Jamie’s Italian…Please sir can we have some more!

We visited this restaurant after deciding to make a girly evening of it! You certainly couldn’t miss Jamie’s as it towers over the riverside like a beacon, with a huge sign and floating balcony. Inside we were pleasantly surprised by the setting, tucked away inside, the seating reminded us of being abroad. Unfortunately it was a rather cold evening and so we opted to sit inside.

Our waitress was lovely, very enthusiastic and obviously knew the menu very well as she quoted the day’s specials to us. She took our drinks orders while we browsed the menu, Shauna had a coke while I ordered a non-alcoholic ginger mojito, and promptly brought them over to us. We were surprised at how reasonable the prices were and ordered our main courses and sides.

We were not kept waiting long and the food was delicious. We both opted for the Sausage Pappardelle; Slow-braised fennel sausage ragù with Torrione red wine, Parmesan & crunchy, herby breadcrumbs…It was amazing! You could tell that the pasta had been made fresh that day and all of the flavours complimented each other wonderfully. We also had some polenta chips, crispy fried with rosemary salt & Parmesan on the side.

After our main course we ordered a dessert each… My friend opted for a trio of ice cream; vanilla, chocolate and salted caramel all dusted with crushed nuts. I chose a warm fudgy brownie with amaretto ice cream & caramelised amaretti popcorn. Both of these were exquisite and left us feeling suitable full up.

As the restaurant got busier we were slightly over looked after requesting the bill but overall our experience at this restaurant was positive and the food was certainly good value for the money, we will definitely visit again.
