Jamie's Italian, Bristol

A few weeks ago Lewis and I were invited down to Jamie's Italian in Bristol to have a little taste of their menu. Although I love Jamie's Italian I had never before visited the Italian Restaurant in Bristol so I was excited to check it out and see exactly what the restaurant had to offer.

Jamie's Italian is located on Park Street in Bristol which is a pretty central area and easy to get to (it actually makes the perfect shopping break brunch spot). We arrived around 7pm and were guided upstairs to our table. The restaurant, as a whole, is much bigger than I was expecting. It is far more spacious and open than it looks from the outside and the decor is modern, fresh and funky.

To begin, we ordered a bottle of Corvina Verona which was recommended by our waiter. We then ordered our starters. I ordered the squid and Lewis ordered the spicy meatballs. Both starters arrived promptly and were delicious. My squid was cooked well - it was light and crispy with a tasty kick to it. Lewis's meatballs were succulent and the perfect starter-size, although he did say that they weren't quite spicy enough. A teeny bit more spice and they would have been spot on!

After we had devoured our starters, our mains arrived. I had ordered the crab spaghetti dish and Lewis ordered the carbonara pizza. Now, carbonara is one of my favourite ever dishes so we were super intrigued to see exactly what a carbonara pizza would taste like - and we loved it! It was essentially a pizza with carbonara sauce on top. The pizza was thin, light and crispy and the carbonara sauce did not seem too thick for the light base. The crab spaghetti was also really tasty. They were generous with the portions of crab (something that some restaurants are not generous with!) and the sauce was flavoursome - again, not too thick or heavy. All in all, the mains were a huge hit with us.

Unfortunately neither of us had any space left for dessert (although the options were very inviting).

Overall, we had a great time at Jamie's Italian. The service was great - our waiter was very friendly and helpful, recommending various dishes and wines. Our food arrived quickly and was really tasty - just a little bit more spice in the meatballs would have been perfection! We felt that the menu was well priced and catered to everyone's needs. I would highly recommend visiting a Jamie's Italian near you!
