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

Diner Reviews
  • "We had all afternoon for our lunch and the staff were happy for us to take as much time as we wanted - yet always available when we needed them. I have some allergies (including milk) which I advised in advance and the waiter knew exactly which dishes I could eat (not all Michelin star restaurants get this right!). It was great for me to have so much choice, and the chicken I ordered was excellent. My friend had the seafood risotto and said it was the best he'd had in ages. We will be returning."

    dined on 25/08/2014
  • "A regular of mine. Fantastic value especially as able to use OT offer on a Saturday night. Food consistently good. Love the asparagus and egg starter. Not a fancy restaurant but great for a night out with friends or family at a reasonable price. Not many places like that in central London."
    dined on 23/08/2014
  • "The 50% off food offer meant that we could treat ourselves to the specialities of the house which we thoroughly enjoyed. The starter was excellent too. We will be back soon."
    dined on 23/08/2014
  • "Two of us had a good meal here in the evening. Food was plentiful (we were unable tom finish our main course) and tasty. Restaurant was nearly full but staff were still very attentive and efficient. House wine was good. Would go again."

  • "My 4th time at Isolabella and am never disappointed. Really good Italian food, service always friendly and efficient. I'm very fussy about Italian food and am delighted to have found somewhere where you can experience la vera cucina italiana!"
    dined on 21/08/2014
  • "We were a party of four friends and all agreed that this was one of the best meals out we had all had for some time. Excellent tasty food was served by friendly and efficient staff."

  • "I had to entertain 13 people and cater for very diverse dietary requirements. Isolabella dealt with it no probs and gave us a lovely evening with great food and social atmosphere. Many people commented the next day on the restaurant so very happy"

  • "Amazing place! Great value for money and lovely food."
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "Chose this restaurant because of the good reviews online. There were a handful of bad reviews, including ones saying that the restaurant is too brightly lit. It wasn't, the lights were dimmed and there were candles on the tables. Had bruschetta, followed by penne arrabiata, followed by affogato (which wasn't on the menu, but which they made for me anyway). It was fantastic food, fresh ingredients, well cooked. My dining partner had mussells, a penne with steak and a peppercorn sauce (which he raved about!) and a warm apple tart. We also had a bottle of wine. The final bill, including the 50 per cent discount on food was £47. Service was just right. Fantastic value for central London and great quality. Will definitely be back!"

  • "We chose Isolabella because it had vegetarian choices on the menu and we were not disappointed. The food was good, the service is attentive without being overbearing, the ambience is good for a family dinner or a dinner with a group of friends. They have a fairly good wine list (in our opinion at least- they had some good wines which were not too expensive, but went well with our food choices). The food is good, but not spectacular. I would definitely go back"
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "I've taken lots of different groups of people to Isolabella and we are always hugely impressed. The food is fantastic and, with the Opentable offer, better value than anywhere else in London. Will certainly be back again - highly recommended."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Really enjoyed the food, excellent value with 50% off. Classic Italian, with extensive menu and reasonably priced wine list (the Golden Fleece white was very good) and in a great location. Service was friendly but not OTT and dining room is elegant if not wow. Great location when in Holborn or Bloomsbury areas."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Good food and very welcoming, recommend for business lunch."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Had a lovely meal. Lots to choose from which helps when dining with a vegetarian. The food was delievered quickly after ordering & everything was really tasty. Service was great - really friendly. This is my second time to this restaurant so appears to be consistently good. Would recommend again & also eat there again."
    dined on 06/08/2014
  • "I went to Isolabella with two friends for a catch up meal. We had the 50% offer which meant the food was very good value. Two of us had pizzas which were lovely with very crispy bases. My other friend had prawn pasta which was absolutely full of prawns. Dessert was really nice too. The service was prompt and they did not rush us to leave once we'd finished our meal. The restaurant was reasonably quiet so it was a pleasant atmosphere but even when full there's good space between tables. I would recommend this restaurant."
    dined on 06/08/2014
  • "the food is great, the service is excellent and the price is fair. It tends to get a little hot in the restaurant but it is a great Italian meal with good portion sizes!"
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "Pleasant and calm atmosphere, good service and the food was excellent."
    dined on 30/07/2014

