“Super flavorful, reasonably priced, eclectic atmosphere”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

If you've never tried Peruvian, dive in at Isabella's. Extensive fish menu and lots of other choices too. Lomo Saltado, classic steak strips with onions and tomatoes is a great start. Ceviche really well done. Service is pleasant and attentive. Fun atmosphere with bright colors and big screen TV for watching soccer.

“Enjoy Peruvian cuisine without jet lag”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

After a vacation in Peru I set out to find the same coquere as I enjoyed there. To my surprise I discovered Isabella's. Staff if friendly and food is so authentic even down to the serving of Peruvian Corn Nuts and the fabulous Green Chili sauce. Try the Cebiche or Loma Saltado. Better yet keep going back and trying something new. Not far from Santana Row on Winchester but inconspicuously tucked into the little square mall past 280. Try it.
