Putney’s Isola Del Sole is open for lunch, dinner, and drinks. This London Italian restaurant south of the river remains true to the ethos that would hold sway in any native Sardinian kitchen – simple, seasonal recipes bursting with flavour and freshness, presented beautifully and with pride. Lunch here down Lacy Road, just off Putney High Street, runs from noon to 2:30pm, and though the menu changes almost every day, you can expect dishes such as Isola Del Sole’s gnocchi al campidano (homemade Sardinian gnocchi with pork ragout) to take your breath away.
After closing in the afternoon (not for a siesta but to prepare for the next wave of fans of this superior Italian restaurant), Isola Del Sole opens again at 6pm with a lavish dinner menu that includes a traditional antipasto Sardo and an emphasis on seafood, as befits the island-bound heritage of Sardinian cuisine – the pan-fried prawns with saffron-infused Sardinian couscous is a must, and indicative of Sardinian regional cuisine’s dialogue with North African and Middle Eastern cuisines. Isola Del Sole are also able to take what they do down Putney’s Lacy Road to your own home or event, with a fantastic catering service popular across London.
Beautiful atmosphere, excellent wine, amazing food - particularly the pasta. The service was attentive and helpful. A great find in a hidden location. Will be returning.
Spent a lovely fri night at Isola, lovely food and attentive staff. Not a free table available so glad we booked. Wld definitely return here
Great food and polite and attentive staff with a cosy but very warm environment. Reasonable pricing but wine could have been better chilled in advance
A treasure of a local restaurant. Amazing service & delicious fresh food, in stunning candlelit surroundings. I can't rate this little gem highly enough, delicious!
I thought the ambience in the restaurant was very appealing, calm but not boring and a pretty room. The menu was unusual and totally delicious, and our waitress was lovely. All the courses on the menu looked wonderful, so that we had difficulty choosing. Pasta was absolutely the way all pasta should be, very succulent, and the sauces were unusual. We loved it and can't wait to go back.
Another lovely evening of fantastic food and great service. From the moment you walk in to the amazing smells of home cooking; from drinking the first sips of great wine you haven't tried before but which becomes a favourite; right through to sharing a desert but wishing you'd ordered your own - another relaxed and lovely evening at Isola Del Sole.
Great food, homemade pasta - the recommendations did not disappoint! Our waiter was super friendly and helpful, which is a welcome change in London. The food did take a while to arrive, but I think thats more to do with meals being made from scratch - which is a good thing! Will visit again if I'm in the area.
Superb 3 course meal on New Years Eve, the food was delicious and so enjoyable, great atmosphere and everyone was in friendly chatty form which created a nice buzz. Looked after very well by Luke, drinks and food were prompt and we left feeling very full and so glad we'd booked in there. Thanks for a great evening! ☺
Let's start positive the staff were lovely and welcoming. Had high expectations for good Italian food and had starved myself all day in anticipation, start with the bread basket, it was like the cheapest white sliced bread you could buy at the supermarket, Italian breads are brilliant no idea why they didn't serve something more authentic. Main I went for Linguini Vongole the pasta was extremley over cooked like mush, almost seemed like it was left over from lunch and reheated very disappointing at £17 for a bowl of pasta. The aperitif £8.95 for a negroni I expected a glass bigger than a thimble!! Would I return sadly no, would I recommend NO it's way overpriced..
good food, nice ambience, attentive waiters. We had a very enjoyable evening. An extra friend came who wasn't included in the original booking but that wasn't a problem. The Linguine with crab was just as it should be and so was the Ravioli with Porcini. We'll definitely come back.
Very good, authentic Italian food. The restaurant was buzzing, there were a couple of large groups in, so maybe not good for a quiet meal? However, there was a nice atmosphere and the staff were helpful and friendly. It was our first visit and I'd definitely go back.
Very nice restaurant indeed, the ambience is charming , the staff very good and friendly and we both enjoyed our food, it is a great local restaurant for us and we will definitely be going there again.
Chilled out, cosy restaurant perfect for a cold winter evening. The menu is mostly pasta based. I had the crab linguine which was delicious. The desserts were amazing - we shared a panacotta and tiramisu.
I thought the ambience , food and service all hit the mark. We organised dinner with our friends and they were very happy. The chef even adapted to the request from our daughter to provide something not on the menu .
Wonderful evening. Cosy, inviting atmosphere. Friendly and superb service. Finally, truly excellent and mouth-watering food. Hard to decide what to order. Definitely a place for a special occasion. Be sure to make a date
This restuarant is one of my very favourites and we are so lucky to have them in Putney. The food is top notch, delicious and inspiring and the service is second to none
Isola de Sol is a small Sardinian restaurant and feels very personal. It has a warm atmosphere, the service is friendly and attentive and the food is excellent. Ask the sommelier about their Sardinian wines - well worth trying!
