We had reservations. I loved the way the hostess greeted my husband and I. She walked us to the back near the fireplace. It was perfect and romantic for our 6th anniversary. Food was great, our waitress was pretty good. Pricing was just right if you know you deserve the best. The waitress was so kind and friendly. She didn't bother us. She came by us to ask how we were and if we needed anything. We ordered the pan seared scallops and the Angus tenderloin. Sparkling pomegranate and the famous Tiramisu. Love this place.

We had a problem with an entrée and they went out of their way to make it right - the sign of a top notch place in my opinion. Since I've never had a problem here before I consider this an anomaly and wouldn't hesitate recommending Isabella's.

This was my first time here. I found it on line and wanted to take my daughter to an Italian restaurant for her birthday. The service was great and the food was very good. I also requested a candle in my daughters dessert and I didn't have to remind them. My daughter said the pecan pie was the best she has had out. We will definitely return to isabellas

My husband and I have been coming to Isabella's for years and it has always been a very nice experience. So I was rather disappointed when bringing a longtime friend from out of town there on Tues. night. I made reservations well in advance yet was seated in the bar. Never have we been seated in the bar. It was loud, the chairs are like outdoor chairs. The service was spotty. When our entrees were being delivered the entire table was still covered with our appetizer and soup dishes. I had to ask for it to be cleared. I can see being seated in the bar if we had no reservation..if we requested it. They didn't even put my guests leftovers in a bag they just handed her the foil bowl. The food is always very good and usually our service is great. Guess I need to request NOT being in the bar from now on. *sigh*
