Have dined here on a few occasions but sadly this restaurant has deteriorated significantly over the past couple of years. Service and food quality- at the price - are dismal. Waste of a view.

We were craving for pizza. Mid-range to fine-dining. Service was ok, nothing worth noting. I sent back the glass of pinot noir which went bad, and then they opened a new bottle and sent me some to taste. At least the new glass did not...More

Consistent good Italian food plus lots of other items. I believe they make their pasta in house to go along with some good pizza. Easy place to stop if you are in the IFC mall.

When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline,
it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are
speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are
located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring
road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic
bars fill the highrises around the area. As is
characteristic of a world-class financial business
district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can

Owned by the Hong Kong based Gaia Group, which is renowned for stylish and authentic Italian restaurants in Hong Kong and Shanghai. Isola always enjoyed the reputation in the fine tastes of Italian haute cuisine.
As the largest restaurant in Shanghai IFC with over 1000㎡ (10800 sq.ft.) of dining area, ISOLA Shanghai can seat 180, with additional 100 seats on the balcony area, and 30 in the bar area.
Designed by the world-renowned interior designer Hugh Zimmern, who also part-designed the "Commune by the Great Wall", the entire dining spaces are enveloped in elegance and tranquillity, reflecting a very contemporary level of designs, combining the classic 'white on white' reminiscent of its Hong Kong counterpart, leading from the dining hall, VIP rooms and intimate cocktail lounge. Its vast outdoor terrace affords stunning view over the beautiful skylines of Shanghai financial centre, making Isola Shanghai every inch this cosmopolitan city's hottest dining destination.
The open kitchen concept is both modern and lively. The dynamic artworks highlight the dining room's clean white walls, and the Futurist-inspired motif represent the urban industrial vitality that is today's Shanghai.
With a focus on fresh and authentic regional Italian cuisine, Chef Marco Busatti's menu offers a popular selection of traditional Italian salads, homemade pastas, stone baked pizzas (including Isola Hong Kong's famed 'Trifola' black truffle pizza), and an extensive choice of oven baked fish and seafood, and roasted meats.
