Stopped in tonight knowing it was well rated but was surprised as to us it was a cut above the rest (and other high rated places). Staff were lovely and friendly, all Italian but spoke very good English with their attitude only adding to the atmosphere. Service was above required but not to the point of pestering, just genuinely attentive.... More

A hidden gem. In between the main road and seafront. Great place to have a pizza or a full meal out. A little bit less formal than sister restaurant little Italy. Food is really nice, service is excellent. I would highly recommend this for couples and families. Will eat here again on return to playa blanca.

Good for pizza and pasta, waited a while for food to come, and the dining area good be better, some of our party enjoyed the big portions, but I didn't find it made up for the quality, Tried but will not bother again

Found this place by chance one very windy afternoon! Dont let the location near a Burger King in a little complex put you off. Service was excellent and food of a good quality. Will return on our next visit for lunch if in the area.

We walked past the Italian Job several times before we went in, it is located on the edge of a shopping centre with a few other restaurants. The staff were great and so was the food and very reasonably priced too. I would have no hesitation to recommend this great little restaurant

We came across this little treasure whilst walking back to the hotel. We noticed them making the pizza's from scratch in the window and decided to go that night - and we are so glad we did! We ended up visiting on a few occasions as the food and service was fantastic! Everything tasted homemade and fresh and the staff... More
