here is very good. It's a small restaurant in a nice area to walk around. In the summer, you can walk and see some nicely decorated benches in the area. The grilled salmon, gnocchi, and spaghetti primavera were good, not great. The chicken parmesan was average, at best. We have certainly had... More

I have eaten at this restaurant many times throughout the past five years and time after time this place delivers excellent Italian food, maybe the best on the South Side of Chicago. They use no microwaves or deep fryers and all food is made to order which leads to one of the best home cooked meals you can find in... More

Quaint and the presentation is always nice. Great food and waiters always treat you well. I have some favorites and they accommodate wishes like not too much seasoning, sauce on the side, I love their soups, four cheese pizza(or special pizzas), salmon dishes, penne porcini, primavera, rigatoni sausage, linguini, weekly specials like pumpkin ravioli, and their great mouth watering desserts...
