Wonderful and delicious food in a delightful small setting. Service was pretty decent too. Would thoroughly recommend for a great night out, when not wanting to stray too far. The food was very fresh and well tasting.

The food was entirely adequate however nothing to write home about especially for the price. We were also served far too quickly, which may seem like a good thing however we were celebrating a birthday and felt as though they were just trying to turn over more covers that night. Also due to the speed of the service it also... More

It's a cosy family-run place in a small room in a Putney side street. One of the middle-aged gents sitting at a table right at the front turned out to be the owner when his fiend passed him the post after it had been placed nearby. It feels a bit overwhelmed by the trendy glass expanse of a new Indian... More

Nice cosy place, quite and comfortable. Good spectrum of Italian -especially Sardinian- starters and main dishes. Friendly service by Christian. Cannonau -Sardinian wine- recommended: a new and interesting exploration of Italian reds.

Second visit at Isola del Sole after my first time last November. Again another great experience. Very friendly stuff and great food for a very good price. Home-Made Linguine with Crab was outstanding and so was the Fregola with seafood. Very good selection of Sardinian wines too and I could confirm this is a real gem in Putney and the... More

I love this place. It's family run and you quite literally feel like you're eating in someone's front room. Amazing pasta, great service and a really nice atmosphere.

Food was really quite fab. We ordered the PORCHETTA and PARMIGIANA DI MELANZANE for starters, both prepared beautifully, particularly the Parmigiana which unlike most restaurants was not over cooked. The mains, Ravioli and the LINGUINE BOTTARGA E GAMBERI were a joy and followed by a wonderfully tasty Pannacotta. I have no idea how anyone could not rate this restaurant, if... More

From the outside, it looks cozy and inviting. Thoughts of starched tablecloths, a warm greeting by a family and superb food beckoned. Instead was a bland and shabby interior, no family greeting and certainly no tablecloths. I can live with all of that. But when the food is really poor, it ruins the whole thing. My starter of Baked aubergine... More

Hi galden724, We are very sorry to hear that your experience was not as you had expected it would be - we want all of our customers to feel relaxed and at home when they come and enjoy our food but for us this does not include starched tablecloths as much as it does the people we work with. We... More

Just pass buy few days ago. The food here is amazing. It relies on great flavours and interesting combinations and is not fussy and over the top. Wonderful. The service was terrific. Very attentive but not in an in-your-face kind of way. Excellent value for money too.

Description
Isola del Sole is the door to the Mediterranean in south-west London. With fresh and daily-made pasta, an array of flavours and the rich passion of life in every dish, this little Sardinian jewel is enough to make you feel like you're dining out by the Italian coast rather than by the bustling sounds of Putney. We are open Monday to Saturday, lunch and dinner.
