About

Jamie’s Italian is divided into two levels orientated towards a family friendly restaurant, the purpose to admire the lifestyle, cuisine and traditions of Italy. It is the perfect setting to enjoy pastas or pizzas with friends and family. Famous celebrity chef, British restaurateur and media personality Jamie Oliver, introduced the restaurant in Oxford in 2008. Since then, ‘Jamie’s Italian’ has expanded its operations and currently has 30 restaurant operating worldwide. The menu is extensive and offers the freshest of ingredients, sourced locally and imported directly from Italy. To further the Italian tradition’s, the pasta is made daily and can be viewed by the public outside the restaurant. Located in the heart of the CBD in Sydney, Jamie’s Italian reflects a traditional Mediterranean restaurant. The interior decor emulates tall ceilings and leather seating downstairs, with an open living plan for easy accessibility throughout the restaurant.

Food was fine, service was excellent. Music and noise level was not conducive to conversation, sound level was uncomfortable.
The size of your coffee cups needs attention, way to small tapering to next to nothing.

We had a few dietary needs and appreciated the time to explain which dishes were suitable.
The kids' meals had great variety and especially the burgers were enjoyed. I enjoyed my chicken with fresh peas and hazelnuts but the pasta smelled so delicious.
The desserts were also thoroughly enjoyed. My favourite... the lemon cheesecake meringue was so smooth and tasty and preferred it to the older menu's lemon meringue. The chocolate desserts also a hit. We appreciated birthday touch on dessert.

table was less than a meter from the door to the toilets, it was very unpleasant as it didn't leave much space or comfort

Food was above average

Waiter was very good new all the info about the food on the menu and he was also very friendly

Our waitress was amazing and so friendly without being false. I can't remember her name (sorry!) but she worked in the Jamie Oliver restaurant in Coventry Gardens previously and is an absolute asset to the restaurant

Dinner early in the evening before the opera. A menu which made sense quickly. Choices falling into place. Service attentive to the need for speed and accuracy. Fast footwork in the kitchen so that we did not have to rush. And food to enjoy. All before the evening crowd arrived. Great delivery!

The food was yummy and came out quickly, which was perfect as I was celebrating my graduation and needed to eat somewhere that was close to the Sydney Recital Hall, where the graduation was being held. Jamie's Italian was the perfect place to celebrate with my family, the service was great and it had the right feel to be celebrating something as momentous as a graduation.

Very disappointing experience, the cocktails were very nice and the wait staff were lovely but the real problem was the food. We had high expectations but the two meals we got had no flavour, the chicken in particular tasted like it had been microwaved. Would not recommend to anyone, would actually recommend to stay away

Loved this dining experience - food was amazing along with the service. Wait staff were attentive and wonderfully helpful and engaging.
Food was fresh, tasty and well presented.
This restaurant was flat out and yet this did not impact on either the quality of the food or the service and engagement of the customer
Would recommended this restaurant in a heartbeat and look forward to returning next time I am in Sydney

Very happy that you can now book ahead. A few years ago you had to line up. The staff very very informative and knew the menu. Nothing was too much trouble. We all enjoyed our meals although mine was only warm. I mentioned it to the waiter who was apologetic and said he would tell the chef. I was so hungry and the food so good i didnt kick up. Would definately return to try something different.

The waiter was fantastic. He was friendly and help our big table split the bill. The food was very avarage. My meal was luke warm and over cooked. The crab tasted fresh in the pasta so it was a shame. The good was fairly expensive also.

Enjoyed London "Jamies". A busy wet Friday night in Sydney, limited options for a pre theatre dinner with family and thought of booking "Jamies" in Sydney. An unexpectedly lovely evening. A marvelous waiter who made suggestions and allowed us to try a wine before we purchased a bottle. The sea food plank was delicious, the pastas full flavored and rustic and my aubergine main was fabulous. Top points to the yogurt panacotta.Will definitely return.

A bit disappointed, food was nothing special. I had squid and mussel pasta, there were two beards out of three of my mussels. Flavour was simple. Wine was mediocre. Service was nothing special.

Bought some country colleagues to treat them Italian style and it was a delicious treat. Great waitersss service. Intimate environs. Would not like to be a big person trying to fit into the bathroom facilities - very ordinary.

We loved our dinner at Jamie's Italian - it feels as though he is in the building. The menu was well explained to us by our waitstaff (lovely girl from Barcelona). She knew the menu well, and made recommendations which we appreciated. The service was slick, the meal delicious, a real buzz to the whole place. Desserts very Italian - we had pannacotta and tiramisu, both delicious. We don't live in Sydney but would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone or does, or anyone visiting, as we wer.

Thanks for having us last night. We had a nice time. Food was good & service was great. My friends, whom I treated to dinner, were very happy.
I liked it too apart from the fact of screaming baby pretty much throughout the whole dinner. Most of restaurants now have notices to clients dining with kids, if they cry or being difficult to comfort them outside not to disturb other diners.

From reception to service, the evening flowed very smoothly. The venue was picked by my daughter to celebrate her birthday and the choice was excellent. All three courses were carefully balanced and my sawfish was particularly splendid. Topped up by a relatively inexpensive remarkable wine, the evening was a great success and we will return.

I was not happy with the squid and mussel spaghetti. Very few pieces of squid and an expensive pasta dish. It was not consistent with my experience at Jamie's last time
