“Good place to go for a family celebration”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Went with a little trepidation as we normally go to Alessandros but had decided to try the Italian Job for an 18th birthday celebration with close family. Despite some of the poor reviews we found it to be a pleasant night out. The restaurant is set out with plenty of room between tables giving a nice roomy feel to the restaurant and a relaxed dining experience, not having to worry about banging elbows with the person sat next to you or making way for people to get past on their way in or out etc.

The food was really good and filling and the service could be improved but it was nothing a quiet polite word wouldn't fix. 2 people couldn't finish their pizzas so took them home in boxes.

For:- Relaxed atmsophere, good food, nice surroundiings, light and airy. space
Against:- have to use public toilets in colonnade,

“A great meal at short notice”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

We had been away for a few days so hadn't booked. The staff went to a lot of effort to fit us in, a good table too. The food was excellent and served well and pronptly.

“Best Italian Restaurant in the Isle of Man”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Having lived in the IOM for many years we have tried all of the local restaurants. The Italian Job provides a good atmosphere, friendly service, excellent food and wine. All this at sensible, affordable prices. We visit at least once a week and always receive a warm welcome and the same level of service and food.

“Terrible restaurant”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

My friend had the special! Chicken in a white wine mushroom and garlic sauce. Looked unappetising, tasted as bad as it looked! We had pizzas, very average. The special was swimming in sauce, with a salad, also swimming! The mushrooms were dry in the middle, like they had been frozen and rock hard on the outside, when the waitress came to take our plates she was astounded that the meal hadn't been touched and came back to show us the 'wild mushroims' whatever that was meant to prove? We left without an apology. Worst meal ever!!
