When Jamie's Italian was first conceived, the starting point was to re-create what Italians are most proud of - fantastic, rustic dishes, using recipes that have been tried, tested and loved! Jamie talks about "feeling Italian" and in Gennaro Contaldo, we can tap into real thing. A great mentor for our young chefs and someone who, as a boy growing up in a tiny fishing village on the Amalfi coast, learned how simple, fresh ingredients, prepared and cooked with love and passion (a phrase he uses every day - and means!) become truly great dishes.
So of course we wanted to serve exceptional food. But our aim was also to create an environment with a "neighbourhood" feel, inspired by the "Italian table" where people relax, share, and enjoy each other's company. Jamie's Italian was designed to be accessible and affordable, a place where anyone is welcome and everyone will feel comfortable, no matter how much you spend or how long you stay.

An oasis amongst all the hustle and bustle of Westfield Stratford! The restaurant is wonderful - get a table by the window or alfresco to do a bit of people watching in the Four Dials square in front of the restaurant.
Food was great - Jamie's Italian standard, never disappoints. Service was friendly and efficient too, despite it being a full house on a Saturday.
Definitely try the porchetta...more

The wine list was pretty pricey and then we spotted the...more
Seriously, never got so much attitude from the staff at this place. Furthermore my pasta was cold when it arrived. I guess the place is new but they need to get their act together.more
Jamie's Italians are nice restaurants serving traditional italian dishes. This one is not as nice (imho) as the one in Covent Garden but the service was excellent.
I recommend the "Meat plank" as a starter: it includes cold cuts and Italian cheeses. The mozzarella is the best I have ever tasted.more
