You have a gentleman who welcomes you after many invitations. Suspicious at first, we found it was a good restaurant for tourists on the Warf. Good cusine and reasonnable prices. Good site as it is facing the bay.

The food at Isabella's was fine, but the service was terrible. We went at 5:00 on a Monday night when it wasn't busy at all. The problems started when they brought out the wrong beverage for my daughter, then the wrong meal for the same...More

We were walking through Fisherman's wharf and thought Isabella's looked like a nice place. As stated in other reviews, the owner has a local cooking show and he and his executive chef had a cooking table set up outside the restaurant. They were frying up...More
