New and excellent Italian restaurant, Trattoria al Giardino, is in its space after remodeling. I'm just writing the rest of this to satisfy the 100-character requirement.

Besides their fabulous happy hours, try their spaghetti. I love it because it is food that was cooked that day, fresh sauce & qulity parmesan cheese. Service is always good & friendly.

We went to Isabella's at 11 a.m, before the lunch rush so we were the only people in the restaurant for a while. Even so, I wouldn't say the service was great. I think the waiter kept forgetting we were there. The food was pretty good and there were more unique options than your typical Italian restaurant. I also really... More

We started with a cheese plate. A runner dropped of it off and disappeared without telling us about any of the cheeses. We were halfway through the plate when our server returned so we could ask about the plate. She had to go check and returned to report that we had goat cheese, Fontina, and Parmesean. A chunk of Parmesan... More

The place where its located is very pleasant. The food is very good and service is great. The decor is nice and modern. It has a bar and the restaurant; I have only been in the restaurant. People attend more at night that for lunch, when it looks even better with the illumination it has.

Had dinner here twice with friends. Atmosphere elegant. Quiet, relaxed. Waiter took orders course by course. Were not rushed. We had dinner reservations so no kids no noise. Food excellent.

Came here for dinner last friday night. Isabella's is a small restaurant with a very open dining room. When you walk in, especially during happy hour, the front area by the bar is packed. It can be hard to navigate your way to the restroom. They had pizza and Bruschetta in the bar area for happy hour. We had 5:30... More

Overall I think the food is average but overpriced. The wine prices are definitely way overpriced. We had asked our waiter to split the check but he sent us to the bartender to do it after our meal. The bartender was all "put" out because he had to re enter the check in their system. His unhappiness should not have... More

The food and service were good but the atmosphere is hard to hold an intimate conversation. We'll give it another try.
