I've took only the Cesar salad but it was outstanding! The salad Zorg a superb wine from Sicily, the Planeta will make that I will never forget the outstanding dining experience! It is absolutely a nice quiet place near Holborn underground station that you better not miss in London! Enjoy good Italian food, enjoy Isolabela.

Very nice Italian. Food was first class if a little expensive, but it is London so it can be expected. Very nice, attentive staff. Good choice menu.

As a young couple we have visited this restaurant once or twice before a night out in London. We found the service to be excellent with the staff very friendly and welcoming. The food was good and if you like a bit of spice in your Italian then definitely get something with chilli in it as it is very strong!... More

Visited with a friend for a long leisurely catch up. We had a great table close to a window and were far enough away from a large group of diners not to be. Other end by them. This place is popular with large groups so I think it would be difficult to go there on a night when there isn't... More

The food, service and atmosphere at Isolabella does not disappoint. I visited last night with friends, and we shared a tasty chilli garlic prawn starter. I had the handmade ravioli to follow, which was cooked just right. This was followed by the homemade apple pie (recommended by our waitress) which was delicious. The choice and quality of the wines are... More

Once again Isolabella didn’t disappoint. The food, wine and service were all excellent and contributed to a great night. I’d have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant to anyone who wanted to experience authentic Italian food and service.

this is like home cooking it's big portions you wont go hungry, and it's fresh and fun. The team is freindly and it feels a little like home when visiting, it's cozy and the house red is good. It doesnt look as appealing, but the prices are good and the number of guests who frequent it shows how popular it... More

we were recommended this restaurant by our hotel which was a few minutes walk. The place has a warm and cosy feel, what we liked is that tables were not jammed together giving people their own space. The menu has all the usual Italian dishes that you would expect to see, the food is cooked to order. The food was... More

We booked this hotel for our 3rd night in London as it was close to the Premier Inn and we knew by that time we would not want to travel far. I wish we had booked it for an earlier night as we were so tired and full from our previous meals we could not do it justice and only... More
