Isabella's serves up convenient, tasty, slightly upscale Italian food just minutes from campus. Located in front of Stop'n'Shop, this restaurant can seem a little pricey, but the solidly delicious food (with salad and yummy bread included) is worth it. The best bet for students is a mix'n'match pasta menu where you choose from a variety of pastas, sauces, and toppings. An even better bet is to go on Tuesdays, when your student ID will get you 10% off.
The portions are large, generally enough for lunch the next day. Service is generally found to be attentive and fast, but some have found it disappointing. Consensus is that it's no [[#Elizabeth's|Elizabeth's]], but at slightly cheaper and much closer it might not have to be to be worth visiting. You may miss the clam sauce linguini, but a variety of other sauces and the calamari and spinach-stuffed eggplant are recommended in lieu. The food isn't bad, but in this poster's opinion, not worth the price. Not enough variety on the menu, and the food was distinctly average. The service was good and the atmosphere was nice, but in the future I'd stay home and make my own pasta, since with an online recipe and about 30 minutes I'm sure I could come up with something more interesting.
Affordable wine is served, once in some months, the restaurant has a wine and food-tasting event -- call for dates and rates.
