Set within a majestic Grade II-listed building, Jamie’s Italian Cambridge serves sumptuous Italian treats from the industry giant, Jamie Oliver. Obscure bauble light fittings and retro tiling across the bar evoke an on-trend vibe.

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 Cambridge. A unique twist for younger diners sees them select their award-winning food choices from a viewfinder menu.

Within a prime setting in the revamped Guildhall, Jamie’s Italian Cambridge is encircled by the historic colleges of the University of Cambridge.

    I think it is overpriced. The food amount was not enough, and the seating was too close to the other tables so had to talk really loud.

    very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Good quick service but waiter didn't offer help on dishes as on my previous visit. Would recommend though. great value for money also. Love the open kitchen.

    I visited on the 4th March i was very excited due to the nature of visit, we were seated a bit later than expected due to table not ready but not an issue as was able to enjoy the choice of cocktails. The food however was very poor and the starters had to be returned due to not being cooked and due to this we lost confidence in having the same dish returned re cooked or re heated. The Main course was also not what was expected as the ravioli had little taste ans was rubbery and i left half of my dish as the spicy fries and burger were over cooked.
    It was not the most enjpoyable exerience and with a food bill for £65 i was left very unimpressed to say the least,there is so much competition for resturants in Cambridge and having previously told others of my better experiences in Jamies i felt very dissapointed.
    To add further fuel to the fire i attempted to make Jamies italian aware via the email address on social media and saw them ask people to conatct direct with issues i did twice with no response and almost a month later still nothing.
    This really is Customer Service at its worse, i gave them two opportunitys to try and resolve my concerns but seems to be an arrogance of not caring about their customers.
    i would still like to see a resolve on my concerns but i dont hold much hope, im sure the owner would feel suitibly embarasased.

    I love this restaurant. The food is excellent, the choice wide, the building (old library) unusual. My favourite food is planks, which come in meat and vegetable variants. The service is usually perfect. However, on this particular occasion, although I had booked well in advance, we had to wait 20 minutes for our table which was embarrassing as I had several international guests. Nobody apologised. The service was exceptionally slow. I hope it was just bad luck, but I may think twice before I go again.
