Booked and got the table I wanted and couldn't of asked for a nicer meal or better service. Then to be told that kids ate free during half term was the icing on the cake. Highly recommended for all the family More

We called in on Saturday evening for a pre theatre meal at around 5.20 we we told it would be around 25 minutes for a table, we ordered a couple of drinks while we waited and were seated around 5.50.

I find this chain mostly good but there's the occasional miss. This was an absolute hit. Seared tuna, fantastic super food salad and a young man on service who clearly loved what he was doing. All right on the night ..

My friends and I were so looking forward to eating at Jamie's Italian Covent Garden that we made a reservation a month ago. Jamie is my favourite chef so admittedly I had high expectations. I have to eat gluten-free so the waitress helped me to select "world's best olives", which tasted like butter, so delicious, but there was a little... More

After a long and hard decision about where to celebrate my husbands birthday along with my 5 and 4 year old we decided on Jamie's Italian in Covent Garden. To say we were disappointed is an understatement the food was cold and tasted like ready meals and the service was poor. Having cancelled our happy birthday brownie we decided to... More

First time in a Jamie restaurant and was a bit disappointed. Food was good, not spectacular and service was ok...... after getting our meals no one really followed up to see if we need anything, had to flag down the server to get our bill.

Description
JAMIE'S ITALIAN COVENT GARDEN 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. Jamie's Italian Covent Garden, right in the heart of central London, is perfectly located for the West End's theatre-goers, weekend shoppers, tourists and locals alike. The restaurant is small but perfectly formed, and always buzzing with activity - make sure you stop by and soak up the atmosphere while tucking into some delicious food and a cocktail or two. They open up the outdoor space in the summer too, which is perfect for relaxed lunches and al fresco dinners when the weather's fine.
