Serving temptingly fresh and flavoursome creations from world-famous chef Jamie Oliver, Jamie's Italian evokes the vibrancy and passion embedded in traditional Italian cooking and culture. A homely neighbourhood vibe is inspired by the rustic and relaxed ambience of the 'Italian table', with delicious flavours from the menu including truffled turkey Milanese, or a colourful seaside risotto.

Post shopping late lunch

Have heard mixed reviews of restaurant but for us it was a positive experience. Perfect for a relaxing and delicious late lunch on a wet and windy day post shopping in Norwich. Quirky starters and well above average pasta and burger. Creative menu. Excellent staff and service.

We booked a table and visited the next night. When we got there on time we were asked to wait... and wait.... After 20 mins of waiting (without a drink or anything) I chased up a waitress who appologised and took us to a table, told us all about the food, extras and options. Great. We looked at the menu,...

Great atmosphere, good service, always enjoyable. We always like to be upstairs, even if very busy they always find us a table.

My family and I have been to Jamie Oliver's in Norwich three times. The first was in the first week of it opening and it was great. We have been twice since then, each time the standards have dropped. Now it just has a feel like anywhere else that pumps out frozen food junk food. Sure, the quirky settings and... More

Lovely flavours, great staff, fast service (but not rushed). Tend to sit every party together unless you ask. That's really the only failing. It might be good for the staff but not for a quiet space. Huge restaurant space upstairs. Proseco yummy. Only 4 or so parties in at 5:30pm.

We have been here several times and had different experiences. The food has ranged from good quality pasta to an awful heavily over salted crab dish. The staff also vary from pleasant to over familiar edging on rude. The prices are more than their value generally unless you find one of their deals. Sitting upstairs near the windows is really...

We ate in the Norwich branch for my nephews 30th birthday. I had the sea bass. The first had to go back as it was raw inside. The waitress didn't seem much bothered but did bring a replacement The second was obviously my plate of food after being zapped through the microwave. I obviously rejected it. The third effort was...

We ate late lunch here and both opted for the romarin cauliflower soup and home made bread. The soup was excellent . The staff were pleasant. The place was very busy at 2-30 and I liked the décor. We will visit again next time in Norwich.

I and a visiting friend went here for lunch. The food was excellent. Both the turkey milanese and crab spaghettini were first class. The extras (we has a portion of garlic/rosemary chips and a portion of vegetables to share) were small and severely overpriced - which detracts from the pleasure of the main course. The desserts were delicious, and the... More
