Just had a short mid-week break in Bath and decided to visit Jamie's Italian before a theatre visit on the Wed night. Table was booked for 6:15 and the restaurant was probably about a third full.
My first impression was quite curious. From the entrance we were led seemingly through the kitchen and into a small seating area. The decor of the restaurant was in the style of an open Italian kitchen. Meats hanging, veg in baskets and rows of risotto rice boxes guarding the kitchen activities.
Our table was strangely for 4 people (we were 2) and tables for 2 seemed rare. We were offered drinks instantly and the waitress also gave us the option for tap water in addition. Seeing the drinks prices, this was accepted straight away. Drinks were expensive £4+ for 330ml bottle of beer. However I found the food menu priced how I would expect.
My girlfriend had the risotto balls (she's a vege) and was very impressed. I had the meat slate for £6.95 and I actually thought this a good value starter given Italian meat starters in other places can approach £10. The slate also came with a selection of cheeses and chilli salad.
I had the 'Jamie's recommended' Turkey for main. It was very very dry dish so I would not recommend it. I've had similar mains but they usually come with some melted cheese or tomato sauce. Holly had the mushroom cannelloni and again was impressed.
The bill came to £50 for 2 starters, mains and drinks. I didn't feel like I'd paid too much at all.
The atmosphere was ok. It was dark but not too dark. The waiters were quite hectic and the menus were extremely cheap looking but the service was good.
Overall I would recommend it, but probably not if you like a few drinks.
