Beautiful atmosphere, beautiful owners and the most beautiful, flavorful food in the area. I dine here with my sisters every time we meet in Lynchburg. Last weekend we ate at Isabella's on Friday night and when it came time to choose somewhere for Saturday it was Isabella's again. The food both nights was wonderful, the wine list extensive, and the... More

We were meeting with some colleagues in Lynchburg and we had dinner at Isabella's. It is in a plaza, not a stand alone restaurant, but the entry way is distinctive and inviting. The menu has familiar Italian dishes, like lasagna, but there are new and exciting ones offered too. I ordered the butternut squash fettuccini with walnuts and it was... More

It is awesome to hear that your group had a great visit to Isabella's! I too am a big fan of the Butternut Squash Pasta and look forward to adding it to our winter menu almost every year. We would love to see you the next time you are back in Lynchburg! More

Isabella's is a classy restaurant that, eventually, served very good food. The Tuscan bean soup and catfish entrée were very good. The lobster was excellent, but the tail was very small. Service was slow and our waitress was not as attentive as one would expect. Portions are not huge, but quality is very good. It is worth trying for yourself,... More

The atmosphere is elegant at affordable prices. The menu has a variety of Italian choices with excellent daily specials. The wine list is extensive. There were four diners at my table. We each ordered a different meal (seafood, chicken, pasta) and all were excellent. Isabella's buys from local farms. The food tasted fresh--especially the salads. The service was excellent with...

I absolutely love this restaurant. It has a great atmosphere, and feels very upscale. The food is delicious and they use a good amount of local ingredients. They usually have a seasonal menu. You can order whole wheat options as well. Bella chicken panini is my favorite, but I've had lots of wonderful meals here. Great service, the oil and... More

I am sorry to hear that you were seated at "table #10". While there are a few of our customers who ask to be seated at this table, we train all of our front of the house staff to not seat until it is the last available table in the restaurant. I'm sorry we missed this opportunity to give you... More
