I've had dinner at L'Isola 5 times now and never had an average dinner. The food is spectacular, the ingredients are fresh and the service is 5 star. There's a reason it's always packed.

I have to admit I was taken aback being greeted in Italian in the French West Indies so close to home in North America. I got over it really quickly as the waiter brought a most amazing fried polenta with mascarpone dip along with our cocktails. From there, we enjoyed prosciutto e melone and a house salad, followed by a decadent veal and porcini ravioli and shrimp risotto. Amazingly fresh and high quality food and a nice change of pace from the French-Caribbean fusion that permeates the island's restaurant menus. Va bene!

We visited here the last night of my birthday trip and after reading that it was the same owners of one of my local joints back in Santa Monica, I was excited. We walked in during an epic downpour and were seated at a perfect booth in the corner. The decor is sexy, the vibe is perfect and it's just spot on in every way. The wine list is great, order the Gaja Promis the seafood pasta and any other thing on the menu, sit back, relax and people watch. You can't go wrong with anything here... Bravo....
