Jamie’s Italian in Adelaide, Australia, is located central at King William Street, and close to North Terrace and Rundle Mall. Jamie’s Italian is an Italian Restaurant-Chain by famous Chef, Book-Author and so much more, Jamie Oliver. Famous for his TV-Show ‘naked Chef’ and the ’15 Minute Recipes’ Jamie Oliver offers his creations in his worldwide Restaurants. May it be the Location, or the good Food, when I went to Jamie’s Italian in Adelaide at 7 pm the Restaurant was almost completely full. Luckily I got a seat at the counter, with a direct view of the chef preparing the Antipasti.
Even though Jamie’s Italian in Adelaide was almost full the staff, mainly young people, were always super friendly and helpful. As I already had a look at their menu online I knew what I wanted, a big portion Rigatoni Pomodoro. They come in a small and a big size, for 12.90 or 19.90 AUD. The Rigatoni Penne come with a sweet tomato sauce with garlic, basil, mascarpone, mozzarella, Italian hard cheese & herby breadcrumbs. What was so funny to me is that they have original Italian water. Keeping in mind that I just flew in from Europe it was so crazy that the water already travelled the same way. Still thinking about the water, a friendly waitress already brought the Rigatoni to my table. Just a bit over 5 minutes since I ordered, what a fast service! The first bite tasted exactly like Penne in Italia, but with more and more bites I realized that the Penne were still a bit too al dente/uncooked. The Sauce tasted fresh and well seasoned, the combination of Mascarpone and Mozzarella was Genius and I have never ever eaten Pasta with breadcrumbs before, which was interestingly good.
In total, I paid 34 AUD, 22€, for a Coke, a 0,7l Bottle Water and the big Portion Rigatoni. As this is one of the few vegetarian meals at Jamie’s Italian in Adelaide I can absolutely recommend it, if you don’t want a Pizza. Check out other Restaurants in Adelaide.
