Overview of Jamie's Italian

The ‘Jamie’ in Jamie’s Italian is the “Naked Chef” himself Jamie Oliver, British chef extraordinaire, restaurateur and media personality. Jamie says he should have been Italian as he totally admires the Italian lifestyle, cuisine and traditions. Jamie’s Italian is his homage to rustic and simple Italian dishes, what you would find ordinary folks enjoying over in Italy. Jamie’s Italian is also focused on using the best seasonal ingredients sourced locally and in Italy. Pasta is made fresh daily in the restaurant’s front window where the public can easily check it out.

Jamie’s Italian aims to bring good and authentic Italian food to the people at good value as well. The restaurant is well designed, featuring a lot of intimate corners that make the ambience friendly.

    Great night out Saturday night with family from out of town. Food was as good as expected, and the bill for the evening very reasonable. Only issue was slow drinks service but overall the timing of the meal was spot on. Will go back.

    Very disappointing, we won't be returning. Our pasta meals were undercooked, very hard to chew and almost cold. The hot chips were the worst I have ever tasted - lukewarm and soggy and couldn't taste the garlic or salt, they were truly awful. The pavlova was more like a hard meringue shell, very dry and not at all pleasant. Even the brownie was bad - like something you would buy from your local supermarket. Somewhat less disappointing was the tiramisu. Overall a very expensive, noisy, unappetising dinner. Do yourself a favour, go somewhere else.

    Visited for a Saturday lunch with the family. Ordered the food which was done efficiently, however, the waitress got one of our starters wrong. We also asked for a 10min break between the starters and mains. The mains came almost at the same time. We sent it back. About 30secs later the food came back again. So we felt rushed on what you expect to be a relaxing atmosphere. Ordered wine which took a long time to come. Also had to remind them to get the wine. The waitress was more interested in chatting to her colleague. The actual food was OK but nothing to rave about and is expensive for what you get. The pasta was overcooked but the bolognaise sauce was ok. We also have the squid ink angle hair pasta. The pasta was just plonked on top of the sauce, which should have been mixed through. Will not be going there again in a rush.

    This was my second time visiting Jamie's and the menu had just changed on that day to suit the spring season.

    For entrees we ordered the cripsy prawns, fried gnocchi and arancini balls. All the entrees were delicious, but i especially loved the cripsy prawns which were wrapped in thin pasta and then deep fried.

    For mains we opted for the pork chop and black angel spaghetti. The pork chop was a stand out, being extremely tender and flavoursome. The pasta was a bit of a let down, being too salty and i would of liked a little more scallops.

    As a side, we also had the polenta chips that everyone has been raving about. They were delicious but quite heavy, i found about 2 chips i couldn't fit any more in.

    Overall the bill came to $89 which i thought was fairly reasonable for the amount of food we had order.

    I took my nephew and his girlfriend here last evening. This is a very crowded, slightly cramped and noisy venue (as it is quite clearly intended to be). We waited a little while to be seated.

    We shared our entrees and found them all to be very good indeed, we ordered separate mains and each of us found their choice to be outstanding (lamb chops, lasagna, bone in steak).

    The service was good and friendly. All in all a pretty good restaurant for a casual modern Italian influenced meal; I intend to dine here again.

    Went here tonight and wow what a disappointment. Cocktails were horrible- Watery and flavourless, choice was very limited. has 3 different ones and none were good. They also only have 2 Beers available and 1 cider available to order.

    Entrees took over 45 mins to come out. and were very lack luster and smallest portions Ive ever seen. for $15 for squid and only got about 4 small slivers of squid about 2 cm long and 1 cm wide. Bread bucket was a poor excuse for a entree.

    Mains I ordered the Strip loin and at $32 and wow what a disappointment.
    I ordered to be cooked medium but came well done. Was full of fat and had little to no seasoning. Also came with a side of rocket that was about as big as my thumb. For $32 I expected a little more than a $6 piece of steak and 8 rocket leaves.

    Lucky I didn't order the Salmon as a few people did and were all astounded at the portion size. was about as big as your thumb. Worst thing was plates they they put on our table were all covered in dishwasher crap on under side. I informed waiter and they apologized but for a restaurant of these pricing levels it wasn't enough just to apologise.

    Overall was a terrible atmosphere and was extremely cold with a draft blowing right through restaurant. If you expect anything of good standard keep walking as this place has Jamie Olivers name on the door but that about where it stops.
    I think they outsourced the restaurant to an Indian call centre.

    ? $26.50! Salmon $32 Steak

    Vibe
    Rustic, Industrial layout with a vibrant, casual and cosy atmosphere

    Will impress
    Great for a catch up with the girls – lots of plates to share/nibble on. Will also satisfy a hungry boyfriend who loves his pub food – Plenty of carbs and meat!

    Spend
    $$

    Dress code
    Smart casual, the vibe is really relaxed.

    Love
    Amazing wine selection. Loved: Luccarelli Primitivo Di Puglia IGT, Italy 2012

    Must try dishes
    I went straight for the antipasto and side dishes, pick a few dishes to share: Meat planks, polenta chips, arancini balls and of course the epic brownie. (Also had the special but its no longer on offer – included in images above)

    Love Bangers x

    The service and atmosphere were great but it's a bit claustrophobic in there and the food was rather disappointing and expensive for what it was.

    There are a lot more nicer Italian around Sydney, for sure. Went there for dinner on sunday (mothers day), wasn't busy as we arrived at 5.30pm. We spent 2.5 hour as food takes a while to show up. too slow.

    Fish entree was nice, and so is calamari. tagliatelle bolognese was average at best, pasta itself is good. but overall not enough to make it special. Pork Belly is also average. Tiramisu is pretty standard with an orange twist, worth a try.

    Will I be back? Probably not.. not when there are so many other great italian ristorante around.
