The restaurant is set in an old bank building. In fact, in the bar, you'll see the old vault! Beautiful surroundings and great service. They are always accommodating with my meal. The servings are generous and even after traveling through Italy, they have the BEST bruscetta I've ever had!

Isabella is an unexpected surprise for such a small town. The restaurant is a beautifully restored bank, circa 1930, and the staff is warm, very accommodating, and provides excellent service. The hostess was extremely attentive to my elderly parents, and our excellent waitress Michelle quickly provided out cocktails and appetizers (by the way, the bartender makes a perfect vodka Gimlet...no...

I ate at Isabella's for the first time on a Wednesday evening with a friend. The atmosphere was great and the staff was very friendly. Wednesday nights they offer a special of two dinner entrees for $25.99 and I feel we got more than what we paid for. The parmesan crusted tilipa was excellent and the cosmos themselves are worth...

The balsamic dressing was like pure vineger. The crab was full of shell. The steak was cooked fine, but lacked flavor. The pasta sauce was more like a soup and taste like ragu. We were the only people in the place, and my drink was empty for a while. This place looks nice, but the food is just bad. I... More

This is very easily the best restaurant in Selinsgrove. it is in an old bank and the vault it used for the bar area very cool! The Italian food is outstanding, we have had seafood on several occasions which is also very good. It is a bit pricy but worth it. Nice place for a special evenings.

Stopped in for a late lunch around 3pm. Said they were not open for lunch but welcomed us for an early dinner. (they open at 4pm). Ended up having a wonderful dinner. Wide range of dishes with a focus on Italian. Table clothes and covered seats add to an elegant atmosphere, but pricing is fair and the food was excellent.... More

Offered rice pasta for GF option. Great! Then they bring it out with breaded eggplant mixed in. Fail. Returned for seafood meal. Cracked tooth on shell in the plate of pasta. Sauces are thin but veggies are well prepared. Slow service even on week nights.Beauty is skin deep here.

This is an old bank, now an italian restaurant. The food was excellent, service was fast and very friendly, and the price very reasonable. Entree with salad and two rounds of drinks from the bar, cost just over $30 per person. (Although the service was very good, the frenetic way they and the very hard working manager did have a...

This restaurant is in an old bank building & inside they have kept original details of the old bank, including the old fashion teller windows they made into a small bar. Just looking around you see all sorts of neat things from history, including an old fashion carriage. It is an elegant looking place, yet, you can certainly dress casual.... More
