We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at L'Isola. We started off with carpaccio di Manzo (beef) that melted in your mouth. For our entree's we ordered risotto scampi and veal ravioli di vitello - both were served hot and were filled with flavor to perfection. We shared the natural delights sorbet for dessert. This is a quiet restaurant with a great... More

My wife is Italian so I have high standards for Italian food. I have to be honest most Italian restaurants on the islands are usually average at best. L'Isola however is excellent. Inside the restaurant you would think you were walking to an Italian place in New York City. We had a party of 6 and everyone loved their food.... More

We dined at L'Isola tonight and had a very good meal. The artichoke appetizer is delicious - get your own and don't share. You will want to eat all of it! Fresh shaved artichokes with lemon and shredded parmesan cheese. The lobster spaghetti is a must. My husband ordered the spinach ravioli ..although very good I would order something different...

this small Italian restaurant serves some of the best food on the island. It has a great reputation, and they earn it consistently. Wonderful, professional service. Delicious menu.

Old Italian feel. Elegant, supperclub type atmosphere. Dressy. All the waiters are male and Italian. Food is top notch.I liked the salt crusted sea bass. Extensive Italian wine list. One of our top choices on the island.

One of our favorite restaurants on the island. It consistently has great food--favorite is the lobster pasta--and great cocktails. The restaurant is always bustling and fun. The staff is very nice and helpful with great recommendations. The portions are not huge but they definitely fill you up.

My husband and I ate dinner at L'Isola the week of Jan. 15, 2017. The restaurant is located in Gustavia and street parking is available nearby (valet parking is quite expensive). The restaurant is very pretty and the food was excellent. L'Isola was probably one of our best meals while we were in St. Barth. I had an excellent homemade... More

L'isola never disappoints. From the moment we walked in the door the staff was so accommodating. Amazing pasta dishes and the salads were fresh and delicious.. The spaghetti with lobster was mind blowing. We also had the steak flora Tina and the eggplant parmigiana which were also excellent. The desserts were also fantastic. A definite to add to your experience... More

This restaurant doesn't disappoint. Eggplant parmigiana was so good we ordered two!! Spaghetti bolognese the best. The spaghetti with lobster was the bomb. Florentine steak was tasty, special fish very fresh. Don't leave without ordering all desserts. Great service. Great Italian on a French island. We come back every year.

The waitstaff here are terrific--very old school Italian, charming, entertaining. The seating is very tight. We couldn't help but notice that no one near us was smiling as they ate--the food has become very heavy and uninspired. The pasta dishes were seriously oversauced. And of course, very expensive. If you're in the mood to dress up and be part of... More
