We have been here several times due to family booking it, it is over priced for what it delivers. Does it survive purely on the locals who can't be bothered to travel an extra 10 mins in to manchester. The place is dated, poor food and over priced. There are too many good Italians to waste your time and money... More

I've probably eaten in every Italian restaurant in Manchester City Centre but if I had a choice I would always go back to the Italian Job. The food is great, hearty Italian portions with home style cooking. The staff are all attentive, welcoming, friendly and chatty. They will go out of their way to ensure you are catered for. It...

Just a local trip for a birthday night out. The place was packed as ever and I like that. I'm pleased we booked. I had a great meal - ribs, seafood pizza and lovely house red. Followed by dessert and coffee. I really can't say more than it was all utterly lovely and we'll be back soon.

Although we live in Urmston. This is the first time we've been to The Italian Job for years. We thought we would give it a try for a change and to be honest it was just ok. Not especially good but not at all bad. So we wouldn't go out of our way to go back but wouldn't say don't... More

Visited on a Friday night - fully booked up but squeezed us in for a early meal.. Food fantastic - a true hearty Italian meal .. The ribs and steak amazing and kids loved their pasta and pizza - with the complimentary ice cream a lovely touch - recommend for a great meal out..

We have chosen this restaurant for New Years Eve meal and what a mistake it was! Maybe they had a bad day, I don't know, but honestly don't understand what all hype is about when people say that it's best Italian in Urmston. We asked for the bill halfway through main course and didn't even finish food. It tasted like... More

Booked a table by email and found the service to be very helpful. My husband proposed to me here on Valentines day 2013. We had a very tasty three course meal and the service was perfect... always available and friendly but not overly attentive. The bill was not excessive (approx £30 each) presentation was gorgeous and we would most definately... More

Not been in a while and was rather disappointed, the service was very dis-jointed where we sat near the back when the waiters opened the back door the temperature plummeted. The food was average, veg for the main came to the table when the meals had 95% eaten. The waiters where friendly but that won't be enough to make us... More
