Isabella's is one of my favorite places to go in downtown Frederick. Specially when I have friends and family in town. It's fun to all get different tapas and share them. Everything is always so yummy!

We have eaten there often. This time was for a birthday dinner. Upon seating we were informed we couldn't bring in our birthday cake, So we left. But we will go back on other occasions, not for birthdays. Food is great.
