At Jamie's Italian

11 comments
 I finally made it to Jamie's Italian, the restaurant of famous British Chef, Jamie Oliver, located at Yorkdale Mall, west of Toronto, after my second try. The first time my friends and I planned to eat out here, it got cancelled. The second time, there was a snow storm then finally, with my family, during the Boxing Day week, we made it inside the restaurant. Honestly, I was impressed by the grand scale of the restaurant. As you can see, it is two floors which can accommodate a large number of guests during their lunch and dinner hours. The bar is pretty cool and really a great place to hang out drinking wine, eating pizza or charcuterie. Overall, I was not impressed by the Italian food he served. The nachos I ordered were more like fried ravioli rather than the crispy nachos. Then the carbonara pasta was quite dry with the smoked bacon tasted burnt. As usual, the dessert made the whole difference with the pear and caramel sauce on top of the cheesecake was truly delicious. I could go back here again to perhaps try the other offerings on the menu.

  1. Very sorry to hear about this experience. I tried his restaurant in Covent Garden once and it was really good. I hope that you will have more luck next time!

  2. Seems pretty disappointing! Nachos isnt Italian at all, it made me smile! Yes, the carbonara looks quite dry indeed! Happy weekend Pamela! xo

  3. I hardly ever eat Italian cuisine, pasta is too heavy for me. However, I do love Greek cuisine, and the lamb chops made in Greek restaurants are the best I ever had! I am so sorry to hear about the experience you had, Pamela.
