Great Italian

This place is very cute and had very good italian food, which one does not expect on the islands. It was also very cozy. A great place for a date.

You will find one of the best Italian restaurants in the World in St. Barths! The food it's simply amazing and you will find one of the best wine lists in the whole island.

This was our final restaurant experience on St. Barts but not by choice. We actually made reservations to eat here a second night as we were finishing dinner the first evening we dined here. Unfortunately, my wife got too much sun and we couldn't make it. But enough about us because this Italian oasis on a French island is incredible.... More

Octopus appetizer was bland. Lobster pasta was good. Unlike Bonito they didn't rush us and we had a nice evening of fun. Reading St. Barth reviews indicates that most reviewers are unaccustomed to fine dining and great food or they are in a vacation fantasy (that's good). Come to NYC or Paris to experience great dining.

London based so have an abundance of great restaurants. But with all the choice I continue to crave the wild boar sauce and artichoke salad we enjoyed this month at L'Isola. Both dishes were sophisticated but not over complicated. Wonderful taste, stunning setting. Simply the best place to eat Italian in the Caribbean by far.

... But now we will certainly be back. On previous trips, we always decided against eating dinner here. Too many good restaurants and couldn't think of having Italian while here. That was a mistake. Beautiful restaurant with some of the best service we have had anywhere on the island. The food was amazing. Bone in veal chop with sage butter... More

My husband and I have been to this restaurant on numerous trips. We have yet to have a disappointing experience. No matter how busy the island is, L'Isola manages to get everything right. We absolutely love the modern vibe. It's like eating in a popular NY restaurant but in St. Barts. The service is outstanding as well, as is the... More

The food and the wine were perfect. Wait staff was attentive and not what we expected in St Barths but it was the a super experience. Highly recommend it!

We might not have gone here if it hadn't been so highly recommended. Italian in St. Barth's? You walk into the beautiful front room and think: "This isn't St. Barth's." No sea views. All dark woods and old world ambiance. But your reservations are lifted away immediately. All of the wait staff are from Rome, as far as I can... More

My lady has been coming here for some years and it was her recommendation that we choose it for a Saturday night. Unfortunately, we could only get a table at 7PM but the accommodating head waiter encouraged us to have a drink at the bar. We had selected the best corner table; our man said he would let us know...
