My name is Isabella and Italian Street Kitchen is my restaurant.
A little bit about me: my family has lived in Rome for generations. We’re true Italians and very proud of our heritage.
We’ve always been in the restaurant business, and I grew up sitting in the dining room while Mamma and Papa prepared the food. As soon as I was old enough, I was waiting tables and chatting to our guests whom we considered family!
Over the years, I’ve seen how things have changed. Today, people my age still want amazing, delicious food, but they want it in a more relaxed setting than the traditional restaurants from my childhood.
So when I turned 30, I decided it was time for me to open an Italian restaurant that my friends and I could really connect with.
My vision was to have a casual space that pays homage to the vibrant, bustling and cosmopolitan cafes and eateries of Italy’s side streets. A space where people could watch the chefs in the kitchen and smell the incredible aromas of quality Italian food. A space where Italian food traditions and contemporary dining experiences intermingle.
That’s how Italian Street Kitchen was born.
I like to think of ISK as my kitchen on my street – and I’d love for you to join me for a meal!
