Perfect with a salad
I love this tuna! Yes it is oily but olive oil is very good for you. The tuna is flaked in tiny pieces, it's pink in colour and not grey like some other brands. Some tuna have a heavy fish taste or metallic, this is a much lighter taste and I enjoy a tin of tuna with a salad. I buy Rio Mare usually when it's on offer.
Poor consistency and flavour
80 percent of the contents was mush and not suitable for any dish requiring flakes or chunks. There was no discernable flavour advantage over cheaper products. Extremely disappointing and absolutely not the expected premium quality.
Mushy & too oily for me
Like another reviewer, I bought this on the strength of other reviews. Far too much oil and very slushy. Definitely not worth the extra money above other brands.
Far too oily, very unpleasant. Won’t buy again.
Been meaning to try this, to compare. Very glad it was half price, would have been extremely miffed if I’d paid full price. Even after a long draining and allowing the contents to sit on kitchen paper, it was too oily for me. Did not enjoy. Won’t buy again even if the food shortages start again. It didn’t look the illustration either. We’ve eaten far nicer Tesco tinned tuna. Mightn’t have been so unpleasant in brine or spring water, but I won’t be trying any more. I’ll stick with Tesco tuna in sunflower oil Thankyou.
Far too much olive oil and quite mushy. Given the previous good reviews, am quite disappointed - sorry!.
This tuna is the best! Please make available the brine and spring water ones too.
Haven't eaten it yet, but I used to est it with Ol
Haven't eaten it yet, but I used to est it with Olive Oil in Italy. beautiful. this is the first time I have come across this in the UK, I have often asked Tesco's staff to try and get tuna in Olive oil before but have always been met with a blank stare. I am sure if you put it on shelves with tuna in ordinary oil, I am sure it would take off. Only saying.
Great memories of Nonna!
I’ve been eating this tuna since I was a little girl but could only buy it in the UK in a good, traditional Italian deli. Thank you Tesco for stocking the item :) Try it mixed with cold green beans, red onions and a gentle drizzle of olive oil and finish with a warm ciabatta. Molto Buono!
Fantastic quality product. No wonder it’s number 1 in Italy. I also like the fact it’s pole & line caught. The taste is pure and sensational.
