I love this restaurant!

I love coming here as a special treat. There are many choices for vegetarians. It's a bit pricey but so delicious!

I have had great pizzas and pastas here. I went once for a Sunday lunch and on Sundays they do not serve Italian food, so if you want Italian food make sure to not go on Sunday. Great place!

I have eaten at Isabella's many times over the years. It is consistently good, and they have seasonal menus, which I find appetizing. THey have specials and a variety of appetizers, salads, small and large plates, not to mention a great atmosphere.

Went to Isabella's on August 13, 2015 and everything was excellent. My friends and I went there again in October and dinner was awful! We even ordered some of the same menu items as before. All of us were very disappointed. Won't be visiting again.

My wife and I went here for a date night, and it was the best part of our whole date! The scallops are superb and the prices are actually very modest considering the food. We will be returning shortly!

Isabella's is always a good choice when in Lynchburg, Va, a city sadly lacking in better dining establishments. Isabella's has a varied menu and a fine wine list. Service is always attentive. For over 20 years it has never disappointed.

The restaurant is located in a shopping center, and does not look particularly impressive from the outside. But we found our waitstaff to be very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu items. They were willing to make some substitutions to make our meal exactly what we wanted. If we were in the area we would definitely return to Isabella's.
