I visited Jamie's at Covent Garden with a party of work colleagues. The Friday lunchtime slot was very busy but gave the place a nice buzz. The service was not negatively impacted by this and all of the staff that we encountered were helpful and attentive. We'd pre-ordered our food and our mixed 'plank' starter arrived promptly, elevated by 4... More

Been here many times over the years and the food is always delicious. Perfect for a comforting meal after shopping or a nice pre show dinner. Warning: cannot book a table so be prepared to wait for a table and busy times!

Having been disappointed in the past when going to the work Xmas do, I was really looking forward to an evening of good food - I knew the company was good. How wrong I was, the starter came with no bread despite the menu saying it was served with homemade rosemary focaccia. On to the main course for which I... More

If you are in a hurry then you need too be at the door at 1200 when it opens,it's very popular and the queue was quite long. We waited for a couple of minutes before a table was available and that was at 1220. Service was good, staff helpful and friendly. the food was tasty and filling, Good choice

Stopped here for a early dinner after shopping around Covent Garden. Didn't have to wait or book and was seated straight away which was great. The burger we both had was so tasty and how a burger should taste. The chocolate pudding I had was to die for so tasty and well worth having. Only negative was that we were... More

Came here as a couple, shared the garlic bread to start - small loaf with garlic butter. Tasty but small. I ordered the prawn linguine which was absolutely delicious. Other half had Italian steak which was very tasty but he was not asked how he would like it done - came out well done. Sides are what stopped it from... More

We've never visited a Jamie restaurant before & thought it might trade on his name a bit but we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We ate early as we were going to the theatre but everything was good - food, wine & service. Pleasurably impressed!

Had a great lunch with tasty food from set seasonal menu (varied starters, and choice of 4 mains and 4 desserts), plus glass of prosecco, all for £28. Service good in busy restaurant, and little to fault with delicious, plentiful and varied courses. Enjoyed by all!

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.
