I really like pasta and I was SO happy to find this place in Port Antonio! Good taste and good value. AND they serve Campari and white wine:) I didn't try the pizza but it seemed very popular.

On a trip to Italy we got off the train in Bologna and within a half an hour we were headed back to Rome...just a bad vibe. Similar experience here, probably won't go back. Although they have the requisite checkered table cloth they could improve on the industrial fluorescent lighting; take a cue from the second floor café up the street.
Ordered two dishes here; spaghetti bolognese and pizza. First the bolognese had very little sauce, was dry chunks of ground beef with very little seasoning. The pizza dough was thick and doughy, not cooked properly. Could not finish both dishes, they need to learn to cook better.
Wine selection was pretty good for the area however.

I loved the pizza here and the price was very reasonable. This place isn't fancy but who cares when the pizza is this good! The one problem most pizza places have, in my opinion is perfecting the dough but this place has no problems there! I will be indulging in some pizza at Italian job very very soon.

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.

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!
