It’s cosy, it’s familiar and it’s downright satisfying at Isabelle’s Woodfired Oven Pizzeria. As you may have guessed, this family-friendly eatery alongside Bow Bowing Canal on Airds Road southwest of Sydney serves up authentic Italian pizzas, still singing and cracking from the hot wood-fired oven. Portion sizes are generous so they’re easy to share, and combinations range from classic Italian to modern Australian to Isabelle’s own gourmet specialties, so you’re bound to find plenty to please everybody in the family or group. Don’t be fooled, though, Isabelle’s is not only about the pizza. There are plenty of other Italian standards across the board, from salads to veal mains, gnocchi sorrentina to dainty desserts. Located less than a minute’s walk from Leumeah station, Isabelle’s is easy to reach and a chance for a fabulous family meal if the opportunity pops up.
Food was OK but service was poor. We had 8 people squashed into a space for 6. No one came to take our drink or food order until we eventually called them over. We were finally served jugs of soft drinks but then had to ask for glasses. No one asked if we were enjoying our meal or if we needed anything the whole time we were there. After completing our meal, we again had to wait for our plates to be cleared. It seemed that the take-away orders were more important. They were however very obliging in supplying us with plates and cutlery for the cake we brought. On the whole, a disappointing evening.
Enjoyed the food so much we went again the next night. Pizza's were delicious - base was just how I like it from the woodfired oven. Our party also has the spaghetti and the schnitzel which were also delicious.
This is a top place for a family meal. Terrific wood fired pizzas and friendly service. Good value for money and quiet on week days in store as they are mainly doing home deliveries.
