As it is currently exam season for us college students here in Sydney, I happened to finish late one night and was craving pizza. Not really wanting to go home and order Pizza Hut, I decided to try out a restaurant that’s been on my list: Jamie Oliver’s ‘Jamie’s italian’.
Shortly after arriving, I realized they didn’t have pizza…kind of a disappointment but hey, they had summer TRUFFLE RISOTTO!! Yes please!
The risotto was cheesy, creamy, and delicious. It had just enough creaminess to not make me sick (I usually can’t finish a carbonara myself…too much cream…). The truffles helped cut the creaminess of the dish and the only fault I could find was it needed more truffle!! 😝
We also got the chicken al mattone. I loved the zestyness of this dish, and is definitely something that I would highly recommend. Especially for those on diets 😏
Oh yea, we also got the house bread because we were STARVING by the time we got there, but it was kind of a disappointment and I wouldn’t recommend wasting $3.5 on stale, dry bread. My flat bread was even kinda burnt…but hey, at least it made it more aromatic..? 😆
For dessert, we got the dark chocolate cheesecake. If you know me personally, I LOVE chocolate and cheesecake. So, what could go wrong? Right? Well…this dessert was just too rich for me. It might suit some people, but if you have a sweet tooth, I wouldn’t recommend this dessert.
All in all, my experience at Jamie’s Italian was wonderful. The food was above average, and the service was amazing. But next time I’m craving pizza, I’ll know where not to go 😝
