Nice little outdoor patio. Decent wine list. Very nice service. Minestrone was very good. I came for the pizza but was so disappointed. The toppings were totally uneven and the crust was so floppy. My first few bites just tasted off - possibly the combination of ingredients- mushrooms did not seem fresh. I love wood fired pizza that has the taste of char with a nice firm crust - this pizza was definitely not for my taste.
Delicious food every time. Vegetarian choices, contemporary healthy Italian. Good wines! Love eating outdoors. Great friendly service!
Such a nice place. Laid back, great ambiance, fantastic food. The happy hour starters and $5 margherita pizza is a deal, and their pastas, pizzas, and desserts are all excellent. Very fair price, large servings!
We drive 90 minutes from Orange Country just for you pizza as often as we can. Love both locations, NEVER disappoints!!!!
Great vibes & the sweetest waitress
Loved the food! My husband enjoyed a green salad and the mussels. I had the small plate of burrata with arugula and the Caico e pepe. Both were perfect! The best food we had during a week in San Diego!
Great casual Italian restaurant with a nice variety of delicious pizza and antipasti. Servers were friendly and responsive. Barbera d’Alba wine from vineyard associated with the owners was excellent.
This place is amazing! The best pizza I have ever had. The patio is so nice and charming with the lights and really warm with the heaters. Can't wait to come back!
Love the food and service here. My go to place for dining with family and they are dog friendly
It was my daughters birthday- we loved everything.
OUTSTANDING FOOD, SERVICE AND AMBIANCE
We loved Isola! Will definitely go back! The homemade pasta and wood fire pizza was amazing!
You will find very authentic Neapolitan style pizza at this local gem. You will also find fair prices, an all Italian wine list, a laid back La Jolla vibe and attention to quality. Five stars.
The food was so fresh and tasty. Loved the wine list. Our servers were so kind and fun too!
One of us arrived at 4:45 and the others at 5. The wait person was nice to allow us to order some happy hour items. We finished with a light dinner of pizza and salad. All was well prepared and delicious. It was a cold Thursday evening, so there was only one other outdoor group. Others were inside. We enjoyed the heater, and until the fuel was used up, we were toasty warm and comfortable. We will return to Isola since we really do like being there.
So so so good! This is my second time at this place and its definitely the BEST PIZZA i’ve had in San Diego
We love the pizza and pasta, so fresh! This was our first time dining in and it was so nice to sit inside and enjoy our meal.
The food was delicious and we loved the atmosphere there. I highly recommend trying the mussels as an appetizer. It’s probably one of the best mussels, I’ve ever had. The entrees were also amazing as well. Highly recommend going.
We were seated within a few minutes of our check-in. All staff were very attentive and friendly. The food is amazing and we have been extremely pleased with our meals on both occasions we have visited Isola.
Very slow service. Pizza was soggy
Isola is a little "gem" in La Jolla. Love this place. The servers & staff are terrific, & the food is excellent. Very pleased with every meal we have had & go back again & again.
We consider this our local go- to option for authentic pizzas and excellent Italian food. The kids inevitably order a pizza (or two) and the rigatoni ragu. The squid ink pasta is outstanding. Good options on the wine menu for a glass or a bottle. Great place, good value neighborhood restaurant.
Love Isola La Jolla! nice area and outdoor seating options, food is amazing! HH specials very good and affordable. Waitress from Brazil was great!
Terrible. My girlfriend immediately got sick after eating here. Service was great but the quality of the food was horrendous.
Everything we ordered was great. Will absolutely return!
It was a very good restaurant, service was alright. Nothing bad just not the best as expected for being in La Jolla. The food though is really worth every dollar especially the pasta.
Everybody was so nice and the food was amazing. We brought our 1.5yr old for outdoor dining and everyone felt like family, talking with her and us. It was a great experience. If you are debating coming here, trust that you won’t be disappointed.
Was our first time and now I can’t understand why we didn’t find this gem sooner. Nice little curbside outdoor dining area. Food was fantastic. New Italian favorite. Only note: felt like tables still too crowded to feel safe.
We were so impressed with how attentive all of the staff were. The restaurant was quite busy but everyone still made sure we were well taken care of, even changing the propane tank when the heater went out with a smile (behind the mask). It’s a tough time for restaurants and their staff these days but the folks that work at Isola made our visit so pleasant and inviting. We will definitely be back!
Like always we get good service and amazing food. Highly recommend it!!
Waitress got order wrong. Brought food in the incorrect order so we ended eating starters and main together as well as the wrong food in two cases.
It was great! We can’t wait to go back. : )
Great place. Loved the food and the service was excellent. Thank you Monica for taking such great care of us!
My hubby and I enjoyed our "date night" at Isola. Food was yummy, nice wine selection and really good service. Would definitely recommend for a casual night out!
Really amazing food either even better service!
Great food and service! Authentic Italian food, and everything was reasonably priced.
Really excellent food. The cannellini bean appetizer was outstanding and the pizza was cooked perfectly. Great, great service.
I love this place, food is just amazing
Great food! Had the squid ink noodles and it was great!
Best was the roasted vegetable salad with goat cheese!
Definitely want to try the Pizza next time !
