Italian
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.

The food was delicious! I would highly recommend if in the area. As it’s a bit back from the main area of Holborn it’s not as atmospheric but I preferred the quiet as we were there as a young family. The staff were lovely and very accommodating.

The staff were very helpful, attentive and accommodating. Food for most part was delicious, a delightful asparagus and egg start made for the birthday person was incredible. Some dishes lacked ‘fresh’ vegetables to give that authentic homemade feel and taste. But overall was a fantastic evening, and everyone left happy and full. Highly recommend the pumpkin tortellini.

I come fairly often and am never disappointed! Had an amazing pumpkin and pecorino tortellini followed by a lovely panna cotta. Price is good for the quality of food and they sometimes have deals on. Service was quick. No complaints, just a lovely meal!

A proper authentic Italian restaurant, nice and lively on a busy Saturday evening, had the duck ragu which was excellent, followed by cheese and biscuits Italian style, also very good. Service was attentive without being irritating or intrusive. Very good value as had discount with opentable that they automatically applied to the bill, which was very efficient

Delicious dinner for four at Isolabella pre a theatre visit in the west end. The milanese veal with pasta was delicious and, with 50% off food, excellent value. Could not fault the food or the service. One thing - the drinks, particularly the beers, are expensive, even for London. Will absolutely be returning when back in London, however!

This restaurant is reliably good. Food is well prepared and attractively presented. Prices are very reasonable with the OpenTable 50% off food deal but drinks are on the expensive side. Staff are very pleasant and service is prompt. I am happy to recommend Isolabella to my friends.

Been here often because it can be superb - it was tonight. Not big eaters so appreciate modest portion sizes and this was perfect - excellently cooked lobster and saltimbocca washed down with verdicchio. Staff are great too. What's not to like ?

Good food, we were sat in the inside part of the restaurant and felt a bit isolated from the rest of it. But had 50% off food which was great! Seafood pasta was very nice and hearty!

I always enjoy the food here and there are some dishes not seen on standard Italian restaurant menus. I had pasta with duck ragu which tasted good but was a little too salty on this occasion. I did let them know. For a Tuesday evening it was very busy, possibly due to the very good 50% off food offer. However, this did make it a little too noisy for a quiet dinner for 2, though I appreciate there is nothing the restaurant can do about that.

We managed to secure a 50% off food deal but prices without this would have been worth it. The food was delicious and they definitely do not scrimp on the size of the mains in particular. Good service.

Really very good food.
Starter - I had the king prawn with garlic and chilli. It was a bit to heavy on the garlic chunks and chilli. My dining partner had squid rings which where fairly standard issue.
Mains - I had the whole sea bream and it was a massive fish. Dining partner had the Veal in tomato source and really enjoyed it. We shared sauteed potatoes and zucchini. The apple pie was to die for and I don't like pastry.
Very cosy environment with comfy leatherette chairs for over 40s derrieres great! Toilet area does need some regular inspection/ clean during each shift and possible redecoration however.
Definitely well worth the 50% off food option. I would break their arm off and go if they ever re-introduce 50% of food and drink ever again!
