“Best pizza in ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

We went to this restaurant on our first night on KI. We ordered two small pizzas and they were delicious. Accompanied by a large bottle each of KI cider... Cold and delicious...I had the Greek lamb pizza and it was very flavoursome and my husbands meat lovers was equally as good...two nights later we intended to go to the fish cafe next door however they had completely run out of food...very disappointing as there are not too many eating options in penneshaw so with no other option for dinner we again ate at Isola again with the same satisfactory results...well done to cooks and staff you run a good show with what seems consistent quality and good service under what I think sometimes to be difficult circumstances.

“Best pizza in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

There are not many options to have dinner but this place is probably the best one in town. The other restaurants are really terrible.

“Worth a two hour drive and ferry just to try...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

On our last night on KI for a friends wedding, we went to the pub for dinner but were turned away. Next stop was the fish shop, aptly named 'Fish', who's prices, portions, and service brought no joy. The last resort was a small cafe style Pizza bar called Isola's, next door.

To be perfectly honest, country pizza and coastal town pizza has never been a favorite of mine, (former pizza chef and constant pizza critic) But we didn't have much choice. After reluctantly ordering the Supreme, and taking the bench across the road, we waited.

To say I was gobsmacked when I opened the box was an understatement. Some of the cleanest, freshest toppings I've EVER had. Fresh tomato, onions, basil leaves, mushrooms, with good quality meats.

Next to zero oil. No grease on the box - that is NOT easy to achieve.

Beautiful balance of toppings with nothing overpowering.. the Sugo sauce (probably home made classic 'pizza sauce') was perfect, layed out in all its glory with a perfect weighted, crusty base. Outstanding.

I am going to attempt to nominate Isola's in the state and national best pizza award. This blows away Reynella and Gawler's formidable wood oven classics, and puts Tusmore to the test.

A serious sleeping giant. Will return. Thanks again!
