Saturdays won't be the same now that my friend has gone
Every Tuesday, Paolo Tullio served us a treat at 'Weekend' magazine, delivering his weekly restaurant review.
Hugely informative, highly entertaining, never barbed and always characteristically fair, Paolo Tullio wasn't a food snob, though he had every right to be.
Ireland's favourite restaurant reviewer held the coveted accolade of a Michelin star for his Armstrong's Barn restaurant in Co Wicklow for two years at the end of the 1970s. Paolo used to entertain his guests by playing his guitar and the irony that the premises later morphed into a recording studio for Zig and Zag wasn't lost on him.
