Isabella is a good locally owned family restaurant. Solid menu to select from for everyone in the family. The atmosphere at Isabella's is one you would want to take a date to. It can be noisy when busy. Give them a try, best Italian in Lynchburg.

We had a party for ten in the back room. Restaurant was packed by the time we left--very large interior for a strip mall place--and nicely decorated. Everyone was happy with their meal except me--I had the flank steak salad--4 strips of very good flank steak, but a huge pile of lettuce--half a head--and boring. Don't order this unless they...

My Fiancée and I went out for Valentine's Day here. The waitress was friendly and the mood was peaceful with dimmed lights and soothing music with a fire stone oven in the back. I had a delicious lobster bisque soup with Italian bread, then a tender steak with garlic potatoes. For dessert was a dreamy Tiramisu imported from Milan, Italy... More
