Don't let the service dissuade you

Legendarily rude service and inflexible attitude should not dissuade you from what is great food and coffee. I tend to take a zen attitude to the over the top Italian manners and just enjoy it as part of the experience. As long as I don't try to add anchovies to a non-anchovy pizza it's fine.

It's a little bit of Italy on Magnetic Island. Fantastic flavours and italian music. Just don't ask for pineapple on your pizza.

Ordered at 6.45, got our pizza's at 8. We watched a family sit down, order, eat and leave- all before we got our pizza. Though it was delicious, the service was really average. They were quite apologetic, giving us 3 free gelato's (amongst 4 people)... And it was busy... But we did expect better

The pizza is fantastic, simple as that. If you want exceptional pizza you will get it here. Menu is huge, prices are fine & service was great. A lot has been written about this place & in particular the owners. Some very nasty negative comments. Don't listen to all this rubbish. We have been there twice & found them friendly... More

We stayed at Arcadia for 3 nights and each morning came here for breakfast. The eggs were done to perfection and the bacon was crispy. To finish this off the coffee was excellent. We thought the prices were reasonable for a big breakfast and very comparable to places in Townsville. The service was quick and everyone was very friendly.

Delicious pizzas and gelati, definitely worth a visit but a bit on the expensive side. Lovely spot to sit for a nice lunch or dinner opposite Geoffrey Bay in Arcadia, and overlooking the pool at the resort. Definitely the best pizza on the island made in a wood fire oven.

I have read some of the bad reviews for this restaurant and can safely say my experience has never been bad in the 5 or 6 times I've eaten at Caffe Dell' Isola. I have only ever been for lunch or dinner and the pizza has been absolutely incredible every time I've eaten there. Mind you, I have never asked... More

Hard to believe they're still around, although I did see a sign that said the business was for sale. I see why! I went on a Saturday night, looking forward to some Italian food or pizza, only to find nobody even there. The waitress sat at a table talking to two people, who I just assumed were friends...they didn't seem... More
