I am not a fan of shopping malls and restaurants in them but this was the second nice surprise in a row. Great food, my wife thought the gnocchi was best she had ever had, my risotto was excellent as well (make sure you ask for the parmesan) nice views of the river as well

Go there before they build something in front which takes the view away. We go there everytime we're in HKG but this time we were a bit late (4 pm) and missed the fabulous buffet and the warmer weather. Still a treat to be outside overlooking the harbor on that side.

This is a very smart place with classical Italian waiter service, white cloths and aprons on the 3rd level of IFC. Great pasta and pizza as well as a good value buffet at HKD350. The fettuccine with waygu is highly recommended. Eat out or in - either way the view is great of Kowloon and the Convention Centre down to... More

Isola is a good italian restaurant with a great buffet option at lunch time. The big outdoor seating area is shaded and offers stunning views on Kowloon.

This is a very cosy place with a trendy decoration ideally located in IFC mall. The Italian menu is simple and even if there is no the dish you are looking for on the menu, the staff in the kitchen are likely to prepare it for you if it is possible (veggie dish for example). Their Italian wine list is... More

A very disappointing evening. Overpriced and food not up to Hong Kong high end standard. Chicken was dry and tough and our choice of wine was unavailable. Service Ok but I would not bother going there again. I am particular about using my credit card and my request not to leave it out of my sight was greeted with disdane.... More

Isola in IFC mall has one of the best pizzas in HK. Thin and crispy dough with delicious toppings will make you try the whole selection on the menu! Great place but it can get a bit noisy if its too busy... Terrace is lovely when theres good weather.

I've been to Isola long time ago and I'm planning to go back, since the first time was not so great. The location is amazing, nothing to say... Spectacular view of the bay...and a wonderful terrace. I tasted a lot of dishes since we were three and we had three of each course, but actually nothing that worth to be... More

Went there for Brunch on a sunday. The restaurant itself is gorgeous. Airy spacious and a very nice upscale feel. The view outside was beautiful and there was so much sunlight coming in through the glass doors. The buffet laid out was awesome - a good mix of seafood, vegetables and meats and salad. Service was pretty attentive, but not... More
