Jamie's Italian

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!
