Review of Jamie’s Italian Restaurant in Glasgow

I had lunch at Jamie’s Italian restaurant in Glasgow with one of our sons. I had a Travel Zoo voudher for a two course lunch or dinner for two people from the set menu which was due to expire soon.

I had paid £26 for the voucher, after deduction of the 10% discount during a promotion. I was so annoyed when I booked our table and read on the website that there was a two course from the set menu offer for £12 available from noon to 6pm Monday to Friday. However, I thought I’d only paid a couple of pounds more than that, so it wasn’t such a big deal.


Jamies Italian in Glasgow is located bang in the city centre in George Square. There were tables outside, but we didn’t fancy sitting so close to the the traffic.

I was rather surprised by how quiet it was inside Jamie’s Italian, considering it was Friday lunchtime and the central location.

I thought that it was a bit dark inside. In my opinion, the tables were too close together, especially as it’s a large restaurant.

The meal began well. My Italian style nachos were good.

Simon enjoyed his fried squid. I thought it should have been served with a small salad.

The main courses were disappointing. The salmon in my tagliatell had been so crumbled to make a small piece of fish so further.  A few peas had been thrown in for some colour contrast. In addition. I thought that the portion size was quite small.  I’m sure that I could have cooked a much tastier version at home.

Simon also found his main course of spaghetti carbonara to be bland

Suffice to say that I was not impressed by Jamie’s Italian in Glasgow.
