Description: JAMIE'S ITALIAN BRIGHTON A partnership between Jamie Oliver and his Italian mentor, chef Gennaro Contaldo, Jamie's Italian has 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 lovely Brighton restaurant is located on Black Lion Street, a stone's throw from the seafront, nestled within Brighton's famous Lanes. The rooftop terrace is a great spot to enjoy a drink and a bowl of our freshly made pasta or a burger after a trip to the beach, or relax in one of the cosy booths and watch the chefs at work in their beautiful open kitchen. There's something for everyone here, whatever the occasion - a quick bite with friends or a big family dinner - come in and soak up the atmosphere while you tuck into some delicious Italian food.

“Great service, lively atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2011

I have eaten here on several occasions now and never been disappointed. If you visit with children, they have a great kids menu and they are made to feel most welcome. The only time I have sat upstairs, I asked to move downstairs as it lacks atmosphere compared to the downstairs area. The pasta dishes come in two sizes and I found the smaller size ample for lunch when accompanied by a salad. The fish is beautifully cooked and i would certainly order the catch of the day again.

“It's okay....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2011

But I cook as well as this, if not better (!) at home, to be honest. Nothing really special, even after three visits. A bit of a rip off really.

“Imaginative cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2011

This is always busy. The food is tasty simple wholesome and delicious. The fish stew was really memorable. Prices can add up as everything is charged individually.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2011

A group of 10 arrived for the set Christmas menu, it was well priced at £30 per head and we were just looking to get together rather than for the food experience. However, the food was absolutely great, really fresh and tasty. The restaurant was full to bursting but the service was also excellent, there were loads of staff and they were all efficient and pleasant. We will return.

“Great service and OK food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2011

Had a nice meal here. Really enjoyed the decor and ambience and the food was very nice. I suppose given the name we expected something `really special` and what we got was something `very good` but we had absolutely no complaints. The service was faultless - the staff were really efficient and cheeful - and I would certainly go there again
