Lovely little restaurant. Staff very nice and no rush or pressure put on us. Simple but satisfying. Nice choice on menu and portions a good size. We shared a pizza and were stuffed.

We ate here twice during our stay and i have to say that this was just excellent! The Sciatelli(?) was superb and would eat a plate of this any day of the week! On all previous visits to Playa Blanca, we have never found this restaurant, But we have now and will be back - excellent.

After traveling a whole day from northern Europe we went out in Playa Blanca in search for a dinner. Ended up at this little Italian trattoria in very "touristy" environment. Their homemade pasta was very good. And the garlic bread was delicious. Nice staff OK pricing

Ate here twice on a recent trip to Playa Blanca. The Italian Job is a down to earth, friendly and reasonably priced authentic Italian, with great homemade pasta, gorgeous pizzas with crispy light bases and some decent wines. Staff are very friendly, service is swift and polite and you'll be well looked after. A must visit if you like Italian... More

They need to get that island mentality out of their restaurant as they were a bit too lax for my taste. Not entirely professional if you ask me.

Without doubt the best food we ate in Playa Blanca. We ate out 6 times on our stay in Lanzarote and the Italian Job was by far the best. Attentive staff and well priced.

Been to the Italian job a few times now. I only wish I could move it to Glasgow as it is one of the best Italian's I have had. We have s couple of really good ones back home but this is special. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

Location is very convenient for Playa Dorada, the kid keeps insisting on coming back for another lasagna. Not that we mind, as calzone and risottos are wonderful as well. Everything is cooked fresh, the food is amazing!
