Isola Pizza Bar--Little Italy

El Chevere | Apr 29, 2012 09:51 AM

non-memorable. Checked out this new spot in Little Italy and was undwerwhelmed--blends in with many of the faux-Italian places here. They pride themselves on their wood burning oven pizzas, which had very little flavor. The crust was not charred and the cheese and sauce have very, very little flavor. Had a meat and cheese platter--unlike Bencotto which actually uses good Regianno cheese, Isola's meat platter contained crumbs of blue cheese and nothing else. They did pass out complimentary flatbread which y was quite good and set up my expectations for the pizza and the olive oil was good. However, I left disappointed and the place is not cheap. They've got a long way to go to ever get me to come back.
