If I could give it ZERO stars I would. We went to dinner with a group of 11 people. They tried to charge us for drinks that we did not order hoping that we would not notice. When we called them out on it they...tried to justify it. Completely dishonest!More

Wonderful dinner. Great service and fun, upscale atmosphere. Walking distance from the heart of Gustavia. Valet parking available as well. Had a fabulous experience. Going back again this week.

We were invited to dinner here by friends. On arrival, were seated quickly. We had two servers which was (in my opinion) not needed as we were only party of 5. The menu and specials were explained in thorough detail. However, it was so detailed...that we forgot everything that was mentioned. Only one person at the table ordered an appetizer, everyone else ordered a main course. The food arrived not even 10 mins later..everyones main with the appetizer for one person. What a mess with confusion. The proper thing to do is bring the appetizer first then everyones main...so that the party ate together. Lets not mention the portion size. Safe to say, i would not be returning there.More

Highly recommend this restaurant. Food is delicious from appetizers through dessert. Service is professional and friendly. Recommend the eggplant starter. The sauces are genuine and flavorful.

Amazing food in a sophisticated setting. Very friendly service, they were speaking Italian, French and English. Very attentive and helpful. We had quite a few dishes of seafood, pasta, panda cotta, tiramisu. Will be back again!

Good Italian food. Delicious eggplant parmigiana and branzino! Be careful when giving a tip! Specify the amount, not a percentage. I ask to add a 20% tip, but they ended up adding a 50% tip.

(Covid year) Our party of 9 ate here the day after Christmas. We sat at two different tables but side by side. Luckily, one table was our young adult children so it all worked out. We started off with Langostino.. So delicious!! And an order...of calamari. I had the caprese for my salad and risotto. My husband had the Spaghetti Bolognese. Also delicious. Lots of excellent wines to choose from, we had a bottle of Gaja and Sassicaia. Service was excellent!!More

Atmosphere is OK, but nothing special at all. The waiter was horribly rude and inattentive. My wine pour was half what a normal pour would be and when my husband pointed this out, we received a splash more, but still not a normal pour. Wine...also received with "Attitude". We ordered gnocchi gorgonzlo. What came was mush with a flavorless carbonara sauce, (could not even taste any parm in the sauce). I make better Italian on Tuesday nights with much more flavor than we received. And I am not Italian.More

First off this restaurant in Gustavia offers valet service which is extremely helpful if you are driving yourself. The atmoshpere inside is elegant. Service was great all around and everything we ate was excellent, especially the veal. My only complaints would be that the Italian...wines they offer are pricey even for St. Barths and they offered no real chocolate dessert. Overall a very nice experience. Recemmonded!More

I went to dinner at L'lsola and the ambience was very classy. I didn't have a dinner reservation but the host was very polite and accommodating to get me a table. I recommend making reservations. My waiter spoke good English and was pretty patient explaining...the specials and entrées. The food was amazing from appetizer to main course. Excellent wine list from moderate to expense wines. The restaurant is a must visit for great Italian food.More
