Isabella's is one of our favorite Frederick restaurants. We always order from the tapas menu although other items on the menu are very good. The sangria is good, with seasonal flavors like peach.

We stopped in for a late dinner of tapas. Our server was very attentive. We LOVED the the seafood paella. OMG! The pork belly sliders good, flavorful. The tomato and mozzarella, not so much. We will return!

I love the tapas concept and enjoy visiting Isabella's with friends. We like to try different items each time we go, but always enjoy the asparagus spears and the paella. My only minor complaint is that the server sometimes doesn't return to the table quick...More
