“Good Food in Nice Surroundings!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Pre-booked to dine at The Italian Job and we were not disappointed - the food was good (not fantastic) but the service was 'hit or miss' - some waiters were extremely friendly whilst 'others' were surly (no dedicated waiter). The ice cream desserts however, were delicious! The environment inside the restaurant (which only opens on some evenings) is light and spacious but the toilets are located outside the restaurant (in the main small shopping mall).
A very family friendly place (lots of children) and so a little noisy for an intimate/romantic or business dinner. Looking for a quick, reasonably priced meal - The Italian Job would not be a bad choice. Would I return - 'yes' but not for a special occasion!

“Bad Service!!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

The service at the restaurant was terrible. My friend and I arrived (we're both 20) and the waiters treated us very badly because we didn't have a reservation, even though it wasn't busy, we didn't have children with us and we're of a younger generation then the average people that were in the restaurant. They ignored our table and told us that we would have to eat quickly because the table was reserved at a certain time, even though it wasn't. The food was delicious and there were no other problems other than the rudeness of the staff.

Arrived on a Sunday evening not booked, place was very busy but a table was found. Staff were very friendly and helpfull.The food was very good and not overpriced, not top end Italian but still excellent value for the prices charged, the wine was ok as well. Overall it did not disappoint.

“Excellent surroundings.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

We arrived on a busy night and were seated outside in the arcade which turned out to be a bonus, it was bright airy and warm and added to the occasion. The food was good and the portions large would recommend highly.

“Great place for pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Me and my son are visiting the Isle of Man and stumbled upon "The Italian Job" Pizza place in Douglas 25/04/13. Decided to get some pizza but the place has evening hours only.. so had to come back later to eat (around 7:30pm). Garlic Bread was pizza dough in an entertaining way and very tasty and pizza was delicious. Among other things - Four very attractive gents eating at next table... :) Would recommend and frequent again...
