We had never tried Isola, we live in La Jolla. So we thought we’d stop in for dinner. The server recommended the bruschetta and we added prosciutto and cheese. The portion was very generous and it was sooooo delicious! As entrees we both enjoyed pizzas...More

Disappointed with the service. I’ve been at Isola several times but my last visit wasn’t great. We were a party of 6. Service was really slow. It was busy and it just didn’t feel that they were adequately staffed for the night. They ran out...More

The place is OK. Pizza Menu is different from regular pizza places but the flavor is plain. Even though there is rotation in the place, this is not the kind of place you want to stay after you finish...average.

Don't know why we were pretty much ignored after we sat down at this restaurant on one of La Jolla's main streets. We had a reservation and the restaurant was pretty empty when we arrived. We had to ask to give our orders, and then...More

Isola has the best pizza in La Jolla and that's saying a lot. I haven't been for the happy hour yet but the prices are great and the selection of appetizers is amazing. There is an excellent selection of wines by the glass.
