So here I am - back in Bristol back and boy have things changed!

In the last few months I have tried to visit all the newest spots around town but boy it's hard! 

Last week I was delighted to receive a invitation from one of my favorite restaurants  Jamie's Italian and best of all they have a new Super Lunch Menu for me to try out.

Mhmm.. What shall I order?
As I have a short lunch break I decided to go for a meal later on in the day as the super lunch menu runs from 12-6 p.m. 

Arriving at Jamie's we were quickly shown to our seats,  the place was not full up yet but it was getting there with work colleagues winding down with cocktails after work and shoppers stopping off for a bite to eat.

Ooh so many cocktails to choose from
Looking over the menu I just didn't know where to start - simply so much choice. 

There are two courses for £11.95 or £13.95 for 3 courses with 5 starters, 5 mains and 4 desserts to choose from. This was going to be hard.

Quick cocktail to help us decide!

Mojito Madness
Right! Decisions made - Frito Misto & Silky Pate Bruschetta for starters and the steak with fries and Nduja Rigatoni for mains.

The starters took no time at all to arrive and looked delicious! 

The portion of Frito Misto contained a mix of squid, white fish delicately fried, bursting with flavour served alongside a tangy garlic & lemon aioli.

Do I really have to share?
The portion size was absolutely perfect big enough for me to taste everything and I also managed to share some with my cousin… well not too much!

My cousin had the Silky Pate Bruschetta made out of chicken livers, with pancetta and parmesan.

It was huge - this could easily have fed 2.  He could not believe the size of it but funnily enough he ate every morsel.

What a whopper!
Whilst we were waiting for the mains we took time out to enjoy a cool glass of Prosecco whilst taking in the ambiance as the restaurant started to fill up.

could of drunk both of these
The Prosecco certainly hit the spot – light and fresh with hints of lemon. It complimented the starters perfectly.

In 2 ticks our mains arrived. My pasta looked and smelt gorgeous but the size of the steak was ginagerous - I was filled with envy only a true steak eater will know.


My cousin immediately cut me off a piece – possibly out of fear as I looked like a crazed women. 

It was gorgeous, cooked to absolute perfection. The garlic butter with parmesan really enhanced the flavor - it also had truffle shavings on top.

Meat! Meat! Meat!
Bellisimo.

I was now ready for my pasta which Lydia (awesome waitress) told me was made fresh on site that morning using on of these bad boys. They even have school classes of kids come in to learn how to make pasta.


Adorable.

Look at these machines!
The Nduja Rigatoni was perfection and any residual envy I had disappeared the minute the rigatoni & the Nduja (spicy spreadable pork salami) sauce hit my lips.

Freshly made perfection
In two shakes of a feather our dishes were clean and we were stuffed.

Damn.. not a morsel left
Room for dessert?

Oh go on then :)

Finally we went for the Epic Chocolate brownie with caramel salted popcorn gelato & popcorn. The brownie lived up to it's name and it was truly epic. I was a little stuffed so Lydia kindly sorted out some ice cream with honeycomb & crushed nuts.

Oh just one more mouthful
WOW! 

What can I say? 

The meal was simply gorgeous. Everything was cooked to perfection, generous portions and the flavors were just right.  We had 3 courses and this was perfect for us as a evening meal but for those of you that like it a little lighter at lunchtime then 2 courses would probably suit you better.
