Isola Little Italy
I have vivid memories of my grandmother turning plain bread into amazing desserts, simple apples into incredible fritters sprinkled with a little sugar and honey, and even treating my sunburns with olive oil. Thirty years later, I still savor every meal and moment.
Isola is proud to serve the finest local ingredients, dalla vite, from the vine. I hope you enjoy every bite, plucked from my family tree for your table. Buon appetito!
Best pizza in little Italy in fact save yourself a trip to Italy to enjoy their pizza and just eat here. It's awesome!
Best pizza in little Italy!
Great food and service. Fun people watching outdoors.
We requested a heater, but only table avail did not have one. As soon as possible our waiter obliged us, moving one close. The food service following, was just as good....and the pizza was incredible! I am a 'crust snob' and this wood fired pie did not disappoint! The wine list had nice mix of reasonable and higher end selects, by the glass (Sangiovese @ $9 was xlnt). Will be back!
Food was amazing! I can’t wait to go back 😊 All severs were very pleasant!
The food was overpriced and nothing special. $100 for two. We had the Quattro carni pizza and pasta ragu. The pizza was watery on the inside and the crust was burnt black. The pasta sauce tasted like, you guested it, a jar of Ragu sauce from the grocery store. Outside seating is uncomfortable.
Wait staff was outstanding. Food was excellent. Polipo appetizer and fachhocia bread was wonderful. I lived in Naples Italy for 5 years so I am a tough judge on pizza. Pizza was 8/10 compared to Napoli but is better than any pizza I had in Italy outside of the Naples area. Good job. Thanks, and see you again.
Lovely service by Stefano. Terrific food as always.
There are so many great places to eat in Little Italy, but this isn’t one of them. We selected this place because it had decent reviews and we were able to get a reservation. The service was pretty non-existent. The wine was good. We ordered a bottle of cab for our anniversary. Shrimp appetizer was fine. Pizzas were mediocre. The dessert was excellent. If you want wine and dessert and that’s all, plan to be ignored if you come here. Better yet, go somewhere else.
We were forgotten about and waited 15 min before I went back to the hostess and said no one had taken our drink order yet. They were very apologetic and comp’d a dessert. The food was delicious!
Great wood fired pizza and very quick service! Menu has lots to choose from especially the pizzas.
We love their pizza as it is as close to an authentic pizza from Naples you can get. We had a waitress we have had before that is really nice and timely. We ate outside and it can get a little busy with passing foot traffic right by the tables next to the wall and the hostess stand. I would wait next time to sit somewhere else outside or in as you lose a little of the feel of a restaurant when large groups walk by, or gather or queue right next to you for half your meal.. Overall we love the place and look forward to our next dinner there.
The food was excellent both the pizza and the appetizer. The staff was very courteous and attentive.
We sat outside which was nice. The wine was delicious. Did not try any desserts but I am sure they would have been amazing. We are already planning out next trip back.
The food tasted really good! I like the outdoor seating areas, there is a good distance for safety with COVID procedures. The server was nice and helpful.
This is a nice little place right on India street but out of the chaotic central zone. For COVID they have extra tables outside, which is nice. Inside looked nice too but we chose to dine outdoors. The pizza was excellent and so was the Brussel sprouts appetizer. Both were cooked in their wood fired oven.
Isolas food is always amazing. Their crust is insanely good and the service is great.
Wonderful server. Excellent pasta and bruschetta. Pizza nice, outside seating on slanted sidewalk made it challenging to keep utensils on the table.
Outstanding Italian-style pizza from their wood burning oven. The pasta was good too - you'd better like al dente. Dessert menu looked good, but we were already stuffed. Enjoyed our service too while we sat at a table on the sidewalk. Whole street is closed off.
Our waiter was great - he had the right balance between funny, friendly, helpful and efficient. The appetizer (burrata with artichokes, prosciutto etc was incredibly delicious. The pizza menu is creative and interesting - hard to choose! The rest of the food was solidly good, pretty and cooked well.
This is fall 2020, so we ate outside in the street, which is not ideal, but we all get it. It is fun to watch people go by and so it just made it one of the nicer memories of this stupid year.
It is also a good value, prices were very fair for the the food received. Pinot Grigio at $10 per glass was also nice. I would both go back and recommend.
The food was ok the service excellent maybe I should of try something else
Love this place! Food is always great! Service was great as well!
Our waitstress was awesome!! Very attentive and even remembered that I mentioned it was my boyfriend's birthday in the comment section when I made the reservation :) The pizza was soooo good 😋
I am not sure what happened, but my husband and I went there on Saturday night at 5:10. We had a reservation. They sat us right away which was great, but then ignored us for the next 40 minutes. We never had anyone come take our drink order or food order. We just sat there while everyone around us was getting their food. We mentioned it to the woman filling our water and asked her to get our server, but still they never came. We just walked out and went to a different restaurant down the street. If I had a piece of advice, even if you are busy, please acknowledge that you will be there in a moment or that you at least see me. It felt really strange and honestly I didn't want to give my money where I am not a valued customer.
Great service and yummy pizza! Tables if possible can be moved from busy walkway.
I realize with COVID that outdoor dining is the only option, but our table was on the sidewalk, so we had to deal with constant pedestrian traffic right next to our table. It made it extremely difficult to relax and enjoy the food.
The food and service were very good. But the ambience is so poor. I don’t think I could dine there again until it’s back indoors.
The food is always wonderful and the service equally good. Staff have always been accommodating and absolutely on top of it. We love their n pizza crust - the best!!
We had a great first time here! The food was delicious and service was on point. Thank you Rebecca, for being our awesome server and making this a great dining experience. We had prosciutto with mushrooms pizza!
One of the top three best wood fire pizzas I’ve ever had. Right up there with Atillios in Naples and Pizzana in Brentwood/Hollywood. Definitely recommend Isola to anyone coming to SD little Italy.
Service was exceptional. Thank you Stefano!
Our waitress was super friendly and helpful! The Margherita DOP pizza was amazing and I would definitely come back again!
The staff was super friendly and accommodating. They food was great!! Will definitely be back and I’m sure post-covid sitting inside will be even better.
Very good service and great food. Love coming here.
The pizza was outstanding, especially the sauce. Our waiter, Stefano, was wonderful! What a warm, kind, great guy. We had an awesome experience!
We always enjoy ourselves at Isola. The food is excellent; so many Italian restaurants to choose from in Little Italy but i think this is one of the best. The pizzas are so good! It's casual which is nice and a short walk from our condo. Stefano is my favorite waiter because he's always courteous and attentive and has great recommendations.
Pasta was delicious and full flavored.
Enjoyed an evening dining al freco! Food was delish and service was great. A great way to safely enjoy an evening out during these crazy times.
Excellent in every regard.
Back patio lacks ambiance plus we were right next to the dumpster so this area needs attention. But we did request an outdoor table and that was all that was available at the time so it was partly on us.
Stefano was an excellent waiter and the food was terrific. We will be back and I highly recommend this restaurant.
Fantastic dining experience.
