I was looking forward to trying this place with a friend because I'd heard many good things about the food. The food did not disappoint. The pasta I ordered was well prepared and delicious. The starter we got was also excellent. The thing we did...More

I have been to a few Jamies Italian restaurants and this is one of my favourites. Very good service at my visit. A pleasure to have the epic tiramisu.

We stopped at Jamie's for dinner. We enjoyed the food and the Spanish waiter was very friendly. We were surprised that the Restaurant was half empty, expected it to be busier.

This restaurant is light and airy with really nice staff and the food was OK. We like this chain and I wanted it to be better than it was.

Ideal for that lunchtime treat. Good food at a reasonable price with very friendly staff. The Carbonara was very good but described at creamy whereas it was, in fact, not so but spicy.
