    What does Arnold Schwarzenegger say before eating pasta?
    PASTA LA VISTA BABY!

  •  

    Takeaway ok?

  •  

    How come their pasta menu has two different prices? serve size or? If it is, I assume this $10 pasta lunch will be the smaller portion?

    •  

      It’s entree and main sizing, my portion last time was a good size so I believe it’s main for $10.

    • +8 votes

      Beware. The serving size of the "mains" in the Perth restaurant was comically small.
      Had to have 3 pints of beer to top up

  •  

    The Octopus ravioli is delicious, although i noticed there was no crab meat on top as described on the menu…." topped with picked white crab"

        Tried at Canberra very average any restaurant can do it

        • +2 votes

          Agreed tried the canberra one once when it opened up and was disappointed, tried it again after a few months and was even more disappointed. The price is way too high for the level of quality received.

        •  

          @Your Friend:

          Agreed. Also ate at the canberra restaurant just the other night. Was it nice? Sure. Would I pay the normal menu price for it? Definitely not.

          I actually likened it to something that could be whipped up at home with a bit of cooking knowledge.

    •  

      Agreed. I don’t know how they’re still open. Not only was the food average but the super annoying waitress came over and tried to read a confidential document I was reading for my lunch companion! Never again!

    I have been to this deal at Jamies. Great value, you can choose either entree or main size ..still $10!!

    No vic 😓

    Doesn't say (at least I couldn't see) if it is just for lunch or also includes dinner?

  • +2 votes

    Thanks OP. Booked a date with the misses. Won't get in trouble now.

  •  

    are walk ins allowed, or do you need to book?

    also, curious, do they run this promotion every year?

    •  

      Either is fine I believe, think they run it every so often, last one was 3 months ago.

      •  

        oh cool thanks ..

        the oz bargainer in me wants to ask for free tap water with my meal but im scared they wont allow it.

        • +2 votes

          Of course they will and never be embarrassed to ask for tap water. In fact, I think they need to provide it as an option by law but I may be wrong… I am pretty sure they provide it anyway. Enjoy your pasta (and tap water :-). You may want to book because they do fill up fast (at least the one in Perth used to).

        • +1 vote

          Definitely can get tap water, they don’t care, it’s to get you to come back again and pay full price, it worked on me lol.

          oh i see, thanks for the tip

          @Triton: try asking for raw water, it's all the rage apparently

        •  

          @mrhatken:
          its a human right i think - if you request it they have to serve you water but i assume if they wanted to they could charge you for the cup usages XD

        •  

          Table water sounds classier when you ask for it ;)
          We ask for it everywhere (cheap to expensive) no one cares as it's just cold tap water.

        • +1 vote

          @mrhatken: If a venue sells alcohol, by law they have to provide free water (in NSW at the very least)

        •  

          They need to provide free tap water by law. I remember when I was young, some restaurants used to charge significantly for water (they said it was imported). Laws changed that. You can still buy your high-priced imported water if you want :)

        •  

          @Xebozone:

          If they serve alcohol (have a liquor licence), they need to provide free drinking tap water. If they don't serve alcohol, it's optional I believe.

          I doubt a well known restaurant doesn't serve alcohol.

        •  

          @Ughhh: McDonald's?

        •  

          @muncan:

          I don't believe they legally are required to, as they don't serve alcohol thus are not governed by the liquor licence laws. They may out of goodwill to their customers, subject to their policy or at managers descretion.

          Mcdonalds not really a "restaurant".

        •  

          @Ughhh: OK you got me - it's a "supermarket"

        •  

          Tried McDonalds last in 2004, has anyone tried it lately? Any good?

  •  

    seems to be okay for Saturday as well. Cheap Saturday night meal at an expensive restaurant sorted :D

    Went to Brisbane Jamie's. Was very underwhelming. An absolutely miniscule amount of pasta and not good value, even at $10.

    I got pasta, wife got cannoli. My pasta was "okay". Her cannoli was very bland.

    I wouldn't go back for $5.

    Agree with this. Been a handful of times now and they're really getting worse.
    I won't go back, even at $10 a dish.

          No.. you can just comment and not upvote you know?

          Just seems strange you’re totally against the deal due to it being bad, yet then upvote the deal. They go against each other.

          @Porthos: not sure why I'm explaining upvoting on a deal, but here goes; it's a good deal, but one on which I'll pass based on personal experiences.

        • +2 votes

          @footyboy: I think it's fair to upvote the deal because the OP went to the trouble of posting it for everyone's benefit and not everyone knows good food. If they did, domino's would be out of business.

    So they are back to what the pasta is worth realistically without the mark up :-/

    Have to Rank at the bottom of my Italian restaurant list, can't see myself even going for $10…

    •  

      Completely agree with you. Started well, pain in the backside to deal with in that they wouldn't take bookings and then it may felt like too much of an effort.

