Lunch at Jamie’s Italian with Bron and Max

On Saturday Bron suggested lunch at Jamie’s Italian in the Canberra Centre. Max, Bron’s son also came along. Earlier in the day Max had suggested he would capture a photograph of his dish so that I could blog about it.

We’ve been to Jamie’s Italian before but in the evening. It was good then and we were expecting a similarly good experience.

On arriving we were greeted with a friendly smile from our waiter who stayed with us throughout the meal. Kids get treated specially at Jamie’s Italian. They receive a mug with crayons, a piece of paper with a line drawing for colouring and a 3D view finder which contains images of the kids’ menu. The good thing about the kids menu is that it isn’t chicken nuggets and chips or similar food you find in other restaurants. There were lots of families there with kids eating good looking meals. It’s good to see kids are considered as well as the adults are.

Bron captured a photograph of an interesting lighting feature in the middle of the restaurant.

Max chose the hotdogs and chips. He went ahead and captured an image of his meal with his iPad. Maybe Max will one day have his own food blog.

Max was pretty happy with his meal.

Bron decided on the Black Angel Spaghetti with the squid ink pasta, scallops and anchovies. She also got a fennel and orange salad.

I went for the strip steak cooked rare.

350 g pasture-fed Aussie Black Angus bone-in strip loin served with wild mushrooms and peppery endives with summer truffle butter and shaved Tuscan black truffles

The steak was cooked perfectly and just to my liking. The truffle butter with shaved summer truffles was divine.

For dessert Max chose the chocolate brownie with amaretto ice cream and popcorn. Bron also had a bit of the dessert and mentioned a few times how good the chocolate was. Sorry I didn’t capture an image.

The restaurant was quite busy and the turnover of customers was high. The restaurant is well staffed and the customer flow goes well. We’d happily recommend Jamie’s Italian to anyone wanting a good quality meal for a reasonable price.

  1. I’m hearing mixed reports about Jamie’s, mostly that the dishes taste really different than the last time they ate the same meal. Guess that’s just different chefs cooking the meals. Yet to check it out myself, will have to get on fixing that stat. :)
