Lunch at Jamie’s Italian

Lunch at Jamie’s Italian

As said in a previous post, we often eat out when we are together, so it’s no surprise we are back with another restaurant review (and there is more coming too…). We we were out all day shopping and it was of those days when we were craving a special type of food, this day it was Italian. After finding out that the first restaurant we wanted to go to was shut, we headed to Jamie’s Italian as Corinne had never been (yes, I know).

Jamie’s Italian Lunch Menue

Jamie’s Italian is in my opinion a good restaurant. The dishes are always good, menues change often and the venues are always beautiful. Somehow I consider this restaurant more on the pricy side, it’s not expensive, but for a student or a young professional on a budget it a little bit more expensive than the usual restaurants we go to.

However, we discovered that they now do a lunch and dinner set menue. For only £12.95 you get a starter and a main course, you can also add £3 for desert (if I remember correctly). You get to choose between a selection of 5 or 6 starters and 5 or 6 mains. So this is what we went for.

Crispy Fish & Mixed Grains Salad

Corinne went for spicy crispy fish with a creamy avocado dip for starters. Which was apparently yummy.

I went for a salad of mixed grains with glazed baby carrots, pomegranate, feta & mint. The dish was supposed to be the main, however I didn’t want to finish my meal with a cold salad as it was cold outside and I wanted to finish my lunch with something warm and with pasta (please don’t judge 😀). So I asked if it was possible to swap both dishes. At first I thought they would simply bring the dishes in a different order, but they actually made the salad a starter (smaller) and the pasta a main (bigger). Which is great! It’s good to know you can swap things over if you want at no extra cost.

The salad was really good, it would have been great as a main on a hot day. I wasn’t too sure about the pomegranate at first but it really went well with the dish.

Creamy Salmon & Truffle Pasta

Corinne chose another fish based dish and went for a salmon in a creamy sauce with pasta.

I went for my all-time favourite and chose the truffle linguine. I’m a huge truffle lover (whether it’s the chocolates or the mushroom). You just can’t beat the stuff. The dish was amazing. At first I was expecting less truffle, but wow look at that topping! I was in heaven haha

When we walked in the restaurant I didn’t know they had a lunch menue, so we were pleasantly surprised, and I think we can’t argue on the fact that 2 fish dishes and a salad + a truffle dish for only £12.95 is a very good price…

Do you like Italian food? What is your favourite Italian dish?

See you soon, love

    I love Italian food so much. I’m a pasta whore. Eat it as often as I possibly can.

  2. November 5, 2017 / 8:14 pm

    Hi, your food looks delicious. I have not been to Jamie’s for a while as I found it to be a bit hit and miss which is a shame as I used to really like it.

    I’ve never tried truffle, my favorite Italian meal is definately carbonara. Looks like a nice place to eat 💕

    I’ve never been to Jamie’s Italian either but after seeing the food I’ll have to go. That truffle linguine looks amazing and it sounds like the perfect comfort food for these colder months xx

    I absolutely love Italian food. Pizza is one of my all-time favourite savoury foods. The dishes you guys chose look incredible! I especially like the look of that salmon and pasta combination! Great post! 🙂

    I love Jamie’s Italian! It’s such an easy place to go for something to eat and that salmon pasta looks amazing!

  7. November 5, 2017 / 8:30 pm

    That truffle pasta looks absolutely incredible, I’m very jealous! I love truffle mushrooms, they really add to a dish, especially pasta! I’ll have to check out Jamie’s Italian as I’ve never been either!

    I’ve always wanted to go here but my bf hates Italian and always says no! But those pastas look so yummy I must go here before the end of the year! I honestly love pasta and Italian food so much xxx

  9. November 5, 2017 / 8:52 pm

    I love Italian food. I’ve never been to Jamie’s at lunchtime but I always had it in my head it was more expensive than this. It all looks amazing. Nice that they’re willing to switch the menu around for you!

    I’ve never been to Jamie’s Italian but it’s always been on my list of places to try! The creamy salmon pasta looks incredible! I didn’t realise they did a cheaper lunch menu, so that’s definitely worth looking into.

  11. November 5, 2017 / 9:24 pm

    This all looks so yummy! I have to confess I’ve never been to Jamie’s either but I’ll have to go now! That grain salad looks so tasty

    I love Italian food and all these dishes look unbelievably delicious. I’m always looking for new restaurants for date nights and I think I may have to suggest this one next time.

  13. November 5, 2017 / 11:29 pm

    I love love love Jamie’s Italian, too many gorgeous past dishes! Mmmm x

  14. November 6, 2017 / 11:54 am

    I love your honest review and Jamie Italian looks like a good restaurant to try. The salad looks amazing!

