Description: The restaurant is typically Italian and proposes a vast culinary offer, but we are best recognized for our daily fresh fish offer. Thanks to the contacts that Mr. Viorel Nica has made, twice a week we receive fresh fish imported directly, without intermediary from the Port of Mazzara Del Vallo in Sicily. Currently Ristorante Isoletta is considered to be the best fish and sea food kitchen in Bucharest.

I was sold on this restaurant on arrival by their display of fresh fish in a fridge at the entrance. It's definitely upscale, nicely decorated with great service from an attentive staff. We started with a pasta mixed with a beef soup, a splash of virgin olive oil in a parmesan wheel and then served with grated truffles. For mains... More

This is an upscale and fancy restaurant. It is expensive. The service was great. There are many different choices on the menu. I was a little disappointed in the swordfish steak - too dry. Otherwise, it was a good time. I really enjoyed the recommended Romanian red wine, delicious.

Favorite among the nouveau riche of Bucharest, the place offers nice food but a very high prices. Good service, attentive staff, impressive wine list. It's mostly famous for fish and pasta. Nice outdoor seating on the lake shore.

If there is one place you must or can go while in Bucharest, go to this place. Setting is mediterranean , service is flawless, and food is as good as in any great restaurant in France.

I just had a business dinner at Isoletta - it was the 1st time I visited this place, and it came with great recommendation. The food was great (I had selection of spanish finger food as starter, and a steak with pepper sauce and asparagus), as expected. I was a bit disappointed by selection of non-alcoholic cold drinks - restaurant... More

Location, food and music make together an excellent Italian restaurant which has succeeded to preserve the same high quality at least for the last two years since I've been frequently going to. Isoletta is located at one of the most popular lakes of Bucharest, Lake Herastrau, offers a rich choice of Italian specialities and drinks as well as a very... More

The restaurant is located on the shores of a local lake and not far from a tennis club. There are several other restaurants around and I found access to it a little confusing. The food is excellent (very good sea food), the service is very good and the atmosphere wonderful. It all comes at a high price, especially compared with... More

Located by Herastrau lake, this gem is a must visit, delicious plates of the Italian kitchen, live music, and a scenery that can't be beaten. In every way this restaurant is excellent, take a walk in the park and then head to it for dinner with live music in action. A bit expensive, but is it is worth it.
