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

Isabella is located in downtown Tinley Park on Oak Park Ave in a Chicago style bungalow home. The food is always good and the service is very good too. The pork tenderloin, chicken diavalo, riagtoni with sausage, chicken vesuvio, are excellent main entrees. The cuccumber, tomato, red onion salad is fantastic. There are a variety of pasta, chicken and fish... More

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
