As a return of a favour, we went here on a whim and were glad we did as it was a very enjoyable experience. My wife's lobster pasta and the pasta with truffles were big hits. The view of Kowloon at dusk and the light display made it even better!

Visited this restaurant recently for a business dinner and the ambiance of the restaurant is very nice and the views are also great. The service is good and the food was sent over quite quickly and everything we ordered was delicious. However this is an expensive restaurant and I would easily say that per person you can estimate 1000 HKD... More

I have visited this Italian restaurant often in the past, however on this last occasion I reflected on the overall experience, which is average, The view is the key point here to visit is the view. The food is not cheap and at $140 for extra ham on a pizza do not expect anything for nothing.

The first courses and dessert come in buffet style and were excellent, meat as main course was not very good, the ambient, the terrace and the view are great

This restaurant has an amazing view of Victoria Harbor and Kowloon, however the food is of average quality and service leaves much to be desired. I don't mind paying a lot for good food, but when I do pay a lot, I expect great food and great service. Isola needs to go back to the basics of customer service. Our... More

Disappointing for Hong Kong. In the IFC building with a great view across to Kowloon, the nice outside terrace was spoilt by two very large and very rowdy tables of expats all smoking, the inside was predictably freezing. Service was pretty hit and miss. Having said they had Peroni beer (reasonable to expect in an Italian restaurant) , it took... More

Very good italian (and some med) food; service was very patchy - avoid if you are planning a meal with a key client; you will likely be following up with them on your order

Conveniently located near shops and piers, the restaurant is a good dining place. It is better to make reservation as seats inside in the air-conditioned area are limited. The semi-buffet lunch is recommended. Dishes from the salad bar are very refreshing. There are some five choices of main dishes. The steak and salmon are among the best. Don't miss its... More

I've been here many times now, always great service, good food and of course the views. There is also a bar upstairs and light meals may be ordered here. It's very central near shops and the piers. Will be a favourite of mine. The price is medium to high, but that is to be expected.
