Very good italian

We went to Isabella on February 5th, 2016. It has been a while since I was in there, I had the cheese ravioli, minestrone soup, and a very nice sparkling wine. The soup was very light for minestrone and nicely flavored. The ravioli was excellent and the tomato cream sauce not overpowering.

Even though this is a small restaurant, Isabella prepares delicious Italian food in a cozy setting! They have a varied menu with salads, appetizers and main dishes. Their daily specials enhance the menu. Dessert is also special at Isabella's. Reasonable prices and excellent food make this our choice for Italian food !

We held my daughter's wedding shower there and the room was adorable. The food and service was good and no one rushed us. It's a local favorite!

I would recommend this quaint little restaurant. The food is yummy, the ambience is great. We love stopping here for some chicken parm. Service is good, and never really to crowded.

Been coming here since they opened and have NEVER had a bad meal. Wonderful wine selections also. Every time my daughter is in town we must have at least one meal here.

Everything seemed to come out of a can overcooked veal parmesan loaded with cheese and a disgusting sauce I threw the entire meal away

The restaurant is in a converted house. There is a front entrance and a side entrance on the south side of the building. An enclosed porch in the front is a very nice eating area in spring, summer and fall. Maybe winter, too, I haven't been there in winter. The menu is varied and simple, but delicious. I particularly like... More

I had my daughter's bridal shower here. The meal was wonderful. Great atmosphere for a smaller group. Not a cookie cutter shower for sure. Attentive staff, great meal. Have been here for dinner as well; everything was great.

Isabella's service and cuisine is consistently wonderful. Special lunch pricing; dinners reasonable with large portions. Friendly servers wait until all guests are finished eating before removing plates. Food is served hot and fresh. A favorite is the half roasted duck with cherry sauce. A varying selection of desserts are listed on a wall-mounted chalkboard; gelatto and home-made biscotti for dessert... More
