Jamie’s Italian will open its first Australian site in the heart of Sydney, 107 Pitt Street, early this spring, bringing Jamie Oliver’s successful blend of delicious, authentic, quality Italian food, great service and good value to one of the world’s food capitals.

The Jamie’s Italian menu will have a variety of pastas, authentic Italian mains and delicious antipasti made with well-sourced, quality, fresh and organic ingredients. Every dish has something to make it different, offering gourmets and fans an unrivalled experience coupled with a rustic, authentic Italian ambience.
“Australia has always been close to my heart since I first visited around a decade ago and I had a brilliant time when I was there last year. I get a lot of wonderful tweets and emails from Australians who have eaten at Jamie’s Italians in the UK so now to have a Jamie’s Italian open in Sydney is really special for me,” said celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver.
“We are proudly bringing Jamie’s Italian to Australia to provide high quality Italian dishes at an affordable price created by Jamie,” said Adam Heathcote, director, Italian Brands Pty Ltd (a subsidiary of Pacific Restaurant Group Limited.

So it’s exciting that Jamie’s Italian is ready to launch in Sydney, which is one of the great cities of the world. Australians love going out and eating delicious food as much as anyone, so I’m sure Jamie’s Italian will appeal. It’s basically fantastic food and service at really good value,” added Simon Blagden, managing director, Jamie’s Italian International.
