The food is excellently prepared and service is great. Definitely a place to return to many times. The pasta is wonderful, and alcoholic drinks are delightful.

Isabellas is a quiet, and subdued Italian restaurant where all the classics are served. I've visited them several times and with the exception of once, the experience was sublime. On the one less-tan-sublime occasion, disputes between the staff boiled over into the dining room and one particularly annoying person was on the front desk. However, it seems those early problems...

I made a reservation several days ahead for 10 people and asked for a specific room. By the time of the reservation, two people became ill so they and their spouses (4 people total) were unable to attend. When the six of us arrived, we explained why we were short four people and offered to move to a smaller table,... More

Our 30th anniversary and we were too tired to drive far from where we are staying. At our host's recommendation, we went to Isabella's. We were not disappointed. We both got the ribeye and couldn't finish it, the portions were huge. Server was great. Perfect place for a special meal!

If you are hungry for true Italian cuisine , this is not the restaurant for you. They have a variety of American dishes that is nicely prepared. You probably can find them at most restaurants . Very pricey!

I made reservations for a weekday evening meal to entertain out-of-town family. This was my first visit to this store-front restaurant. The 5 of us were seated promptly at the appointed time. I ordered the Lasagna Bolognese and found it very flavorful. There was not an overabundance of canned Marinara sauce which I find used too heavily at some restaurants.... More

On our annual visit from Australia we wanted to arrange a special meal with Blacksburg family members. A search on the internet threw up a lot of choices, but Isabella's sounded the most interesting, so we were already excited after a two hour drive to pull up to the mall based restaurant. Being half an hour early for our reservation... More

We moved back to Lynchburg after 8 yrs away in another state. I remember Isabella's being a top notch place to go. There used real linens on the tables ,the servers were always so attentive serving you warm bread and oil and vinegar and filling water glasses and your wine glasses as well . You could also hear and enjoy... More
