“A good evening out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This restaurant is great! Good food , excellent service and a nice atmosphere. Portion sizes are generous and there is something for all tastes. We arrived just before a show started in the Gaity Theatre so we had to return about 45 mins later as the restaurant was full. There are often concerts outside the restaurant so if you like music you can sit outside and combine the two! We went as a family of 3 generations and all enjoyed it. We wanted to return on the last night ( a Friday) of our holiday but unfortunately it coincided with a show again and the first available table was too late for us.

“Excellent food, brilliant helpful staff, good atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Visiting friends on the Island who insisted on taking us to the Italian Job as they said it was the best Italian restaurant on the island. It was about 6pm on a Tuesday and the place was full - the staff were very helpful and asked if we were prepared to wait 15 minutes which was no problem.
When we were seated the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable with the menu and were only too pleased to advise and make suggestions. I had the prawn chorizo tomato and garlic pasta dish which was amazing, the others had Tortelloni, (wonderful) Calzone and pizza. The portions are very generous for people like us who love their food. Prices very reasonable, we were so impressed we ate their 3 times in 2 weeks!

“Excellent value, good food an enjoyable meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We first visited two years ago and during our recent holiday we decided to revisit as we had enjoyed it previously. As a family of four with two teenagers the food was excellent quality and the portion sizes were huge!! Good value for money and we will be going again next time we are on the island.

“Food was OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Probably my fault, I had the fish and chips in an Italian restaurant, I'd had a lot of pizza the week before. The fish and chips were quite good. I would go back for a quick meal.

Great team of waiters & waitresses. Very friendly and humorous. Food was amazing and very reasonably priced. Really good choice on the menu which catered for our group of 10's varied tastes. Highly recommended.
