Can one still park at the parking lot across from Hollywood, to go to LaPatrona or Isola? Are they doing valet at Hollywood? Casino Royale was NOT doing valet parking in June.

Dined at Isola a month ago and they had valet parking. Didn't care much for the food, but the parking was easy.

OK, thanks. What did you have, that you didn't enjoy it?? We've been to LaPatrona before, and very much enjoyed it. Have not been to Isola before. If we went there, it would probably be for pizza, as we don't normally do Italian on island

We've been there twice. First time had a proper meal, think perhaps chicken parm or something and was not impressed. Second time went for the pizza since everyone raves about it. No flavor at all for us. How can a garlic and anchovy pizza have no flavor? We won't be returning.

Huh, that is disappointing, regarding the pizza.

We ate at Isola and LaPatrona quite a few times this last trip. Was never disappointed. As far as parking yes you can park in the SBR lot if eating there or using Aqua mania excursions.

Right there with you Elaine, we stay usually the two weeks at La Vista and Isola or LaPatrona are only options if we are just too tired to get in a car and drive. La Patrona has some decent food but again not great in my opinion. The pizza at Isola (same with other items) is ok, just in my opinion not worth making a trip for. So as far as parking for either if you are driving to a place, I would not pick these.


I prefer the Isle seat

We like the pizza at Juliette’s better than Isola if you are in that area.

Right in front of the restaurant or the back of the big building that he is part of . This is in Jordan Village and Carrefour also has a branch there too, hence no parking problem.

So many great and often missed little spots at Jordan Village and the Cupecoy area in general - Jules, The Spaghetti House, Fat Tony’s, not to leave out Bar Code and the Bodega. So many great and often missed spots and more that don’t immediately come to mind, not to mention the grocery store up there. A much smaller version but well stocked Carrefour and always easy parking.


Respectfully,

pat

Juliette's is a nice little bistro. Parking was right alongside the building when were were there in 2019.

Pat--regarding Fat Tony's, I wouldn't go there again on steak night, as it was WAAAY too crowded..

We’ve gone two or three times but we get there very early to avoid the big rush. I wonder if they do take out for steak night. That would be something to consider - sitting on the porch at BSV dining on a yummy grilled steak dinner I didn’t have to cook while watching the ships come and go in the setting sun……… 👍👍

They definitely do takeout, as I saw lots of people doing that last time.. They had live music, so that was nice, but it was just way too crowded for me, even without distancing issues..
