As a family we agreed that this was the best pizza we have ever had!

Despite our reservation, table was not available and the hostess could have handled the situation better. But the server was spot-on and the food is amazing!

Dined here when I was visiting family in San Diego a few days ago. Overall the experience was very positive and I would come back. We had 3 different appetizers, 4 entrees and 1 dessert. Every dish was delicious, generously proportioned and well-priced. My 23yo nephew died for the Berry Nutella Pizza for dessert. Service was very friendly, social distancing was spacious and food came in a timely manner. Only 2 minor complaints - 1. I had reserved an Outdoor table on Open Table and when we arrived there were no outdoor tables and the hostess said she didn't know when she would have one available, so we had to accept an indoor table; 2. My first choice of wine was unavailable - the waitress made a recommendation for a comparable, higher priced wine. In my opinion in this situation I should have received the alternate at the same price.

Terrific service and delicious food! We were going to an event down the street and our waitress was great about getting us our food in a timely manner and being delightful and informative in the process.

While the food and service was excellent, the noise level is too high

Service was a little slow to get started but great after that. The restaurant is small so the noise from the bar makes the rest of the restaurant noisy.

We went for the pizza, but the pasta was unexpectedly really terrific! Definitely made from scratch. Service was a bit confused, but they recognized it right away and offered us a free dessert, which we scarfed up. Our experience was overall so great that we can't wait to return.

We reside in San Diego, however this was our first dining experience at Isola. Having just returned from Italy, we thought the food was outstanding. Pizza and roasted veggies were excellent. We had the Italian wine from their vineyard in Italy which was excellent, we were impressed with the wine. The restaurant is somewhat loud, however worth the excellent food and service. We look forward to returning soon. Finally an authentic Italian restaurant in LJ.
