I was in Hongkong for a short stay and find this Italian restaurant just below International Finance Center. I eat one pizza, dont remember the name, but i think it was one of the best pizza i had eaten for a long time.

Met some friends for happy hour drinks on a Saturday at 5:30 and there was also free finger food. Delicious. Great service and view. Will be back for dinner.

Tried Isola Bar on a sunday afternoon with my family and I had a terrible experience. Staff completely unfriendly, stressed out, disorganized and felt like they have never served at a restaurant before. Terrible quality of drinks, probably the worst coffee I've ever had and we reveived a hot coffee and a cold alchoolic drink in a matter of 1-2... More

This is a pleasant restaurant serving traditional Italian recipes in IFC. Given the location, it is quite expensive but you can pay more for inferior food in Central. The atmosphere is lively but there is reasonable space between the tables. I enjoyed an excellent seafood pasta followed by a large veal chop. Both dishes were full of flavour and well... More

We’ve been at that restaurant several times. The quality fluctuates but luckily not as much as the staff. The only stable factor is the maître and we are certain, if he would leave, the restaurant would lose its flair entirely. Lately, with the new chef, the quality of food improved again and all the dishes ordered were very nice and... More

Isola has a great terrace and view, also nice interiors and pretty good service. However, the food is below average. I had a pasta dish and it was basic supermarket penne pasta with some basic tomato sauce for over $200 HKD. The pizzas are a better option. Would recommend to visit for afternoon drinks, but not really for dinner.

I popped in here after a long day sightseeing and I simply wanted a couple of glasses of fizz. The fizz was fine and the views were lovely - a great place to chill out.

One of my favourite restaurants in Hong Kong...Food is consistently awesome/ delicious and also rather large portions.There are just so many options for food lovers from a good variety of meat dishes, pizzas and pastas. I will recommend to share the appetisers, especially the fried squid, a signature dish of Isola. In a less windy and cold day, opt to... More

My wife and I happened to eat here on the 1st of January, based on the recommendation of a friend who's been here a few times. I understand that this place is crazily crowded but thanks to people probably taking it a little easy post the revelries of New Years eve, we managed to get a table for dinner. We... More
