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.

Been there several times since it opened...a mixture of romantic meals with my wife, team lunch with my colleagues, dinners with important (and very picky) clients from the US...every occasion has been perfect! Sometimes the service is a little slow but I understand the food it's prepare from scratch so not a big issue. It really is a great place... More

I walked in by chance last Sunday coming back home and I have found a lovely small Italian restaurant, where you can taste the real Sicilian flavours....I got some caserecce alla Norma and Caponata that have taken me back in the hearth of Sicily. The caponata is a must have!!!! The lights were a bit too low, however we enjoyed... More

I went to this restaurant based on the fact that I'd walked past it previously and it looked quite nice, but to be honest that was a mistake. I wasn't impressed. Initially it looks lovely and has a nice quaint atmosphere but before long I realised that the quality of the place was lacking. The table we were given was... More

Potential to be a lovely place but something was just not right, it seemed unorganised with inexperienced staff. The food was nice but nothing special, I struggled to find any crab in my pasta dish. For what you get it is very expensive there are much better restaurants in Putney offering better value too. The food was served on cold... More

This restaurant has to be one of my all time favourites. I have been here time and time again with family and close friends. Not only are the staff outstanding but the food is magnificent. It is a wonderful Sardinia restaurant with all the charm! The Green Asparagus salad with quail eggs, rocket and Parmesan and the Linguine with fresh... More

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.
