We decided to try as we had not eaten in a Jamie's before. Positives were spacious well laid out restaurant, very friendly and welcoming staff could not fault and the best child's highchair for once we did not battle with our little one trying to escape. The food although tasted ok was definitely child portion size. The oxtail lasagna was... More

I'm telling everyone. Visit Jamie's Italian. A restaurant with a rustic Italian vibe. Lots of suitable dishes for vegetarians and other dietary requirements and many healthy dishes. I recommend the truffle tagliatelle due to its creamy sauce and cheap price. Good prices and friendly staff allow Jamie's Italian to stand out from the many other restaurants in gum wharf quays....

Good service, nice food and good value especially when kids ate free over Easter combined with a free glass of wine as part of the Gold card membership. Would return.

Anyone that has visited Gunwharf will know the choice of restaurants on offer to eat at. Well, Jamie's Italian is up there with the best, never tried one of Jamie Oliver's Italian chain before but it won't be the last time we will eat at one. From the moment we entered we were greeted by smiling, pleasant efficient staff. Had... More

Had a lovely lunch here today. We were especially impressed with the children's meal, my daughter devoured the organic salmon in a bag. Service very good. Table was all laid ready for our reservation with great kids packs to keep them amused. Would certainly return!

Food was ok, price was high, service was slow. Don't get me wrong nothing was bad, it was just a bit underwhelming. Portions were quite small also. Would eat there again but it wouldn't be a first choice

Thank you for the comments. We have a lunch menu at just £11.95 for 2 courses Monday - Friday or an evening menu at £14.95 for 2 courses Sunday - Thursday if you're after something a little more cost effective. I hope you try us again! More

Kids eat free is a big bonus. A big brash fun restaurant. Good food, not big portions, but great flavours. Service lets it down when very busy. Needs better co-ordination between team leaders and staff to avoid customers being missed out. Basically, must improve their system of meal delivery. The staff are actually very well trained for what they have... More

Jamie’s Italian is a contemporary and informal restaurant with a menu that reflects Jamie Oliver’s passion for authentic Italian cooking, delivered with his own unique twist on classic recipes. Beautiful rustic dishes are created using carefully sourced, higher-welfare ingredients for the best flavour, but still at great value. This is a relaxed, affordable and accessible environment where the style, atmosphere and menu can be easily adapted to suit any occasion.


Child friendly; great value, quick lunch; special occasions; group bookings, party planning.
