Celebrating summer at Jamie’s Italian
We work with the seasons at Jamie’s Italian – changing our menu at least twice a year – to bring you the best Italian-inspired dishes, made with incredible fresh ingredients. This summer, Jamie and the team have come up with some real showstoppers that conjure the flavours of al fresco dining in Italy.
Our new dishes include Jamie’s burrata – a ball of oozy mozzarella from Campania, served with fresh tomatoes, basil & extra virgin olive oil; and Primavera ravioli – buffalo ricotta & black pepper pasta parcels in a lemony butter sauce with peas, mint & pea shoots. Plus Gennaro’s mixed grill is already a firm favourite with the team – with higher-welfare meat and smoky chilli ketchup, it’s a meat-lover’s dream.
For desserts, we’re working with artisan gelato producer Snowflake to produce an incredible selection of gelatos and sorbets, made with 100% natural ingredients. Each gelato on the menu is made with organic Jersey milk and cream from Somerset, and the sorbets are handmade with seasonal, fresh fruit. Even better, we’ve been working towards Public Health England’s sugar reduction targets and have reduced the sugar content in our most popular desserts by an average of 35% so they’re a little bit less naughty, too
On the drinks front, we’ve switched up our cocktails to introduce some really beautiful summer tipples – the Cascade with Bacardi Carta Blanca rum, passion fruit & raspberry purée, fresh apple & orange juice & a squeeze of fresh lime is as refreshing as it gets.
We love to hear your feedback, and we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to identify which of our wines are vegetarian and vegan friendly so you can enjoy a glass happy in the knowledge that what you’re drinking is all good stuff. All you have to do is check our menu online or ask your server for more information when you come in. Plus, in selected sites throughout the country, we’re offering a super-special sparkling wine. Contadi Castaldi Franciacorta is said to rival Champagne in Italy and you’ll find it on our blackboards from May until the end of July. Give it a try instead of Prosecco – you won’t regret it.
Al fresco eating
To enjoy our new summer menu in the sunshine, search out one of our favourite al fresco spots. Our terraces are perfect for some outdoor dining as the weather heats up.
Our Bath restaurant is one of our first, and did you know it’s got a suntrap terrace hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the city? With plenty of tables up for grabs, the sun comes around just in time for lunch. What better place to enjoy our Super Lunch menu or some afternoon drinks and nibbles with friends.
Our balcony in Birmingham is ideal for soaking up some sun and a little bit of peace and quiet away from the shopping centre. Put your feet up mid shopping and enjoy a glass of Prosecco and a salad, or end the day with a pizza and beer. Cheers!
Our beautiful walled terrace in Harrogate is designed to be a relaxing space away from the crowds where you can linger for an afternoon with food, drink and good friends. Find a space in the shade or sit right in the middle to make the most of the sunshine while it’s here!
Watch the world go by while you tuck into a bowl of pasta and a cocktail. Catch the sun in the afternoon and if you’re lucky, get a glimpse of the Tower of London or The Shard in the opposite direction.
Set in the heart of London, our flagship restaurant is spread over three floors of an old pub. Our Piccadilly restaurant is also home to, what’s probably, our biggest secret space. Hidden from view, nestled in amongst Piccadilly’s skyline is our rooftop terrace – decked out with a cabana and festoon lighting so you can stay as the sun goes down.
Without a doubt, Jamie’s Italian Nottingham is our most quirky restaurant. More of a grand old house than a restaurant, it makes sense that there’s even a back garden. With plenty of parasols to shelter from the midday sun, enjoy long lunches and al fresco dinners in the height of summer.
