A word from Isolabella
Among London’s leading Italian restaurants, Isolabella charms guests to its centrally located dining room with wonderful authentic and sophisticated food and a classy, formal yet friendly atmosphere. Popular with business diners and the pre- and post-theatre crowd, Isolabella is sleekly put together to combine both modern style and touches of tradition for an unobtrusive look that allows focus to remain on the kitchen’s excellent food. Ranging from pasta, pizza and risotto to meat, fish and seafood dishes, the extensive, though certainly not over the top, menu includes both favourite Italian restaurant dishes and house signatures, an opportunity to sample the best the kitchen has to offer. Freshly prepared to order, Isolabella’s food is accompanied by a fine selection of wines, each choice paired with a suitable sip for those guests seeking the perfet partnership.Continued

  • "The toptable offer with 25% off food at lunch was good. . It is a formal restaurant but the food was tasty and plenty of choices."
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "Took advantage of the 25% off food offer for our team lunch for 6. Clean, crisp table linen and good silverware set the scene for a delicious meal with attentive service. Unlike in many nearby restaurants, our team all got their mains at the same time, and no desperately waiting to get someone to bring us the bill and then deal with it again. Will book again soon for another team meal"

  • "We went on an early Thursday evening and as we dined, the restaurant filled up quickly. Menu was pretty standard, I had the crab linguine which was delicious although there were a few bits of shell/cartilage in it which wasn't great (although reassuring that it was indeed real crab). It was nevertheless perfectly seasoned. My partner's pepperoni pizza looked pretty basic but was well made, with a chewy crust that was nice and crispy. With the toptable offer, it was extremely good value and can't really fault the service, will definitely be back! "

  • "Visited on a Friday night at 9pm.Greeted warmly and quickly even thought the restaurant was packed. We were shown to a lovely round table where we were given a dish of olives to nibble on. The food was top notch, I had fritto misto to start and my partner had an asparagus dish, for main I had a seafood risotto and my partner had a steak pasta dish. Even though we were stuffed we squeezed in desserts of tiramisu and limoncello panna cotta. Lovely service, would highly recommend. Would happily pay full price, even though on this occasion we had a 50% top table deal."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "With the 50% discount of the a la carte the meal was very good value but otherwise i would not recommned it. The starters were extremly good very fresh and the portions were excellent. The dessert of apple tart was vey good but the main course was extremly disappointing. I had the halibut but it was over cooked and very dry. My fried had the lamb shank and it had no flavourt to it and was very dry. Although the portions were good the quality was vey disappointing. "
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "With the toptable discount this is a very good place to eat in central London. They provide some of the best Italian food I have had in either the UK or Italy. There is a good range of wines too at reasonable prices. Have been there a few times and will definitely be going back."

  • "We wanted to eat at Isolabella before going to the theatre. However, when we arrived at 5.50, although they took our order relatively quickly, we waited an hour for our food, until I asked a waiter. He then told me it would be a further 45 minutes until our PIZZA and simple PASTA dish would be ready. Absolutely unbelievable. I would not return here. There was also no beer on tap, and drinks were fairly expensive."

The only negative thing was that we had to wait for the food a bit too long, hence the four stars. Apart from that, we all enjoyed the meal and will definitely go back."

  • "Food was great. The waitress did not get my bill correct at the first attempt, but once this was sorted the value was very good. I did find the restaurant to be very hot - not sure if it was where we sat or if it was a problem with the air con. House wine was very good and one of the best I have had."

The five of us had no trouble carrying on a conversation. The service was friendly, the wine list extensive and reasonably priced. And the food was quite good. Great modern Italian meal."

    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "We were a group of 10 having dinner after a meeting, everyone in the group enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Having ordered the veal it was perfectly cooked with a mushroom sauce, spinach with garlic was a superb accompaniment. The light limoncello ice cream with limoncello liquor was a nice way to finish the meal, followed by a good brandy of course. With the staff being very attentive, offering black pepper as the courses were served. A wide selection on the menu and some great wines, we will return."
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "I don't eat in the West End often, so compared with local restaurants, without the food offer, it would have been expensive. The food was quite average, I had chicken with mushroom sauce, which was a bit salty. I think the chicken was fried before the sauce was poured on. Service was good, staff friendly. It was all ok, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go back."
    dined on 17/03/2014
  • "been to Isolabella last Saturday night with my wife and another couple looking forward to going again tomorrow night If you like eating good quality fresh produce in a good atmosphere then this is the place for you the service is excellent and the drinks reasonably priced for a top Italian restaurant As for value after toptable discount the price for some of the meals on the menu are cheaper than if you buy it raw in the supermarket cant wait till tomorrow night to dig into a fresh whole grilled doversole"
