Pre/post Theatre
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.

After seeing the London Restaurant week special we decided to try. The food was outstanding. The seafood pasta was filled with seafood! We will absolutely be going back.

It was lovely to be back at Isolabella - we were well looked after . The food was delicious as always.

Unfortunately, as we were seated closed to a table with young children, the noise at times was a little annoying.

The food was really lovely and the service was extremely prompt and attentive. To start, we had the tomato bruschetta and the pizza bread- both absolutely delicious.
I always judge an Italian restaurant by their spaghetti aglio olio, and Isolabella did not disappoint. My pasta was cooked and seasoned perfectly- simple but delicious. The pesto gnocchi was great as well. Last but not least, we ordered the Tiramisu, which was sensational.

Definitely worth a visit for when you want fail-safe, comforting and delicious Italian.

I’m so happy to have found this gem. The service was so friendly and helpful, food wonderful, authentic Italian and the House red wine was superb, as was the tiramisu! All staff wore Face masks and had hand gel which made me feel comfortable and confident re safety during Covid but they still conveyed friendliness and warmth-even asking as we left if we had an umbrella as it had started raining. I so look forward to returning.

It's pretty overpriced for the quality of food they provide. Pasta came out well done, which was disappointing considering its meant to be an Italian restaurant. But they also make the carbonara with cream, which is not Italian, but American.

Not worth the time, money, or calories.

Lamb cutlet is very nice! And the sauté potatoes too! Calamari is not very impressive. Taste like a bit pre-cooked but not freshly fried. Pasta is in a big portion

Quite a basic but a good Italian restaurant. 8pm on Wednesday - but no lasagne left, which was disappointing. Excellent Mushroom and Gorgonxola starter. £30 for 2 courses and a glass of wine (minus £10 Eat out discount). I've been before. I'll go again.

The service was good, but a little too prompt at times so we felt a little rushed between courses. The staff were very polite and friendly and the food was generous and tasty. Very good value with the 50% off food deal.

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.
