Today I went for lunch at Jamie’s Italian in Manchester with Elizabeth and Alison. We don’t normally eat out at lunch times prefering to eat out for dinner but we love Jamie’s Italian so when we heard about their Super Lunch offering we couldn’t resist popping along to check it out.
Depending on where your nearest Jamie’s Italian is the price does change slightly from £10.95 for two courses to £12.95 or £12.95 for three courses to £14.95. As our local restaurant is in the middle of the city ours was the higher price but still amazing value.
I ordered the Slow-roasted squash soup with Focaccia to start, followed by the Italian steak (£2 additional supplement) although I requested that I had vegetables instead of fries and I finished with Salted Caramel Ice cream with butterscotch sauce and crushed Amaretti biscuits. It was all beautifully seasoned and such brilliant value coming in at £16.95 for the three courses because of the steak.
The kids menu is always delicious with the kids struggling to choose what to have. Elizabeth opted for the bigger kids sized meal of Baby Organic Beef Burgers for £6.95 (which includes a drink). Alison opted for the little kids sized meal of Happy Chicken Lollipops which cost £6.50 (which includes a drink).
All the kids meals include a fresh shake-me salad which my girls love and that is always the first thing to be devoured. I love the fact that even though the kids menu had burgers and chicken it wasnt unhealthy battered chicken or rubbish burgers covered in cheese. The meals both came with baked hedgehog potatoes which the girls really enjoyed and were so much healthier than fries which is what you would normally have served for children elsewhere.
The whole meal was extremely affordable and delicious and thanks to my Jamie’s Italian Gold Card we also got some special tasters and a free drink each which is always a bonus. It is well worth signing up for the gold card as you get free tasters everytime you go and the offers change each month with you sometimes getting money off your bill or other special treats.
As a family we find Jamie’s Italian to be a great place to go for fresh, wholesome food that is suitable for everyone.
