We visited after finding out about the £20 set menu offer.....what can I say other than EXCELLENT! The service was brilliant, the staff knowledgable, the food fantastic and we weren't rushed to leave our table. P.s the polenta fries were one of the best things I have ever eaten!

We were mixed group ageing from 23 to 88 and all agreed that the menu and the daily specials were excellent. As a gold club member we received the complimentary aperitifs and a limoncello which was a nice touch. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about each of the dishes and took time to explain these to our party. A particularly... More

I was quite disappointed by Jamie's Italian after having heard so many good things about it ! The food was very good, however the dishes were too small and quite expensive... I would like to come again in order to give it another chance !

We booked a table very excited to try this return but unfortunately it was terrible let down! We were greeted by the host who barely looked up at us and then just stormed off to our table throwing the menus on the table. I have never encountered such a rude person!! We ate and left as quickly as possible as... More

Wow....Jamies is our special treat place! We came for dinner this time, the Sea Bass special was amazing. & the special Lamb starter was to die for (nearly asked for that as a main course too!) Staff are so so accomodating, seem to instinctively know when to check on you & when to leave you alone. We've never felt hurried,... More

We visited Jamies in Norwich on a bank holiday, we were surprised to find it quite empty, we were asked where we wanted to sit, we opted to sit up stairs, which was a mistake. Upstairs is more akin to a canteen, and the acoustics make it extremely noisy, even with the few people that were there, if you get... More

Am a regular at Jamie's Italian and usually have good experiences except for the occasion last week which was awful. We had booked a table at Jamie's for my dads 50th birthday so clearly it was a special occasion which was ruined by an awful meal and also awful service. Our waiter was very moody and unwilling to help for... More

The food is what you would get from a chain restaurant. The tiramisu was huge and it had loads of alcohol in it, the seafood pasta was so so