Very friendly reception on a Saturday night. Good food. Friendly and attentive service. Between us we had beef capacio, bruschetta, venison tagliatelle and ravioli. All well cooked and delightful. Atmosphere bubbled nicely - not too lourd or quiet
Excellent meal, fantastic service, buzzy atmosphere and well priced for London. This little gem is just a short walk from home and I have never been disappointed. I thoroughly recommend it.
Lovely. Can't understand why it's not busier. Beautifully cooked and and charming friendly service. There were 5 of us and it was just shy of 50 per head which is not cheap but it was worth it.
Lovely atmosphere and great food... we have always enjoyed eating here and tonight was no exception. The staff are attentive and welcoming - we highly recommend Isola del Sole.
Great service, attentive, good wine advice. excellent food, very tasty, good potions, competitively priced. fantastic wine, both red & white delicious...perhaps on the expensive side. Well worth a visit.
Wonderful restaurant, delicious food and charming service. All the food was very good but the tiramisu was mind blowing! Definitely one of the very best in Putney. Strongly recommend.
Excellent, food worth every penny! Recommended by a friend and she was right, great local restaurant can't believe we have not been sooner. We will certainly be back soon
We had a delicious meal in quiet and friendly surroundings. The service was good and we will be going back. Nice to go to a family run restaurant.
Lovely as always! The food is exceptional and the staff are lovely to deal with. It was a special night for our family and the evening was wonderful.
Small, cosy restaurant which never lets you down. Excellent food, wine and service. Sardinian food is slightly different from most Italian restaurants and absolutely fantastic. We will return!
Lovely little restaurant off the main high street. Very friendly and helpful staff and delicious food. Great atmosphere and would highly recommend. I will definitely be returning.
Beautifully made Italian food in a cosy setting tucked away off Putney high Street. We had a great evening there and will definitely be going back.
Always enjoy coming here for informal business lunch. Thank you to the team for the great food, service and atmosphere. Much appreciated and see you soon.
Fantastic restaurant - great food, wine, atmosphere and service. Brilliant little local that I'd recommend people travel to - one of the best places in Putney
Lovely service - patient while we chatted - and great food. Welcoming to my friend's 3month old and a great atmosphere all round. Thank you
Intimate and friendly restaurant with delicious Italian food. Choice of daily specials. Recommend you book well in advance at weekends as it is usually full.
Very welcoming staff. Lovely atmosphere nice and cosy and the food was good with wine suggestions Menu not too extensive. We would Definitly go again
As usual, fantastic food and one. the pasta is freshly hand made everyday at the restaurant. And the service is as great as the food.
The food is amazing! The ambience is absolutely cosy! The waiters are very attentive. Food is really hearty homemade Italian. For Putney it is pricey but really worth paying.
Menu was inadequate as fish of the day was unavailable and the remaining selection was not to my liking. Also, a huge price difference (£10) between the house wine and the next (slightly) better bottle.
I am from Sardinia and I wasn't very impress. The food was ok but it wasn't so special, too salty. The prices are too high for the quality. I will try to go one more time. I hope to change my mind about my first opinion.
The typical sardinian food was delicious and the staff was very nice and welcoming. The atmosphere was calm and relaxing. Definitely recommended for a lovely dinner.
Authentic Sardinian food in a pleasant, friendly setting. A limited menu and wine list but very good quality food and wine at a fairly reasonable price.
Good food, the swordfish steak was delicious. The service was mediocre - Staff were friendly and polite but at times slow and not very attentive, even though the restaurant was not that busy. The choice of after dinner digestifs was very limited.
Delicious food. Good service. Lovely atmosphere. Thank you very much now trying to get to the minimum of 25 works which seems a bit OTT!
Lovely meal on a Sat night. Great service. Food and wine delicious. Highly recommend. Starter (bruschetta) was a little small portion-wise for me buy lovely
We had a delicious meal in intimate and friendly surroundings. Prompt and welcoming service in a genuine family restaurant. Staff were attentive without being intrusive.
A bit pricey, but lovely food and great atmosphere. The venison ragou tagilatelle is devine! Would definitely go back again soon for a special occasion.
Lovely warm atmosphere but slow service. Starters were good but not particularly special. I think if you order pasta you won't go wrong here. Is expensive though for what it is..
Nice atmosphere and pleasant service. The food was good without being stunning. In reality slightly overpriced for what it was. They'd forgotten to add the wine on to the bill.
Nice waiting staff but the food was poor. The aubergine with mozzarella was a moisture-less mess cooked to death. The wild boar ragù was a salty lumpy experience and served microwave hot. Even the wine was joyless. Acidic and unpleasant. Meet for a few drinks here by all means. But avoid the food at all costs.
The service was very nice, the ambience is also nice the food is good, we specially liked the desert. Try the pecorino ravioli with honey and lemon!
Comida muy rica, presentación bonita, lugar tranquilo y servicio bueno. Quizás un poco caro en comparación con otros restaurantes de la zona que son muy buenos también.
