Jamie's Italian has closed for good in Oxford unless a buyer can be found for the chain.

But there are plenty of other options for fans of Italian cuisine.

We'd love you to tell us your favourite Italian restaurant - and why you like it the most.

It could be the food, the ambience, the friendly chat with the waiter (if you can speak the lingo).

A few other options for lovers of Italian food

In George Street itself, diners can still choose from Bella Pasta, Franco Manca, Zizzi, Pizza Hut and ASK Italian.

But there are other Italian restaurants and pizza places tucked away in the city centre and we want you to tell us your favourite.

Jamie's Italian in George Street was the first in the celebrity chef's chain of restaurants, opening in 2008.

READ AGAIN: Jamie's Italian goes into administration

Earlier this week Jamie Oliver restaurants across the country put up closed signs as the administrators KPMG were called in.

Oxford Mail:

The sudden closures have occurred after last year's company voluntary arrangement was launched in a bid to tackle debts of £60m.

In a statement KPMG said the administrators were seeking buyers for the remaining business and the assets - which includes the leases of those sites which have closed.

Oxford Mail:

The group employs approximately 1,300 staff across 25 restaurants across the UK, including 22 under the Jamie’s Italian brand, in addition to Jamie Oliver’s Diner at Gatwick Airport, Barbecoa and Fifteen London.

KPMG added: "The Group had recently undertaken a process to secure additional investment into the business and, since the beginning of this year, Jamie Oliver has made available additional funds of £4m to support the fundraising.

Oxford Mail:

"However, with no suitable investment forthcoming and in light of the very difficult current trading environment, the directors resolved to appoint administrators."
