A very special place with friendly staff, great food and a relaxed atmosphere. I have brought out of town guest here the two times I have eaten there and they all have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Great local place to call your own.

This was a special find. The food was fabulous, the ambiance perfect for a nice relaxing dinner with friends. It was so nice to be treated well by the staff and the owner. I would recommend this spot in this great up and coming neighborhood. I will absolutely visit it again.

The freshly made ribbon pasta was delicious and risotto special was amazing. Next time we'll have to try the pizza from the wood oven. This was our second time at Isola and it never disappoints.

New Years Eve early meal. Used to go to the place all the time when it was further downtown. Menu was good, lots of choices. We will definitely go back again.

Really great for a local spot. Price and taste are low and high for the hood. We were treated well.

I've eaten at Isola several times over the last few years. The food has been reliably inconsistent. Specials are sometimes fabulous, others just OK. Regular dishes are sometimes fabulous, others so-so. Cooks come and go, I think, is the problem. But this time the special octopus appetizer ($18) was almost inedibly tough and the special risotto with spicy salsiccia was blah. On top of that, when I brought a bottle of wine from home I was charged a $15 corkage fee.

Dined for the first time at isola and was pleased with everything my husband and I ordered from the homemade mozzarella in the caprese and fried artichoke to the entrees we shared - gnocchi and spinach and cheese ravioli in sage butter sauce. Also recommend the Nutella crepe for dessert. Only disappointment was the focaccia and chickpea hummus spread served as the bread. The bread was too dense and would have preferred good evoo instead of the chickpea hummus. But overall enjoyed my meal there and plan to return.

Great dining place. Very friendly staff. Were very happy to customize some needs we had.
Minestrone soup was exceptional. Pasta entrees were fresh and delicious. Will visit again.

We love it!! We have become regulars now as we live in the neighborhood. Great food and fantastic service. It's nice to walk into a restaurant and have everyone remember you. The lasagna is simply the best anywhere and their thin crust pizzas are amazing...they have daily specials as well. Never too crowded. Nothing fancy so just a very comfortable place to have a consistently nice meal.
