Isabella Restaurant Review

: You might not think of blue collar Elm Street in Conshohocken as a dining destination. But at Isabella, first impressions are promising, from the well-priced bar and wine list to the savvy service and comfortable setting. Sous chef Mario Rodriguez, who has succeeded opening chef Michael Cappon, is still taking an ingredient-driven approach. His small-plate menu ranges from such dishes as seared Brussels sprouts with wildflower honey and pecorino to fried calamari with an arugula salad and a cilantro and green chili pesto, to three meaty lamb chops drizzled with a fig sherry reduction. The charcuterie and cheeses are also winners, as are the thin-crusted pizzas with toppings framed by San Marzano tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. A meal of small plates and pizza satisfies, or add a Kobe burger or perhaps the bucatini "del mare" --- a pasta dish with sautéed shrimp, scallops and calamari in an anise-flavored seafood stock.
