After plumbing the depths of regional Italian culture in Lombardy, Tuscany, and Veneto, proprietor Kenyon Price founded Isabella’s Italian Restaurant, where chefs craft decadent dinner and lunch menus that burst with authentic Italian flavor. Guests can watch stars migrate south for the winter on one of three outdoor patios while supping on dinner entrees such as capasanta al forno ($26), an edible ensemble of baked sea scallops adorned with parmesan, garlic butter, and white-truffle aioli. Homemade noodles fuse together the casa mia italiani lasagna ($16), which is stuffed with italian sausage, ricotta, spinach, and mozzarella, and an outdoor fireplace keeps diners warm. Casual yet elegant interiors welcome diners to afternoon luncheons that showcase prosciutto ($13) and margherita ($10) pizzas.
