Visiting from NYC and didn't expect much, but LOVED IT. We were greeted by the owner (Cheri?) upon arrival and given the option of a booth or a table. We took a table against the wall in the bar section. Our server was kind and knew the menu through and through. (Victoria?) I ordered the Mussels, one of the b-t-g... More

I am visiting my son for Randolph College Family Weekend and of course we wanted to take him out for a good dinner. Trip Advisor to the rescue-- I booked at Isabella's in advance and we went there tonight (note to Randolph College parents - Isabella's is only about 3 miles from campus, easy drive).

Our ladies' lunch bunch enjoyed lunch in one of the many small dining rooms Isabella offers this week. The menu had so many options. I chose the half soup of the day - basil tomato with a cream base and a half chicken salad panini for $10. It was delicious. Four of us shared the dessert sampler which the servers... More

Food and service top notch as always. I get the sausage Orecchiette and she gets the flank steak salad with that wonderful balsamic drizzle. Excellent. Can't leave without cannoli either. Awesome place!

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...
