Beach Neighborhood Italian

Our first visit and we were very happy to find neighborhood referrals were totally correct, this is a great place. The menu is fairly wide, most of the faves and some interesting different stuffed pastas. We shared an appetizer and an entrée that was plenty for two. Decent wine list with one really... read more

A great atmosphere (quiet!), a lovely patio with water bowls for dogs, friendly staff and a huge menu. Our group chose the house salad with feta, grilled salmon salad with spring greens, fennel, asparagus, tomato and feta, and angel hair with some of the most delicious marinara we have ever tried. The menu offers so many choices, including thin-crust pizza,... More

We found this place by coincident. Whilst looking for a nice place to have dinner we just drove by The Italian Job Cafe. Already entering the place makes you feel home and welcome. True Italian style restaurant that reminds one of local restaurants in Toscany Italy. Menue covers all one expects. Especially the pasta part and pizze is great and... More

The Italian Job is a quaint place in the bay. I ordered the pumpkin ravioli at our server's recommendation, and it was delicious! My husband raved about his lasagna, too. The kids ordered margherita pizza and traditional ravioli. I tasted their entrees and could tell everything was fresh and made from scratch. The bread with vinegar and oil was a... More

A fantastic little Italian restaurant with a lovely atmosphere at great value. Try the pork chops and tiramisu!! I thoroughly recommend this little oasis.

I went to the Italian Job Cafe last night with my parents, and everything was outstanding, from the delicious food to the friendly, attentive service. It's a small restaurant and was packed to the gills because Wednesday night there is no wine corkage fee. But we ordered wine from the menu and were glad we did because it went perfectly... More

Really good Italian food and service. The desserts are very good and the spumoni ice cream cake is one of the best.

Love the food, love the atmosphere and we always go there when we want to spoil ourselves. We have also bought gift cards to give to our parents and they love it as well.

Small. Holds 50-75 people, does not look like much from the outside. But this place was great. Fantastic menu. Read that service might be slow but was far from that. Food was fantastic and original. There was something from everyone - salmon for the wife, pasta for the girls, and a great Italian herb steak for me! And we all... More

Small cute place. Overall good food. Bread service was good. The house salad was different than most and a welcome change. Split pea soup was a special item for around mother's day and was pretty bland. Spinach Ravioli was a step above the average ravioli. The pumpkin tortellini was the star of the evening! Who would've thought pumpkin in tortellini... More
