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

Thank you @squitty1 for sharing your thoughts about Isabella's. We are happy to hear of your consistent positive experiences and hope to have you back soon. There is no place I would rather own a restaurant than in this little "strip mall" in Boonsboro. More

Food: Before the meal, you always get warm rosemary white bread and whole grain bread. With a bit of olive oil and good quality balsamic, this is heaven. I had the special today, which was kale and potato soup (with carrots and celery) and a bbq chicken sandwich panini with melted cheese. The bbq sauce was made in-house and was... More

I have visited this place several times over the years. The atmosphere is good but the food is average. They give a good presentation but is very skimpy on portions for the prices they charge.

We've eaten many great meals at Isabella's, from their takes on traditional Italian dishes to some excellent specialty dishes. Everything is always just right - great menu options, excellent menu of well-chosen wines, comfortably chic atmosphere, and owners that really care about their customers and their community. Personally, I could eat the Duck Breast Sous Vide every night!
