“Love this place.”
Reviewed 25 December 2012

Gianni is fantastic and his wife Patrizia is an awesome cook. I lived in Italy for about 7 years and go back often...the food at Isola Bella's is authentic Italian and it's amazing. Usually restaurants in germany seem to cook Italian food to German tastes (sort of like what we do to Chinese food). None of that here. The pizza is just as it is in Italy, the pasta is amazing and the specials...just take his word for it and order. The steak is also fantastic.
I've also used this restaurant for "going aways" for work and get togethers for our now defunct cycling club. Always great.
Gianni speaks english as well as Germans and really appreciates the business from all of his customers.
The staff is also super friendly. We go back on a weekly basis just to have the pizza and it's about 30 minutes from our house. Do yourself a favor and try it.

“Completely authentic Italian!”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

Gianni is an amazing person, and has been cooking authentic itailian since he was fourteen. All of his ingredients are fresh from markets, and he uses nothing from cans for anything.vits all homemade, and delicious. I got there at least once a week, if not more. Always ask what his special of the day is!

“Amazing Carryout Pizza”
Reviewed 18 December 2011

We just moved into town and are trying the village restaurants. Isola Bella is close enough to walk to, so it was first on our list. We were pleasantly surprised when they offered delivery and carry out service. We have actually not eaten in the restaurant but have had delivery and carryout service numerous times.

I have to say, the pizza is the star of the show. Traditional thin crust with more then enough combinations to please anyone. We haven't had a single pizza we don't like. We tend to be traditionalists, Margarita and pepperoni our the two types we can always agree on. Both are excellent and large enough to split with a salad and bread order.

I have tried some of the baked pasta dishes as well as the pizza. They are not as good as the pizza and the ham and tortellini was a total disaster thanks to the oily sauce and gristly ham. I've also tried the spaghetti bologna and found the meat gristly and the pasta overcooked.

We stick with the pizza and salad and enjoy it every time. This is a regular on our rotation. The prices are fair, the pizza and salat is excellent, and to order carry out we've never waited longer than 20 minutes for our order to be ready. Service is always friendly and quick.
