Jamie’s Italian

 

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

Macchiato $4.35 

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 –

    The tiramisu looks amazing. I’ve read alot of mixed things about Jamie’s Italian.
    If there was no line, I’d give it a go too. The pumpkin raviolli sounds like a real winner too!

      The tiramisu and the ravioli were my favs. Its worth a try if there is no line , its good but not something I would line up for.

    Love carbonara so it’s a shame it’s not as creamy as expected. The spag bol I had was average but brightened by the crunchy breadcrumbs.

      I love carbonara too, but this one was a total let down….

    I looooove tiramisu. I think lining up here just to try that would be worth it.. that is if it lives up the expectation 😉
