Loved my meal at Isolabella. You know the food is good when you love what you are eating but really want to try some of everyone else's dishes. Would certainly love to go back and work my way through the menu.

A good Italian with an extensive and reasonably priced menu - see the website for food and wine menu's. The lunch time starter and main were good quality and the service was very good - Italian staff for that authentic feel.

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
