In an ultra-modern cylindrical building, Jamie’s Italian Guildford offers sumptuous delicacies from the world-famous chef. Set over 2 expansive floors, crimson booths and floor-to-ceiling windows make for a bright and lively setting.

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. A unique twist for younger diners at Jamie’s Italian sees them select their award-winning food choices from a viewfinder menu.

Fashionable yet authentic, Jamie’s Guildford is housed under the building’s breathtaking original vaulted ceiling. Guildford Rail Station is 6 minutes’ walk away.

    Really good food. Service was great, very friendly and efficient. Also getting us the table we especially wanted!

    Specials clearly explained prior to ordering, special request re seating to facilitate a physical need adhered to, and sitter checked the table was appropriate. Food always gorgeous, I especially love the olive starter at Jamies. Waiter very friendly but gave space and time. Never a disappointment. Not the cheapest place to eat, hence the value score, but in terms of what you receive , quality and service, it is value for money spent.

    Good service. We both had the specials - my pasta was really claggy and overlooked, which is a shame because normally the pasta is excellent here!

    The service was very very very poor and disappointing, and the waiting staff boy he looked like he didnt want to be there, that we had. He clearly had no idea as he must have been given NO training in how to treat customers at all.
    We were not welcomed by him, as there was no greeting
    He did not ask how our meal was. The pasta dishes needed to be hot, not luck warm
    We had to ask twice for items like spoons for the pasta as he seemed to think we were not going to need them
    We had to ask twice for tap water as he forgot.

    Staff were lovely but unfortunately only 1 young girl was running the whole of the top floor. Consequently service was poor. Had to ask more than once for our wine and food took s long long time to arrive. Don't think we'll be back for an evening meal. Definitely need to employ more staff.

    Very good food we really enjoyed it. The only "hitch" was the long wait for our food to be served! I appreciate that it's better to wait when the food is freshly cooked but I got the feeling that then staff were really under pressure.

    We've eaten at a few Jamie's Italian, but not at the Guildford branch for over a couple of years. This was the first time we were able to book a table (thanks Bookatable), much preferable to waiting in a queue. We arrived on time, and immediately got shown to a table. The restaurant was busy, but not full. Our waiter was good at the start, checking on a drinks order and promptly taking our food order. Then it went a bit wrong. My wife had ordered white wine. It arrived warm. On sending it back, the glass came back with ice cubes in it. Not what I would consider a great solution. Then we waited, and waited, and waited. Our starters didn't arrive for almost an hour. Considering it was a salad and cold meet plate, and the restaurant wasn't full, wasn't impressive. Similarly our mains took about another half hour. My wife's pasta was arguably too al dente, though my pork belly was good. Then to top if off, having decided to avoid another wait on a pudding, we got our bill, and waited, and waited. We could see the wait staff counting the till and doing other chores, but no one could be bothered to take out money. We finally stood up and walked to them. Sadly, really not an impressive outing. This is a restaurant that needs better management, and probably a new head chef.

    The menu had changed and was'nt really varied enough, the food looked liked it had been dumped on the plate and wasn't that well cooked. The place was dusty, mainly on the table lamp. The only thing that was good was the service, so a big thumbs up for that.
