Dinner Menu

Ask Martha Highlight- written by Martha Green

The appetizers were outstanding. Bruschetta pomodoro e basilico was more than tasty and the baguette was lightly buttered and flavored with just the perfect hint of garlic. The bread was grilled and melted in your mouth. Not hard and crusty like some of the others. Wes loves calamari and theirs is lightly breaded and served with a light tomato sauce. Yummy!! All of us liked the fried artichoke hearts the best. No one had ever had them before. I would go back just to have them. They are called Carcciofi Fritti. I did not know that all of their soups are vegetarian based. Maybe that is why I saw several of my Adventist friends in there. The pasta fagoli and the minestrone are good and they also have a soup of the day everyday, cream of cauliflower today. The veal was the best I have had in a long time. It is called dama Bianca….more than great. The shrimp scampi (scampi al diavola) was also excellent. I would definitely order it again. The filet medallions (mignon alvino rosso) was so tender you really didn't need a knife. Wes is a meat eater and loved this dish. We also had a pasta dish and we all were crazy for it. It was fettuccine viviana , fresh spinach, sun dried tomatoes, grilled chicken and a splash of pinot grigio- light and very flavorful. We also tried 3 deserts: Tiramisu, Creme Brulee, and Cannolli. Our favorite the Creme Brulee.

Just want to take a moment and thank you Ruthie and staff for the awesome service you provide to the area! We had the pleasure in December of having my husbands surprise birthday party there and your staff treated us as though we were royalty. The food was excellent and all of our guests had an awesome time. Thank you once again for your dedication to providing the best!

I got to say Ruthie and Martin run a great establishment. I have gone to almost all of their food and wine pairing dinners and have been amazed. Great food and great wine. You wouldn't now it is there by driving by but I must say if you haven't gone.... it is worth the search.

Positives:
- Outstanding food
- Cozy Decor
- Excellent Wine List
- Offered Malbec on wine list (Malbec isn't a rare wine, it's just not common on a restraurant wine list) I recommend putting a Malbec or two on your regular wine list.

Negatives:
- Don't offer wine tastings/samplings (most places do)
- "Very Cheap" flatware. Not classy at all guys! When I'm paying over $15 for a plate of food I should not be eating with coffee shop flatware.

My husband and I had our Valentines dinner at Isabellas last night and it was great. The service was perfect, in a timely matter. I hadn't been to Isabellas for a coup;e years, had forgotten about it, then went there for my Birthday on Feb. 3rd. I had the veal with mushroom sauce which was the best meal I have had anywhere in years. This is why we decided to go to Isabellas for our Valentines dinner. We were out the door before an hour. We had great service and great food.

After many years of suffering with mediocre chain restaurant Italian food (Olive Garden, Macaroni Grill, Carinos), we decided to try the mom-n-pop, hole in the wall places. Didn't have much look with those either until we discovered Isabella's. I'll admit, the place is a hole-in-the-wall from the outside... in a strip mall nestled between a pizza joint and a hair salon. However, once inside, it has great ambiance. We were seated immediately and a waiter came to take our drink order before we could even open the menu.

Menu includes your traditional Italian dishes (pasta, chicken, steak, seafood). My wife, who is a picky eater and orders the same thing every time, LOVED the tortellini alla romana and said it's her new favorite dish!

We usually go to Isabella's for fine evening dinning, but today we went for lunch. My normal favorite is Salsiccia Campaniola , but today we tried Pollo Alla Cacciatora and Pollo Madiera. Both were excellent and very satisfying. No room for desert Mushroom soup was excellent as usual as was the pasta sides.
What a joy to have such a fine restaurant nearby. Reading the other reviews whets the appetite to try something different. Everything is so good it's hard to chose.

Isabella’s is my date night, Birthday evening, special treat for when someone special comes to town (like Amber mentioned), or when you've got gnocchi on the brain. I have always had a great experience here and you know when other people from the food service can't find anything to complain about a restaurant then you know it's in high regard! More stars please... they go 5 and beyond!

What a wonderful time! Just had a company dinner/party here, it was the most professionally handled event I have ever had the pleasure of attending. Everything went so smooth, we received incredible service, the food was outstanding and the room was beautiful!! I highly recommend this place for any meeting or function.
Job well done and Thank-You! to all of the staff at Isabellas for an amazing experience... we will be back many times I'm sure!

Hats off to Redlands ! What a fabulous evening! My husband and I checked into the Country Inn and where greeted with a wonderful room. On to Dinner. Words cannot describe the fantastic meal we had at Isabella's - Ruth and our waiter Donaldo Cruz made us feel like royalty. We enjoyed a 5 course meal, and I highly recommend the Cream of Cauliflower soup . We rolled into our room to find a beautiful flower arrangement by The Bloom Room and desert by Doughlectibles.

This was a wonderful evening away from all the stress of the everyday. We would like to give a special thanks to John and Karen Terry who with out this evening would not be possible

Dinner at Isabella's was very special: from the menu specially chosen for us to the excellent service. We were treated to an delicious 5 course meal. We finished with what must be the best creme brulee in town.

Very nice atmosphere. The staff are very courteous and attentive. The food was prepared fresh and tasteful. Great wine list, and specialty martinis. You must go, don't let the fact it is in a strip mall stop you. Once you step inside it is delightful. Reasonably priced for a dressy casual dining restaurant.

Isabella's is one of those places you like to have in you back pocket when friends or family come to town and you want to Wow them. Sunday evening ( one of my countless visits!) i had as expected a wonderful evening with such delicious food, and the Wine oh my! you really have to get a hold of Ruthie or Daniel and ask what they have "Off Menu" you will be impressed every time. and of course their main dishes are fabulous but they have extraordinary Crème Brule and Tiramisu!!! Enjoy!

Off to dinner at Isabella's where we had a friendly greeting and nothing but the best service and Italian cuisine we have experienced in a very long time. Ruthie and her staff had everything planned for us including various food courses and wine choices. Everything was followed up by two desserts that were absolutely delicious. Kudos to this outstanding restaurant. I hope they will soon be wining awards for offering customers such an exceptional experience.

I didn't know that Corona had restaurants like Isabella's. My only complaint is that the darkened windows always look like they are closed.

The have EXCELLENT food and service. Pretty surprizing since they are next to Stater Brothers. They are a nice little gem of a place and I was happy to see almost a full house on Saturday night.

This was my third or fourth visit. We had: rack of lamb (yum!), pasta pescatoria (shrimp, mussels, etc.), and a dish with spicy chicken and eggplant. Very large servings. All dinners come with soup or salad, and a bread basket. Our bill came to $91.

Support your local indepentent small business person! have a great meal!

Easily the best Italian food in Redlands. From the outside, it looks like a trashy strip mall, but on the inside it's very elegant. Try the Por Pablo if you're the kind of person who likes food that is awesome.

This was the first time I'd been to Isabella's and WOW! I had a business lunch which was perfect because we were sat at a nice big table and had privacy. The BEST part, we had gourmet food and our bill for 3 people was $30!.

Too bad there's only 5 stars to give!!! My Husband and I received a gift certificate for Isabella's and went for our Anniversary.... WOW! We were absolutely and totally impressed! I had the fillet in a wine sauce that was so tender I couldn't believe it...if you go ask for the waiter we had that night, Daniel..he made our evening special. Outstanding service and his wine knowledge was impressive and very helpful...We are going to be "Regulars" at this place!!

Great setting, beautiful art, wonderful background music. The aroma of garlic, onions and olive oil, and the tasty food, takes you away to Italy, if only for a moment. A great moment...
