We ate twice at The Italian Job during a recent stay at Playa Blanca. Excellent food, excellent wine choice, fantastic service and extremely good value for money. Please do not be put off because of the location, step inside and enjoy! Plus do you self a big favour and order the Tirasamu . Colin and Nina Swindon

In the unpromising Papagayo Shopping Centre, but a restricted view out possible from the main eating area. Helpful staff / fast service and pretty authentic pizza and pasta dishes made this fine for a family visit

Best food in the resort, we suffered soggy salty pasta all week before finding this. Freshly made, quality seafood, amazing experience. We went back and brought friends!

We never actually ate in the restaurant itself so I can't pass judgement. We did however get a takeaway 2 nights from here, The pizza was really tasty and the guy serving us was really friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend here if your looking for a wee night in the apartment with some good quality reasonably priced food.

The Italian job is definitely worth a visit good pizza and large portions we went there last year and felt it was better then place seems to have lost its atmosphere and the staff seemed distracted Although our waiter was very friendly it just just didn't have the flare it had last year But still worth a visit good value...

One of my favourite restaurants in the past, Situated at the Papagayo centre just off Dorada beach. I visited again last month and it's still very good, although not quiet as good as on my last visits. Fabio, the owner is a great guy, but is very busy running another restauarant in playa blanca, Little Italy. As a result he... More
