“Great food, great service and atmosphere!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

The menu and wine list offer a great variety for a strip mall restaurant. The bread is baked fresh and absolutely delicious. Try the gnocchi - cooked to perfection and sauce not too rich. Service was a bit slow (don't go there too hungry) but food was made with care.

“Good Italian Food”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

The Oxnard area is all fast food. The Italian Job is a nice sit down restaurant with great service and good food. The Channel Islands harbor needs more good restaurants it such a great place. I had the there pizza for an appetizer and was impressed on there thin crust. Our meals were all good and loved the atmosphere. It is a must try for that area.

Authentic Italian food at theChannel Islands Harbor! Waitress Gina was excellent with explanations of the dishes, agreeable to change and perky attitude even at closing time. Highly recommend the fish with pistachio horse radish crust!

“mixed experiences”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This place is probably above average for Oxnard but we have had good and mediocre experiences. What we like best is the nice warm atmosphere.

“Best Italian Food in Oxnard”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

The Italian Job serves really authentic and creative tasting Italian Food. The pastas are fresh and have great homemade sauces and the pizzas are real-not the chain variety you generally find around here. They have a surprisingly good wine list for a local restaurant and most wines are very reasonably priced-and the have a no corkage fee on Wednesdays if you want to bring your own. If you're around the Channel Island Harbor in Oxnard and in the mood for Italian food, this is the place to go.
