Fantastic view of HK Harbour

Came here with HK friend. Had a view on the open terrace with clear view of the HK harbour. Good wine list and tried an Italian Barbera. We both had the angus beef prime rib medium rare which was very well done. Great atmosphere and great food.

In far east, italian restaurants usually dont meet your expectations if you are a fan of italian food.. Dont ask for risotto. It is not nice.. There are some non asian staff as well.

A quick lunch with friends and god sons before returning to Canada. Got a table for six even though no reservation but had to be out by 13.00. No problem as we arrived just before midday, Good location, professional staff and pizzas all round that scored 8/10. Prices reflect the location and probably the fact that this is a corporate...

A great place to be chic outdoors in the city with drinks and gourmet pizza among friends with a nice view. Love it.

I visited Isola twice, once for drinks on the terrace as the sun went down and once for dinner. Dinner is expensive and the food is good but not value for money. Service is average at best. The location, however, is impressive and the terrace is a great place for drinks.

Portion sizes were odd. Some starters were too large (deep fried squid and prawns) compared with others, then main courses were smaller. Food very tasty overall - delicious black ink risotto, lively seafood. Desserts good and staff accommodating to provide what we all wanted, even when not quite on the menu. The food is very pricey but was an enjoyable... More

The Italian food served in this restaurant no doubt of high quality but completely overpriced ... The truffle pizza nice thin and crispy and the lemon cream as desert probably overshadowed the pinch got when the bill came !!! Would recommend this if price is not an issue . Service was top .

Isola offers a true italian menu, a cozy environment inside (even at the counter if alone) and a nice terrace overlooking Victoria harbour with a nice view on Tsim Sha Tsuii. Service is quite good, although the large number of waiters walking around would let one expect better. Food is OK, however I would have expected a bit better considering... More

Isola is an excellent restaurant. Every time on my birthday we would go to Isola. The food there is splended. They have a great buffet or you can order. The food is so fresh and the lobster well I probably take 3-4 dishes of lobster every time. I recommend Isola for sure.

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
