Great food in this cozy and elegant atmosphere. Very upscale but not stuffy. Had a wonderful waiter and excellent service.

I have no idea how this place can have negative reviews. My fiancee initially refused to go here because he didn't want to eat Italian in St Barths but I convinced him to try and we couldn't have been happier. We will defiantly come back. The service was A+. The food was amazing and well thought out. You could tell... More

This was our third visit to L'Isola and, out of a week of dining in St. Barth, the biggest disappointment. While the food was acceptable (although not worth the prices by any means), the service was horrible. We had noticed this a bit on our last visit but this time it was clearly worse. We also observed the same level... More

First of all, in reply to seasonedtraveller, I have no idea where you ate but it was not Isola! I come from the NY area and have been to the some of the best restaurants and Isola is definitely one of them. Riccardo, Anna, Dario EVERYONE is fantastic. From the minute you walk in the door until you leave, you... More

We called for a 7.00 pm reservation on the same day we hoped to go. We were greeted graciously and taken to a beautiful corner table which was perfect for people watching. The list of specials was impressive as is the regular menu. The grilled calamari in a white wine and lemon sauce was so melting tender and flavorful we... More

Four of us ate dinner here, as we were marking a significant anniversary and wanted somewhere special to celebrate it.The restaurant is situated in the centre of Gustavia, but has no outdoor space, which is a bit disappointing as the town is so pretty. Although we booked well in advance we were offered a table by the kitchen or by... More

This came highly recommended by both TA and our hotel. The service was not at all Italian but very American. We were rushed into ordering our meals which seemed unnecessary as the restaurant was just about a quarter full. Within minutes of placing the order and while we were still discussing the wine our starters arrived. At this point the... More

Nice Italian restaurant in St Barth's. Glad it was raining as the restaurant is quite dark with no views. The food is quite good & the staff fairly attentive. Nothing exceptional but was relaxed & charming.

The concierge at the Hotel Christopher highly recommended L'Isola, and we were not disappointed. The food was spectacular, the restaurant was beautifully decorated with great views, and the service was impeccable.
