Our Visit To Jamie’s New Trattoria

We arrived at Jamie’s last night to enjoy one of their “soft opening” evenings.
The atmosphere was great, candles on the tables, music playing at the right volume – loud enough to hear but not too loud to have to shout at each other across the table.
The staff seemed excited, eager and a little apprehensive at the same time.
Not everything was available on the menu due to it being a soft launch; the specials, fish of the day and a couple of regular dishes.
We had a nice table for four in the front section, sadly away from the open kitchen where all the action was, but it was a good sized table with plenty of elbow room.
Drinks and the antipasti board were promptly brought as we took our time perusing the menu.
Two of us chose the baked chestnut mushrooms, one crispy squid and courgette, and one arancini risotto balls. Good sized portions and very tasty all round. We all had different main courses and we all agreed that they were all very good. Therefore we highly recommend the chicken in mushroom sauce on a crostini, prawn linguini, vegetable rotola, and my favourite the porcini fettuccini!
Only two of us managed dessert with the other two suddenly finding extra spoons to dig in and share as the chocolate arctic roll and sour cherry frangipan tart were too good to miss.
I am a fan of Italian food so I was quite confident that Jamie Oliver would deliver, I was not disappointed. It’s price point is not dissimilar to most of the Italians around town making it another great choice for somewhere to eat in town. We work right opposite which will make it very hard to go home at the end of every day knowing that there’s such a good restaurant just across the road.
Our many hearty congratulations to James and his team, we wish them every success. And we must also mention our charming waiter George who did a great job looking after us four ladies!
Thank you and we will see you again.
