Jamie’s Italian was founded by Jamie Oliver and his Italian mentor, Chef Gennaro Contaldo, in Oxford in 2008. Since then, the concept has grown to more than 60 restaurants around the world, with plans for even more restaurants in cities and countries all over the world.

Jamie’s Italian is inspired by Italy and the country’s many tradition and values. In Jamie’s own words:

“Since I was a teenager I’ve been totally besotted by the love, passion and verve for food, family and life itself that just about all Italian people have, no matter where they’re from or how rich or poor they might be. And that’s what I’m passionate about good food for everyone, no matter what… But the thing I love most about the Italians is that somehow, although they have some of the best fashion designers and cars in the world, they’ve managed to retain a unique sense of tradition and village spirit.”
