Isola offers a very relaxing seated menu for dinners, and they also offer great pizzas for more casual dining. They were hit hard by Irma, but used the opportunity to do a great "facelift." The interior is welcoming, pretty and relaxing. We are in Simpson Bay often and like Isola as one of our "go-to" places. They are consistently good and very friendly.

All home made pasta are to die for. The pizza is thin crust and all fresh ingredients. Special orders were very well received. The bar tender Natasha is friendly and very efficient. The servers Sryeefer and Francine couldn't of been better. We loved it so much we went back 4 times in our 2 week stay. We never do that.

Having not seen Marco for over a year we heard he was managing Isola Italian Restaurant. When Marco recognized us as we pulled up to the valet parking, our reunion was joyous and genuine. We have had the pleasure of Marco’s over the top personality and service for many years and it was great to see him again. The restaurant has had an upgrade since Irma and the setting is excellent. The servers were great especially Callissia (hope I spelled that correct). Marco and the girls were very accommodating and attentive. The food was excellent from the calamarri and scallops to the salmon and chicken parmigiana. Unfortunately due to the bread, the great food and drinks, we did not pace ourselves and missed dessert. We will return for desserts and also to try the Brick Oven pizza. We highly recommend the great food and service at Isola. See you in May.

We found Marco! At this newly renovated gem. The friendly service was second to none. We dined on delicious Calamari, the best scallops and puff pastry ever. The chicken Parmesan was awesome as was the special cranberry and almond crusted salmon. The special spinach and ricotta ravioli was fantastic. The relaxed newly renovated setting is perfect for a great dining experience with friends.

Very accommodating. One person wanted veal parmigiana- not on the menu but another veal dish was. They made it just like she wanted. Lasagna was good. We were all happy with our meals. Salad was extra charge. Bread included. Only negative was they added service charge or tip on the bill and we didn’t catch that - our fault- so she got a 40% tip.

Hello Johnna100,
i'm very happy that your food and service were to your liking and that we have been able to accommodate your special request! Going the extra mile for customer satisfaction is what defines us.
Regarding the 15% service charge, that is pretty standard here in SXM and of course it's clearly stated on our menu at the bottom of every page, i'm sorry that it came as a surprise to you.
Thanks for your feedback here on TA and GRAZIE!