  15. November 6, 2017 / 1:20 pm

    Oh my that all looks so yummy. I would love to try the salad you had Kirsty. It sounds like such an interesting combination of flavors

  16. November 6, 2017 / 1:49 pm

    Looks like you had a delicious meal. Italian food is so comforting. That salad though, looks like up my alley 😛

    never went to Jaimie’s but damn that food looks good. To be honest I’m biased because I love anything with garlic, olive oil, tomato and oregano 😉

    I am guilty of eating out often too! I love italians food, Jamie’s sounds delicious! Looks like the perfect choice after a long day of shopping!

  19. November 6, 2017 / 5:06 pm

    I’ve never thought about trying out Jamie’s Italian (mainly since the child me still holds a grudge against him getting rid of turky twizzlers) but seeing your photos of the food has now made me hungry. Also since the prices seem very reasonable I think I may go and try it sometime soon. Especially since I loved Italian food!

  20. November 6, 2017 / 5:07 pm

    Pasta lovers will never be judged! I first went to Jamie’s a good year or so ago and I wasn’t impressed then, simply because of the lack of vegetarian/ alcohol free options. But everything you have reviewed here sounds lovely! I might have to give it another go!

    What a reasonable price! I expected it to be much more expensive. I’m a self confessed pasta addict so I’d probably go for that 😂💖

  22. November 6, 2017 / 5:11 pm

    Ooooh all the food looks delicious! I’ve never been to Jamie’s Italian before but after this post I might have to check it out! Great photos!

  23. November 6, 2017 / 5:11 pm

    Italian food is by far my favourite and Jamies Italian is a fab choice for food. I have never been for lunch but these dishes look spectacular, I think the price is more than fair for what you get here too!! Im feeling very peckish now!

    I’ve never eaten at Jamie’s Italian. I do love Italian food, particularly pasta dishes but these dishes aren’t something that would appeal to me. I’m quite simple when it comes to pasta dishes so I don’t know if it would be entirely up my street. However, I would still be tempted to give it a try because I could be surprised.

    I never had truffle before! ooo the food looked so good 🙂 I’ve been really debating about doing posts on restaurants because I didn’t know how to start but you guys inspire me to take the plunge. Great content!

  26. November 6, 2017 / 5:25 pm

    Pefect comfort food for a chilly fall lunch! Love it and glad I am eating lunch as I type this or I’d be so sooooo hangry right now 🙂

  27. November 6, 2017 / 5:26 pm

    Oh dear, your post has made me hungry. The photos you took are really good and I am astonished at the prize, that’s not a lot for so much food. Sounds like a good restaurant and this is a great review 🙂

  28. November 6, 2017 / 5:31 pm

    These dishes look great and for an awesome price! xo

  29. November 6, 2017 / 6:19 pm

    All these meals looks delicious! As someone else mentioned, I really would have assumed that the meals cost a lot more, its so reasonable! I love the sound of the spicy crispy fish, yum!

  30. November 6, 2017 / 7:22 pm

    That salad looks DIVINE!!! Actually pomegranate for me is one of my favourite additives for a salad…crisp and sweet it just livens it all up somehow! Great price for lunch as well!

  31. November 6, 2017 / 7:26 pm

    Is Jamie’s Italian, Jamie Oliver’s restuarant. I love Italian food, what I like more depends on my mood. At the moment I’m loving creamy pizza.

  32. November 6, 2017 / 7:38 pm

    Mmmm, this food does look amazing. I do love my Italian stuff. It’s a good price too!

  33. November 6, 2017 / 9:47 pm

    I haven’t tried Jamie’s yet but I really should as there’s one in Bath. Your post has given me the impetus to book for our next date night, thank you! X

  35. November 6, 2017 / 10:51 pm

    That looks amazing. I’m certain I could eat pasta every single day and never get bored with it. I don’t think I could pick a favorite pasta dish, cover it with a tomato sauce, a cheese sauce, top it with veggies, it’s all wonderful.

  36. November 6, 2017 / 10:54 pm

    I’ve heard some good things about Jamie’s Italian it is definitely a resturant I would love to try for myself one day.

  37. November 7, 2017 / 12:58 am

    This looks so good especially the Crispy Fish & Mixed Grains Salad. I love Italian food and linguine alle vongole is one of my favorite dish.

    Jamie’s Italian seems like a good restaurant. I love the food you took photos of. Yummy!

  41. November 7, 2017 / 4:35 am

    I love Italian food, especially good pasta. I would love to try this restaurant asap. Thanks for sharing.

  42. November 7, 2017 / 5:36 am

    This looks amazing! We love making anything with pasta and Parmesan cheese! I’d visit here for a lunch date.

  43. November 7, 2017 / 5:43 am

    looks good especially the truffles! but my fave italian is a traditional pizza! mama mia!

  44. November 7, 2017 / 6:32 am

    That’s a lot of food for a great price! I LOVE Italian food; I’d eat it all day, every day if I could! 😂 I’ve never tried truffles because I don’t like mushrooms. I love chocolate though!

  45. November 7, 2017 / 12:21 pm

    I love Italian food so much. I am a pasta lova! Oh how i wish i could have a plate right now.

