• Date Night at Jamie's Pizzeria •

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love food. 

Being Italian, I've grown up around food, particularly pizza and pasta. So when I was invited to review Jamie's Pizzeria in Cambridge, I had high hopes and high expectations. And I got exactly what I hoped for.

Attention to detail is key in every good restaurant. Everything from the ambience, to the attentive staff, to the selection of vegetarian pizzas on the menu (win), I knew my review was going to be a good one. We rocked up to the beautiful restaurant at 5.30 on a Sunday evening and we were immediately impressed by the classic Jamie Oliver, rustic and cosy decor. We were served by an accommodating (I had so many extra toppings) and lovely waitress who looked after us for the evening and she knew lots about the pizzas and also the wine.

We started with garlic bread and ricotta with lemon. Well, let's just say they don't do things by halves... this is my kind of portion. This starter was gorgeous and carby and basically everything you'd ever want for a pizzeria. Heavenly!
Our pizza's came and they were delicious. I had the Fungi Misti and Josh had the Chilli Freak (of course he did). We both added an egg, anchovies, olives and some chilli oil and the thin base, amazing tomato sauce and the right amount of mozzarella (loads) was perfect.

Of course though, naturally, we had to share a dessert. We went for the Epic Chocolate Brownie with salted caramel ice cream, which we had to share due to the humungous pizza's we'd just devoured. It was incredible. I'm a massive sucker for a brownie at the best of times, but when it comes with my favourite ice cream, I'm there.

Truly, a gorgeous evening. Lots of food, wine and chat in one of my favourite cities - my favourite being Rome, but the pizza's were so good and the weather was so warm that you could almost close your eyes and you were there!

If you're around Cambridge and have a pizza-craving, I'd definitely recommend Jamie's. The pricing is spot on and they are as close to classic Italian pizzas as you can get - a nice thin base, simple yet delicious sauce and an uneven shape.
