Isabella's Italian Trattoria Ratings and Reviews
It was an enjoyable evening! It wasn't busy so it was very quiet, and we had a table in a room all to ourselves. Service was excellent and the food was well-prepared and generally quite tasty. It was a little higher-priced than our typical dining experience but since we were enjoying our last night together as a family before my daughter's return to California, it was a worthwhile evening. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a restaurant a step up from a chain Italian restaurant for a special occasion.
I love this family owned and operated restaurant. I have never had a bad or even mediocre meal at Isabellas’s; I have been an infrequent - 3-4 times a year-patron for 17 years. Although it is technically an Italian restaurant, everything especially the fish and seafood is excellent. The wine list is extensive and what they are well known for, but they also now list an IPA selection as well. My daughter and her British boyfriend stated their pasta dishes were delicious. My husband, a picky eater cleaned his cod plate, and my pan seared scallops were perfectly cooked and wonderful. The service is attentive without being obtrusive and always served with good cheer. The only slightly negative was a noisy party in the booth behind us, but overall the owners have done an admirable job at dissipating noise. My husband is a little hard of hearing but did not complain or even comment on the degree of background noise. Recommended without hesitation!
I took my lady out for a date night, and it was exceptionally excellent. The two of us got an appetizer, meals, drinks, and desserts and the bill was about $100, as I anticipated. My only complaint is that our appetizer was pretty small - we ordered the stuffed mushroom for $8, and it was a lot smaller than we both expected (not to mention they only give you one mushroom for the appetizer). However, I will say it was one of the best stuffed mushrooms I’ve had. My girlfriend and I each got a special of the week and neither of us were disappointed! Lastly, our service was amazing. Our waiter was very polite and respectful, was always there when we needed him and kept his distance when we didn’t. It felt very respectful, and I’ve never seen service like that anywhere else!
Food very good.
Had requested a round table as there were six of us.....didn’t get it. Makes all the difference....we were not able to hear each other. We had come from different parts of the east coast and out of country for this meal get together.
Service otherwise was very good. We were placed in a very noisy area.
This was my first visit and it won”t be my last. Friendly, knowledgeable and attentive staff. Excellent food. We were there for lunch so it was a limited menu but choices were adequate for a nice business lunch. I had the Tomato basil pasta with a dried fig salad. My guest had a root soup and the dried fig salad. It was nice to be able to enjoy a quiet conversation in a very nice atmosphere.
Everything we ordered was excellent! We are from out of town and have come back several times over the years. They have delivered a consistent, high-level experience each time. We will come back again. Delicious, creative offerings and locally sourced beers.
We were staying in Lynchburg for our 15th anniversary, and Isabella's came recommended by family and the internet. We decided to make it our "big" dinner of the weekend, and we're so glad we did. Every staff member that interacted with us was aware of our special occasion, and they treated us wonderfully. The food was outstanding. My wife asked about an item that was on the internet menu, but not on the menu in-house, and they made it for her anyhow. She loved it (Shrimp Aglio). I had their Homemade Sausage Pasta, which is basically a traditional penne vodka, only with house-made sausage (made from local pork), and baked with cheese. It was stupendous. We also tried the fried risotto balls to start, and for dessert, we had the house-made pecan pie (my wife said it was out of this world) and the tiramisu (not house-made, but still delicious).
We're hoping to make this trip to Lynchburg a yearly occasion from here on out, and if we do, Isabella's will be on our itinerary every time.
The food was overpriced and under seasoned. I spent $26 on a fillet that was tiny, with a huge line of gristle down the center. Small scoop of mashed potatoes, and 4(!) asparagus. No seasoning on anything. Very disappointing
Very good food, portion sizes, variety, service, atmosphere, etc. Took a group for lunch, and there was a good selection for all tastes and diets. All the food was fresh and there was a gracious plenty on each plate. We also had excellent service. Highly recommend Isabella's!
While I loved the area I was dinning in and absolutely loved the nice older lady serving us. However the food didn't catch my attention it was ok plated beautifully it tasted a lot like microwaved food mybe I just didn't get crop of the pick but the chicken I had was slightly tough and lacking in flavor for a chicken parmesan, but the noodles and bread were awesome just feel for the 16$ I payed for it I could have definitely made it better at home. My girlfriend didn't like her food that much ethier I not sure why but she said she disliked the cheese in her basil tomato pasta but then again she's really picky and I should base a review off that. I'll definitely be trying you guys again though becuase I love the ambiance and don't want to believe that was the A game food.
