INSIDER TIPS

  • Ask to be seated near the open kitchen so that you can build up your appetite seeing the Chefs at work
  • The selection of pizzas is limited to four, but share at least one to understand why they are famous
  • Jamie’s doesn’t have a bar licence yet, but when it gets one, you can pair your meal with either a Fratelli, the restaurant’s exclusive Indian wine partner, or one of the popular Italian wine labels on the menu

Sourish Speaks

23/30

Jamie’s Italian may have a stripped-down industrial look, which is now very much in vogue, but its heart and soul are in the right place. The moment you step into India’s first Jamie’s Italian, you cannot miss the buzz and the conviviality all around you. These are early days and curiosity is at its peak, but I get the feeling that the restaurant will keep clocking numbers — its food is accessible, the seating intimate and informal, the pricing comfortable, and the constant activity in the open kitchen accentuates the sense of anticipation. Jamie Oliver is a great believer in comfort food, and in the supremacy of ingredients, and you can see the philosophy at work in the 120-seater restaurant, where you are encouraged to sit on the benches to partake of a community-style meal. Start with funky chips and arancini (Sicilian rice balls — they brought back memories of my last visit to Sicily), share a misti funghi pizza, choose between Jamie’s sausage pappardelle and our famous prawn linguine, which comes packed with the goodness of San Marzano tomatoes, (or have both) with polenta chips on the side, and make sure you don’t leave without digging the baked cheesecake. You will go back with the feeling of wanting to come back soon.

Amazing food
I have always been fond of Jamie Oliver’s cooking style ever since I watched him on television; he makes cooking look so easy and enjoyable, producing dishes so appealing and delectable. Evidently, I was ecstatic when his famous Italian restaurant chain finally opened its doors in Delhi. A brainchild of the flamboyant chef, Jamie’s Italian boasts of serving high quality Italian food at affordable prices. The menu is straighforward and covers a range of salads, sides, breads, pasta, thin crust pizzas and, desserts. There is also a good collection of wine, spirits, champagne, beer, cocktails, mocktails, coffee and tea. The décor is modern, the seating space is huge and the place is appealing to all age groups alike. As per the chef’s recommendations, we ordered the Artisan Breads, penne in pesto sauce and, Funghi Misti pizza. The breads- focaccia and ciabatta, were soft and freshly baked and, were served with extra virgin olive oil, balsamic and, sun-dried tomato & olive tapenade. The olive tapenade was packed with flavor and went really well with the breads. The pasta in pesto sauce was also nice and creamy. What really stood out for us was the thin crust pizza topped with marinated wild mushrooms, smoked mozzarella, cheddar cheese and rocket leaves and, a delectable layer of mushroom paste underneath. It was heavenly and oddly satisfying- highly recommended for mushroom lovers!! We also tried the Homemade Italian lemonade and citrus cheesecake. The cheesecake was good, but the citrusy flavor was a bit overpowering- I would have liked my cheesecake in a different flavor instead. The lemonade was not really to my liking. I had huge expectations from this place and I’m glad I was not disappointed. The food is tempting, oozing with fresh flavors. The servers are courteous and the fare is not too expensive. It’ll be really nice if they widen their menu and include more vegetarian options. Overall, it was a lovely experience and, I would definitely go back.

Awesome
Such a refreshing change to have really fresh ingredients served on the table.. Maybe I'm a biased Jamie's fan, but the Italian restaurant at vasant kunj did not disappoint.. With lots of amazing fresh cheeses used in the menu, it was a trip down memory lane to Italy.. Must try: the vegetarian grilled platter

Overpriced
Quite overpriced. Small portions. Average taste! I had a pizza which had no taste or character. The ambience is nothing to write home about. And they took WAY TOO MUCH TAX. On a bill of Rs. 2000, we ended up paying Rs. 3000! That's like a 50% tax. This is insane! There are many better places to eat at VK. Don't waste your time and money coming here. This place is way overhyped.

Great Pizzas and pasta
We ordered a chicken pizza which had a great crust, flavourful tomato paste, toppings were less though. The Olio aglio pasta was well flavoured with butter, herbs, garlic, and breadcrumbs. The prawn linguini was delicious too. I love the idea that one can order half-servings for almost half-price. Tiramisu was delicious with a bitter orange flavour coming strongly in it. We also ordered a health food salad and a beetroot-carrot juice, both were bland and boring but that was our mistake to order health food in a Pizzeria !

Good food
Ordered for chicken wings and Pizza, liked the wings as it was spicy and was in a bed of sauce and not dry. <br />Pizza has Good flavours of tomatoes, pickled onion on top gave a different taste all together... However I found the chicken topping was less and the pizza was very dry... Had to ask for extra Virgin olive oil to compete the meal. Brownie was good Taste wise but not served at the right temperature . There were too many wait staff around for this size of restaurant, wasn't clear who should we call for assistance...
