River Café has soul and Jamie's Italian continues to win fans

16 October 2008 by

Bloomberg's Richard Vines finds "heart and soul" at the refurbished River Café in London and describes its new look as "beautiful".

Metro's Lucie Wood says you can believe the hype about Jamie's Italian in Bath and finds it "relentlessly charming".

The critic compliments the well-trained staff, the food and the restaurant's "impeccable sourcing" of Italian produce concluding this is one chain that definitely isn't "cheap and nasty".
