I have vivid memories of my grandmother turning plain bread into amazing desserts, simple apples into incredible fritters sprinkled with a little sugar and honey, and even treating my sunburns with olive oil. Thirty years later, I still savor every meal and moment.Isola is proud to serve the finest local ingredients, dalla vite, from the vine. I hope you enjoy every bite, plucked from my family tree for your table. Buon appetito!

    Have you ever had a good experience and thought to yourself... "wow, they thought of everything!" That's how I felt after eating at Animae for my birthday dinner. From the silverware, clean ambiance, vibey bathroom stocked with feminine toiletries, and a friendly knowledgeable team who pays attention to detail... Animae truly gave me a birthday to remember. Shout out to Dick, one of the managers who allowed me to change my reservation the day of our reservation. Alright, let's talk about the FOOD. We ordered; - Tawainese Chicken 10/10. Crispy, crunchy, saucy. Everything you want fried chicken to be, but better. So much flavor and texture. You can't go wrong with this dish. - Mushroom Sisig. Yes. Yes. YES. This new summer item makes me want to come back for more. It had the perfect vinegar punch and spice to it. It complimented the Kare Kare and A5 Wagyu we ordered. - Kare Kare. Absolutely delicious. The short rib fell off the bone. It was tender and juicy. Vegetables (especially the egg plant) were cooked to perfection. It was my husband's first time having Kare Kare, boy did it set the bar! Pro tip: order a side of rice to enjoy the Kare Kare with. Let the sauce soak in the rice. You're welcome. - Japanese A5 Miyazaki Tenderloin (4oz) worth every penny. I didn't even need a knife to cut it. That's how tender it was. The taste alone was mind blowing. This dish is paired with Korean sides, my favorite was the dipping sauce with the egg yolk. We ordered two drinks as well. My favorite was the Artemis (a little more on the sweet side). My husband's favorite drink: Singapore Milk. The staff treated us like family. It was divine. Chef, Tara Monsod, if you're reading this... you and your team are killing it. Your hard work does not go unnoticed. Great job making the Filipino community proud!!! (Me included) This was our first visit here, will definitely not be our last.

    Terrific, fluffy shrimp omelette. Best omelette I’ve had in a long time. Great food, and who can beat a terrace experience on a lovely San Diego Sunday?? My only critique: they could have been more johnny-on-the-spot with coffee refills.
