With all the expansion happening at Square One, one particularly welcome addition to Mississauga is internationally renowned Chef Jamie Oliver's signature restaurant, Jamie's Italian.
We had lunch there recently, and both the food and service are wonderful, but most impressive is their commitment to serving fresh, sustainable dishes made with the highest quality of ingredients.
Signature food item
Well, as it's an Italian place, the homemade artisan pizza and pasta are the big attractions.
They're made on site daily and we know from first hand experience, they taste delicious!
Three word description
Passionate, enthusiastic and fresh.
200 in the dining room, 40 in the bar/lounge and 36 on the patio.
Type of food
Italian, of course! With Jamie's constant message of eating healthy, fresh food, this isn't just another Italian joint. Here are some examples from their menu:
- Prawn Linguine
- Porcini Fettuccine
- Funghi Misti pizza
- Turkey Milanese
- World's best olives on ice (appetizer)
Jamie’s Italian was founded in Oxford in 2008 by British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. While it'd be really cool if he was in Mississauga all the time, with locations all over the world it's simply not feasible.
However, Jamie did hand pick and create this menu, and seeing as he's been publicly creating great dishes since 1999, we think he knows what he's doing food-wise.
With a strong focus on authenticity, the menu is peppered with fantastic, rustic dishes created using tried and tested recipes.

What can customers expect?
Their website sums this up perfectly:
Jamie’s Italian was designed to be accessible and affordable, a neighbourhood restaurant where everyone is welcome and feels comfortable, no matter what the time of day. Each restaurant is uniquely designed to incorporate the history of the building and personality of the city, as well as creating an environment where the focus is on exceptional food, good company and the relaxed conviviality of the “Italian table.”
Named after the Chef himself!
Type of clientele
Anyone and everyone (kids too, seeing as they have an award-winning kids menu!) who wants to enjoy fresh food, spectacular service and an amazing atmosphere that caters to date nights, family meals and everything in between.
