isola pizza bar

Located in the heart of Little Italy, Isola Pizza Bar recently opened their doors, serving up an array of delicious pizzas using only the finest local ingredients. At first, I was a little concerned about the abundance of plaid-shirted bro-esque men present and the horrendous "Call Me Maybe"-type tunes playing in the background. But once Bon Iver's "Skinny Love" started playing and a few of the bros got their checks and left, I felt much better about the ambiance.




First we ordered the mozzarella e prosciutto bruschetta. The bread was perfectly toasted with a touch of butter and fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and salty prosciutto were all piled on top. 



For the main course, I decided on the arugula con l’uovo pizza. The crust was definitely the breadwinner [haha!] of this pizza: doughy in the middle and crisp on the outside. Toppings included mozzarella, parmesan, panna, truffle oil, egg, arugula and generous chunks of pancetta.


 

The service was efficient and friendly, the space was modern, the food was impressive and the wine list was extensive. With clean lines, dim but not too dim lighting and simple d├ęcor, Isola is the perfect spot for a date night or a feast with friends. 

{Isola Pizza Bar is located at 1526 India Street in Little Italy, San Diego}
