The Italian Job has been around for years, but we recently returned to it. It is located in a marina, but not directly on the water. There is indoor seating in a cozy, intimate space and also a patio for al fresco dining. We last visited on Thanksgiving weekend with friends and each person was very pleased with what they... More

We found The Italian Job Cafe while looking for another restaurant. First impressions were good. Quick greeting and seating. Server was with us quickly and gave us menus and water. Just after we ordered things went downhill, our table was wobbly but before I got a chance to bring it to our servers attention, a customer left the door open,... More

We went and we're served bead oil and vinegar right at our table. It's a quaint place. The chef is amazing and I hear highly trained. Music is offered some nights

Ate here with family, including a small child. The staff were great and catered to having a small child with us, including making creative menu changes. The tortelloni porcini was amazing, very rich and creamy sauce. My husband had the Bianca pizza, which was loaded with too many onions for my taste but he said was unique and good. Would... More

We made reservations since it was Friday night..even off season and were glad we did since it is a tiny restaurant. Servers were very friendly and extremely efficient. there was a rehearsal dinner/birthday dinner going on that took up... More

I visited this restaurant twice a year ago and could not wait to come back this year. I sat outside overlooking glimpses of the harbour. Served the lovely focaccia with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Fantastic peach Bellini. Ordered the warm spinach salad. This was ok . Not particularly warm or tasty and sadly I thought some of the spinach... More

We had a nice lunch outside at the Italian Job last week. Service was fine, food was good, nothing over the top. We had three different pasta dishes. My vegetarian friend asked for a special dish of pasta with pesto, not on the menu and her dish was amazing. The warm bread is lovely and our drinks were great.

It was a very nice dinner. They served warm bread with oil and balsamic vinegar as an appetizer and it was delicious! We shared pizzas that were quite tasty and they had a large beer selection. There was also a nice selection of desserts that were tasty as well!

Four of us arrived for an early dinner on Monday evening. Parking was free in the lot in front of the restaurant. We were greeted and seated promptly. We ordered beverages and server brought them along with hot bread. Bread was excellent with herb infused olive oil and separate little pitcher of balsamic vinegar to mix with. We ordered 2... More

Sometimes you go to a strip mall area and you take your best shot. The Italian Job was a nice surprise. We had veal, lasagna, fish and pasta. They were all very good. I can't say spectacular because I've had better but this was very good. Also it was reasonably priced for its location. Which, by the way, over looks... More
