Jamie’s Italian @ VivoCity Singapore

Jamie’s Italian. Heard so much about it, and finally got around to visiting it. Located in VivoCity Singapore by the riverfront, it makes for pretty dining indeed.

And Jamie’s is definitely a perennial favorite, attracting everyone from local yuppies to people who work in the area of VivoCity. The dining room has a brightly lit, cheery contemporary feel to it, not unlike that of the personality of Jamie himself, and the food is strictly Italian, with first-rate pastas and expertly executed dishes. Main courses are gargantuan.
