Pizza here is a standout and the best in Baltimore's Little Italy neighborhood. That means going here has local flavor/character. Isabella's uses fresh toppings that beat most pizza joints hands down. Tasty well-charred crust also separates this place from conventional oven pizza restaurants. Everything here...More

Amazing pizza! Stopped in after a trip to the zoo. Waited about 10 minutes and my delicious lunch was ready. Free parking right out front. Very friendly staff. Will definitely be back!

Great lunch spot for a quick bite. Meatball and chicken parm subs are great. Fresh caprese salad, too. Quick service. A few seats inside or benches in the neighborhood.

In the heart of Charm City's Little Italy we found some of the best pizza we've ever had. Will definitely be adding this to our must visit again list! The authentic bocce courts out back made it even better.

Ran across this place and actually ate there twice in one day. Food is great and reasonable. There is limited seating but don't let that stop you. In warm weather you can sit outside to take it to go. Definitely want to come back here.
