“Best place for dinner in Lanzarote”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Went to the Italian job for my wife's birthday. Simply the best Italian food on the island ! The bruschetta starter is magnificent and make sure to try the Tiramisu for dessert.

“Best Italian in a long time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We ate at Little Italy in Playa Blanca, (not at Marina Rubicom which has similiar name). Great food, really authentic Italian and great value ( soft drinks, wine, garlic bread, salad and 3 main meals was less than £40). Waiters were charming and very attentive without being annoying. We returned 3 times on our holiday as we tried elsewhere ( La Gondola) and it just was nowhere as good as Little Italy. It's a bit unassuming from the street but a real find. Pizza, risotto, and you can design your own pasta combination. Yum. Already missing it.

“Now Two Restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

"The Italian Job" is a superb Italian Restaurant, but we tried a spin-off named "Little Italy" do not get confused with "Afrodite Little Italy", the "Italian Job" and "Little Italy are owned by the same person.
The food was exceptional as you would expect from this man.
It is located more centrally in Playa Blanca in the square opposite the local church. If you like Italian food give this restaurant a try.
