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.

Me and my boyfriend were looking around in Norwich for a resteraunt to go to and ended up deciding to go to Jamie's. What a suprise we were in for. The menu had so much to choose from- pasta to roast duck. The service was great and we were greeted with a warm smile. I normally don't like olives but... More

We love the food, service, the ambience, the location, decor - just really, really nice. We eat here regularly as a family and are never disappointed. There is a buzz about the place that adds to the overall experience so clearly we are not in isolation with our views.

This is right in the centre of Norwich at the entrance to the Victorian Royal Arcade and the fascinating style and décor certainly fit well with the period. The ambience varies from the quite downstairs at the window seats onto the arcade to the busy body of the restaurant and upstairs. The staff are very friendly, helpful, informative and efficient....

We arrived at the restaurant and were seated very quickly by polite and friendly staff. We ordered our drinks but were surprised by the fact my husband couldn't have a pint shandy as they had no pint glasses!!! The drinks, red wine and lemonade were extremely overpriced, as was the food. We did have problems with one of the meals... More

I was spending a few days in Norwich with my friend and, prior to going to the Theatre, we had an early supper here. The setting is excellent; as we had a window seat, there was a great opportunity for 'people watching'. The waiter brought menus and got us drinks immediately and was very friendly and attentive. The menu is... More

Waitress (Lisa) picked up the fact there were newly weds in our party and produced a surprise 'congratulations' with dessert- a lovely touch. Really friendly staff, good service and food. Another great Jamie's experience - we have eaten in Oxford and Brighton. The Royal Arcade setting is a bonus, especially in the evening with the beautiful arcade lights.
