We wanted Italian (in Xi'an - go figure). The Isola del Nord fit the bill. The food was good and plentiful but our local guest who had never had Italian did not care for it! On the 11th floor of an apartment complex, no windows for any views.

Was a bit of a tough find but definitely worth finding (good directions in some of the other reviews on this restaurant!) Ran out of arrabiatta sauce but ordered the pizza instead.. Worth trying if you want a night off from Chinese food.

We went on a Saturday evening, and it wasn't busy at all (probably because it was located upstairs in a small commercial building), so we were well taken care. We were particularly happy with the two friendly waitstaff. As for food... - pizza with homemade sausage: pizza base was nice, but the amount of sausage was scarce, and it was... More

It was slightly difficult to communicate with them due to the language barrier and since we were vegetarian, but when we did communicate with them the food turned out really good. The Pannacotta is to die for and something you must eat. The Aioli pasta with garlic was also great and the Pizza was amazing. Great people though and some... More

As many restaurants in a Chinese big city, this one is hard to find as well. Hidden on the 11th floor of an ugly office building, this nice little place is definitely worth a visit if you are looking for a good bite of Italian food. The staff is very attentive and the food is very nice !

We were famished after our trip to Muslim street, were craving for Italian, they served authentic Italian pasta and pizza. Tastes good but can do with less oil. Another flip side is they are hard to find...11th floor in an office building and no direction, we had a guide so it was easy but finding on your own with little... More

Well, quite strange experience. We saw the recommendation on Tripadvisor and decided to try this «Italian» restaurant. You need to persist and ask again and again to find the place. It's in the backyard of an office building that you can access to the building and it's on the 11th floor between offices. Down, they put a board with the... More

We have been looking for a good sit down restaurant for a date night. Isola del Nord was exactly what we needed! It is on the 11th floor of a bank building but once you are there that is unimportant. We started with a tomato and mozzarella pesto salad that was to die for. The pesto is first rate, the... More

We were hungry and tried to find a restaurant near our Hotel. After looking up in TripAdvisor we came up with this place. It was a bit difficult to find the place which was hidden in small courtyard off main street on the 11th floor. The time we got there the place was empty and we were afraid that we... More
