I love Isabella's. It is the perfect place on a cold Chicago night to be cozy and eat wonderful homemade pastas. I have had the Osso Bucco several times and it is also terrific.. My favorite restaurant in Tinley Park.

It was not at all what I expected.Although a little pricy,and a little cramped.(small place) the food was excellent along with the service.It is charming in its environment,but rather sweet in it's own sort of homey way.

We come to Isabella in downtown Tinley Park all the time. Consistently excellent with outstanding service by Abraham who has been our waiter for about 10 years now. If you like pasta order Penne Porcini. This is pasta in a cream sauce with fresh mushrooms. Amazing. Their lamb chops are also another fave of mine. Always get their salad to... More

Isabella's is one our favorite places for a date, anniversary, or small business meal. It's intimate, hospitable, and unique. It is such a refreshing change from chain restaurants that dominate these suburbs. We have visited many times, from a Valentine's date (which they graciously accommodated with a reservation near the window) to bringing out-of-town family to bringing work associates for... More

We had driven by the restaurant for many years and decided to try it. It is a converted residence. It is nothing fancy. The food was good, but not great. We will probably not return there.

Visited Isabella's for dinner while traveling for work. This place is a true hidden gem as much for its culinary treats as well as its warm atmosphere and service. They offer many unique twists on traditional Italian dishes. I had the eggplant dish which is thin slices eggplant rolled in thin prosciutto and mozzarella, cooked and covered with a light... More
