Jamie’s Italian, Canberra City

Standard

Jamie’s Italian is one of those places that needs to be tried, just to see what all the excitement is about.
But having said that, it’s hard not to feel the effects of the ‘scripted service ‘ and end up ordering (and eating) too much. So go armed with some strategies. Unless you have a big appetite, three full courses may well be too much.
Sampling across the whole menu may be better in a few visits, or try sharing some of the courses, or under ordering. For example, the planks are great (especially the meat plank) but one serve between two ($14 per serve) with a bread tin ($1.50), may be enough if you are having three courses.

Bread tin $1.50                                           Meat plank for four ($4x$14)

The planks are also much more interesting and better value than the small plates.

Fried Three Cheese Gnocchi $10      Baked Mushrooms   $15.50

If you are planning to have a few courses then an entree sized pasta dish may also be enough.

Tiramisu $11

In the dessert space, everything looked beautiful, but I suspect the best tasting dessert was the trio of icecreams (serve size is small).

No BYO and though caraffs and bottles of wine are available, it’s a similar price to buying by the glass.
