I went there yesterday at lunch time, to bring our London trip to an awfull delicous end. We had a little time pressure because but we had a great time there. There is a huge ammount of real italian dishes on the menu. Even regional classics like Arrancini, which are only served in Sicilia. Every dish has the special influence... More

We made reservations for dinner 5 months before flying to London, we are both big fans of all of Jamie's TV shows and love his cook books.. We were not disappointed, in fact we went back a second time. Despite being in Covent Garden where one would normally expect to pay a premium, our dinner for 2, including 1 dessert... More

After watching Jamie on TV for years, I was looking to try this on my first visit to London. The menu promised home made pasta & sounded amazing. The waiter ( he was great ) sold us on the special pasta of the night. Unfortunately Jamie obviously wasn't there to oversee the operation! Al dente pasta? I'd call it way... More

I loved that it was so close to Piccadilly Circus. The buzz in the air around this location is really fabulous. For the restaurant itself, the food and service was fine but it was really nothing special. The fact that it is a Jamie Oliver restaurant sets a certain expectation, but I found it to be just average and akin... More

We wanted to have dinner at Jamie's Italian unfortunately only several lunch spots were left so we booked, a few days in advance, a lunch. Arriving at the restaurant it was packed with people. Many people were waiting for a table. Glad we made a reservation. The atmosphere of the restaurant is good, but tables are very close to each... More

My husband, my daughter and I visited Jamie's Italian for lunch yesterday (Sunday). This review is not about the service, which was very accommodating and friendly (hence the two stars - otherwise it would have been less than one). It is about the quality of food. Firstly, the location and atmosphere of the restaurant was nice, suitable for a family... More

This is rare as it exceeds expectations. Busy at lunchtime so best to book. Great menu, ambience, staff and food. No house beer and they had no bread for one of the starters though which is odd. Not cheap but good value
