It's been a while since I've wanted to try this restaurant. I love Jamie O. Initially the lines were absolutely long but since it's been open for a while it's eased up. My friend and I went for a really late lunch and we were starving.
I absolutely like the feel of the place. It's a bit narrow but it feels like you're in the streets of Italy. Posh streets. I haven't actually been but that's definitely what I envision it to be.
|Meat Plank- $13.50/person|
Famous planks that Jamie is popular for. I've got a thing for cured meats. Too good. I'd always have it in my sandwich if I only could. Peppers and olives are some of my other favorite things too! And that crunchy shred salad was awesome sauce, so fresh and minty!

|Truffle Tagliatelle- $14.50|
Finely shaved wild black truffles tossed with butter, parmesan, and nutmeg.
Truffle tagliatelle, Oh yes. Silky al dente pasta and a rich truffle sauce. It was soooo buttery and just as equally tasty. Yes, I did wish that I had bread to mop up all that goodness.
|Jamie's Italian Burger- $19.50|
Wagga Wagga beef with Fontina, pancetta, lettuce,
salsa, dill pickels, and fried onions
Apparently this burger is supposed to be great- that's from one of the food blogs that I read. Sad to say though, it didn't hit the spot. The patty wasn't all hot and juicy when it got to the table. Flavour-wise though, it had some toppings that I like namely pickles and fried onions.
|Italian Ice-Cream Bombe- $8.50|
Panettone, vin santo, ricotta, and ice cream with chocolate sauce.
This was what we had for dessert. It's surely not as amazing as I actually expected it. The panettone was pretty plain when I imagined it to have all these candied fruit. The ice cream they spiked up with some nuts which was awesome.
