Great pizza, the way you should get it

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!

We visited here early Sunday evening when it was quiet inside, we experienced a lovely greeting, swift service and a good menu. Our small niggles about this place are that there's only one toilet, not so bad when we were the only people in there, but may be an issue if it's busy, and the other niggle were the ants... More

Visited The Italian Job on the last night of our holiday. Friendly welcome, ordered diet cokes, got full fat cokes. We all had a different variation of pizza, and the bruschetta. Bruschetta was lovely, garlicky and fresh tomatoes. 2out of 3 pizzas were very very salty, the base was caked in it! Was thirsty all night and the next day... More

Stumbled across this place after wandering along the seafront and into the commercial centre. Hidden away toward the back it looked very basic and unpretentious. Excellent service and friendly attitudes from all staff. Starters of fresh mussels and bruschetta then chicken dishes and a starter portion of an aubergine dish were all amazing. Excellent quality and would definitely return and... More

We have been eating here for many years. Although we don't visit every time we come to PB. The food is great, big portions and very tasty. We both had starters...brushetta and gator de patata. And shared a pizza. Bottle of red -€35. The chilli oil is very hot. But they do warn you. A complementary limoncello- home made is... More

The food here is very good (better than Mammia Mia in our opinion, but we did prefer the Pizzas at Casala Franco) but what is best is their service for kids, they immediately offered to make food for our daughter on our arrival and do small portions of all pasta dishes, we ordered a meat ravioli which our daughter loved....

After looking at Tripadvisor reviews We were heading for Casale Franco restaurant which is just above the Italian Job, but found it didn't open until 6 so, as we had a very hungry 5 year old, decided to give The Italian Job a go. I am glad we did - waiter was very helpful although a little difficult to understand.... More
