Hadn't been to Isabella's in quite some time. Whether at the bar or one of the two dining rooms, the atmosphere is nice. The service was very good. We (4 people) had a number of dishes, all good, some a bit smaller than they should...More

We just went there for dinner. I had the watermelon salad and bacon wrapped scallops. Excellent meal with great service. The place is noisy.

This is one of my Frederick favorites for lunch. They have a three tapas special which is a great deal. Full service bar. Nice ambience. A little pricey for dinner.
