Dallas Observer's Description

Loosely steeped in the cuisines of Lombardi, Tuscany and Veneto, Isabella's (and its lounge, Isa) does a worthy job of straddling Italian culinary authenticity with Frisco suburbia fright points (No fresh anchovies here -- yet). Respectable risotto shares space with a wonderful sea bass laced with olive pâté, a tasty Tuscan tenderloin in chianti reduction and a wonderfully conceived tuna tartare draped in herbed chickpea puree that only fails because the tuna is a couple of notches off top-grade. Isabella is a real (Italian!) lady, and the owners (Craig Vaught and Kenyon Price) personify the restaurant with her essence referring to "her doors" and how "she blends" regional culinary influences, as if she were an oil tanker or a destroyer. Let's hope she doesn't sink.

Tips from foursquare

  • Burcin /. on 03/30/11

    Italian elegant, all about ingredients as it should be. Capellini & Calamari with white Italian. Light and great balanced sauce. Overall; good ambience, delicate food, very good service.****

    Great choice. They list their offers on TangoTab, who donates a meal every time you use them. And, it's free. http://apps.tangotab.com

    Any of the pizzas are great

  • kyndall m. on 07/11/12

    Try the bruschetta - the goat cheese and pesto drizzle make it!

  • Frances G. on 04/06/12

    Best restaurant in Dallas! Service is top notch and you must try the frozen Rossini and lobster ravioli! It's like being in Italy again!
