This wasn’t a planned visit, but after an afternoon drinking consuming a few pints of beer my stomach started to rumble and I decided I had to eat somewhere! It was raining like mad and we had just left Beerkeiler as you couldn’t even move in there, so there was no way we wanted to get food there.On the way out of Beerkeiler we passed Jamie’s Italian. I had tried to get in here before but there was always a long wait so I never bothered. This time there were tables free and we got seated straight away upstairs.
While we were deciding on our main courses we got some bread and dips. These were decent and included different types of bread.
This time I ordered a pasta dish, which is something I rarely do when I am out. Pasta only costs a few pence when you buy it from the supermarket and being a meat lover I usually want a massive burger or a steak. Would I be left unhappy at not ordering something meaty?
I went for a spaghetti dish that had squid ink in it – that made it black – with scallops.
I have to be honest and say that this was probably one of the worst dishes I have had in a long time. There just wasn’t much to it! Pretty tasteless. I knew I should have gone for a steak or something like that. Emma tried a bit and pulled a weird face when she tried it. She wasn’t impressed either.
Emma went for the Spaghetti Bolognese. I was hoping she would leave a bit which I could have at the end, but I had no such luck and she ate it all haha. I tried a bit, though, and it was 10 times nicer than my dish.
After finishing our mains we were brought the dessert menu. We were sat right by the part where they made the deserts so I had already seen them go past every 2 minutes. I had to order one.
Overall I would go back to Jamie’s Italian again but not order what I did this time. The service was good and the prices were decent as well.
Have you been to Jamie’s Italian before? What did you think? Leave a comment below and let me know.
