Piping hot authentic Italian food, good service, perfect location for dining prior to enjoying a show at the Gaiety Theatre next door, with a connecting door straight from the arcade to the theatre stalls, no need to go out in the rain!

We visit the Island each year and never miss going to The Italian Job. Great atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff. Good choice of quality dishes including meat, fish and pasta.

We were desperately looking for a place to eat in the pouring rain, and were fortunate to stumble on the Italian Job. Nice, varied menu featuring authentic Italian food - not spectactular, but tasty and well prepared, and at a reasonable price.
