Isabella’s Kitchen

The most picturesque spot for a glass of wine at sunset in Scottsdale just might be Isabella’s Kitchen.  The Italian country bistro is at Grayhawk Golf Club.  Savor your sips while nibbling on American Italian favorites as the last light of day illuminates the sky in shades of pink, purple, and orange.  

My friend and I were lucky to snag seats on the patio.  Growing up in South Carolina, I always loved sitting in a rocker on the patio.  I still love it to this day and squealed with delight two rocking chairs were open.  Rockers, wine, great apps, and an amazing sunset was the perfect way to relax after an adventurous day.

There are so many wonderful seating areas on Isabella’s patio with sofas and soft benches surrounding fire pits, cozy tables and chairs, and the kids will love the lush lawn to run and play to their hearts desires.  

We had planned to just stop in for wine and appetizers but could have stayed there all evening.  Isabella’s is known for their bruschetta done on homemade ciabatta bread.  

We had the pear, bleu cheese, and pine nut bruschetta along with the Burrata, blistered cherry tomato, basil, and EVOO one.  Both were fabulous.

Just writing this whisks me back to a wonderful evening of delicious eats, wine, and an incredible sunset.  Isabella’s Kitchen is high on my list for any trip to Scottsdale.

Next time I’m going for the Fish & Wine, Tacos of the Day, hand-stretched pizza, or maybe the Fusilli Bolognese made with hand cut pasta….and definitely more bruschetta while hopefully dining al fresco on another delightful night.
