    We’ve eaten here many times over the last eight years. Our party of seven really enjoyed our experience at Isola Bella. All of the dishes from the salads to the entrees and desserts were delicious. Service was excellent and our waiter provided great recommendations. The meal was nicely paced and we never felt rushed. We hope to be back again next year.

    Neither a great location nor an exceptional meal. Outdoor tables were noisy with nearby trucks, heaters were not operational, and food was average, even mediocre. Nothing at all notable about sauces, pasta, presentation, or taste. As Italian fare goes, this was a little worse than your average takeout place. Seriously overpriced. Desserts showed some potential for being interesting, but for pasta, antipasti, and salad, you’d be much better off at Vinny’s and spend a lot less. Thumbs down.

    This is the third year we celebrated my birthday at Isola Bella. We always meet our friends there. We were a party of 8. Just two issues-we had a reservation for 7:45PM but weren't seated until 8:15PM. Also we purchased two bottles of $84 wine (each). When the waitress was handing out dessert menus, she knocked over my full wine glass. She briefly apologized and moped up the spill. But she never offered to replace the glass of wine or offer a free dessert or a free after dinner drink. Nothing....I was surprised....

    Dan, the server and owner, is great. The food is constantly good. The value is fine for the island. Its a small venue, but takes reservations. We frequently dine here. Try it. You will like it. Best Italian on island. Not a pizza joint!

    The food was incredible, best gnocchi with creamy pesto sauce ever! The decor is nice and unassuming, but nothing special. Service was fine. Cocktail well portioned and tasty. But the food makes up for any deficiencies!

    Pretty decor… somewhat crowded…excellent service…good food and presentation…expensive for the very small portions…not much pasta with my husband’s four scallops special. Nice for a one time experience, but much too expensive for the tiny portions offered.

    My lobster ravioli was fantastic. My hubby had the shrimp special. We cleaned our plates. Started with the caesar salad; more than enough to share. My only disappointment was they DID NOT have the pistachio ricotta cake (I recommend it to everyone on FB). We settled for the tiramisu. That was good too, but I can still taste that cake from last year.

    What a gem of a restaurant! Inimate with the inside eating and the patio area was spacious with heaters to help with the chill in the air. We ate from the specials selection. All of the entrees and appetizers were outstanding! Our waiter was efficient and provided good suggestions. Will definately look to return.

    We loved our dinner here! My wife got the ravioli ala vodka and she added a meatball, and I had the chicken parmesan. Both were perfect. The host greeted us with a friendly smile and the waiter was pleasant and professional. These two things used to be a standard at restaurants, but today, it is rare. Excellent food and attentive service made for a ver pleasant evening.
