Grazie mille! We’re opening 10.11.12, and here’s what you’ll find when you get here:
- Comfy Italian fare – you know, pizza, meatballs, spaghetti, all your favorites
- Comfy furniture – indoor, outdoor, by the fireplace, by the bar wherever you want to sit and stay awhile
- Comfy clothes – we’re going to be comfortable while we serve you, you should be too. Wear whatever you like.
- City lights – we couldn’t work “comfy” into the description, but the views will be spectacular
Located across the street from the main entrance of Grayhawk Golf Club, the appeal of the rustic, peasant-style cuisine rests on simple recipes and presentations allowing the fresh ingredients to take center stage. And the wine menu is populated with a variety of California and Italian selections.
Styled after an Italian country bistro with an artisan’s edge, this vine-covered, roadside retreat houses several distinct indoor and outdoor seating options ranging from the traditional four-top to the unique fireside picnic tables on the Backyard Patio overlooking Grayhawk’s Talon course and the Valley below.
The interior features a colorful, eclectic and electric blend of old and new with comfortable furnishings, numerous TVs, wood floors, wine barrels and rusted-steel accents. Isabella’s comfortable atmosphere welcomes diners to relax and stay for awhile. Dress code is casual with an average entrée price of $14. Take out is welcome.
The Dining Room opens to the Courtyard and exterior terraces by way of several large roll-up doors. Isabella’s signature Blue Bar wraps around a corner of the building, allowing for outdoor seating as well as indoor seating.
The Backyard Patio offers open-air and covered outdoor seating near two signature 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. They may unwind on one of a handful of rocking chairs; or perhaps, fill a picnic basket with a selection of meats, cheeses and wine to enjoy while lounging on the neatly manicured lawn.
Built around a 150-year-old Saguaro cactus with its arms reaching through an overhead trellis, The Saguaro Room offers covered open-air dining with a fireplace and air conditioning for warmer days.
The Courtyard serves as a versatile outdoor space to dine, drink or enjoy light fare in a casual outdoor-living setting.
The Rooftop is perched above the Snack Shack – a unique place to enjoy a glass of wine with friends while overlooking 360 degree views of the Talon course and Valley lights below.
