There has been so much hype ever since the opening of Jamie’s Italian, I have wanted to check it out but I don’t like queuing up to eat at a restaurant. So I decided the best option was for a late lunch (about 2:30) on a Saturday, thinking the wait for a table might not be as long as mamaks. To my surprise, there was no line and we were seated straight away.
The menu is divided in to sections; breads & nibbles, antipasti, pasta, mains, sides and deserts, with lots of tasty sounding things in each section. Everything is very reasonably priced, which is not something you can say about many restaurants in Sydney.
I enjoyed my meal here good food , reasonably priced and the service was friendly and efficient. If I were in the area looking for something to eat and saw there was no line if would defiantly eat at Jamie’s Italian again.
Crispy Squid $12.00 – Fired bite sized pieces of crispy squid , the dip is a strong garlic mayo .
Bread Selection Complementary – Homemade rosemary focaccia Artisan sourdough, ciabatta & tortano
Pumpkin Ravioli Speciall $14 – My favourite! The sweet pumpkin inside the ravioli combined with the buttery sauce make for a very tasty dish.
Bucatini Carbonara $12 -Just OK I found it a bit bland lacking the creamy taste that I normally associate with a carbonara.
Prawn Linguine $15.50 – The best part of this dish was the prawns, nice big fresh and tasty. Tasty tomato sauce with chilli and garlic topped with some rocket and fennel
Tiramisu $9– On to the deserts and there all $9 so no reason not to have one or two. I’m a big fan of tiramisu and this one did not disappoint. It’s very moist almost watery with a strong coffee taste. The orange mascarpone adds a lot of flavour and together with the chocolate makes for a very nice desert.
Bakewell Tart $9 –
107 Pitt Street – Sydney
