Jamie’s Italian Brisbane
Located in a stunning 1900s heritage building, Brisbane’s first Jamie’s Italian restaurant and bar accommodates up to 240 guests over two levels. Take a seat at the antipasti bar and watch the chefs prepare antipasti planks and salads under Queensland-inspired leadlight glass features and a custom-made chandelier, or head downstairs to the basement where a more intimate setting awaits. Open seven days for lunch and dinner, the family-friendly venue is brought to you by dynamo chef Jamie Oliver, whose range of cookbooks are also available for purchase at the front of the restaurant. Start with a selection of Italian bread or crispy prawns wrapped in angel hair pasta, before moving on to daily blackboard specials, fresh pasta made on-site daily, or mains such as Australian lamb shoulder cooked with tomatoes, wine and herbs, served on polenta bianca. Bookend your meal with a sweetener like the epic brownie or tiramisu, a cup of Musetti Italian coffee, or soldier on through the local craft beers on tap. Little bellies will be more than satisfied, with an award-winning children’s menu, crayons and badges on hand to keep kids entertained and parents at peace. Bookings are recommended but walk-ins are also welcome.
