“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

We found this by chance and so glad we did. The restaurant is welcoming and set out lovely. Staff are friendly and professional and the menu is very reasonably priced. There were four of us dining ,all having different meals and starters. All the dishes were excellent and we would highly recommend this italian restaurant.

“Good but not exceptional”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We went to Isis on a Wednesday night and it was very quiet. The atmosphere is very modern, lots of glass and shiny metal, unfortunately not very Italian. I had the meat balls and a penne chicken dish which were OK, they were hot and reasonably tasty, but not very exciting. My wife had the sea bass which she said was too oily and mixed vegetables which we had to send back for reheating. The house red was a rather tasteless Italian that was only just acceotable. Would I go there again? Possibly but it will not be for a while.

“Great ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Great surroundings had the ribs for starters they were easily the best ribs I've ever tasted. The bolonaise on top of my calzone could have been hotter but all in all would definitely visit here again

“Nice Food & Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

We went on a very quiet Wednesday night as we wanted a place for the four of us to eat. The waiter immediately moved us to a table which was away from a large family group with young children. The menu had plenty of choices for all of us even though most of us chose the same item. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody.

“Valentines night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Along with my Fiance, we visited Isis for a valentines special, the restaurant was theme decorated in a very tasteful manner, the meal was of 3 courses with a good choice of starters, main meal and deserts, all this served by a very efficient team of waiting staff, made for a pleasant evening, I cannot review this restaurant with a mention for the excellent kitchen staff whose culinary skills were reflected in the fin quality of the food we were served.
