A taste of Sardegna

Italian, Italiancuisine



Me and my food buddy were recommended to try a deli cafe in Newcastle called Mascalzone out and it was money well spent.

For our starter my friend and decided to have a INSALATE Salads as starter . We were initially going to other a Bosa salad and a Clementina salad which had Tuna, green beans, new potatoes, boiled eggs, mixed salad & cherry tomatoes

And the waitress told us that the salad is quite big portion so we shared the  Bosa salad instead . The salad consisted of : Salmon, prawns, avocado & mixed salad.  The portion was so big that we both couldn’t finish it .

The Bosa salad cost £6.95

For my main I had a Pollo Gutturu.   Chicken breast with fresh mushrooms in a rich mustard & cream sauce. For someone who isn’t really a fan of mustard , the sauce was so dann divine I would definitely come back to have that again .

It only cost £8.25

I cannot recall what my friend had nor do I have a picture of her meal . For my dessert I had a cheesecake and she had peach Ice tea .

The service was amazing the staff where very friendly and the people dinning there also were lovely .If ever in Newcastle please visit Mascalzone its located on 18-, 20 Goldspink Ln, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 1PP
