Yesterday I was invited to try out the new Super Lunch menu from Jamie’s Italian. This was my first visit and I was looking forward to a leisurely lunch with my mum and step dad. They are both huge fans of Jamie Oliver, and they have visited the Manchester restaurant a handful of times.  We decided to visit the Liverpool branch which has a central location and is easy to find.

We were booked in at 12pm and we arrived just as the doors were being opened. We had a booth seat which was comfortable and spacious, and had the added bonus of being near to the window.  We were seated downstairs where you get a view of the open kitchen. There is more seating upstairs which I presume is used for busier periods and evenings. And if you visit don’t miss the chef who makes the pasta. He is by the stairs and is fascinating to watch.

The Super Lunch menu certainly lives up to its name. Priced at a very reasonable £10.95 for two courses, and £12.95 for three courses, it is available from 12pm till 6pm from Monday to Friday.  We opted for the Fritto Misto, Pate Bruschetta and the Truffle Tagliatelle to start.  I had the Fritto Misto which was fish and squid served with a garlic and lemon aioli. It was a generous portion and it was absolutely delicious.

For our mains both my step dad and I chose the Italian Steak and Fries. There is a £2 supplement for this dish which is clearly marked on the menu, and also our server mentioned this when we ordered. My mum went for the Gennaro’s Chicken Club which was a towering feast served on a wooden block. The steak was cooked to perfection and simply melted in your mouth. The skinny fries had some kind of seasoning on, and they too were delicious. It was one of those dishes which you kept tasting in your mouth long after you had taken the last bite.

We decided to share a dessert and went for the Orange Blossom Polenta Cake. I have to put my hand up here and say I have no idea what polenta is, but the cake was light and we soon polished it off. We finished our meal with a coffee, and sat and enjoyed the buzzing and vibrant atmosphere of the restaurant. Thank you to our server Kyle who was friendly and attentive during our meal.

Upon leaving we browsed the gifts which were on display in the bar area. They had a good selection including Jamie Oliver’s newest book.

We were invited along to Jamie’s Italian to review the Super Lunch menu. All words and opinions are my own.  Thank you Jamie’s Italian, we will definitely return in the future.

      Yes you should definitely go Mary. The lunchtime menu is such good value, I expected it to be more expensive for the quality of food. Had a really vibrant atmosphere and it was good to dine with the parents x

  5. Where was my invite??!! 😉 I’ve just read about Jamie’s on another blog and it looked amazing, too. I haven’t had chance to visit one yet. My mum’s been to the Liverpool on a couple of times and said it’s lovely. I must go as I cook all his recipes so am sure I’d love it x

      You can come next time Rachel. Oh you would love it in there if you cook his recipes. My step dad is a huge fan of Jamie Oliver, and he loved all of the food. No doubt he will be hunting the recipes down and trying them out now x

  6. So glad you had a lovely time. Wish I was heading there now…

  7. The food looks delicious, but that burger does look a bit difficult to eat! I really must pop into our branch sometime

  8. Oh it all looks so good!! We keep meaning to go and once even made it to the front door but the waiting time was too long. It’s definitely one we need to do this spring I think.

    • Tracey Williams on March 14, 2016 at 5:11 pm said:

      Oh what a shame about the waiting time. I can imagine it gets really busy in the evenings, but it wasn’t too bad in the afternoon x

  9. One of my older daughters & I visited Jamie’s Italian in Bluewater a few months ago in place of our usual favourite of Carluccio’s. The food, when it eventually arrived, was delicious indeed. It’s such a shame we had to wait over 45 minutes for it (apparently their pasta boiler had broken down). Glad your meal went better though!

    • Tracey Williams on March 15, 2016 at 5:54 pm said:

      Oh no 45 minutes is a long time to wait for food. What a shame the pasta boiler had broken when you visited x

  10. Sounds like a really nice lunch out! I love their fritto misto and you know how much I love that polenta cake! Just perfect. I’ll have to go to the Liverpool Jamie’s again soon xx

    • Tracey Williams on March 15, 2016 at 7:59 pm said:

  11. Looks amazing so yummy 🙂 I love all of his books and everything has always turned out great! Yay to a restaurant!! xx

  12. Ooh it does sound so nice. We’ve never made it to a Jaimes. We almost went once in Harrogate but there was a 40 minute waiting time and we had the kids so we had to make do with Wagamamas . One day!
