Always a pleasure to eat at Jamie's when in Cambridge. Gluten free bread would have made it even better.

A very nice pizza enjoyed sitting in the sun. The staff were friendly. The only down side was having to wait a long time for our meal to be served.

Hello Yvonne, Thank you for your time and your positive review. Pizza and a sun, that is an excellent combination! Almost like having lunch in Rome! When you combine the two you can't go wrong. Personally I would also have Prossecco with it, but that's just me. Kind regards Przemyslaw Przastek Departmental Manager Cambridge More

Had a lovely meal with the family. Slight mix up with thebill which was easily rectified. Servers were great but as it got busy service slowed and was hard to get attention of the waiting staff.

Very tasty dishes and well cooked. What I liked most was that there are unique tastes that can't be found in any restaurant. The only dish I wasn't very satisfied with, was the salad because it was too plain, not something special. The rest were great though. The portions are not very big and the prices are a bit high...

We dropped in on Jamie's for dinner and were really warmly welcomed and well looked after - especially by Alessio: helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The food was excellent: the special, monkfish, and the porchetta. While the house white was fine, if you're fussy about wine you might choose a red up from the house red. Thank you.

A fantastic eating experience, the food was superb and this was complimented by the excellent service provided by Alessio who was attentive and very knowledgeable. The atmosphere was happy and relaxed. We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone's visiting Cambridge. To be fair all our visits to Jamie's restaurants have been superb.

Jamie's Italian in Cambridge was a delight to visit. I requested off the menu for my starter and both Kyle the waitress and the chef was happy to accommodate. The main needed to be sent back as the pasta was undercooked however this was not an issue. I would come again .

We popped in for a lunch with friends over the easter holidays (making the most of Jamie's kids eat free in the holidays scheme) Lunch with 3 young children can be challenging but the staff made everything simple-Vickie especially ensured the children were happy and entertained. A lovely lunch was had by all! As always we'll be back 😀

Description
JAMIE'S ITALIAN CAMBRIDGE 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. Based in a beautiful grade II listed building, with a magnificent domed ceiling and pillars that span the whole height of the room, Jamie's Italian Cambridge is the perfect setting to enjoy an Italian feast in style. Situated in the heart of the city centre, the restaurant is ideally located for anything from a casual dinner with friends or a working lunch to an intimate meal or a big celebration.
