About Isola Sarda
Staff were very efficient and friendly. Food was excellent - a good choice on the lunch menu. Chose a lovely Pinot Grigio rose to accompany the meal. Unfortunately the restaurant was very quiet which perhaps detracted from the ambience. Would certainly go back but perhaps in the evening when it is a bit busier.
Had an excellent meal here and the staff were lovely. I would definitely recommend.
