Isola Pizza Bar, which opened on India Street in 2012, is expanding into La Jolla by Spring 2015. CBRE's Jim Rinehart worked with the landlord and Isola's chef/owner Massimo Tennino to facilitate the lease of the 2,500-square-foot space, which includes a sidewalk patio, at 7734 Girard Avenue. Most recently, the site was occupied by Nosh Delicatessen.

The restaurant shared that it plans to relaunch by March or April after a renovation that will open up the space to natural light and give it a more contemporary look.

When it debuts, the La Jolla location will have expanded food offerings. The Little Italy outpost's kitchen doesn't have a full range, so they've relied on their wood oven to cook the bulk of the menu; in the new space, a more robust kitchen will enable them enlarge the menu to include more dishes, including a selection of housemade pastas.
