“GREAT - would go back!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We had a great meal here. Ordered 2 appies (bruschetta & med dip) and pastas (Ravioli & canneloni - both came with salad). It was a huge amount of food for a good price - we had leftovers. Also, they offered my 1 year old penne and bread and then when we got the receipt we found out they didn't charge us at all for it, which was nice. Don't know our server's name but she was skinny with long (really) blond hair - super nice and friendly!!! Will def go back!

“Mixed experience”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Read the tripadvisor reviews prior to heading down to Lake Country for an impromptu dinner. First impressions were good - small, homey atmosphere - good smells from the kitchen. Nice caesar salad and bread (bread offered late). Service spotty but friendly when it happened. Chose the ravioli - which had a substitution of portabello mushrooms instead of asparagus as per the menu. Unfortunately became quite evident something wrong with order when 2 (possibly 3) other tables who came later than us received their food first and by then - we'd been there about an hour and a half. Waiter confirmed problem with order and implored us to wait - he'd comp it, ours would be next. We were ready to just leave anyway but decided to wait. After about 20 minutes more - meal came - sauce was lovely but ravioli was very heavy and doughy - not worth the wait - barely ate any of it. We'd perhaps try them again - understand things can happen but communication with kitchen in such a small place should clearly be better and service much more attentive - not asked for sometime if would like more wine or water etc - despite being at tables right adjacent near us.

“Authentic Italian food”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Delicious food, great service, small, intimate, and cozy restaurant. I recommend reservations if you want to eat here in the evening as this is a busy little local restaurant. Generous servings and reasonable prices. We've enjoyed the Linguine Neptuno or the Spaghetti Mediterraneo with the shrimp add-on. Entrees are served with a house salad with a very good house dressing. We always eat here at least once when we are staying in Lake Country. Haven't made it past their pasta menu, but there are lots of other tasty sounding options if you're not into pasta.

“Great food, great service, great value!”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

This was the second time going to L'Isola Bella and once again we enjoyed it!
It is a small restaurant, and the atmosphere is lovely. The prices are quite reasonable for the amount you get. The meals all come with salad and their house dressing is delicious!
We highly recommend this quaint little place to anyone.
