I dine here frequently and I always get a smile, a lovely meal and good service, even when it's packed (which it is a lot). These guys know how to make a proper pizza base but everything else on the menu is equally as good. Well done guys, consistency if everything with a restaurant.

Went to Isola on a Saturday evening, we booked and glad we did as they got very busy as the evening went on. We had a garlic bread with cheese to start with, the isola chilli sauce that comes with it is lovely. For main course we had the strips of beef calzone - 10/10 for flavour, the calzone was... More

Prior to taking my grandchildren to A party we came to Isola for an early dinner as it's their favourite place. As usual the staff were welcoming when we arrived and we were shown our table and told the specials. I enjoyed a great Linguine with Seafood and the children had their usual Lasagne which they always enjoy but the... More

My husband and I came here when visiting the Isle of Man only for 2 nights. We're so glad we spent one of our evenings here. We both love Italian food, and this seemed to be authentic Italian. Our starters were huge, and tasted delicious. We also ordered some homemade bread which was lovely and warm. Our mains were a... More

Hoped for a lovely family meal in the cosy surroundings of Isola, however was disappointed. The Restaurant smelt rather musty & uninviting, but we persevered. Our 3 children opted for lasagne with salad (priced rather handsomely at £14) & soon complained that it tasted fishy. None managed to clean their plate (an extremely rare occurrence!) in fact each lasagne remained... More

When we fancied an Italian meal, the Isola was recommended by our hotel receptionist, and we are glad we took her advice. The restaurant is quirky, and the food is lovely. Apparently it is one of the oldest "eateries" on the Island.

We were looking for gluten free food whilst on IOM and were recommended Isola. They do gluten free pizza and other gluten free options. The hoisin duck pizza option was different but tasty. Only downside was the price £26 for 2 take away pizzas.

Quaint interior if not a little dated. Food was quite expensive for what we had. I got the ham and pineapple pizza and it had tinned pineapple on it. I tasted better pizzas from the local tesco. My companion got the pork escalopes which arrived with some mixed veg, mash and tons of a very sickly sauce poured over. We... More
