Welcome to Cape Town’s most mysterious trattoria.  Come here to treat your taste buds to some seriously authentic Italian food, cooked according to the secret recipes passed down through generations of the Italian Crovetto family.

Apart from the beautifully home-cooked food and typical friendly Italian vibe, it’s hard to put your finger on what makes the real magic of this place. Somehow, through the combination of its random location opposite Harley’s liquor store and next to the brothel on Wale/Bree, the crypt doors remaining from the building’s funeral parlor days, the San Pedro cacti growing in the oasis-like courtyard and the fact that the restaurant is the bottom floor of Alberto, the crazy-haired, eccentric co-owner’s home, they’ve managed to create something, at the least say, unique.

The menu simple, but done well. The small selection includes a variety of antipasti, pasta, pizza and desserts; and most of the dishes are, down to every little detail, made from scratch. Isola is most famous for their wood-fired pizzas (keep an ear out for the start of their Monday all-you-can-eat-pizza-parties!), but also try out their mind-blowing Caprese salad and Salmon Tagliarini. To fight off the post-meal food-coma, order a cup of their, strong, Italian espresso and please, whatever you do, make sure you get your hands on some of their F*CKING delicious truffles to go with it.
