What a fabulous place. From beginning to end everything was fantastic. The pizza was superb, the service just as good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants an authentic Italian experience. Next time you're planning to go to Italy, don't bother. Go to lanzarote and eat here three times a day for two weeks. Totally fantastic place!

Definitely not a place to eat for a dressed up dinner. But takeaway pizza or snack and it was excellent, my children loved it and must agree was very tasty. Just not somewhere we would ever eat for a night out. But takeaway very good

Enjoyed meal at this restaurant. I had had their home made pasta which was very good and husband had pizza which he said was also good. Very reasonably priced.

Cafe style, enticing description on large menu, but food terrible- salty, oily bland and utterly disappointing. Food a primary school could dish up and presented in the same manner. I could not eat even half my meal despite being ravenous. £71 or €97, for 2course for 5people 1soft drink each.

I recently visited the Italian Job in Playa Blanca, the fresh margarita pizza was very nice. The menu is great and is somewhere I would have visited for an evening meal if I would have been in that area at night. The pizza was fresh and had some great flavour, I can't score this over 3/5 because it wasn't spectacular,... More

Excellent food and service. Found the place accidentally and returned two more times during our one week stay in Playa Blanca. We will definitely go back again!
