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

 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 300x199 Italian Night at Tullie Inn, Balloch

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

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.
