Jamie Oliver says he makes mistakes all the time. Question is, does he learn from them? Recent reviews of this restaurant suggest he does not.
I first visited Jamie's because when he started his restaurant chain, I had delicious food such as truffle tagliatelle, prawn linguine and a glorious seafood bucatini. But over the years I have become more disenchanted with the quality of dishes and visited less and less.
However,as I strolled by one weekend on my way to another eatery I spotted my beloved truffle tagliatelle on the menu and was drawn in.
The dish was the worst version I had ever tasted. It was really watery and lacked flavour. I hoped it was a fluke and had another pasta dish, penne arrabbiata. For some reason this dish was also watery and lack any proper flavour. The pasta did not even taste fresh.
Needless to say I massively regretted acting on impulse. Next time I will go to Padella because it is much more delicious and cheaper and the people creating the food seem to have a lot more passion for pasta.
