overpriced and poor quality!! jamie should get off tv and back to his restaurants to up their standards!
If possible I wouldn't rate it at all. But it was such an ugly experience that everyone should know and avoid. If you are a food tv addict like me and my wife, Jamie is ( was actually ) that lovely gold hair boy-man, with that cute messy kitchen habits that everything he cooks on his tv shows looked yummy! But when you arrive from Greece, where many Italian food restaurants are as good as in Milano, and you are landed in Soho, and you enter Jamie's Italian... My goodness! What a huge disappointment! At first it has the looks of a dirty old pub and not of a trattoria! The music is also nothing but Italy, loud bad taste pub music, excellent for drunk sports fans playing darts! The menu is ridiculous. We had the caprese salad, synonymous of the Italian salad, for which the Italian association of food industry should make severe complaints. The rib eye was simply not a rib eye, the spinach ricotta karamele, was average but surely not to mention, the merlot was so undrinkable we didn't drink it. The overall experience convinced us that Jamie is not any more the young and promising chef they all loved to hate when he rose like a star twenty years ago, but a tired businessman he just wants to receive the accountant reports about income-expenses etc. Sorry mate but Greek food lovers don't love you anymore!
