    This is the best restaurant on AMI and the best Italian we’ve ever had outside of Italy. It’s a must! Be sure to get a reservation. You will be thankful you did!

    This place is a dump, sign out front blown out.. probably by Ian , lamps strung by extension cords and plugged into outlets, Parking lot gives an abandoned vibe. The best time I had was leaving. Complete restaurant needs upgraded

    We ate here tonight and it was a fantastic dinner. Our waiter had great recommendations and obviously knew the food menu and wine menu very well. The food was outstanding, especially the carbonara which can be a very hard dish to get right. Truly delicious. Such a pleasant surprise to find such great Italian food on Anna Maria

    Delicious food and very good service. Not really a great "family" restaurant, but that's by design. Food is excellent but the options are limited to about 10 items and the daily specials. Portions are smaller so it's more date night, than prepare to chow down.

    Our first visit to Isola Bella and it couldn't have gone better. We were greeted & seated immediately upon arrival and our server Dan made the rest of the meal great. His suggestions and advice were spot on. Would definitely recommend it and will make a point to visit again when next we're in AMI. Thanks to all the staff!!

    We ( 4 friends) had heard good thins about Isola Bella from other friends and it turns out they were right the food was very good and service matched it. The environment was relatively quiet but nothing special. We were seated promptly and never rushed. Three of us had various veal dishes which came with pasta the veal was tender and juicy and cooked to medium . Which was fine as the cutlets were only 3/8ths to 1/2 inch thick . Trimmed well so no waste. Prices might be somewhat higher than similar restaurants. Maybe “island up charge”. We will eat there again.
