Situated at Melrose Arch Boulevard, Jamie’s Italian restaurant will be serving weekly pasta star dishes for April with sourced ingredients. Visitors will experience authentic and fresh Italian made pastas.
Humble pasta has been an integral part of Italian culture since Marco Polo was rumoured to have introduced it to the country in the 13th Century. Pasta recipes throughout the country vary from region to region, family to family, nonna to nonna, but one thing remains consistent – it’s always treated with respect.
That’s exactly why the restaurant treat its pasta with respect, too – one of our chefs comes in bright and early every morning to make a fresh batch for the day ahead, extruding it in all the different shapes and sizes on the menu, ready to be cooked to order.
The restaurant will never use pasta if it’s more than 12 hours old. Inspired by Gennaro Contaldo’s, Jamie’s Italian pasta recipe contains just four high-quality ingredients – Italian “00” flour, semolina, organic eggs and water – nothing else. This results in beautifully rich, tasty Italian pasta dishes.
It is then cooked to order and paired with well-chosen ingredients. Every pasta shape is designed to perfectly hold the sauce it’s teamed with – traditional creamy carbonara works wonderfully with lengths of spaghetti, and classic tomato-based sauces are well suited to tubes of penne.
Plus, the bronze dye heads on our pasta machines give the pasta a ridged texture, helping the sauce stick to it even better.
