Went here last night as a special dinner, and had always wanted to go. Lovely location looking into the arcade in the centre of Norwich. The good: The atmosphere was lovely. The restaurant is lit softly and is really nicely decorated - neither too posh nor to shabby. Had a table as requested looking out onto the interior arcade. The... More

Went for a couples pre-Christmas/Birthday dinner. We had all pre-ordered our starters but we were just brought out the boards with a couple of the hot starters to share between 10 of us, when we had pre-ordered more- is this their way to save money!! The mains arrived, there was a supplement for my steak, can't understand why. It was... More

Table booked for 8pm but weren't actually seated till nearly 8.30pm and then in direct line of the main entrance, no other tables available and one of our table eventually ended up with her coat on. Waiter arrived to take order but when looking at his 'electronic' ordering device promptly declared "oh s**t" and ran off in the direction of... More

We went for Christmas dinner with work, we'd been waiting for the day for months. The first impressions were good, I had a lovely hand shaken mocktail which was a good blend between sugar and sharp. We were shown to a table upstairs. No one had taken our coats or shown us to a cloakroom so we had to use... More

Good atmosphere & service, friendly staff, but why on earth do the ingredients of the lamb chop dish have to be on a plank, balanced on two bloody great tins?

Popped in for lunch on our first visit to Norwich, as we usually eat at the Cambridge restaurant. We chose the sharing plank, crispy squid & artisan bread- all of which were delicious. Our waiter was very attentive, polite & knowledgeable (with a decent tale to tell). The only negative was that when we entered we were offered a table... More

Couldnt get in anywhere else on a Sunday evening as all e places we tried were closed, so Jamies wasnt a first choice, but it should have been. The food was excellent, and the service was too. All in all, a superb and,well executed,keal for 5. With wo bottles of wine and three courses each plus coffees, £207.00. will return.

Attended as part of a party of 10 who were made welcome from the off. The waitress we had was exceptional and handled the party really well, and with good humour. Nothing seemed too much bother for her; it really put the icing on the cake to our visit. The food was fantastic; full of flavour that tantalised the tastebuds.... More

I Donna Africa & Lorraine Ward had an absolute fantastic & fun dining experience at Jamie's Italian Norwich. I personally loved the warm & welcoming ambiance, beautiful adorned restaurant down stairs, with friendly and highly efficient staff.
