I have walked past this particular Jamie's Italian many times over the years and finally went in for the first time last night. The restaurant was pretty much full by about 8 o'clock and had a lively atmosphere. The service was still very quick and the staff were friendly and chatty. I ordered the prawn linguine, which I was very... More

We have eaten at Jamie’s Italian before but not this one, so knew what to expect, though the décor at Kingston is more fun. We arrived at the restaurant early evening. We were greeted at the door and taken to our table at the back of the restaurant. The décor of the place looked fun and walking past the kitchen... More

I've heard a few not-so-good reviews of Jamie Oliver's various outlets, and so I have to say I was a little sceptical about finally dining here. Walked in without a reservation on a Sunday mid-afternoon, to find the restaurant fairly busy. We were seated straight away by a very friendly waiter. She was knowledgeable about the specials (of which there... More

We booked a table and arrived on time but still had to wait in the tiny bar area for about 20 minutes before our table was ready for us. The service was good initially but the waiter became less attentive as the restaurant became quieter surprisingly. The main courses were very disappointing and mine was completely tasteless. It seemed that... More

This was a simply excellent meal all round, which took in four of us. We had booked early on a gorgeous Friday evening as we had a theatre event as well. We had three courses, a couple of bottles of really tasty pino grigio, at least one or may be two of the specials (a pork belly was the stand... More

Despite having booked a table and arriving well on time (my wife and I were going to the theatre afterwards), we were left in the bar area for half an hour until a table became ready. We were shown to a table outside the main dining area, surrounded by young families so the atmosphere was a little less 'grown up'... More

Came here today with my sister and 18 month old niece. We were all made very welcome and given a choice of where to sit where there was room for the buggy. It was very quiet when we arrived, but even when it got busier the service didn't waiver at all. The food was lovely with a great range to... More

My first visit to a Jamie Oliver restaurant on Saturday, and a bit disappointed. I had a meatball pasta which was over-heavily tomato flavoured, and came with just four (small) meatballs - a bit stingey at over £11.50 dont you think Jamie ? My companions all had different dishes, most of which seemed somewhat on the small size. The wine... More

I am friends with a lot of Jamie's haters, but I don't get the animosity: it's a perfectly decent, if generic and unexciting, place to go. My rating is slightly lower than might otherwise be justified/justifiable because there are far more interesting places to visit for a similar standard of food, service, atmosphere, decor, etc.

Just got back from here and the food was lovely! We had the lamb lollipops and the crab spaghettini which was delicious and a huge portion of pasta! My son had the sliders which he ate all up along with the side shake a salad! Puddings equally amazing with the strawberries and frozen yogurt and the epic brownie! Lovely waitress... More
