went to julia and isabella for only the second time. we asked ourselves why we don't visit more often and didn't have a good answer. the food is very good,eclectic. it would be hard not to find something to please most palates. we had potato pierogies which pleased my wife who is 100% ukranian ethnicity. meri, the owner is 1/2 ukranian. the grilled sea scallops with sesame aoli were excellent.the grilled pork chop with chipolte barbecue sauce was flavorful and moist and could easily have served two. grilled squash and red potatoes were a nice accompaniment.grilled calamari with tomatoes,cilantro, garlic and white wine over liguine was also excellent. finally very good coffee,regular and decaf that clearly are not an afterthought and canolli cake with belgian chocolate, orange, grand marnier topped off the meal. any other foodies to share their experience with this restaurant that has been around a few years and before that as an upscale deli in rhinebeck?
