    The food (meatball app and pasta dishes )was amazing and our server, Nick, was friendly and attentive. The seating is a little bit tight but quite bearable when the food is so good. Looking forward to going back to try the pizza and Caesar salad. And will definitely order the meatballs again!!

    Lasagna and Cavatelli with sausage and hot oil is excellent as is apple crisp. Can’t go wrong with any of the pizzas. Seating is very tight, no good if near sneezing leppers or simiiar.

    The wait staff is very accomadating and friendly. They will offer recommendations if you cant decide. The food is very good. We split the calamari which was excellent and very tasty. My stuffed shrimp was cooked to perfection and came with mixed vegetables. We also had bronzino which was enough for two meals and tasted wonderful.

    We had another wonderful experience. Service, food and setting were all very good. Reason for not giving an outstanding rating were two things: limited off season menu (no specials, but all our dishes were very well prepared) and limited gluten free options. This was our fourth visit and Isola is highly consistent, well managed and a great venue.

    A Pizzeria disguised as an Italian restaurant. Trying to be upscale by charging NYC prices, for a LBI location, for average food. Reservation was for inside table seating but they tried to squeeze us into the pizza bar. No seats inside so seated us at a table on the porch which was cold and the table of 8 was so loud we couldn’t enjoy a quiet evening Probably never return and certainly will not recommend.

    First time at the restaurant. Food was excellent. It was very busy since it was restaurant week. We did have to wait about 15 minutes after the reservation time but it was an 8:15 reservation so it wasn't unexpected. Service was very good. Loved my pear salad. We both had the shrimp with crabmeat. The apple dessert was good. Definitely would go back again.

    I went here for Restaurant week, got the scallops with cauliflower purée entree and Brussel sprouts as an appetizer. Both dishes were good. The appetizer had a lot of flavor , while the scallops were cooked perfectly. The entree was a bit underwhelming because half the plate was empty, so they could have used a smaller plate to better fit the serving size. The bread is ok, and the dipping oil could use spices. Service was quick, attentive, and took care of us considering how busy it was. The decorations are nice, and I'd love to go back and eat on the porch when it's summer!

    We went to Isola last night for restaurant week. The food was excellent. Nick, our server was outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant. Our party had Ceasar Salad, Meatballs and Brussel Sprouts for appetizer. Our dinners were stuffed shrimp and spare ribs. Desserts were apple crisp and tiramisu. All the food was outstanding. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Restaurant week. Ran out of three entrees and three desserts. 12 dollar up charge for a pork chop was exorbitant! Seated outside despite reserving a seat inside and froze. Our party of 4 was seated at a table intended for 2. Agonizingly slow service. We will skip this next year.

    Lamb shank special was delicious! Short ribs, which are on regular menu, as well as the beet salad were delicious. Maureen, our server, attentive without being obtrusive. Everyone welcoming. Four stars because the porch has no ambiance and it was cold. The three heaters just did not make the room comfy.