    Looks so yummy! I haven’t been yet but it looks like a good choice and I should try it out 🙂

  48. November 7, 2017 / 2:23 pm

    What fantastic choices, I don’t think I would be able to decide between both of the main course, they both looked so delicious. Even if I’ve never tried truffles.

  49. November 7, 2017 / 3:07 pm

    I do love Italian food. I love pasta and a good Italian wine. I think I’d love to try that truffle linguini. I also adore mushrooms.

    Loved this post, I love Italian food and need to try a Jamie’s they look so good! X

  59. November 7, 2017 / 7:10 pm

  61. November 7, 2017 / 9:40 pm

    I love Jamie’s Italian! Such good value for money and so much to choose from. I adore Italian food (I could easily eat pizza every day for the rest of my life) but pasta and meatballs is a very close second!

  62. November 7, 2017 / 10:04 pm

    Oh we love Jamie’s Italian! I think it’s so reasonable considering it has Jamie’s name to it and the food is always of an excellent standard!

  63. November 7, 2017 / 10:31 pm

    I can’t get over how hungry I am after this post. Italian is my favourite. I need to make a mission to visit the other Jamie Italians across London that I haven’t been to yet!

    Haven’t tried this restaurant yet, but by the looks of it, it sure makes for a great dining experience. Real authentic Italian food is to die for!

  65. November 7, 2017 / 11:42 pm

    This place is something that I’ll enjoy. That creamy truffle linguine pasta is definitely a must try! Thanks for sharing your experience with us! I really love Italian food, it’s tough to pick a favorite!

  66. November 8, 2017 / 12:05 am

    It all looks so yummy. I really like that the restaurant changes menu often as that shows variety!

  67. November 8, 2017 / 12:21 am

    Wow it is great that you were able to get so much food for only 12.95! The pea and feta mint salad sounds rather refreshing and it is great that you can tailor meals as well!

  68. November 8, 2017 / 12:54 am

    This all looks very good. I love authentic Italian food. But I learned since I’ve been traveling to Italy, that what we get here in American has been altered to our tastes.

  69. November 8, 2017 / 1:42 am

    I love Italian food, but don’t think I’ve had half of those meals. Everything looks so delicious! It’s also nice when restaurants will swap things out and customize meals. Sounds like a great experience. I’ll have to look them up when I’m in the area.

  70. November 8, 2017 / 4:24 am

    I love Italian food. I’d really love to try that mixed grains salad .. looks so delish

  71. November 8, 2017 / 8:04 am

    We got a Jamie Italian restaurant out here and have been thinking to bring my family out there for a special dinner.

  72. November 8, 2017 / 8:16 am

    I have to admit, I’m not the biggest Jamie’s Italian fan but the food that you had sounds great so maybe I’ll give it another go.

  73. November 8, 2017 / 9:43 am

    Have been an ardent follower of Jamie’s shows. Loved his rustic recipes. Im sure it reflects here in the menu too. Would dearly love that pasta. Pass the plate already:)

  78. November 8, 2017 / 3:05 pm

    I love Italian food and this looks delicious. It’s been years since I’ve eaten at Jamie’s Italian but I’ve always really enjoyed it when I have. I enjoy pomegranate in salads too, even though it seems like a strange addition!

  79. November 8, 2017 / 5:25 pm

    Oh my…am a huge fan of Italian cuisine. That Creamy Salmon looks so mouth-watery to me right now and I would love to have one (like right now, yes). Now, am checking my phone if there’s like a nearby one in our area. 😀

  82. November 8, 2017 / 10:37 pm

    Oh that food looks so darn amazing. I haven’t had a good Italian meal in a very long time.

  83. November 9, 2017 / 12:03 pm

    I think £13 for a starter and a main is great value, I’d be more than happy to pay that for somewhere as nice as Jamie’s xxx

  85. November 10, 2017 / 3:31 am

    Wow, this looks like a great place! 🙂 I’d love to go. I’m not really one to eat any seafood or fish, but that Creamy Salmon & Truffle Pasta has my mouth watering!

  86. November 10, 2017 / 5:48 pm

    We eat out maybe once every other week, so we are always happy to find places with great food and ambiance. I need to start reviewing all these places! 🙂 Jamie’s Italian sounds great!

  87. November 10, 2017 / 9:12 pm

    I’ve never been to Jamie’s Italian but after reading this post I sure do want to make a visit, as I do love Italian food aswell.

  88. November 11, 2017 / 1:09 am

    when it comes to Italian dishes, i can only think of two … pasta and pizza haha.. I love the pasta the most and those dishes you posted looks really tempting and scrumptious to me.. the mixed grain salad is quite new to me though but looks really good

  89. November 11, 2017 / 7:45 pm

    Yummy! Having lunch at this stunning place seems like a real pleasure, Kirsty! Would you recommend trying the Creamy Salmon and Truffle Pasta?
