Fantastic meal, both me and my wife chose the spaghetti with crab for the main course and it was absolutely fantastic. The flavours left me wanting more. The waiter Chris was starting his first night at Jaimie's and he performed like he had been doing...More

Standard chain restaurant that could be in any western country. Room in the Assembly Room building is inviting. Once in though, it is loud and tables feel cramped for space. It was also so dark, we had to use the flashlights/torches on our phones to...More

Very disappointed that they did not know licensing laws in Scotland and so ruined our family celebration. Our 19 year old daughter had not brought ID as she was with her parents but was not allowed wine with us. Poor response from staff and management...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest

Description
JAMIE'S ITALIAN EDINBURGH A partnership between Jamie Oliver and his Italian mentor, chef Gennaro Contaldo, Jamie's Italianhas won thousands of fans for its delicious and affordable food since launching their first restaurant in Oxford in May 2008. The Jamie's Italian menu is based on dishes you'd find people eating all over Italy, made with care but delivered without fuss. The family-friendly restaurants are all about serving up rustic, Italian food made using the best possible ingredients, plus fresh pasta that's made on-site every day, and an award-winning children's menu, too. The spectacular Edinburgh restaurant is housed in the former supper halls of the Assembly Rooms on George Street, in Edinburgh's city centre. Perhaps their most elegant restaurant - grand ceilings, impressive cornicing and scarlet walls, teamed with red velvet chairs and chandeliers, make Jamie's Italian in Edinburgh an amazing spot for a special night out. The central location means it's easy to drop in at any time of the day or evening too.
