Jamie's Italian is as busy as it's food is beautiful.
I don't know if its Mr Oliver's aesthetic I agree with or the way he prepares his food (of course not in person in this case) but I adore Jamie's Italian.
I have been a few times so I decided to invite the girls for a little dinner.
Or a big dinner...
The thing to remember is to arrive an hour before you want to eat. Yes an hour.
They have a long waiting list unless you want to book for over 6 people.
Saying that though I really don't mind enjoying a few cocktails in the pasta adorned bar downstairs under the epic chandelier.
Nothing wrong with that at all.
May I add the cocktails are yummy.
I got severe book having envy seeing the Jamie book shelf. Sad to say I only have a few. Collecting time is in order.
The restaurant has a beautiful and dark aesthetic.
Which in my eye makes it cozy yet modern, which I love more than I can express.
Nothing ruins my mood more than a really light and medical restaurant.
We were lead upstairs once our beeper rang and straight to our table.
Steph was straight onto the menu.
What a great graffiti wall, right?
Lyndl wasn't too far behind.
Natalie was camera shy.
Steph and I never are!
As I said the food in this place is incredible and not over done like places tend to be.
Bolognese heaped in a gorgeous little pile.
Ravioli lounging on it's long plate.
An amazingly crispy skinned chicken with a rocket side salad.
And the absolutely stunning beef fillet with bean mash and fried cheeses.
A sexy salmon.
Natalie's peppery risotto balls.
A must visit for sure!
