This restaurant's food was surprisingly better than I expected considering the outside of the restaurant and the decor. Our waitress brought our son's meal very quickly which was much appreciated. My salad was okay and my husband thought his lentil soup was a little bland (and he will eat anything). The pasta dishes were all very good, but were a little more expensive than I was expecting.

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.

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!

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.
