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

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

We stayed in Oxnard, Ca for only one night at the Embassy Suites Hotel. We drove down the street looking for a place to eat. It was Easter Sunday around 7pm and everything was closed down. We spotted the Italian Job Café. We were a family of four and went inside. We were skeptical because NO ONE was inside but... More

There's a relaxed, unhurried pace here that suits the restaurant's location at Channel Islands Harbor. The food comes out of the kitchen promptly, though; it gets to the table while it's still hot, thanks to the attentive servers. There are lots of choices on the menu, ranging from traditional fare like pizza and lasagna to dishes including fish that was... More

We love coming here whenever we are in the neighborhood for the last five years. Now the former employees are running it and are full of youthful energy and excitement. The food is wonderful and the ambiance is great. Not quiet, but then it is Italian! Do give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

I visited this restaurant with my fiancé when we were looking for an evening dessert. The restaurant was very busy, and there was a little wait. All of the food looked excellent, but we only partook on dessert and coffee. I chose the mixed berry sorbet, and she tried the lemon version. It was fantastic...three scoops, very cold, flavorful and... More

The Italian Job Cafe is not your usual Italian restaurant. The food is more upscale and the service attentive. Whenever we've been there, we've not been disappointed. We've ordered different dishes and every one has been very good. We definitely recommend this place.
