    If we hadn't asked, we would have thought that Izabella's was under new ownership because this visit was unlike our other times. The restaurant is looking shabby, the tabletops in the booths were worn and should have been covered with tablecloths for dinner. We felt like we were eating in a diner. It's not inexpensive to eat here, and we never minded since the food and service was excellent. That was not the case with this visit. Please get a chef who knows how to cook Italian food. The Veal Marsala was simply weird. The veal wasn't pounded thinly enough, the sauce was a cream sauce, not a classic Marsala brown sauce. The spaghetti accompaniement was overcooked. The zucchini rounds were limp and flavorless. The veal Saltimbocca was good despite the veal being too thick, but the risotto accompaniment was overcooked. We seemed to recall the waitstaff being predominantly Italian. They were always knowledgeable about the cuisine and the wines and on top of things. The server we had was pleasant enough but did not have a good understanding of Italian cuisine and wasn't around much. We never got a water refill, for example. Oh, and the wine list is pedestrain. With so much good Italian and California wine from which to choose, it was surprising (not in a good way) to see what was on the list. Suggest you bring your own if you want something you can't find everywhere and pay corkage. There's a big difference between eating and dining. Going to a good Italian restaurant is, or should be, as much a cultural as a food experience. I have the feeling that Izabella's is on a downward spiral. I hope that I am wrong.

    We go to this restaurant whenever we are in South Lake Tahoe. We live in North Lake Tahoe. Their Lasagna is the best I have ever had. My husband enjoyed Linguini with clams. Our server was efficient, friendly and attentive to our needs. I definitely recommend Izabellas.

    Had dinner with husband and sister-in-law while visiting Tahoe. I had an entree salad with chicken which was very good. Sis had chicken picatta which she enjoyed. My husband had the chicken and ravioli which he said was not very flavorful and should have ordered the spagetti and meatballs instead. I also had a cup of minestrone soup which was really vegetable soup heavy on squash. No beans, no spinach no green beans and minimal tomatoes. Not really minestrone.

    We were hosted by Greg for the second time after last year. A venue we will come back for great Italian food at fair prices and very friendly and polite service.

    The food was overall good but I was motivated a fan of the glaze on the Caprese. Too sweet. I had the Puttanesca pasta and it was delicious. I was disappointed that they only had beer and wine. Otherwise, everything was great.

    Amazing food, enjoyed Bruschetta with fresh ingredients, garlic bread was the best I ever had. Main courses were also very tasty. We always come to this restaurant every time we visit Lake Tahoe!

    We have been to Izabella 4 times in the last month and it has been the same every time- very good food and service. It is a go-to restaurant in the area for us.
