The restaurant is located in a shopping center, and does not look particularly impressive from the outside. But we found our waitstaff to be very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu items. They were willing to make some substitutions to make our meal exactly what we wanted. If we were in the area we would definitely return to Isabella's.

When I read the reviews of this retaurant it had a few bad ones, but I can't understand why. My wife and I had a great dinner there. First things first.They gave us a great corner table, and our server Josh was very good; just the right amount of attentiveness, not to much and not to little. Also he was... More

My favorite time to eat here is when the temperature allows you to be outside. Lynchburg has so few places that offer this. Recently, my wife and I ate here for her birthday lunch. The red pepper soup and tapenade appetizer were especially good this day. Allways good and always excellent service.

We LOVED going to Isabella's! The food was outstanding as was the service. We had family visiting from LA and it was so nice to be able to take them to a restaurant here in Lynchburg that can compete with anything LA has to offer :-)

Thanks for bringing your family from LA to Isabella's on their recent visit to Lynchburg. We were trying to figure out if LA was Los Angeles or Louisiana but it really doesn't matter because it's such a great compliment either way! More

While dinners here are good also, my favorite meal here is at lunch. You can order the soup and salad/sandwich and they have some great choices for a reasonable cost. Always pay the extra bucks to get the fig salad as it is yummy and pairs well with any of the other dishes. Staff are friendly and the meals are... More

Visited recently for lunch and was not disappointed. Lovely decor, Efficient and pleasant waiter who delivered an outstanding lunch. Menu choices are varied and we all love the "soup and..." options. The lobster bisque was a big hit! Highly recommended

Very nice atmosphere. Great wine selection; bartender very helpful. We split a pizza - don't think it was the best choice on the menu. It wasn't bad but the pasta dishes looked fantastic.

We have been visiting Isabella's since we moved to Lynchburg 13 years ago! It is where we go with our family to celebrate special occasions, especially the end-of-school year celebrations, but others as well. Cheri and Andrew run a very efficient operation, serve excellent and creative foods, and have a fun and engaging wait staff.
