Isola Bella

Half café, half boutique, and all urbane, stylish little Isola Bella offers choice accessories, designer chocolates, and a small menu of rustically elegant noshes within a lovely, villa-like setting. Simple pastries, grilled panini, and well-appointed salads make fine light fare, but our favorites are the tiny sandwiches, including herbed grilled chicken or sheer prosciutto, each served with fresh mozzarella, Pecorino Romano, and an assortment of marinated veggies. Enjoyed with a glass of vino or an imported birra, the meal's size may be petite, but the flavors are XXL.
