Conceived by Jamie Oliver in 2002, Fifteen operates a pioneering apprenticeship scheme for young people, between the ages of 18 and 24, alongside the day to day running of the restaurant.

The Trattoria, on the ground floor, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner where you can enjoy great food in the typical Italian style. The Trattoria is rustic and relaxed and the service friendly, making it a great place to meet friends at any time of the day.

Downstairs at Fifteen, the retro styling and open kitchen combine to make the restaurant a relaxed and friendly environment. The emphasis is on top quality seasonal produce, simply prepared with care and passion to create the best in modern Mediterranean dishes with an Italian influence.

Despite his best intentions, the former Naked Chef’s attempts to transform school dinners weren’t as well received as he hoped, but the empire of this ubiquitous cheeky-chappy-turned-entrepreneur shows no sign of waning. Jamie Oliver now sells cookware and tableware, pasta sauces and herbs, cookery books and barbecues, not to mention taking over the high street with Union Jacks. Just as well his food is great, as evidenced at Fifteen.

These restaurants make an effort

Jamie Oliver’s first restaurant was founded in 2002, funded by his charity the Fifteen Foundation. Each year the restaurant takes on 15 trainees between the ages of 18 and 24 and trains them in all aspects of cooking. The food may be on the pricey side, but the Italian dishes on offer are tasty and innovative, plus the profits are ploughed back into the foundation.

I went to the Dining Room downstairs (slightly more formal dining than Trattoria upstairs) and found it to be faultless. The service was attentive but not over-bearing, the food absolutely delicious (I'm a veggie and so to get unusual, but tasty food in this kind of restaurant is a real novelty!) and the price, whilst expensive, not beyond what you would expect in this kind of place. The only reason why I didn't rate it more highly was because on arrival (despite having booked 2 months in advance) our table wasn't ready and we had to wait in the bar/reception. This area was absolutely packed to the extent that we almost had to stand in front of the front entrance. No apology was made for this and I really do feel, given the very high standards otherwise, this was a little bit disappointing.

This is a good restaurant, i only know the trattoria, in the first floor, is good but not perfect, the staff are very presumptuous, attention is not very good, are very slow, the wine is very expensive and there are only italian wine. The food is good, but the menu is limited. Reservations recommended before you go.
In spanish: Buen restaurante pero un poco caro, los camareros son un poco tontitos, un poco pijos, el más atento es el que parece el encargado, pero es el más pijo de todos, eso si, la comida está bastante buena, pero por el precio que pagas, no lo parece tanto, de todas formas, si tienes antojo, por Jamie Oliver, allí no estará, pero si vas, reserva primero.
Abajo el restaurante parece mejor pero no tuve aun oportunidad de probarlo, de ir otra vez, no volvería a la trattoria, iria al restaurante del sótano, eso si, muy bien vestido, es un local muy "pijo".

Had the Taster Menu for my birthday and it was stunning. Fantastic service, sat next to the kitchen which was really nice. Lovely evening. Would highly recommend. Wine list is very pricey but if you are out to indulge well worth it.
