Two visits in one week - wish we were 1000 miles closer. The food is good and is just a little different from what other places serve. Very nice wine list for a smallish place.

The Italian Job has good ambiance and is conveniently located for visitors to the harbor. The food is well prepared but not a wow. With lots of choices in the area I'm not inclined to revisit this restaurant.

Down the street from the Embassy Suites, We stumbled upon this place and the food was excellent! Solid service, decent wine prices and sauces that weren't overwhelming. Great job!

I recently was visiting the Ventura/ Oxnard area during Spring Break. I was in the mood for Italian food and found this thru Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint ! I had Lasagna. They noodles were handmade. DELICIOUS ! I followed it with Terra-Misu ( spelling?) for dessert. FANTASTIC This place has a well- deserved high rating !

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.
