Escape to Italy
Take a break from local delights and head to L’Isola for sophisticated Italian cuisine. Fresh, fine ingredients are imported directly from Italy to create unique dishes like Spaghetti Allo Scoglio (with seafood) and Risotto Primavera, as well as grilled rack of lamb and breaded veal, all served in an elegant ambience on the western coast of the island. This is truly the Italian spirit brought to the beautiful island of St Barts.
