We were visiting to attend a grandchilds graduation and live in michigan.. She recommended Isabella's and so did some other people that we asked. All were right on. This was a great choice. Food was very tasty and delicious. Service was helpful with menu choices and presentation was good. Definitely a value on food prices and food portions were perfect. We had a cozy booth in the bar area which was very private and out of the way. Give this restaurant a try.

Very friendly restaurant with an adjoining wine shop. The staff made excellent recommendations, starting with a refreshing Bellini. I had the albacore tuna salad and capri panini. Both were very good. The service was exceptional.

Had a late reservation. Restaurant was crowded but service was prompt. Had mussels appetizer. Maybe the best I've ever tasted. Entrees arrived in reasonable time. We all had different entrees. Each one was wonderful. Only minor flaw...we had to ask for bread instead of waitress bringing it on her own. Overall, a wonderful dining experience!

We stopped by the restaurant on our way back to North Carolina from Washington DC. We were early for our reservations but they were very courteous and seated us. The food was excellent. It is in the Northern Tablet style later than the usual southern Italian fare. This is definitely worth a drive.

Isabella’s exceeded our expectations! The food (brunch) was fantastic. We had the pancakes and chicken salad adjusted to be gluten free. Our server, Ruthie, was exceptional. She was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and how it could be modified and attentive. Great experience and I recommend Isabella’s.

We were entertaining out of town guests and drove 35 minutes each way to arrive at Isabella's. We were seated immediately at our reservation time and the waiter arrived promptly to get us started. he was knowledgeable and could answer all our questions. I ordered the small fig salad with baby greens, a few candied nuts and wonderful balsamic vinaigrette to start and the pan seared scallops with risotto for the entree. Everyone's food was served together by several wait-staff and was piping hot. the scallops were neither undercooked nor overcooked, (difficult to do) but rather were juicy and delicate in flavor. The risotto was superb. I shared the generous cheesecake slice with my friend, a discerning foodie, who agreed it was absolutely delicious. I called the waiter over to express my appreciation to the chef, the waitstaff, the ambiance and the exceptional overall experience. Isabella's is a little gem of a trattoria and compares favorably to Charleston, SC and NYC. It is well worth the drive.

We always enjoy our dinners at Isabella's. They offer an ample selection of entrees, so that everyone in the group can find a meal to his/her liking. I love the way the wine list is organized, with clever descriptions of varietals. Isabella's is our go-to choice for special occasion dinners.

My friend and I were getting together after not seeing each other for a while. Our server was terrific and was very patient with us as we stayed for a couple of hours talking. I was also really impressed that my friend was able to special order a pasta dish to accommodate her wishes. Also, the serving sizes were large and I was able to take home leftovers. Overall a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Isabella’s and we will be back.

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.
