With authentic Italian mains and delicious antipasti, Jamie Oliver’s highly acclaimed Jamie’s Italian restaurant is scheduled to open its doors at 107 Pitt Street in October.  Promising fantastic dishes made with well-sourced, quality fresh and organic ingredients, Jamie Oliver devotees will not be disappointed.

peckvonhartel was appointed to convert the unusually narrow site into a fully functioning, multi level restaurant to cater for up to 200 guests.

The design borrows uniquely rustic elements of old Italy and blends them with Sydney’s rich and colourful diversity. With a palette of vibrant hues, the ‘laneway’ inspired setting features a pasta preparation window where onlookers will see a pasta machine churning out fresh pasta daily, and a vibrant antipasti and dessert counter.

Simon Blagden, managing director of Jamie’s Italian International says: “Australia is a country that Jamie’s been visiting for 10 years and he’s always been welcomed warmly. 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.”
