He's no newbie to the restaurant scene. In fact, Italian restaurateur Fabrizio Bianconi has already carved a niche for himself at Via Veneto, Santa Monica; attracting distinguished Hollywood guests such as Steven Spielberg and the Beckhams with his provocative Italian gourmet and white glove service. It may not have the cult celebrity following as of yet (Bianconi took the helm in April 2012), however L'Isola looks set to match Via Veneto in all but urban setting. Housed within a pretty beachfront cottage overlooking the bobbing yachts in the harbour, L'Isola presents a romantic setting with the rustic chic of a traditional beach-hut restaurant.
Taking inspiration from the vintage luxury of a cosy Italian trattoria, L'Isola boasts a harmonious blend of dark woods and flashes of maroon, offset by the romantic glow of candlelight as the sun begins to set. Blending authentic Caribbean flavours with the pizazz of Italian gourmet, Bianconi presents a tantalizing fusion menu guaranteed to make your mouth water. Appetizers include juicy baby prawns (flavoured Tuscan-style with garlic, Chardonnay and red pepper) encased in a delicious Fritto Misto, along with fresh burrata, kicked up a notch with cured proscuitto. Oenophiles will be impressed by a menu of over 30 imported wines, including a select choice of light whites ideal as a tuna and cannelini salad accompaniment.
Opening Hours: Daily, 11am-3pm and 6pm-12am
