Very nice atmosphere. Great wine selection; bartender very helpful. We split a pizza - don't think it was the best choice on the menu. It wasn't bad but the pasta dishes looked fantastic.

We have been visiting Isabella's since we moved to Lynchburg 13 years ago! It is where we go with our family to celebrate special occasions, especially the end-of-school year celebrations, but others as well. Cheri and Andrew run a very efficient operation, serve excellent and creative foods, and have a fun and engaging wait staff.

Isabella's never fails to deliver a wonderful meal and relaxed evening. Their northern Italian menu (with an American twist) is varied and pleasing. The wine list is extensive and suits the cuisine perfectly. The bread is excellent! We have had many dinners, lunches, brunches and special events at Isabella's and have always enjoyed the food, people and atmosphere. Their daily... More

We tried Isabella's for dinner based on Tripadvisor reviews, and were not disappointed! The interior, a series of tastefully decorated rooms, was warm & inviting. We were greeted right away, and led to a quiet corner table. I feel as though I'm way too young to admit this, but my hearing is not so great any more, and I really... More

We ate brunch outside Sunday morning. The waffles were tasty. I had a steak sandwich with an egg on it. Be sure to get the orzo salad as a side. It sounds strange but is perfect with the meal. The waitress staff was very attentive. Often when you choose to eat outside the staff is less likely to check on... More

Travelling through Virginia, spending one night in Lynchburg on our way to DC, we had dinner at Isabella's. We had Lasagna Bolognese and Chicken Parmesan, both were delicious. The pasta in the Lasagna actually melted in your mouth and the tomato sauce was not overly sweet or acidic. Service was good, we never felt rushed and the prices were moderate.... More

Visiting Lynchburg for a long weekend, our hotel recommended Isabella's and we were not disappointed. It was easy to find, and the atmosphere was contemporary. The staff were attentive & welcoming and the food was delicious! Also enjoyed a glass of wine and splurged on dessert! I would recommend Isabella's :)

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
