    My family & I have eaten at Isabella's since it opened. When my son comes in from Seattle he always wants to have lunch there.

    Food was delicious, as always, but our waitress was terrible. The people behind us, who got there the same time as us and were served by the same waitress, received their check and left before we even got our entrees. Then another couple entered, ate their entire meal, got their check, and left before we even received our check. Maybe it's because we were young or who knows why, but our waitress is the only thing about which I have to complain. Otherwise, I highly suggest Isabella's if you're looking for amazing, high-quality food at a reasonable price!
