Jamie's Italian

A couple weeks ago we took the kids to Yorkdale for lunch at Jamie's Italian.
Louis and I are huge Jamie Oliver fans and have been dying to try this restaurant.
We have a couple of his cook books & make regular trips to Sobey's just to buy his products.
Upon arriving, we were instantly wowed by the atmosphere and design.
Lots of rustic wood and subway tiles had me dreaming up all kinds of future renos for our home.




We decided to order a couple of appetisers and a pizza to share amongst the five of us.
We ordered the Crunchy Italian Nachos, Spicy Meatball Bruschetta and the Patate Pizza topped with marscapone cheese, balsamic onions, bacon, rosemary and thinly sliced potatoes.



I had read some pretty bad reviews before trying this restaurant myself, but I'm glad I didn't listen. They seated us in a small room upstairs that was next to a rustic looking kitchenette complete with white subway tile, dark grey grout and barn wood that made us feel like we were back in Italy eating dinner in Nona's kitchen.
The food was simple and rustic with just the right amount of flavour.
Not too overwhelming, but just enough.
My only complaint would be that the nachos could have used a bit more cheese as I could barely taste it, but we still really enjoyed them.
We will definitely be coming back for a date night in the near future.
