We took our visitor for a delicious Italian dinner and good wine. The servers where very kind and professional . The best part was that they were pet friendly at their outside patio.

I often forget this place is nearby. The bread is delicious and the pastas are good. It's not a huge place. The service is good even if there is only one waiter working.

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
