We ate several times at the restaurant since we found the food better that 4 other highly rated restaurants (including a Michelin rated 1 star, and a Michelin rated 2 star) where we had recently eaten. The grilled lamb was one of my favorites, as was the canoli.

This restaurant does not have a view of Lake Trasimeno so we were not sure we wanted to eat there. We ended up eating there the first night because it was in our hotel and we were too tired to go out. The next night we ate at a Michelin recommended "disaster." That was enough to make us eat every... More

Exquiste flavours and ambient surroundings and Marco is lovely! The seafood and meats are a must and so is the house red!

In Italy it's common to order side dishes separately. We didn't know so my husband ordered fish & that's all that was on the plate and it was excellent. I ordered pasta with fish but the fish was ground up into little tiny pieces & mixed into the noodles. Disappointing. The salad was not great-only lettuce, tomatoes & bitter radicchio.... More

This is a great little restaurant. It is easy to find as it is attached to a hotel, with lots of free parking opposite. Inside it is a very nice atmosphere with candles and music. The pizza is absolutely fantastic as are the profiteroles we had for dessert. We had no issue with the language barrier although we were trying... More

The restaurant is a part of Hotel La Vela which is so convenient if you are staying at the hotel. The restaurant is cosy, the food is excellent and the service is just spot on. So welcoming and helpful. We had lunch and dinner at the restaurant and every time it was faultless. We kept coming back because it was... More

We live in Passignano and we eat at this restaurant all the time. Marco is one of the friendliest people in town and he serves the best pizza. We love the ambiance of the place. The seafood dishes are marvelous as well. Try the Monkfish pasta when you get the chance. Its wonderful.

This restaurant is great value for money. The menu doesn't seem to change but there is plenty to choose from - and it's all really good. The owner and his family work really hard and make you feel very welcome - I for one can't wait to get back there.

The 3 course fixed menu (pasta, meat or fish with vegetables, dessert) is simple and cheap at €16.00. Unfortunately though, it's a surprise - as it is not published outside the restaurant, but the owner informs the diners once they've sat down. We would prefer to know what's on offer BEFORE entering a restaurant. In fact, one night we went... More
