When we fancied an Italian meal, the Isola was recommended by our hotel receptionist, and we are glad we took her advice. The restaurant is quirky, and the food is lovely. Apparently it is one of the oldest "eateries" on the Island.

We were looking for gluten free food whilst on IOM and were recommended Isola. They do gluten free pizza and other gluten free options. The hoisin duck pizza option was different but tasty. Only downside was the price £26 for 2 take away pizzas.

Superb quality food, wine and excellent value. Friendly service make this an enjoyable place to eat, particularly for a pre-booked party of eight. Would describe lower floor as "cosy", others might say a bit cramped, but this adds to the convivial atmosphere. Already eagerly contemplating...More
