This is my favorite place for tapas. I love the lamb chops and all the unique flavors that are combined on different plates. Things I would not think of putting together. Delicious. Always want to order more but can get a bit pricey.

Met four friends for lunch this summer. The small plates are great tastings, but not big enough for more than two to share, so plan accordingly. I've never had anything I didn't like, but none of the dishes have been outstanding. I keep going back,...More

It's been a few months since the last visit to Isabella's. There's a new menu, not as extensive but with all my favorites still included. Service was on the slow side tonight which was a bit of a surprise since the restaurant was not that...More
