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!
Always quality experience in every way. And so it was this evening.
As always - excellent quality and service. Can’t wait to go back.
We have never had a bad meal or a bad experience at Isabella's. This time was no different. Our server, Ruthie, was excellent; the appetizers, meals and beverages were outstanding and the overall experience was great!
Wonderful food! Great service! Excellent selection of wines. Highly recommend
Family birthday dinner. Really enjoyable atmosphere and service.
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.
Family celebrate a birthday
My husband birthday
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.
Ordered blackened tuna. Didn't get it.
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.
We had a great experience. I had not been there in ten years since my daughter graduated from VES. Was good then and nothing changed.
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.
Never had a bad experience at this restaurant. The food is very tasty and as ordered.
well situated ,feeling seperate from shopping plaza.Great food, great service.Wirth coming back for sure

I loved Isabella's! It's a beautiful venue with delicious food. The ambiance was great and the service exceptional. We had a great experience!
Isabella’s is our trusty favorite. Always delicious, great service and cozy atmosphere! My favorite to recommend because it is always great.
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.
Delicious food, attentive service and inviting decor. Consistently great!
We had a fabulous experience! Victoria was our server and she was superior. Love coming here!
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
Excellent as always Wife's favorite restaurant in Lynchburg
Really enjoyed coming back for a Valentine's dinner. Food was excellent as always and the wait staff were friendly.
Great atmosphere and good service. Will definitely come back in the future
Excellent. Always prepared as ordered and very tasty. Yum yum yum!
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*
Such a warm and inviting setting. Food is always great as is the service.
We have been to Isabella's a few times and have always had a delightful experience. It is our go-to place to bring our visiting friends. The food is delectable, the wait staff is efficient and friendly and the ambiance exceptional. We will continue coming back.
Very good neighborhood Italian trattoria, which uses local sourced food.
Still my favorite Lynchburg restaurant. Consistently good. This time I had an elderflower collins before dinner and it was a lovely cocktail. I had mussels and a salad for dinner and both were very good. I like their scallops better.
I would say that the food was exquisite. Also my waiter was unparalleled to say the least
Excellent food and service. The wood fire pizzas are always delicious and the the salmon my wife had was spectacular.
