The food was fantastic here. It is pretty reasonably priced, all homemade, fancy but not too much so... kind of a romantic type restaurant, but was good for our business travel. Good service as well... overall, I would go again if we're back in the area!

Visiting with family friends, they insisted we all go to a favorite restaurant close by to their home area. Isabella's was easy to get to, and parking ample as it is located in a small shopping center. We were a little on the late side arriving for dinner, but we were seated within about 10 minutes. There were still a... More

I have been to Isabella's before and did not enjoy it. I thought I would give it another try but it just continues to disappoint. It does have very nice decor but the atmosphere felt a little weird. None of the servers had a smile on their face the entire 2 hours that I was there. Great service but they... More

Absolutely one of the nicest restaurants to enjoy. Dress up or less casual is fine. The atmosphere is welcoming and classy. Food is outstanding, served in perfect portions. Have never put a bite in my mouth that wasn't divine at Isabella's.

This was a great dining experience. We had a delicious melon & feta salad, then linguine shrimp and bolognese pasta, and for dessert truffles and cannoli, all fantastic!! Portions are hugeeeeeeee but we used to live in England so portions seem gigantic everywhere for us. We also tried an Italian Pinot grigio which was perfect for our meal.

Isabellas is top notch restaurant with a nice variety of menu items as well as pizzas. They always have several superb specials, too. There are three things that make Isabellas better, way better than most: 1. The excellent service and staff, 2. The warm and friendly atmosphere and 3.

The food was amazing! We shared a salad and our two entrees and desserts. They make their noodles in house. I could taste the difference! The portions were generous and the price fair. Our waiter Josh was helpful, professional, and attentive to our dining needs. In addition to their regular menu they also have daily specials and desserts. We split... More

We had one of the nicest meals ever in this shopping center restaurant. Surprisingly good and fine service. Mussels (with bacon) were the best we ever had including special mussel restaurants. Basil risotto with scallops and lasagna were perfect. If you visit Lynchburg, go to this restaurant.

I couldn't agree with you more about the mussels with the local Rock Barn bacon and Virginia beer broth. I had them a few days ago and thought they were outstanding. Thanks for visiting from DC and we hope you can make it back one day! More