      I went there for a party a couple of years ago and noticed that the quality of the food had dropped dramatically so I don't bother anymore.

      There's far better places to eat Italian food.

      If you're in Sydney, try Da Alfredo I'm Glebe. I recently discovered it and I can recommend it to be a very authentic Napolitano restaurant.

      • +1 vote

        Honestly didn’t want to slag them off, because I’ve only been once but the quality was like lunch pasta from those food court places… I couldn’t believe it thought maybe just a bad day. Me and my wife’s fave is il baretto in surry hills. Thanks for the tip will check it out next time we go for Italian.

        •  

          Ditto re il Baretto.

          Bring your eatin' shoes to Da Alfredo because you'll want to eat a lot.

          Most of the Italian food you know is napoletano anyway and these guys are really good. Closest you'll get to being in Castellamare Di Stabia!

          There's one thing I never found here that's amazing and it's called "Panuozzo". Amazing!

          Jamie's was decent when it opened but, as you said, the quality is mediocre at best now.

        They take bookings online now no matter how small your party

        •  

          They should've taken booking from the beginning. Things may have been different.

        • +1 vote

          @imurgod: They only took bookings if you had more than six people. I agree that it's quite annoying that they didn't do that in the first place for smaller groups

        Havent tried Da'alfredo's pasta but their pizzas are AMAZING. And yes authentic napoletano!! Mmmm.

        •  

          Forget the pasta, pizza and the amazing antipasto!

          Have you tried their ricotta pizza? Out of this world.

          Now I'm hungry.

        •  

          "authentic napoletano!!"
          How can you tell?

        •  

          @pupkin: Well don't know for sure but one of the closest you will get outside of Naples. Went to Naples and tried 4 pizzerie in 2 days. and da'alfredo is quite similar to that. re the crust, the toppings, oven etc. slow rise of the dough, char, thin in the middle, chewy puffy crust, easier to digest. use the san marzano tomatoes. does that help?

        •  

          @chocfrogs456:
          Just asking as I know there're strict rules exist for so-called Pizza Napoletana:
          http://slice.seriouseats.com/2008/06/european-union-pizza-ma...

          For me personally anything baked in electric oven is not a pizza.

        •  

          @pupkin: Completely agree! Must be woodfired!! Yes i am aware of the AVPN accreditation. However apparently it is even not the best indicator as the people just come in and check you have the correct flour, oven etc. and then they never come back and spot check so you can literally just present the correct ingredients then change once they leave. Also apparently it costs a lot, so it is now disputed if it is just for money… There are some accredited places in syd (verace, gigis - which is a joke as they dont even serve a margherita now, only for a marinara) but some fabulous ones who havent bothered to get the accreditation e.g. rosso antico - they got their oven shipped in from Napoli and had to take down some of the front of the building to get it in. It's what i would call legit but they use different flour as they have been experimenting twith the dough to make it even tastier, digestible and nice texture. Pretty sure Da Alfredo is a woodfired oven.

        •  

          @chocfrogs456:
          Aperitivo, in Leichhardt, is accredited. Good pizzas. Via Napoli in Lane Cove and Hunter Hill has their ovens from Itali. Their pizzas are good on less busy days.

        •  

          @pupkin: Yes aperitivo is good too. Definitely recommend Rosso Antico in Enmore/Newtown. I've been to via Napoli in surry hills and found although the pizzas are good, I don't enjoy the environment. They try to upsell you and kick you out as fast as they can.

    So it's a franchise chain, not run by Jamie himself. Says you need a million pound to start.

      IIRC the Aussie ones are owned by JO. Bought them back after the company who bought the rights to the aussie franchise went bust.

    I'm by no means a food critic, but 2 of these, some polenta chips, bread basket and its a pretty good meal for 2 for about $30. These days, some food courts can't even feed 2 people for that unless you go with the fast food chains.

    • +3 votes

      The bread basket isn't worth it these days. Way back when, when they first appeared on the scene, it was a complimentary item … Now it's like $7 or something?

      •  

        I went in opening week to Adelaide and it was about $3 "per person" from memory. Not all had to have it and each "person"/serve was 1 each of 4 different breads. If its $7, i would be choosing a different side instead

        • +1 vote

          Bread baskets were $2.25 for the first few years. You could get lunch for two at Jamie's for under $5.
          You'd leave your dignity at the door, and collect it on the way out.

    had the ravioli last time this deal was on, literally had 6 pieces of ravioli.. Sad.

    Went to the JO in Adelaide a few months ago, thought it was great.

    No JO in Melbourne, but we don't really need another Italian restaurant.

      Melbourne has an abundance of good Italian food establishments.

      You don't want a Jamie's Italian there

      • -2 votes

        Been to a few of "Italian food establishments" on our trips to Melbourne. Can't really say anything good about them.

        In my opinion Melbourne restaurants are overhyped. There're probably more of them than in Sydney but not necessary better.