    dined on 28/07/2014
  • "Absolutely fantastic evening. The menu was huge and everything we had was first class. The wine menu also was very good. Would thoroughly recommend it. The service was outstanding"
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "Our second visit to Isolabella - an Italian Restaurant, run by VERY friendly Madeirans. Remarks about the ton of chili used in one of the dishes we had on our first visit, was taken on board and much less was used for the dishes chosen on our 2nd visit. Great pasta - very good linguine with crab, excellent Carbonara - very good veal, nice desserts, very good Prosecco, House red wine and Limoncello, great service, competent staff, made to feel VERY welcome. A couple of minor niggles but nothing serious. Highly recommended, especially with OpenTable's "50% off food" voucher. Already looking forward to our next visit."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "Excellent service and good food. With 50% off good, it is a great place to dine."
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "Very good value at 50% off food. The veggie in our group was very happy at the number of options available and the restaruant were accomodating to requests eg. having a pasta option as a starter. Portion sizes were generous. Would certainly recommend when on offer but expensive at full price and there is better places you could go for the same money."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "Good ambiance and excellent service. The food was very good. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant"
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "We went for an after work dinner after reading good reviews. Staff were friendly and very attentive throughout our meal. We ordered calamari to start which was ok, not the best I've tried but the garlic mayo was delicious! My main was really tasty (pollo e funghi) with my partner choosing pollo e broccoli, which in my opinion wasn't as good. For dessert we shared the tiramisu which was lovely and light with a good kick of coffee. With the 50% discount the meal was good value for money, although I probably wouldn't pay full price as the quality is not as good as other Italian restaurants. Worth a try."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "We had an extended family lunch here with a visitor from Liverpool. The restaurant is well decorated, bright and clean, and the staff polite and cheerful in their interactions. We had a mixture of starters, mains and desserts, with the whole party commenting that they would be returning with partners and colleagues. The pizzas were particularly delicious. All in all, recommended."
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "a welcoming atmosphere with great service, good food and fantastic value! Can easily cater for larger parties and big celebrations."

  • "First time at this restaurant and was delighted with the quality and choice offered. Good options for vegetarians too."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "Good value business lunch. First time at Isolabella and I'd definitely go back. Varied menu and both parties very satisfied by the end of the meal. Was a bit concerned when asked how I'd like my chicken cooked, but the waitress had just misunderstood by order and soon came back to the table to rectify. 25% off food at lunch offer made it even better value and worth a visit."
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "Came back to this restaurant with friends on the 50% off food offer. Had an outstanding steak with good vegetables and a fine tiramisu. This is fast becoming one of my favourite restaurants - with or without the special offer."
    dined on 07/07/2014
  • "We went as a group of four for a casual dinner. On a Monday night the restaurant was not very crowded, the service very attentive and relaxed and the food was really tasty (and I usually don't like Italian!) I really was surprised by the great quality and tastefulness despite us using the 50% off food deal. We had a starter, mains and a dessert - the mains were really good, the Tiramisu a bit disappointing. Overall a really fun night - recommended!!"
    dined on 07/07/2014
  • "Myself and two friends went to Isolabella and it was exactly what we wanted. Tasty food, great value and nice speedy (but not so they were rushing you out the door!) service. it was a nice atmosphere so we could catch up over some yummy food and a bottle of wine. Would definitely go again."
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "Very friendly and relaxed restaurant with charming staff anticipating diners' needs unpushily. As usual the food was delicious! Crisp Calamari, firm yet creamy and tender Halibut and a decadent Limoncello Icecream to finish off."
