I have now eaten twice in Jamie's Italian on Threadneedle Street. Both visits have been very good, both in terms of food and service.
My first visit was a weekday lunchtime. We were shown to our table on the 1st Floor which has a glass wall that allows a good vision of the dining are and bar below. My friend and I shared a seafood starter which was well presented and tasted excellent when augmented with the garlic dip provided. For mains we both had a dish of seafood and fish. It contained some excellent pieces of fish and was served with a decoration of, what I assume, is potato. We commented that the display looked a little like, that hat from the royal wedding last year. Our bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, which was very sensibly priced, was excellent and as readers of Patricia Cornwell we noted that it came from a wine supplier called Scarpetta.
The second visit was on a Friday evening when the restaurant was buzzing with the usual City Friday evening crowd. We enjoyed, as suggested by our excellent waiter, some bruschetta served with a variety of seafood. One of my friends chose the same fish dish I described above. The lobster ravioli that one friend chose looked excellent and I was informed the taste was equally as good. I enjoyed the veal which was stuffed and topped with a fried egg. It was delicious and very well cooked. All of our empty plates were tangible evidence of how much we had enjoyed our meal. The price was around £40 each and included deserts and coffee, with a soft drink to start. Not the cheapest meal but we all felt it represented good value bearing in mind the location
It was agreed that we shall certainly return.
