Perched between the trendy Lanes and the iconic seafront, Jamie’s Italian Brighton serves rustic Italian delicacies from world-famous chef Jamie Oliver. A fashionable rooftop terrace offers relaxed al fresco dining.

Launched in partnership with Jamie’s Italian mentor, Gennaro Contaldo, the menu at Jamie's Italian showcases dishes made with responsibly sourced, high-welfare and sustainable ingredients. Tuck into food you’d find people eating all over Italy, including pasta that's hand made on-site every morning, sumptuous antipasti planks loaded with delicious ingredients, and fresh meat and fish dishes.

From the bar you can order from a selection of easy-drinking wines, served alongside ‘Jamie’s choice’ vintages, whilst the Florence Fizz heads a vibrant cocktail selection at Jamie's Italian in Brighton. A unique twist for younger diners sees them select their award-winning food choices from a viewfinder menu.

Fashionable yet authentic, Jamie’s Italian Brighton offers daily specials cooked in the wood burning oven. The Theatre Royal Brighton is 4 minutes’ walk away.

    Yes, everything was very satisfactory. Good food and excellent service. I have been to Jamie's in Norwich several times but never tried your Brighton branch. I shall certainly go again.

    Nicest Italian food I've tasted outside Italy.

    Food was delicious and staff was very kind to me. I could not decide between two types of dessert, so a waiter decided to just give me a bit of both. Turned out he gave me the whole thing of both. Very kind of him.

    We spent our weekend in Brighton because I ran the marathon and I wanted to eat a nice dinner. We've been once before Jamie's restaurant in London and it was really good.
    This time I wanted to eat pasta before the race with nice starter and of courae wirh dessert. It was the best choice to go to Jamie's .

    Excellent meal. Great staff

    Overall I was disappointed with the experience. I booked the table for 7pm for a special occasion but when we arrived we had to wait 10mins to be seated.
    The staff were friendly and professional.
    Food was average. I had the Italian burger which fries. Again nothing special versus the cost. My wives ordered steak and fries. Steak was nice however many fries were hard and uneatable.
    For the price that we paid I would have expected better. The customer is paying for the "Jamie's " brand but the quality of the food doesn't match.

    Booked in advance for a 2 night Birthday Stay in Brighton. The welcome greeting from the young European Lady on FOH was great. I'd been sent the Jamie's Gold Card App earlier that afternoon and downloaded it qualifying for a £10 offer plus free olives.
    Ambience was lovely. Food great.
    Service from our server - possibly the only English lady serving - was indifferent, condescending and spoilt the evening.
    Perhaps it was she disapproved of our claiming the Olives and the £10 off? We felt she clearly looked down on us and spent far more attention on a neighbouring table.
    We had ordered the Olives as an aperitif and then starters and two mains.
    We ordered the litre of Jamie's House White. A bottle of Prosecco turned up brought by someone else.
    When they had not arrived we queried the Olives (which are served cold and only need to be decanted by someone presumably?) and were rudely told by the server (in a restaurant which was approx half full) that Chef was very busy.
    As I had anticipated the cooked starters then turned up before the Olives!
    The main course was very good.
    Another server - a charming young lady from a the EU - brought our main course and also, after our original server had brought the bill, took our payment. We did not leave a tip.
    The whole server experience confirmed fears that in the post Brexit era in the service sector polite European staff from southern European countries or from the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia etc may lose their jobs or be deterred from working here to be replaced by surly Brits who presumably feel the job is beneath them and provide inferior service.
    Please feel free to forward my comments to Jamie Oliver (a fellow Essex man) whose standards are, I know, better than this.
