We created Isabella’s Kitchen for the person who takes their food and drink seriously without taking themselves too seriously. That’s why the dress code is casual and the average ticket is very manageable. The Chef crafts the menu items from fresh ingredients. That’s just how he operates. This tried-and-true method delivers flavors reminiscent of the American Italian favorites we all grew up enjoying, with our Chef’s signature flare.
The Backyard Patio offers open-air and covered outdoor seating near two signature blue tiled fire pits, a huge grassy area, Talon course and Isabella’s Juniper-topped Feature Table overlooking it all. The Patio also offers warm touches designed to encourage guests to relax and enjoy the ambiance. Originally built around a 150-year-old Saguaro cactus, the Exterior Patio offers covered open-air dining with a fireplace, thermal shades and misters. The Courtyard serves as a versatile outdoor space to dine, drink or enjoy light fare in a casual outdoor-living setting. They managed to get awnings from Miles Ahead Blinds And Awnings which gives some much-needed shade in the summer months. It also accommodates large parties and group gatherings of up to 200 guests.
