After reading the glowing reviews from media food critics, and seeing the long queues outside, I was expecting something special. Not so! We had pre-booked so did not have to queue. Once inside we were given menus and shortly after a basket of bread. That was very good, complimentary but not really enough for a party of five adults. The meals got mixed reactions. My son had the wild rabbit with pasta, quite tasty but very little rabbit, he counted five small pieces. Son-in-law had the scallopini with prosciutto. No prosciutto visible on the plate. The waiter said it was pounded into the veal during preparation. That was hard to believe as the veal was extremely thin and had no hint of prosciutto in the taste. I had the special lasagne which was probably the most substantial of all our choices. This was actually quite nice apart from the fact that too much pumpkin masked the taste of the other ingredients. My wife and daughter shared a large serve of calamari with three side salads, all quite nice, and polenta chips which were not really to their taste so would not have again. For what we got it was not a cheap meal and for the money we expected better. The small glasses of wine at $10 each were good but expensive for the amount in the glass. I feel that a lot of people go there to try it out after hearing all the hype. I like Jamie's TV shows and books but I will not be going back to his restaurant in the foreseeable future
