We read most of the reviews and said, 'this should be the one'. And it was not. First of all totally over priced for what you get. Even if you are willing to pay that crazy money, service should be top notch. Guess what, the very first answer my wife received when she wanted to change an ingredient in the... More

This is probably the best restaurant on the island. Beautifully situated in an old building and delivering exceptional food to the table. Highly recommend

L'Isola was recommended by a regular St.Bart's visitor. We had high expectations based on who recommended this restaurant. Our expectations were met and then some. The restaurant is elegant, dark and intimate despite tables be very close together. Candles are the main source of illumination. The waiters have a little attitude but nothing to complain about. It kind of goes... More

Amazingly authentic italian food in a beautiful atmosphere with excellent service! We were four in our party and split two pasta dishes - and without even asking - the kitchen gave us 4 plates, each with the two pastas on it. The food itself was excellent!

While visiting St Barths we were looking for a unique dining experience from the typical St Barths menu offerings. L'Isola offers a basic Italian menu but with true Italian offerings paired with a few local favorites. Their menu offerings was provided with amazing service. Their staff, mostly Italian, were extremely knowledgeable about every aspect and nuance of the menu. Additionally,... More

Everyone else has said all the good things and I would just repeating. On an extremely rare occasion when on a small island, you get what you pay for. On all fronts this restaurant is superb.

Then to L'Isola for a romantic dinner. Service was well paced, dining room beautiful and delicious food. They have proven good good can be done in St. Bart.... More

I am loyal fan of Via Veneto, L'Isola's sister restaurant in Santa Monica, so I was looking forward to sampling the St. Barth venue. It did not disappoint and in fact it is remarkably similar in quality and style to the nigh standard executed by the Santa Monica location. As with Via Veneto, the food is outstanding; the waiters are... More
