Check the timing and see if it is set correctly and if it is steady. Unsteady idle could be caused by the timing jumping around, and if it is jumping around you've got some slop in the either the timing chain or distributor, or both.

At a shop? If so take it back and have them look. If it isn't something they did I'm sure they will tell you what's wrong.
