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

It's a treasure hunt finding this place! Head to the first main intersection north of the bell tower, Look for the ICBC building, new Times Square building, and Construction Bank building. Zero in on the ICBC building (NW corner of the intersection) and walk between it and the fire station(see pics). Stay left of the parking garage and walk into... More

We had a great meal as a family. Let me assist on directions since so many people have mentioned how hard it is to find: You need to find the intersection of the Iconic Bank building, Xian fire service, Ramada, and New Times square. Head to the corner of the big bank building and then next to it find the... More

My wife and I decided to have lunch at Isola del Nord as we saw the great reviews it had on tripadvisor but we had a very poor experience. I am of italian origins and I feel that I know what italian food should taste like and this place is nothing but italian... The risotto was horrible, more like chinese... More
