Jamie’s Italian is somewhere I have been wanting to try for the longest time but have never got around to. So when an email asking if I would like to try the new Super Lunch menu at the Leeds branch dropped in my inbox, naturally I said yes immediately! The Jamie’s Italian Super Lunch menu runs Monday – Friday 12-6. You can have two courses for £11.95 or three courses for £13.95.
The inside of Jamie’s Italian is just gorgeous! Thick chunky wood tables, wooden floors and stripped ceilings.
Jamie’s Italian Super Lunch starters
From the Super Lunch menu this is the Truffle Tagliatelle. This is handmade pasta served in a black truffle butter with aged Parmesan, nutmeg and shaved black truffle. It is without a doubt THE nicest food I have ever eaten. The pasta is lovely, you can really taste it is freshly made. I thought for a starter there was the perfect amount too. There is enough that you feel you’ve had a course but not so much you worry about finishing the rest of your meal. It was my first time trying truffles and they are amazing. Im just sad I can’t have truffles on every meal from now on!
For Ellie, the ultimate garlic bread from the antipasti section of the normal menu. This almost looks too good to eat, I just love the rustic board it comes on. Again it is the perfect portion size for a starter course. As well as looking good it tastes and smells good too.
Jamie’s Italian Super Lunch mains
This is the Steak and Fries from the Jamie’s Italian Super Lunch menu. A marinated skirt steak, flash grilled & served with garlic butter, aged Parmesan, slaw & fries. The steak is done perfectly, to just how you order. The marinate is tasty and I love the garlic butter. The chips are super thin and crispy which is just how I like them and the slaw tastes great too. Again I thought this was a really good size portion too.
I had to try the polenta chips from the contorni main menu too as I’ve heard so many people talk about them! I love polenta but have only had it in baking or mash potato style. The polenta chips are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. I love the herby cheesy topping too. I will definitely be trying to recreate these at home soon.
Ellie has the margherita pizza from the Jamie’s Italian kids menu (fussy teenage eating day!) This is a sourdough base with Jamie’s organic seven-veg sauce, mozzarella and fresh basil. The sourdough base is thin and crisp, the sauce really tasty and a good, thick layer of oozy mozzarella. It is the perfect size, even for a growing teenager.
Jamie’s Italian super lunch – the desserts
Finally the Jamie’s Italian Super Lunch epic chocolate brownie. A chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce, salted caramel popcorn gelato and caramel popcorn. This is pretty much dessert heaven on a plate! The brownie is perfect, the gelato tastes amazing and the popcorn pieces add a really tasty touch. As I was so full I did ask for a smaller portion, so this is half the size of the usual portion.
And from the kids menu again an organic strawberry and mango ice lolly. This is made from real fruit so has “bits” in and is surprisingly filling. Ellie loved it though and it was a great end to her meal.
Jamie’s Italian Super Lunch review
Both Ellie and I loved our meals at Jamie’s Italian. The Super Lunch menu has lots of great dishes to choose from all for a great price. As Jamie’s Italian Super Lunch runs from 12-6 it is great for lunch or an early dinner too.
The Leeds branch is a gorgeous venue and all the staff are lovely. They really know the menu and they are attentive without interfering whilst you are eating.
We can’t wait to visit again and try some different things from the menu.
