“Excellent Meal, Fantastic vibe!”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

We celebrated a birthday with a large group, including 8 girls aged 8 - 16. This is a fantastic family restaurant and the staff was friendly and attentive. The girls were able to blow off some steam in the large grassy area in front of the restaurant while we lingered over drinks.
Our order was delayed (we didn't really notice or mind) and our waiter discounted our meal slightly. I ordered the Debs Pasta and found it to be "good to really good" but it didn't blow my hair back.
Excellent value, great staff and a premium location made for a fun night out! Highly recommended.

“Fun!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

We had a group of seven which included 3 kids (older kids). We ended up eating in an outdoor area on rocking chairs and benches around a big table with a gas heater next to us. We had a great time. Our waitress was phenomenal and went out of her way to do fun extras for our group. She noticed that two of the kids were chilly and brought them blankets! The food was good and the atmosphere was fun. I would definitely return!

“Beautiful setting with average food”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Everything about this restaurant is extraordinary except the food which is average. It is not typical Italian food but something with a modern day twist. I have never had lasagna like this, the calamari was small in portion and size, the pork dish was just plain strange and the Deb's Pasta was rather bland. Isabella's is better suited as a place for drinks and appetizers, I would return for the atmosphere and sunset views.

“Lively indoor outdoor ambiance”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Really friendly and competent waiter - serving up really tasty food - be sure to try the bruschetta! It was a truly beautiful sunset which you can see from nearly every table. Specialty drinks are delicious: The Bees Knees brought us to our knees.

“Great atmosphere!”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Casual dining - outdoor entertainment and a great bar!
Sit around the fire-pits and enjoy the music and a drink prior to having dinner (or after).
