Jamie's Italian Yorkdale

My wife and I were recently at Yorkdale shopping and decided to try it out for lunch.   Fairly busy , 45 min wait  for a table but we ended up sitting at the antipasti bar instead . No wait.   I had a vague idea that it was supposed to open last spring , so we didn't realized until afterwards that it had only been open  since the beginning of Dec. I was somewhat wondering about the  service for a restaurant that I had thought was  open for  8- 9 months , but having been open only a few weeks I will cut them slack.  A couple rough patches in timing which irritated my wife but nothing extreme.   Food was a bit erratic with most being solidly good with a few stand outs.   

 

started with  Fresh crab bruschetta .  Fairly large amount of fresh crab on it but slightly  bland.

My wife had a wood fired pizza which was passable but there are at least 2 other places we go to that  consistently do a better job

 

  Small plate of Rabbit Casarecce pasta  that was excellent.  a fairly standard arugula  side salad and glass of   a very nice  house red.

My dessert was affogato, just might be the best thing I ate all last year.

One is  in Niagara Falls ,Antica Pizzeria ,   the other in Guelph   Boun Gusto .  

 

 

For the quality of the ingredients being used the prices are reasonable.  I really liked the small plate / large plate option.   the small plate of rabbit pasta was 10$   I think the arugula salad was  5 or 6 .  affogato I think was 6.   You could certainly rack up a decent bill in a hurry if you ordered a lot of food like the couple that was sitting next to us .  But we had a nice lunch for approx 70 $ including tip and tax.
