Inside IFC tower in Central, 5 min from Airport express check in... great setting with a great view over Kowloon... Inside and outside dining, with fresh Italian food, personalized service and relaxed atmosphere... Really nice for lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch!

The food is excellent even for me as an Italian, and the terrace offers spectacular views of Kowloon. Get the strozzapreti pasta or the truffle pizza, you won't be disappointed!

A great view to enjoy nice, but expensive food. Can be a bit busy at times and the service is variable.

Been eating at Isola since they opened their doors and it's now become comfort food. Lovely wait staff but they can help with slightly better lighting to read the menu. But then again it must be age catching up rather than the place being darker than it was more than a decade ago. Love it.

If one wants to experience Hong Kong views and have a great meal than this is a place to go. Sunday Brunch offers a well selected Italian buffet with good pizzas and an excellent anti pasta selection. On the terrace one has views over the harbor which are difficult to beat. I found the service could have been more attentive... More

Although we have been to Isola a few times, this time we did find the service a little robotic and not so friendly, however as ususal you cant fault the food in this bustling restaurant and we will definitely be back. Shame service wasnt up to scratch

A lovely pre birthday lunch with my 15 year old son. There is a stunning view from the Resturant. Food on the buffet is European delicious cold cuts, a good selection of salads, sea food, bread & cheese. There is an additional a la cart menu, we didn't have space to try it.

Carlo is the manager, and quite a manager he is! The experience is always amazing when he is around. He treated my partner and I to a glass of amazing red wine and brought out the red carpet by offering us some delicious hors d'oeuvres on the house. I have been to Isola several times, and have never been disappointed... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
