We are New Yorkers. We're food snobs - we acknowledge that. Like most NYers we're almost proud of it. We can find any kind of food within a short drive and that's one of the things we really like about living in NY (there are drawbacks but food isn't one of them). So our expectations were not all that high... More

The ambiance in amazing in this restaurant. Menu is diverse and prices right. Service is prompt and courteous. We had a party of 6 and we were all very happy with the whole experience. A great place slightly away from downtown and colleges.

Excellent place to enjoy a meal. The service and food were great. The banana / pecan pancakes were out of this world. Our server was very friendly and funny. I highly recommend for Brunch or any meal.

There were 12 in our party and although Isabella's had several large parties the same night, we were able to make a reservation to fit our needs...3 booths together. They were so nice! What was really nice, though, was the ambiance of the place, the food and the service! Tablecloths, large tables, wide spaces, elegant décor made a delightful setting.... More

Every time my mother in law visits from Kansas, she wants to eat at Isabella's. Our meal started with warm, fresh bread dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The soup of the day was a creamy tomato with crab meat so we paired that with the fig salad. A perfect combination of rich and filling with light and fresh.... More

We eat dinner here all the time, but had overlooked brunch. We just enjoyed a wonderful meal with excellent food, bloody marys, and bellinis. And of course, the service is always top notch. Highly recommend.

From the fresh bread that you can dip in olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette to the varied menu options it is always a treat. My favorites are the Italian Table choices of Greek Pasta and Chicken Salad or the strawberry, spinach and brie salad. They offer delicious desserts, especially the sorbet. They also usually offer daily specials from the menu.... More

I eat here often and have never had a problem or been unsatisfied. The menu changes seasonally and has a good selection. Their risotto (any variety) is wonderful. Good selection of unique salads and little pizzas. Good for lunch and dinner. The dessert menu is heaven. Daily flavors of both gelato and sorbet. Don't let other's use of the term... More
