A good Italian restaurant

Very good for Italian dishes and prices very reasonable. Location not ideal, long walk from Marina Rubicon and also quite a way from Playa Blanca centre but when you get there the welcome is great. Pasta choice is very good.

This was our first ever visit to The Italian Job, depite having been to Playa Blanca for many years. Excellent Italian food - we didn't have pizza but several other diners did and they were HUGE! The Spagetti Bolognese was probably the best we had ever had. For dessert my husband had the Tiramisu , a very generous portion, which... More

We came across two restaurants with this name, one across the road from Hotel Princess Lanzarote and one directly on Av de papagayo toward the ferry port from the Hotel this review is for the latter though I assume they're run by the same people. Our first meal here was so good we decided to go back on our last... More

Have visited this restaurant a couple of times as it is just over the road from the Lanzarote Princess, where we stayed. The food is always very good and the service is friendly. It's a little away from the centre of Playa Blanca, but its well worth hunting down.

After 4 trips to Playa Blanca, extensive restaurant research and staying right next door, I was surprised to find such a gem so close to us that we have missed till now. We stumbled upon The Italian Job looking for something quick and easy after a day's travel and with a tired 1 year old. The menu looked like it... More
