We visited this restaurant last year when it was relatively new and thought they needed to work out a few kinks. We tried again this year and found that it wasn't any better. My mother and husband's pasta wasn't cooked properly- it was actually crunchy. We requested dessert menus which never came - I finally had to get up and... More

We had wonderful food right at the resort. Our wait-staff were friendly and helpful, especially Kalessa (hopefully I have spelled this right). The ambience is not scenic, it is on the road, but it was our favorite meal at the Simpson Bay Resort.

We stopped here for dinner and had our fill of pasta for sure. Between the Seafood combo, Lasagna, and a wide selection of wines we had our fill for sure. The staff was very helpful in assisting with our selections and answered any questions we may have.

The first night we were there we split a calzone(it was called something else) w ham cheese and there was one other ingredient. We also split the lobster appetizer. It... More

Marco Ferrante, who was head chef for years at La Gondola and was then Restaurant Manager for years at IZI Ristorante Italiano, is now chief honcho at L'Sola Restaurant. He is bringing in new chefs from Italy, totally redoing the staff so it is truly talented and responsive, and will then turn the menu upside down. I fully expect he... More

My friend and I had eggplant part and split a salad and it was perfect. We got a complimentary bottle of Prosecco with my VIP card from SBRM and we also got a free tiramisu each because we agreed to move to make room for a larger group that needed our space.

Isola is adjacent to the Hollywood Casino. We were staying at the Flamingo Beach Resort and went there to avoid the traffic and parking difficulties in Simpson Bay. Had never been there before. It was a nice surprise. Very good food, reasonably priced. Our server was Natasha, who may just be the best on the entire island. She is amazing.... More

We had a wonderful meal at Isola which is now under a new manager, Marco. Marco was formerly at IZI and has brought with him his experience on the floor and in the kitchen. . I had a veal chop that was perfectly cooked and my husband had a swordfish special that he found to be very good. The service... More
