Isola Del Sole

An authentic and popular Sardinian restaurant on Lacey Road, Putney. There's a neighbourhood-restaurant feel to things here, so expect a friendly welcome and plenty of locals.

There's an emphasis on the dishes and produce of Sardinia, though other Italian regions feature too. Starters range from fresh artichoke salad with rocket and crisp parmesan to fresh crab salad, burrata on aubergine 'caviar' and bruschetta with n'duja sausage.

Pasta dishes such as pappardelle with wild boar ragu and tagliatelle with fresh tiger prawns and cherry tomatoes prove popular here. Third courses include Sardinian-style roast pork belly with borlotti beans and sautéed spinach, and pan-fried prawns with Sardinian cous cous and saffron. 

The wine list concentrates on Sardinian bottles, though drops from Marche, Friuli, Tuscany and Piemonte also feature. The cocktail list has been designed by Kay Plunkett-Hogge - author of Make Mine a Martini, with classics alongside those paying further homage to Sardinia.

I went for a late diner on a weekday, and maybe that didn’t help too much. Service was a bit of a hit and miss, the pasta was fresh but a bit too thick for my taste, and lacking flavour. Apppetizers and dessert were the highlight of the night, although very simply presented, with creamy burrata and a lovely velvety tiramisu. Heard great things about this place, but my visit didn’t live up to the expectations.

Every trip to London should make a stop in Putney for a friendly lunch and researched in L'Isola del Sole, where I find the smiles and the frankness of the wonderful Sardinia.

Excellent Sardinian cooking with original ideas. Particularly like their Vermentino white wine and Cananau Riserva red even if the glass size is small.

Original perfectly seasoned Sardinian cooking. Outstanding pasta made on the premises.

It is a home away from home with excellent and fresh food - my first choice in Putney!
