“Awful food and coffee bitter and cheap”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Why does this place get positive reviews????? They need to pull their socks up big time. Ordered gnocci and vegetables. Stodgy mess. Gnocci was warm not hot. Got diarrhoea from the food later in the evening. Coffee was foul. Service slow. Toilets are dirty, stinky and yuck. This place needs a shake up. They need to serve fresher food and hot food. Eat elsewhere you have been warned!

“Fun place, great hosts, good food....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Jimmy's is a great place in McLeod, where the smile of the owner and of the other guys working there is inviting. The restaurant is cosy and very comfortable, beautiful movie posters and atmosphere with good music and right lighting. Lots of young friendly clients.
The food is good, very rich and tasty, and the choice is vast. Being italian I chose other cuisines, indian and tibetan style, and the dishes were all very good, big and yummy.
I went there also for my birthday, and they ended my dinner with a beautiful cake and candles as a present....
A place I will always remember. Go for it!

“Delicious taste of Italian cuisine in the heart of Mcleod Ganj”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Friendly service and tasteful Italian dishes with reasonable prices, in the heart of Upper Dharamsala. The service is bit slow, but that's India! For anyone willing for some cheese, salad, pasta, pizza, it's yummy!
I missed Italian tastes while I was over there, since I am from Brazil and an Italian cuisine lover. Friendly staff, nice food.
