There was a new server that did not deliver the typical Isola Bella experience. It distracted from our 5star dinner

Waiters seemed eager to please but untrained. Putting forks on the table directly these days is a no no. The food didn't taste cooked. Raw red sauce taste. Had to ask several times for a fork or napkin. Pasta WAS cooked perfectly. I would try it for lunch next time. Give it a second chance. Every place can have a bad day.

This restaurant has great service and delicious food! However, I do think it is a bit expensive.

Dan, is a great waiter and everyone in the restaurant is very attentive to the guests. Love coming here for dinner just wish the prices were a little more reasonable.

All in all this is a very nice Italian restaurant.

Nice old school Italian eatery. The pasta sauce was not full flavored, tasted to much like plain tomato. Lobster ravioli was amazing. Chicken parm average. Value was good for the Island, but as a local their are other options as good and not quite as expensive.

The best Italian meal we have ever had! We had the meatball appetizer and Caprese salad. Both were excellent and fresh. For entrees, we tried the lasagna and chicken parmigiana, both amazing. The service was impeccable and the ambiance was intimate and welcoming. Isola Bella is a hidden gem in AMI and a must-try!

Very enjoyable dinner. Ricotta gnocchi is excellent as was the special lobster ravioli. The veal Marsala was good and seafood pasta as well. Gnocchi best dish of all. Our only issue was all the food came so quickly, our party of 5 had dinner appetizers and dinner in less than 30 min. Not the relaxing meal we planned but better than waiting hours for food. We will return. Yummy!!!

Wait staff poor and inattentive. though the food runner/backup waiter was nice and helpful. Food was decent/meh. There to celebrate at birthday. Pro— complimentary dessert. Con- no choice in the matter, no follow up, and not even barely a noticeable “HBD” from the staff. This place has pretty good reviews. Disappointed I believed them.

Cannot say enough about how wonderful our experience was at Isola Bella. The service was friendly and attentive and the food outstanding. Only recommendation is that you share. All servings are HUGE. Nice outside patio area— did a lot to make it not feel like you were in a parking lot. Definitely will be back!

The egg plant appetizer was delicious and enough for up to four people. We had the lasagna and stuffed ravioli and have to say it was the best I have ever had. great service. I highly recommend this Italian restaurant.

Pasta dish, a special vegetarian, was wonderful. A very full serving. The vodka ravioli is always fantastic. Gelato was yummy. Early seating for two, outside was a very nice evening. We are on island locals snowbirds.....was our 4th time there. Takeout business was also brisk. Try it....you'll love it!

Pasta was very good, especially the lasagna and the gnocchi. Also the salted caramel gelato was amazing. Our friends that had the seafood plates were over cooked and there isn’t a great selection of wine. Service was fantastic. Will go back for the lasagna which isn’t something I normally look for but was amazing.

This was our first visit to Isola Bella and we will return. You need to order the eggplant appetizer. The two pasta dishes we ordered were outstanding. The portions were very generous with enough to bring home. There are a number of Italian restaurants on Anna Maria Island. We have been to many of them. This is one of the best.

Initially I choose this restaurant because they took reservation during high tourist season. I was very happy I did. The food was great. I had dinner with 3 other people . We had different meals and each person was very happy with their meal. The service was good and the ambiance was nice. Our group was able to gave conversation with out having to yell over the other diners. I recommend thus restaurant and will return soon.

We sat on the patio and I was very pleased to see the preparation for our table in this Covid time. Everything was wiped down, booth seat and back, the table, the menus
The food was outstanding
We ordered a homage Burrata appetizer that came with charcuterie and artichokes and olives and cheese. It was wonderful
I had a special which was short rib ravioli in a mushroom ragout with Madeira and cream. It was divine. The amount of fresh mushrooms was incredible. The portions was quite large and made a great lunch the next day
My husband had the chicken Piccata which he said was delicious
We shared an exceptionally good Tiramisu for dessert and the bottle of wine was very nice. A great meal on Anna Maria
