Tullie_Inn_Italian_Night_Menu



A menu with matched and chat from wines.
Belstar Prosecco to start. Sweet, light, fruity but with a tartness behind it.

 



Tullie_inn_Insalata_Caprese



Insalata Caprese

needed a bit of seasoning which is good to do yourself.   Pesto not too strong to taste but lovely smell.  Worked well.  Creamy mozzarella.

 



Tullie_inn_Bruschetta_Legumi_Arrostiti



Bruschetta Legumi Arostiti

choice of tomato and basil or roasted peppers, we went for the peppers and it smelled great -
2 slices of nicely toasted slices of bread with roasted red and yellow peppers and a small side salad

Served with a slightly acidic but lovely light zesty white from Tuffoli Gavi (Italy)



Tullie_Inn_Parmigiano_Melanzane



 Parmigiano Melanzane

Aubergine not greasy, quite meaty, held the sauce well and actually very pasta-like too, so the pasta wasn’t missed making this a good low carb option. Thick sauce. Ms foodie kept stealing it, so must have been good!

Tullie_inn_Penne_Sardo



Penne Sardo

pasta cooked al dente, good kick, bits of sausage and pepperoni and chilli. Fresh Parmesan.   Good coating tom sauce.

Both dishes served with Riva Leone Barbera (Italy) Red smelled lovely, fruity and wholesome, had a dry bitter finish



Tullie_inn_Panna_Cotta



 Panna Cotta

Very creamy and strong vanilla taste, tart fruits to accompany.



Tullie_inn_Tiramisu



Tiramisu

Firm not soggy sponge, came with fresh cream to pour and a biscotti wrapped up thingy
Nice coffee taste.
Both served with Brachetto d’Aqui Rosa Regale Castello Banfi (Italy), Fuzzy red, sweet and fruity blackcurrant taste, only 7.5% Like a Lambrusco

 

Overall, a great night, well worth £25 a head.  Very good food, informative chat from Bibendum as well as some good wine.  Friendly staff and a very nice setting for this type of event.
