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

For the price, I was disappointed. The Calamari was not breaded completely or cooked thoroughly. We sent it back and still had it on our bill. The side salad was basically lettuce and one tomato wedge. For the price, I was disappointed.

Small intimate setting--good for conversation. Food has never disappointed us from appetizers, to main course, to dessert. Have been visiting this restaurant for special occasions for probably over 8 years now. Would certainly recommend it.

Great Italian cuisine for a local restaurant. Located in the middle of downtown Tinley, convenient to locals. Dined here a couple of times and each visit for a great experience. Definitely try it out.
