Jamie's Italian, Glasgow

Posted on: February 8, 2012     |     0 comments


After arriving into Glasgow’s city centre on a cold Sunday, four hungry lads sat round coffees debating where to eat lunch before descending upon Hampden Park. Ideas were thrown around like confetti, until the biggest and hungriest of the pack made an executive decision.

Jamie’s Italian was the decision. We arrived just after 12 noon, and were shown to our table by extremely attentive team members. The restaurant has a nice relaxed feel with hams hanging by the bar and a chef making fresh pasta at the counter.

With menus in hand and water poured, our waiter ran through the Jamie’s Italian specials of the day explaining any ingredients that we may not have known. Two of our party opted for the pork belly special, rolled in seasoned and herbed bread crumbs and served on new potatoes. The third member at the table went for black angel spaghetti, served with scallops in a fiery sauce. I chose the chicken liver tortellini served with a pancetta and sage. All the food was presented brilliantly and was gone in the blink of an eye (we were all pretty big boys) with fantastic comments from all. Our superb lunch was washed down with a great bottle of Sangiovese and a couple of bottles of Birra Moretti.

We asked for the bill and got a very pleasant surprise when the bill was only £88, after leaving a generous tip for the great service throughout we left Jamie’s Italian contented for Hampden.
