Let's Rehearse!

Curtis and I finally picked a Rehearsal Dinner location! After discussing with his parents, we have all decided on the incredible Isabella's Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar. We are so lucky to have our rehearsal dinner there as it's the perfect combination of class, great food and top-notch service. :)

Isabella's is located at Legacy and 121 in a beautiful Piazza overlooking a large fountain. The restaurant reminds us so much of Italy as it's charming and beautiful, elegant but comfortable. We'll have the main dining room to ourselves, which is so nice, so we'll be able to say our thank you's without half of the diners listening in. :) Here are a few pictures!

And here's the delicious menu options we'll have to choose from! All of these are wonderful and we couldn't believe how big the portions were. Italians definitely do not skimp on their food! :)

Appetizers- served family style

Assorted Pizzas- Prosciutto, Bianca, Margherita, Pollo, Salsiccia

Calamari e Fritti- Crispy calamari served with lemon & spicy tomato sauce

Bruschetti- Grilled bread with oven dried tomatoes topped with pesto and goat cheese

Entree Options

Penne Pasta con Pollo- Penne pasta with chicken, artichokes, zucchini, sundried tomatoes in a light basil broth with pesto and parmesan

Penne alla Primavera- Penne pasta in a sauce of peppers, zucchini, squash & asparagus

Pollo Arrosto- Herb roasted chicken breast served with cipollini onions, haricot vert, soft polenta with a Marsala sauce

Spaghettini alla Pomodoro with Pollo Griglio- Spaghettini pasta with a natural tomato sauce made with garlic & basil and chicken

Bolognese con Papparelle- traditional sauce of ground beef, veal and pork served with pappardelle pasta

Gnocchi con Quatro Formaggio- homemade gnocchi finished with four cheeses

I can't say enough great things about this restaurant! The food is fantastic, the service is wonderful and the location is perfect. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful restaurant for our rehearsal dinner and I can't thank Curtis' parents enough for allowing us such a luxury.

Now I can bust out the Gocco again and start making the invites and menus!
