The 6,251 sq ft restaurant, which is expected to open in June, will be situated opposite John Lewis in Paradise Place and trade on the ground floor with a mezzanine.
Simon Blagden, managing director of Jamie's Italian, described the 1.65 million sq ft shopping centre as the perfect location for a Jamie's Italian, adding: "Nowhere is more appropriate for our concept of creating ‘neighbourhood' restaurants."
Jamie Oliver said: "When people eat at a ‘Jamie's Italian', I want them to really get into the food, maybe try something they wouldn't normally try, but always be safe in the knowledge that they're eating good stuff, prepared with love."
