THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Isabella's Ristorante Italiano Restaurant Review

: One of the most surprising restaurants in the northern suburbs, Isabella's is a haven for the neighbors when they're seeking fine food at a reasonable price. Low lighting and richly faux painted walls with texture create a warm Tuscan dining space. The lunch and dinner buffets are good deals, with 10 or so dishes ranging from rich, filling homemade lasagna to Caesar salad to salmon or monkfish and light pastas. Chef Alessandro diMaggio---he'd never heard of Joe but did know about Marilyn---is a spark plug of energy. Committed to authenticity, he makes everything on site, including the authentic Tuscan bread. Excellent mussels and vegetable minestrone are two of the good starters. Half-orders of pasta also make good openers; the airy gnocchi in bolognese sauce are so filling that a half-order can be a main course. Excellent osso buco comes with a tiny fork perched in the marrow bone so that a guest may snare every last morsel of the tastiness within. DiMaggio insists on cooking it two days ahead so the flavors develop. The wine list isn't extensive or particularly adventurous, but it has good Italian selections at fair prices.
