- Cuisines: Italian
NileGuide Expert tip:
There is a no bookings policy for parties of less than 6 so try and go along a bit before you want to eat so that you can get an idea of the waiting time.
- As one of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's string of restaurants, Jamie's Italian has an exciting aura of glamour before you even step in. What you are presented with on entering is a simple, airy layout with bold red chairs, wooden tables and, above all, friendly, welcoming and polite staff. There is no sense of haughtiness or exclusivity that is so often associated with the restaurants of celebrity chefs, Jamie's down to earth character seems to be echoed in the aesthetics of the place.
The menu maintains this sense of earthiness by taking the wonderful rustic simplicity that makes Italian food so fantastic and mingling it with English styles of cooking and food combinations.
With a huge menu and a number of specials that change daily, you will never be short of choice.
Jamie's Italian has raised the bar of quality for restaurants in Oxford and anyone visiting the city should, or rather, has to try it, if only to pop in and sit and contemplate at the bar whilst enjoying some Italian wine or coffee.
