Isabella is a neighborhood "find" in a house-turned-restaurant. The interior's decor has fun trompe-l'oeil on the walls and ceiling. Isabella's consistent quality in service and cuisine makes this restaurant a favorite. Friendly servers deliver food piping hot to the table; the kitchen is just steps away from the dining area. Isabella's is my go-to place for roast duck with garlic... More

I love Isabella's. It is the perfect place on a cold Chicago night to be cozy and eat wonderful homemade pastas. I have had the Osso Bucco several times and it is also terrific.. My favorite restaurant in Tinley Park.

It was not at all what I expected.Although a little pricy,and a little cramped.(small place) the food was excellent along with the service.It is charming in its environment,but rather sweet in it's own sort of homey way.

We come to Isabella in downtown Tinley Park all the time. Consistently excellent with outstanding service by Abraham who has been our waiter for about 10 years now. If you like pasta order Penne Porcini. This is pasta in a cream sauce with fresh mushrooms. Amazing. Their lamb chops are also another fave of mine. Always get their salad to... More

Isabella's is one our favorite places for a date, anniversary, or small business meal. It's intimate, hospitable, and unique. It is such a refreshing change from chain restaurants that dominate these suburbs. We have visited many times, from a Valentine's date (which they graciously accommodated with a reservation near the window) to bringing out-of-town family to bringing work associates for... More

We had driven by the restaurant for many years and decided to try it. It is a converted residence. It is nothing fancy. The food was good, but not great. We will probably not return there.
