Jamie’s Italian was founded by Jamie Oliver and his Italian mentor, chef Gennaro Contaldo, in Oxford, 2008. Their menu is rooted in authenticity, driven by what you’d find people eating all over Italy. Taking inspiration from the “Italian table” – where people relax, share and enjoy each other’s company – their menu is packed full of antipasti and nibbles, perfect for sharing, as well as comforting bowls of pasta, beautiful fresh salads and grills.
They work hard to find the very best ingredients for all of their dishes. Everything is meticulously sourced from producers – both in Italy and around the UK – who share their ethos and take enormous pride in what they do. All their ingredients are responsibly sourced – whether it’s their eggs, milk or fish, their pasta is made on‐site from scratch every day and their meat is always free‐range and higher welfare.
Jamie’s Italian was designed to be accessible and affordable, a neighbourhood restaurant where everyone is welcome and feels comfortable, no matter the time of day.
