A little French styled restaurant tucked into the Little Italy area of town. We had the pleasure of being paired up with Chef/Owner Fabio Mota for a round of golf awhile back. His inspiring stories of food, chef school and his labor of love - Club Isabella, brought us in. We came back for dinner and were delighted with our... More

CI's new location is more visually appealing though when at or near capacity, the ambient noise level is very high. The food and service is very good, though twice of late the wine I selected was not available, leaving me uncertain as to the strength of the cellar.

Just another example of a non-traditional Little Italy restaurant that hits it outta the park. Nothing Italian about it! Wonderful wine list, friendly wait staff and the owner and chef both came out to thank us after our meal. We all ordered different entrees and shared. Pork tenderloin, steak and chicken dishes to die for. Highly recommended.

Not to ruin a good thing (get any table you want, walk in without a reservation ) but about 2 blocks away people are scrambling for parking and plunking down more money for waaay less better food. I'm not really sure what's up but the entrees were all very good, the salads a very nice twist on standards, and a... More

I had not been to Club Isabella in several years, being a warm sunny evening and looking for a place with a patio, we decided to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise, from the nice patio to the absolutely fabulous service & food, this is a great restaurant at reasonable prices! I definitely will not wait so long... More

Club Isabella is definitely a hidden gem within Little Italy. It's off the "beaten path" and it's a wonderful restaurant. Every time I've gone either on a date or on a business meeting, I've had wonderful service, fabulous wine, and good food. The one thing that I enjoy about their service especially when I was on my date, the staff... More

On a recent Friday night, my husband and I stopped at Club Isabella for a quick bite after being at a MIX party at the art museum. It was around 830pm, and the restaurant only had two tables filled!? But there was a wonderful piano player, and an nice patio, so we sat outside. The waiter was very friendly and... More

New Year's Eve dinner. We were seated over 30 minutes late after being asked if we wanted to eat at the bar! When we asked when we were going to be seated, the hostess asked my wife "Why, are you someone important?" !!! One entree was pretty good (short ribs). My wife's was a disaster. She asked for a well... More

Having frequented the "original" Club Isabella some 30+ years a go I was curious to see how the latest incarnation on Cornell Road measured up. It was great. The interior of the new Club Isabella is spacious and well laid out. The design of the restaurant is beautiful with some great artwork on the walls. Service was fast and friendly.... More

This was a terrible restaurant, the service was slow and terrible, the food tasted nasty, the pizza crusty seemed to be the same pre-made crust at a low grade grocery store, they took over an hour to get our food. The wait staff was very cocky, and rude. They desperately tried to be a higher end restaurant, but epically failing... More
