Jamie's Trattoria lunch special


Feeling refresh and relaxed after a massage and facial!

Late last week following a few hours at a day spa, Mr FPL and I headed to Parramatta for a late lunch.

Being so late we were  limited to where we could grab a bite to eat. Luckily for us Jamie's Trattoria was still serving lunch, even better there was a lunch special offering two courses for $25 or three courses for $30.

Going for the better value/more food option we choose the three courses. In order as pictured we choose:

Crispy squid with garlic and lemon mayo, chilli, parsley and fried garlic.
Truffle tagliatelle with silky black truffle butter, aged parmesan, nutmeg and shaved black truffle.
Italian steak and fries with rainbow slaw.
Super food salad, grilled avocado, roasted beets, pulses and grains, broccolini, kale, pomegranate, toasted seeds with harissa dressing and artisan ricotta.
Epic brownie with vanilla ice cream and caramelised amaretti popcorn.
Creamy vanilla panna cotta with seasonal fruit compote and spiced crumble.

Trying each dish my favourites were the crispy squid, truffle tagliatelle which was very tasty and the epic brownie which was simply epic!

Given the time of the day the restaurant was quiet, however service was attentive.

Overall is was a great value, tasty late lunch that I enjoyed with a nice crisp glass of wine!

So... for those that know us, do we look younger after our facial?
