Isola Del Sole’s mission in life is to bring a little bit of the Italian sunshine into the lives of London. More specifically, this Italian restaurant in the heart of Putney, along Lacy Road, brings the cuisine and hospitality of Italy’s sun-kissed Sardinia to table with a stunning array of regional dishes and fine wine. Known for their fantastic private dining and catering service, bringing what they do best to your home, Isola Del Sole are standouts in London’s Italian dining scene. If you like this restaurant, don’t forget to check out their sister in East Sheen – a basement art gallery and jazz cafe exhibiting the same Sardinian lust for life.
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.
Lovely intimate family run restaurant. Small menu yet great choice. Great food and ambiance. Attentive service and very polite. Would recommend , lovely intimate experience.
The menu was quite small but the food was fantastic. We had the pasta as our mains and it was freshly made. This is your typical Italian restaurant so, healthy appetites will require both the pasta and also a main course. Service was attentive and quick. Will definitely go again.
Amazing local Italian restaurant, will be going again and again. Would recommend to anyone in the area. Regularly updated menu with delicious alternatives. Thank you
