I went to Trattoria for my 20th anniversary. They took such great care of me, my husband spoils me rotten, but boy, did they top it off. From the champagne, and dessert, and the romantic candles they set out just for us, he called in for specialty decoration, and boy they went above and beyond. Thank you Trattoria Isabella, you will forever be in our memories. I hope next year he brings me back to your place, food was just amazing, and sitting by that wood burning oven, on such a cold winter's night, was amazing. I was speechless. Ladies, they even went as far as to present my present (20th anniversary ring) I was stunned... HINT HINT honey, please bring me back there next year!!! Christmas would be fine too!

Our favorite neighborhood restaurant. The staff treats you like family. My husband says it's the best panini he's had since he was in Rome. Vodka sauce is amazing, as are most of the pasta dishes. They make their soups from scratch and they're to die for! I'm not a big soup person and I never fail to order a bowl. Salads are great and the seafood is fresh and well cooked. Outdoor patio area is a great place to eat or hang out at the bar. Deserts are good, but not the highlight. I can't remember if my favorite is spimoni or gelatto, but its good stuff.

We live round the block - so biased by convenience.. but it is great to walk to and eat here. our favorites - bruschetta, pollo vesuvio, ravioli and tiramisu. wine has also been good. i think the pasta portions are too big.otherwise it has a great al fresco dining option.. and theres actually space.. so just adding a review - definitely worth it..esp on a nice balmy evening..

We live close to Isabella and it has become our "go to" place when we are tired and just want to walk to the corner to eat. If you go, try the soup of the day - even if it sounds odd. The soups are amazing and I don't even like soup. The red pepper is my favorite although I've had asapargus and squash too which were excellent. The linguini frutti di mere has more seafood than most and the sauces that they use are unique and very tasty. I worked in an Italian restaraunt so it is nice to find some good variations although I'd prefer more stuffed pasta choices. Salads are so-so but the appetizers are well presented and the cozze scoppiate mussels are huge. Calamari Fritti has a great tangy sauce. Wine choices are typical mix but solid. The service varies but Pauly always makes sure that any issues are taken care of quickly. Usually it is only with newer staff and we eaten there enough to see that wait staff that aren't good don't seem to be there for very long. During the summer it was a weekly destination to sit in the outside seating area to unwind. Sometimes the smell from the chocolate factory would waft over the corner and really bring a smile to everyones face. Oh, I almost forgot, they have ILLY coffee!! Machine is direct from Italy too. Check it out and order the soup of the day, don't ask what it is, just order it. I would rank the food higher but I've eaten at Everest so it is a relative ranking but solid. Value is probably a better judge because I'm happy to pay for this quality of food on a weekly basis as opposed to Everest type places which I can only justify once in a blue moon.
