Visited with 3 other work colleagues and, have to say, is one of the best restaurants I have visited in a long time. Great food, great prices and fantastic service. Don't be put off by it looking closed from the Arcade doors, it's a real treat of an authentic Italian with a family feel.

I was looking for a restaurent near to my centrally located B&B and struck lucky with the Italian Job. The food was delicious - I recommend the Bolognese Calzone! It is also reasonably priced with very good customer service. I would certainly return.

Had a great meal at this restaurant. Beautifully presented and delicious. Staff helpful and polite. Went midweek and it was very quiet which is a shame. The restaurant is a little bit hidden away in the arcade. Thouroughly recommend this place.

To be honest at the prices charged here I expected better. The staff were also doing that very obvious 'up selling' by trying to get you to buy more which is rather annoying. Food seemed overly salty too. I've had better pizzas from take away shops! Overall it was expensive for what we got and the beer selection was poor.

Went for lunch today with my parents, husband and daughter. Fantastic food and lovely service too. I think the gentleman who served us was the manager and he was lovely and very attentive, nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely go again when on the island. Must make more effort to come to IOM and a meal at The Italian... More

Just arrived in the IOM and wanted to get some food, this was the closest to my hotel. Food was good, fresh and then service was fast. They shut early so be careful to get there before 9pm.

We were starving and had a little time so we popped in to The Italian Job for a quick bite. Instead of "quick food" we were treated to delicious well seasoned Italian cuisine, although it was on our table before you could say Cosa c'è sulla lista dei vini? Four of us tried four different dishes, and we loved it... More

Douglas has few places open in September so tried here and we would recommend it. The service was friendly and quick and the food tasty and value for money. Definitely try it.
