Diner Reviews
  • "We really like Isabellas. The food is mostly tapas and they are great to share. The menu has lots to offer and the food is always prepared so well. Their pizzas are excellent (you must try the tartuffo pizza). On our latest visit, we tried the pizza, scallops, ribs, wild mushroom and egg, baby octopus and a couple of salads. All were scrumptous (the octopus was a bit weak) and there was plenty of food for 4 people. The bartender makes terrific cocktails. I definitely recommend this nice and fun restaurant."

  • "I took my husband to Isabella's on 4/12. We were sat right away (made reservations on open table). Our server was friendly and explained the menu and specials. We shared the eggs purgatory, gnocchi, ribs, and Kobe burger. Everything was great but the ghocci was fabulous, melted in your mouth, definitely fresh made pasta. We shared a bottle of the house red for $25 and it was really good. Whole meal was 75 plus tip and we left full. We liked the atmosphere, loud, crowded, church pews and comfortable chairs as seating. We will definitely be going back and recommending this place to our friends."

  • "Isabella's is a quaint restaurant hidden on a residential street in Conshohoken. Our waitress was very accomodating as my dining partner has a gluten and seed allergy. The wine list is very limited with one offering of varietal. The mussels were terrific but the skirt steak was over cooked and chewy. I would definitely go back and try it again. Would be nice if it was BYOB too."

  • "Isabella's is a great find right around the corner from the heart of Conshohocken. Convenient and easy to get to, but also a very unique little get away. The food and wine list is outstanding, service friendly and prompt, and much attention has been paid to the architecture and decor to both maximize the space available and to heighten the dining experience. Be sure to book a reservation because the room fills up most nights. A fun and enjoyable night out."

  • "Our third time here - second for dinner. Veal meatballs and calamari for apps - both were exceptional. My wife says the meatballs remind her of her mother's - and saying a lot! We also got the fig, carmelized onions and gorganzola pizza and enoyed it thoroughly. There pizzas are very nicely done and between the apps and pizza, we're always content. Only thing I would say is somewhat annoying is the front part of the restaurant is a little tight, so once you're seated, expect to have people brushing past you as they get to the back. Also, quite a draft when the front door is opened, so DO NOT get a seat anywhere near the front door as you will experience the (still) cold weather outside. Still, will continue to go back again with friends."

  • "I tried the food with the new chef Rodriguez-Feo for the first time the day after Valentine's Day because their special menu looked like a lot of fun. What a treat! I was pleasantly surprised at how beautifully this 8-course meal was done. I will only highlight my favorites which were the seared scallops and the salmon. The seafood were cooked perfectly, which says a lot since almost everyone overcooks their seafood, and the pairing was excellent! The scallops were seared on the surfaces and left translucent inside and it was deliciously sweet paired with a cauliflower puree. The salmon was seared crisp on the skin side and what looked to be an overdone fish where it is just starting to flake turned out extremely moist. Excellent!!!"

  • "Evidentally, the place is under new management and everything was better than our first visit. Staff was very attentive and food was good as it gets. Highly recommended."

  • "We have dined here previously and loved it so were anxious to go back. It was somewhat disappointing this time. They tried squeezing us at a table that was impossible to even squeeze into, then acted put out when we asked to move 1 table over in the dining room that was half empty. We literally could not both sit at the table because of people sitting with their backs touching ours in both directions. The food was good - salad and seafood entrees. I tried skate; it was mediocre. I didn't care for the plate full of lentils. Service was very very slow. Coffee was barely luke warm, no refill offered. Too many other great restaurants to waste my time there again. Sorry."

  • "We went to Isabellas on a Monday around 7PM. The restaurant had a very minimal occupancy but the service and food was fantastic. We decided to order about 6 small plates including the mixed cheese plate. Everything was fantastic and our server was both attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back to make our way through all the other dishes we didn't get a chance to try."

  • "This is likely not a good spot for a quiet Valentines Day dinner. The dining area has limited space and is moderately noisy; so it depends on what you are looking for in a holiday dining experience. Also they had a special "chef's choice" menu, but it wasn't advertised, so several people complained. This led the restaurant to offer the regular menu as an option. The switch caused a disjointed and unorganized situation. We opted for the Chef's holiday special dining menu anyway, but still our items came out in a random order and we nearly missed a couple of courses. I will say that the food was good, portions were perfect! However the restaurant is just not set up and organized for a Valentines tasting menu. Good for drinks/apps"

  • "My wife and I went out to this Conshohocken restaurant on a snowy Saturday. Parking is a bit challenging, but we found a spot and went in. We were seated in the back at a table for two between two other couples. There wasn't even enough room between the tables for someone to slide by. You have to move the table to get to the far seat. Not sure what the thinking is here. The food was great though and that made up for the much too crowded seating arrangements."

