    This was a combined birthday and anniversary celebration so we really wanted to have a special night. The staff at Isabella's couldn't have done better. We felt treated like royalty and every effort was made to ensure a wonderful evening. The food was delicious and we enjoyed every bite. We thoroughly recommend this place.

    We had a very good meal, and were generally happy with the whole experience. However, their wine list only features a very limited selection of wines under $100 a bottle, and when we tried to order one of these, we were told time after time that they were “completely out of that one.” This just didn’t seem reasonable, and dampens my enthusiasm for the place.

    Service was quick and seemed a bit rushed. Pasta nothing special. Lumache was disappointing, sort of like a Hamburger Helper meal. No complimentary bread.

    Actually Noise Level was over the top!!! Could not eat inside or even at the bar as it was so, so noisy, so asked to sit outside where it was much much quieter. Really not sure if it would be enjoyable in Winter with no choice but to eat inside. Too many Very Noisy People. Food is Excellent but in Winter to eat inside we would only come early or late at quiet times to avoid the noise. (Noisey Newyorkers and we are Local Manhatanites as well)

    Great atmosphere. Appetizers and salads were excellent. Entrees inconsistent. Some entrees were outstanding like spaghetti and meatballs but Linguine and Rock shrimp were seriously overcooked which should not happen at a restaurant of this quality. Given how positive the overall atmosphere and quality of the other meals were I would go back and give it another try.

    Had the Restaurant Week menu and each dish was delicious. The waitstaff seemed a bit overworked, but they were very nice. Inside the restaurant was super-loud, so we sat outside in their shed. We would have preferred to sit inside for the air conditioning but it was way too loud to talk. Overall a pleasant experience, but 7:00 on a Tuesday was not the ideal time for a comfortable dining experience.

    The food was outstanding, however the service was poor. Example: once we got our food we were asked if we wanted cheese and pepper we replied yes, and it took five minutes to get said cheese.

    The pastas were excellent and so were the cocktails. They had gluten free pasta and accommodated my allergy with ease. The restaurant was really warm inside though as if the AC wasn't working which was the only detractor from the night. A great spot with delicious food perfect for catching up with friends.

    Seated quickly but restaurant was only half full at 7:30PM-busy by 8:30. Server was good but never offered us bread. When we told him at the end, he apologized but said we had to ask for it. Appetizers were excellent - roasted beet salad an Caesar salad with one of the best dressings. Unfortunately, the entrees- which were brought to us almost immediately after we finished our appetizers, were not as good. The linguini with rock shrimp was bland and need some sauce. Was supposed to be scampi style but sauce was skimpy and only lemon flavored. The spaghetti and meatballs were ok but nothing special. Considering we received our 2 courses within 30 minutes, they didn’t rush to get us out. Maybe our experience was not the usual but it needs improvement before we return.

    We are outside in the gazebo. Our food was excellent. We had crispy calamari, pork chop, tagletelle, bucatini, and tiramisu. Everything was great. I recommend getting cheese grated on top of your pasta. It was truly outstanding. The service was terrific. Highly recommended!

    Came in early to our reservation and were seated promptly. It’s a beautiful restaurant with intimate seating. However our waitress rushed us asking if we could order our whole meal right away because they were about to close which was in 40min. Not even a greeting/menu wrap-she didn’t even give us her name. We both work in restaurants so we know what it’s like to have guests that stay till after close but it felt rude considering we arrived early and weren’t going to drink liquor. Despite this we quickly ordered our food, probably would’ve gotten more if not rushed. The busser for our section was amazing though, never went a full minute without water and a dirty table.

    Trust a restaurant with a short menu. Isabelle's excels at perfectly seasoned, thoughtfully prepared, and exquisitely plated food. Whether you want pasta (rigatoni, spaghetti & meatballs, bolognese) salads (beets, Caesar, chopped), proteins (fish, chicken), cocktails, or desserts (bodino), you will be treated with some of the best Italian food in Manhattan. Shouts to the service team, particularly Barbara, who I have had the privilege of working with twice.
