A partnership between Jamie Oliver and his Italian mentor, chef Gennaro Contaldo, Jamie’s Italian has won thousands of fans for its delicious and affordable food and its friendly and welcoming service.  The menu is based on dishes you’d find people eating all over Italy, made with care but delivered without fuss. 

The family-friendly restaurants see pasta being made onsite daily and also offer an award winning children’s menu. Jamie’s Italian are also committed to only using the best possible ingredients and all produce is high welfare and sustainable.

Since opening its first restaurant in Oxford in May 2008, Jamie’s Italian has become one of the biggest success stories in high street eating, as perfect for business lunches as it is for couples, young and old, as well as families.

Service was a little bit slow off the bat, but it also seemed like I was there during a shift change/lull in business. Once the waiter did come to take my drink order, I was served quite quickly thereafter. I was pleased at the atmosphere, as well. Very warm and quiet, especially considering how busy the area is. The herby lamb steak melted in my mouth.

Who eat here and love that cousin are not italian people. Bad quality food and mid-low quality service. I will put a cross on that restaurants. Never saty here again. He become famous about a legal action against McDonald's restaurant but the quality of his food is nearly the same. Many better italian restaurants in london at the same price range.

I went there with my 5-year old daughter. We had a really great meal. Their kids menu is great deal. For around 7 pounds you get homemade lemonade, a childrens main course and a dessert. It was incredible value for money. Will definately go again. Their winecellar (located just before the toilets) are boiling hot. I wouldn't go for their wine though. Stick with a pint of beer.

We needed something to eat and I fancied something not fussy but hearty and substantial. We had to wait 10minutes for a table but that is not unheard of in big cities. The waiter was great, the bar staff were friendly and the prices were average for London. We came away having eaten well and had no complaints. Good quick hearty food with no messing about.

I'll start by saying that the service was excellent. Our waiter was quick, friendly and attentive. I'll also say that the atmosphere is fun, loud and laid back. The desserts were excellent. So maybe, just go for dessert. The food was a little disappointing for the price. The menu had what appeared to me (as an American) to be a lot of British comfort foods. But the preparation wasn't what I would have expected for the price. Having said all that, I didn't leave hungry.

You have to wait without booking, but thats alright. Extremly kid friendly restaurant. Went there today with my little daughter, helpful, friendly and no complaints when even kids jump around a bit...every parent knows how kids are:) besides that great food!! Will go there for sure again. For the quality of food its also very reasonable. But again i think outstanding is the staff! And the food
