To start with I was a bit dubious about the location but seating at the rear overlooks the beautiful villa marina gardens. We have had several meals as a family here, the bonus for us is that it opens at 5pm when the kids are hungry. Service has always been quick and friendly (even when v. busy) and the food has been excellent. Highly recommended, especially for families as well looked after! Can't wait to try it out during the summer, with those patio doors wide open...

We've eaten here a couple of times for family birthday celebrations - great pizza in pleasant surroundings with helpful staff. Lately we've picked up pizzas to eat at home & they're still delicious - just take out of box and blast them in a hot oven for a couple of minutes and they're as good as if eaten in the restaurant !

I booked a table for a part of 9 (my wife and 7 friends) for a pre-theatre meal on the 18th February, 2012. We were looking for a restauaurant close to the beautifully restored Gaiety Theatre, a Victorian masterpiece, and also for great food, a good atmosphere, excellent service and, most of all, a warm, friendly welcome!

What can I say except that the Italian Job ticked all the boxes. We were all served very efficiently and we all enjoyed the choices we made from the fairly extensive menu.

Moreover, it was reasonably priced, offering good value for money and we were finished the meal, without having to rush, in good time to attend a top class performance of Miss Saigon next door.

Yes, the Italian Job Restaurant simply could not be better located in the heart of Douglas on seafront n the lovely Villa Arcade, right next door to the Frank Matcham designed Gaiety Theatre and only a short walk away (under a covered Collonade) from the Villa Marina entertainment complex and gardens.

This restaurant is well worth a visit as it caters for young and old and offers service with a smile.
