I went here with a few friends quite a few years ago. I thought the location was good, and the food wasn't too bad either.

Nice decor and friendly staff made our party of 10 feel welcome. Sadly the food was nothing special. Several of our group thought that their portions were distinctly on the small side. This wasn't compensated, either, by being super-tasty. Have had MUCH better Italian meals...More

The food is good but over priced. It is no better than similar restaurants but charges for the name and he's not cooking your meal

Question seems a little abrasive - see my other reviews. Praise given by me far outweighs negative comments. I have not, nor will go back. 3 of the 4 of us had a good meal but it was the obvious and complete lack of... More

Description
JAMIE'S ITALIAN BRIGHTON A partnership between Jamie Oliver and his Italian mentor, chef Gennaro Contaldo, Jamie's Italian has won thousands of fans for its delicious and affordable food since launching their first restaurant in Oxford in May 2008. The Jamie's Italian menu is based on dishes you'd find people eating all over Italy, made with care but delivered without fuss. The family-friendly restaurants are all about serving up rustic, Italian food made using the best possible ingredients, plus fresh pasta that's made on-site every day, and an award-winning children's menu, too. The lovely Brighton restaurant is located on Black Lion Street, a stone's throw from the seafront, nestled within Brighton's famous Lanes. The rooftop terrace is a great spot to enjoy a drink and a bowl of our freshly made pasta or a burger after a trip to the beach, or relax in one of the cosy booths and watch the chefs at work in their beautiful open kitchen. There's something for everyone here, whatever the occasion - a quick bite with friends or a big family dinner - come in and soak up the atmosphere while you tuck into some delicious Italian food.
