“Italian Experience in Jamaica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I went there with friends one evening and was a little surprised by the quality of the food. The trained chef seems to have a good grasp of not only the sauces, but the pastas and pizzas as well.

“If You Must Have Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Don't go to Jamaica for pizza. But, if you are staying in the best Parish (Portland) in Jamaica (my opinion) and are near Port Antonio, Italian Job will not disappoint. A real Italian is behind the counter here too!

“Best Italian Food Option in Port Antonio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Happened to walk by this place in our stroll around Port Antonio and thought we'd try it for dinner (though it's also open for breakfast and lunch). We had their garlic spaghetti and a pizza with onions, and enjoyed both. We also had a bottle of wine. It was good-sized meal for a reasonable price.

“Need a break from Jamaican Fare? Go here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Big green salads. Homemade Italian food. Place is towards the end of Harbour Street. Clean. Pleasant. Pizza. Priced more than Jamaican restaurants but worth it every now and then.

“A touch of Italian taste and style in Port Antonio, Jamaica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Imagine a noisy, lively and commercial little town close to the best beaches and the most famous lagoon of north-est Jamaica with a flavor of little Italy given by the genuine "The Italian Job" restaurant, which is centrally located in Port Antonio.
Here it is possible to taste a good variety of Italian starters and pizza (circle or slice) with competitive prices. I tried a good circle pizza margarita and two delicious and generous "Nutella" crepes.
The environment is clean and remind you to be close to the sea thanks to suggestive painted waves on the walls.
The service is Jamaican style, that is relaxed and pleasant.
Don't miss to talk with the restaurant's Italian owner Gianmaria, who might tell you the adventurous start-up of his business in the Jamaican little town and values and lacks of local people.
