This small but warm Italian restaurant has everything you could want for a lovely evening out. The Italian food was fantastic, and the waitress was extremely professional. The ambience was cozy with a small table in a small front room facing the small Main Street in Tinley Park. We are talking about a white table cloth service without downtown Chicago... More

This is inside an old home on Oak Park Ave (Town) of old Tinley. Charming and quaint, inside and out. Parking to side and behind (adjacent to Subway). To me the place looks nicer than actually is. It's small inside so if lots of people loud. Went w/group for work Christmas luncheon. There's a lunch menu for $10.50 w/approx. 10-12... More

Unusual menu, great atmosphere, great food! We had a nice table on the "porch" because sitting outside was not an option that day due to the chilly weather.

The owners have renovated an old (appears to be historic) house into a lovely, quaint eatery that assimilates dining in Italy, where you are eating amongst the locals in the... More

Had dinner at Isabella's last night and after we read all the reviews we were looking forward about dining here. Well, not very good; Service was just okay, not very attentive, a bit slow and was nailed for a 20% tip charge, after taxes. Certainly not a 20%er, 15% at the very most. The food; I had fettuccine al panna... More

Isabella is a very nice restaurant in the city of Tinley Park. Located in an old home it has indoor and outdoor seating. The service was very, very good with instant refills on water and wine. I chose the mixed grill which was quite good, while my wife and daughter each had a pasta dish. The cucumber, onion and tomato... More

We recently had diner with another couple at Isabella's. The service was great and the food was even better. If I had any complaint at all, it was the space. We were seated in the "porch" section and the 4 of us felt cramped especially when another party was seated right next to us in "booth" fashion. Next time we... More

Isabellas never fails to be great. Summer outside with a glass of wine and appetizer, dinner on the porch with friends, whatever it is you go there for you are pleased. The best appetizers are sausage and cabbage, shrimp. Their fish specials are cooked to perfection. Better even than the food is the wait staff. They are friendly, helpful, never... More

Went on Mother's Day and it was a disaster - took and hour to get the food and when we were first seated there were only three tables full. Waitress came by four times within the hour and said the food would be out any minute. My son and I both ordered the New York Strip Steak well done. His... More
