Isola Del Sole
OutstandingAnother fantastic meal - food is amazing, service great, went for wife's birthday and had a brilliant evening18/05/2013 00:00:00As ever a really really interestingAs ever a really really interesting menu. You will not find Spag Bol on the menu here but some really authentic Italian food, many ideas developed by Andrea himself.
He has now added a cheeseboard which was excellent. Really good meal as ever.18/05/2013 00:00:00Possibly the best Italian in LondonThis used to be my local restaurant, until I moved away, but it is certainly worth the occasional trip to Putney.
Don't be put off by its size, or location, as this is the real deal - a family-run restaurant serving genuine Italian regional cooking (as confirmed by my Italian girlfriend who loved it) at its finest. The pasta is homemade (and can be purchased), and all the meals are beautifully cooked and presented - although starting to get a bit nouvelle.
Seriously, if you live in SW London and haven't been here, you're really missing out - but don't expect pizza!11/04/2013 00:00:00Small and friendlyWe went for Mothering Sunday. Fellow diners included young families, 3 young women and a single elderly gentleman, all well received. The tables are well spaced out in this tiny place so no problems with sharing conversation or loud children.
Food was delicious from beginning to end; great pasta with fish, delicious liquid sorbet and fried cheese dish . Wines are Sardinian which involved us taking a punt on an unknown red which was quite good, as was the prosecco. Service was quick and friendly.10/03/2013 00:00:00Isola del Sole in Putney isIsola del Sole in Putney is our favourite restaurant and every time we return, we are still pleasantly surprised. The starter of the Velutatta of Jerusalem artichokes with a poached duck egg was rich but so tasty and unusual, and we all had the seafood tagliatelle which is simple but packed with flavour and textures. The food never disappoints and no matter how busy they are, the service is impeccable.16/02/2013 00:00:00Fabulous!This restaurant goes from strength to strength. A great neighbourhood restaurant and some of the best Italian cuisine I've tasted anywhere. You want to eat everything and every visit increases loyalty. Just delicious food and a great buzzy informal atmosphere!08/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent as always.....myExcellent as always.....my favourite spot in putney!02/02/2013 00:00:00A pleasurable experienceOur food at Isola was fantastic - all three courses outstanding. Our reason for the three star service rating was that the restaurant was full and the strain telling on either the chef or the waitresses. It was over an hour from arrival to our first course being served -too long. The remainder came more quickly, but still not as slick as should have been. However we would wait again for an hour for the quality and taste of the food we had that evening, if we have the chance to go again. But for the wait it was superb.17/01/2013 00:00:00Had dinner at Isola del SoleHad dinner at Isola del Sole and the food was the usual high standard with friendly and attentive service. Ingredients were fresh and beautifully cooked and presented.28/12/2012 00:00:00Lovely Friday evening supperVery good attentive service, excellent food, and intimate small dining room. Great place for a couple or a small group. Would thoroughly recommend. Was a little quiet for a Friday evening but I think that was because people had already left for Christmas.20/12/2012 16:00:00Out of the way gemVery good experience - friendly service, unexpectedly tasty, will definitely return29/08/2012 00:00:00Sardinia comes to PutneyAnother highly enjoyable family dinner at this distinctively Sardinian restaurant in the heart of Putney.

We shared a delicous plate of antipasti and went on to enjoy excellent pasta dishes - tagliatelle with quail, and large pasta tubes with a crab and fresh cherry tomato sauce (delicious). The strawberry tiramisu did not quite work for us, but otherwise this was a delicious meal in a friendly local restaurant that serves outstanding Italian food.02/04/2012 16:00:00Isola Del sole a small restaurantIsola Del sole a small restaurant in Putney is a favourite place for us to eat.
