Friendly staff and good food

Visited this place twice in our week at Playa Blanca. Both times the food was very good and the staff were very friendly and offered good service. I would recommend this restaurant to family and couples.

Grabbed two pizzas as take out along with some calamari. Very friendly staff, quick turnaround. Enjoyed the pizza but it was a tad too salty for my liking. Calamari was very good. Had a look around the restaurant while we waited for our order- nice comfortable seating area with good views of the waterfront. My partner enjoyed his pizza even... More

The staff is friendly and helpful. We both picked pasta, and where not disappointed. You can taste that the ingredients are fresh. It's an explosion of Italian taste with herbs and spices. The price range is right above the usually, but still sheep. Since the food is great, we really didn't mind paying a few extra bucks. I will recommend... More

We recently visited The Italian Job over Christmas & New Year, the food was ok but the service was quite slow. Pizzas were good as our children liked them. Better places to go in Playa Blanca.

We had a positive experience at The Italian job with both children and grandparents along. The food is ok, not fantastic, but not to bad either. The service was great, and it was a relief with smiling waiters. Something we haven't grown custom to during our stay at Lanzarote. Can absolutely recommend it!

Visited here on Christmas Eve as we left it too late to get any where else and had seen it on trip advisor. staff are very friendly and the food is freshly prepared and very good. It's great when the service matches the food as it does here. We expected cheap and cheerful but were pleasantly surprised.

Went here a number of times during our recent stay & have always found the food to be excellent, well presented & reasonably priced, the staff are attentive & pleasant. Well worth a visit to this or their sister resuatrant Little Italy on the main road

The Italian Job makes pizza how you should get it. We really had a great experience in there as the waiters entertained our baby. Definitely come back!
