From the moment you step through the door of Trattoria Isabella, you take in the best of Italian dining within a warm ,romantic, contemporary setting. The airy restaurant features floor to ceiling windows that allow natural light to flood the space. And when the weather is nice we have a palatial patio with it’s own bar , flat screen TV’s, and quaint sidewalk café. Trattoria Isabella’s extensive menu caters to many tastes, featuring appetizers, filet mignon, chicken, veal chop, seafood entrees, and homemade pasta dishes, as well as a variety of tempting desserts. We now have our very own brick oven imported directly from Italy up and running. Executive chef, Michael Serratore, returning to his roots, has created a menu that incorporated family recipes handed down through generations, to bring the taste of traditional Italian cooking to Chicago’s Fulton river district. <br /><br />**This restaurant requires a corkage fee of 15$ for any outside liquor.

"Five of us had our after matinee dinner at Trattoria Isabella on their wonderful patio. We arrived early but were seated immediately. One of our members remarked he always enjoys coming here, good food and very convenient for us. Easy parking, near our homes. The food was excellent, veal, lamb, chicken, and pasta as well as Caesar salads, a pizza for an appetizer and a salad with octopus. We also enjoyed some gelato and
Grandmother's cake for dessert as well as a bottle or two of red wine. I am sure we will return in the future.

"Four of us dined here after we attended the theater. We enjoyed the minestrone soup and the salad. One who had the veal shank found it very tasty and tender. The rest of us found our entrees good, but quite ordinary. Having arrived in early evening, before 6 PM, we found parking on the street. Waiter was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. When we left people were lined up waiting for tables."
