It’s no secret that Jamie Oliver can cook well, but does that mean his chain of restaurants can provide us with food that tastes as if Oliver himself were cooking you a meal at home? Well, yes.

Once you get past the superlatives on the double-sided menu {Our Famous Prawn Linguine, Jamie’s Sausage Pappardelle, Ultimate Lamb Burger, Funky Chips} you realise you’re quite spoilt for choice. We suggest you order a drink from their vast drinks menu while deciding; we tried the Vanilla & Lemon Martini and loved it!

So what should I eat?

Start with the Wild Mushroom Bruschetta, or the Crispy Squid. For the main course, we recommend Jamie’s Sausage Pappardelle {the crunchy bread crumbs really take the dish up a notch}, or the Spicy Chilli Lamb pizza {super crispy!}. We would have liked to sample the Grilled Pork Chops or the Lamb Chops Scottadittoh, but neither were available at the time.

Desserts include Tiramisu {with a hint of orange, yum!}, crunchy almond tart, pannacotta, brownie, and a sweet sorbet, which are all good.

What does it look like?

The decor is rustic, yet modern: An open-plan kitchen half hidden behind a brick wall on one end, a long bar at the entrance, comfy booths, blackboards with the day’s specials on them, a wall that has garlic, tomatoes and chillies hanging off it, and a colourful ‘chandelier’ made with bangles.

So, we’re saying

Snag yourself a booth at Jamie’s Italian to enjoy an easy, comfortable night out with family or friends, over drinks and dinner.
