We found this restaurant by chance, and what a find it was. We ate there four evenings in the week and had starters and main course and it was consistently very good indeed. I've had meals in other Italian restaurants for more than twice the price and they haven't come near to the quality of food and presentation here. The atmosphere is relaxing and, even though all the food is freshly cooked it was served surprisingly quickly. The pleasant personality of the waiter adds to what is a memorable dinning experience. Good for lunch too. Looking forward to another meal in this restaurant as soon as possible.

I don't normally write reviews but the meals I had here during my stay in Paignton were just so very good that I felt I just had to add my own recommendation to the many others here! I had both pasta and pizza dishes on different nights and immensely enjoyed what I had. The waiter is so friendly and welcoming and the decoration so homely and sweet that it really is a very pleasant experience just being at The Italian Job. I consider what I had to be the best Italian food i've ever tasted (and i've had some pretty great meals in Italy before)- wish I lived near enough to go regularly!

All food freshly cooked to order, so a slight wait for food. Staff inform you of this before you sit down, but the food was worth the wait. Great food, good portions and excellent service. Highly recommended.
