Jamie’s Italian – Toronto 

On the weekend, I went to Jamie’s Italian for lunch with my sister. I had been wanting to try this place since it opened because I am a big fan of Jamie Oliver and figure this restaurant would be amazing. 
When we walked in everything was super clean and the layout was cool. The restaurant is fairly large and had many different parts to it. Where we were seated was close to the lady making the house made pasta. This was brand new machinery and looked nothing like the one my nonna uses to make her pasta. Whoever designed the restaurant did an excellent job, everything looked great. 
My sister and I decided to order the fried calamari to share…. Which honestly tasted like something I could have gotten at East Side Marios. Nothing special, deffinatley not what I expected from a Jamie Oliver Restaurant. 

We also each ordered our own pasta. We both got the rigatoni with buffalo mozzarella and breadcrumbs. This was mediocre. I wanted to play it safe for my pasta option, so I just got something very basic. But that being said, I could have made it at home for myself that’s how basic it was … Aside from the homemade pasta itself. 

Maybe my expectations were too high but I have been watching Jamie Oliver since I was a little girl on Tv….. And that was pretty disappointing as for flavour.
