I'm not sure about gluten free, but they definitely have a couple of vegetarian options! The superfood salad was totally vegan if I remember rightly.

Description
JAMIE'S ITALIAN CAMBRIDGE 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. Based in a beautiful grade II listed building, with a magnificent domed ceiling and pillars that span the whole height of the room, Jamie's Italian Cambridge is the perfect setting to enjoy an Italian feast in style. Situated in the heart of the city centre, the restaurant is ideally located for anything from a casual dinner with friends or a working lunch to an intimate meal or a big celebration.
