I always make a point of returning to Isabella each time I visit Wilkes Barre. It is by far the best restaurant in the area. Went Friday evening and drinks were reduced throughout the night for their "happy hour." For the first time on this visit I tried their "small plate" offerings...all sounded great and would liked to have tried... More

I attended a dinner program here, and the food was so much better than what is usually served at these prix-fixe business dinners. Also, there were issues with the audio-visual system, and the staff and owner worked diligently to find a solution.

We stopped here while driving through the area. The food was superb, the service, not so much. Arugula salad was very very good.

I was told about this restaurant from my hotel and I am glad I went. My dinner came with a salad that had a very nice dressing. The bread was okay, nothing special. I ordered a pasta dish with crab meat and it was excellent. Plenty of crab meat, the pasta was fresh and the sauce was very flavorful. I... More

Both looked great and got two thumbs up on taste. My entrée was the white clam sauce over linguini, this is one of my favorite meals so I have... More

Looking for a non-Denny's Sunday breakfast and Trip Advisor said they had a breakfast option, well what do you know...they did. I hat great service and had a wonderful order of blueberry pancakes. They were packed with large berries, had a nice portion of whipped cream and wonderful maple ssyrup. I will definitely be back.

Isabella restaurant is a great place to take a date for a nice romantic dinner or to have a professional dinner program. I had a professional dinner program this past Monday night where I had 12-15 professional people. Ambience was great, room was clean and tables set perfect. The wait staff were really nice, friendly, and courteous. Tracy and bob,... More

I travel a great deal and have been to thousands of restaurants all over the world. My meal with friends at Isabella’s was one of the worst overall dining experiences I have ever had. To start, the waitress came over and we already had drinks and instead of giving us the specials so we could decide, she announced that she... More

This little restaurant serves very good pizzas and salads. You can first have a drink at the little bar and than have diner at the roof. Sizes of the pizza's are big( we shared one) and taste is great. Staff is very friendly.

SERVICE: good FOOD: At first bite you can tell the chef is paying attention to what is coming in the back door. The food all tasted fresh and of high quality. ALLERGY FRIENDLY: They are able to tell you all the ingredients and will alter the recipe to accommodate allergies. ATMOSPHERE: Quiet, comfortable, relaxing.
