Amazing Italian food

I have to admit I was taken aback being greeted in Italian in the French West Indies so close to home in North America. I got over it really quickly as the waiter brought a most amazing fried polenta with mascarpone dip along with our cocktails. From there, we enjoyed prosciutto e melone and a... read more

We visited here the last night of my birthday trip and after reading that it was the same owners of one of my local joints back in Santa Monica, I was excited. We walked in during an epic downpour and were seated at a perfect booth in the corner. The decor is sexy, the vibe is perfect and it's just... More

We've heard for many years we should go to I'sola and we finally committed on this trip. We were very happy we did finally go. We loved it so much we went back a second time. Not easy on the wallet, but well worth the splurge! We loved our server Ricardo and his wife Anna (bartender and manager). We were... More

Great dining experience. Very good food and atmosphere in the restaurant. On the high end in terms of cost but in this case you get what you pay for. Highly recommend.

L'Isola is classy, happening, sexy, and romantic. The food is more than delicious. Service is GREAT!!!!!! Must try this Rose wine : Whispering Angel (currently my favorite). The Chef is the same one from L'Isoletta (must go for lunch or if you are craving pizza).

Better than in Rome. The food, service and atmosphere are fantastic. In Gustavia this is the best restaurant if you are looking for good food. It is not cheap but worth every penny. Don't miss it.

Yes it's a bit loud but not a problem. The fact is on a Sunday night at the end of April this place was packed and buzzing. The service was outstanding and the food excellent. I have been coming to this island for 30 years and have seen many restaurants come and go, some very good one's too. This place... More

So delicious! The minute you enter that dining room you will be transported to Tuscany. The room is lively, warm and dimly lit. Perfect for a romantic evening. The hostess was so lovely and pleasant. Despite it being extremely busy, she seated us early at a nice table. The fried polenta and gorgonzola dip offered complimentary from the chef was... More