  • "In the end everything mostly worked out amid what was a tough night there. I know they brought in a new chef, but we were informed the manager had quit only hours earlier that day. Made online reservations for Valentine's Day hoping to enjoy the advertised happy hour drinks and menu. Upon arrival, we were seated and then told the only menu that night was a a price fixed 8 course meal not the usual entree menu nor the happy hour dishes. The waitress was rude and flustered. When we told her we were there for the happy hour menu and drinks, her response was that is not available. We told her we would not be staying for our meal.Another server came and told us that they would serve the happy hour menu but only at a high top table or at the bar."

  • "Incredible food.. Service not so incredible. My boyfriend and I went for a nice valentines day dinner. The food was amazing. Our server was horrible. Not only did she not introduce herself, but she came to our table maybe 3 times the entire evening. When our glasses were empty, there was no offer for another glass of wine. I normally would excuse the lack of service due to being extremely busy with the valentines day crowd, however, she had no issue stopping at the table next to us every few minutes to see if they needed anything. I am not one to leave reviews really, but the food was seriously incredible and, unfortunately, the service was so horrible I will not be going back."

  • "Went for their Valentines Day 8 course tasting menu. The place was busy, but certainly not overwhelmed with diners. The first three courses came out at the same time, and were presented to us out of order. It felt as though they were just trying to push food out of the kitchen, rather than serve a tasting menu. The beef and fish course arrived at the same time, leaving us to decide whether to let the steak or the salmon go cold while we ate the other. The worst offense was the final two courses; soup (which should have been served before the meats) and dessert, on the table within moments of each other. I've had fine meals at this restaurant before, so I'm not sure what went wrong tonight, but they really missed the mark by a huge margin."

  • "Excellent tapas restaurant especially seafood. Pizza was very good as well. Especially from a native NYers perspective. Intimate seating and reservations probably required, but worth a wait."

  • "This was our first time at this restaurant and they hit the mark in all categories. Food, service and vibe were all fantastic. We focused our orders on the tapas menu even though the larger entrees also sounded delicious. Everything that we ordered hit the mark, but two dishes really stood out…the lamb tapas and the brussels sprouts side dish. We are looking for a date to return and try more of the menu."

  • "The pizza is delicious!! exceptional. The ribs were delicious. I was disappointed that the order included only 3 small ribs...as my wife and I were sharing. This was not convenient. But they were delicious.Beet salad was also delicious, but very small to share. The chairs are very close together so it is very hard to maneuver in and out. This is not part of my "rating" but .... over all, very good food , small portions...cramped seating but lively absence."

  • "Staff was very friendly and accommodating even though we were very late due to horrific traffic . Bistro food was very good for a neighborhood place. My husband was impressed with the draft beer selection. Only complaint was seating was very tight, but everyone made due. Would definitely go back."

  • "I have driven past here so many times and wanted to go but never took the opportunity. On Friday night, I took some out of town visitors to check it out. It was AMAZING!!! The food, the wine, the ambiance - everything just wonderful. We started off with a cheese plate and then shared an Isabella salad, magas and a roasted vegetable pizza. It was to die for! Great work Isabellas!"

  • "This restaurant has an interesting menu, very well-executed, both straightforward fare like excellent burgers and amazing pizza and great small plates and entrees. The service is excellent, the servers really pleasant. My only tiny quibble is that the food was not sufficiently hot in temperature when served. I usually prefer BYOs, but this is a worthwhile exception to that rule."

  • "The food, which is mediterranean tapas style, was good, although not great overall. Some dishes were excellent, others not so much. We were there on a night that was not particularly busy, and the service was good. The noise level was fine for conversation, but I'm not sure about the noise if the place is busy."

  • "A great place to sip wine and relax. There is something for everyone on the wide range menu. The pizzas and mussels were great, as were the other dishes we have tried in the past. Depending on the evening the restaurant can vary from a cozy, quiet setting to an energetic scene. I definitely would recommend to couples or groups of friends looking for a relaxing night out."

AND I was alerted by open table, that we were a no show, because they probably didnt sign us in...."

  • "We were prepared to have an "ok" experience based on other reviews, so we were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed it' The cheese assortment was very good, with thoughtful accompaniments. The Isabella salad was excellent, and the Brussels sprouts were done perfectly! The restaurant is small, but IMO that only contributes to the feel of a "secret" neighborhood place with unexpectedly good food! We will be back soon!"

  • "Not as good as the last few times. They have to figure out the timing of serving the food when it if hot not lukewarm. The waiter wadntup to par with the others we have had in the oast. The chocolate mousse was grainy. Still willing to give it another try but it has to be better and like it was on our first a year ago."

  • "Love Isabella's. Was getting over a head cold so I didn't share tapas with my friends and instead ordered a main plate (which I never do other than the burger) and was shocked at the salmon. Truffle sweet potatoes, Brussel sprouts and salmon with chinntales - WOW! I devoured the entire dish...which I rarely can finish in entirety! Thanks Isabella's!"
