Our visit was not planned & was based on 1. Us being hungry 2. A nice smell circulating outside 3. Was close. Afternoon watching footie, few pints followed by a lovely pizza each & a pleasant glass of red. Last time I was in this restaurant it was called something else but I will be going back. Really enjoyed the... More

Booked very last minute on a Friday evening as we decided to go out on a whim. The place appeared quite small, but it was perfectly acceptable and actually nicely cosy. The waiters were very pleasant and attentive, however it wasn't particularly busy. We were well looked after and offered another bottle of wine quickly when the first one ran... More

I visit Isola regularly, and have only had one bad experience (with some confusion over a complex order). Food is very good, and the wait staff are absolutely fantastic. One waiter in particular always goes above and beyond, but sadly I can't recall his name. Prices are average for the area, and the food is very good.

Isola is a favourite restaurant of ours and is one we frequent when we are able to. The restaurant itself has a nice friendly and relaxed atmosphere with lots of small dining areas providing privacy or simply a smaller dining area. The menu provides lots of variety and something to please the majority of palates. The Calzone is excellent, I'd... More

We routinely frequent Isola and my favorite dish is their calzone. I've asked for them to not cook the calzone so long (I like my dough a bit doughy) and they agreed to do so, making them even better. Whenever they have manx queenies and bacon on the menu, have it as well as a starter.

An interesting restaurant with a number of small dining areas scattered throughout the building. Menu choices were excellent with a wide variety of food on offer which was very tasty. Customer service was good - had an enjoyable evening and would recommend.

I troubled to book anywhere for a Saturday night (short notice), managed to book a table at Isola. We were sat downstairs (which was like an oven) directly under the stairs with no headroom. Was unsure about ordering a bottle of wine as there was limited Rose choice so I ordered by the glass.... first glass was a small (gone... More
