Brilliant food, fantastic setting, friendly efficient service, great food great wine great people We’ve been coming to this restaurant for years . It has grown into a culinary ‘hot spot’. Where booking is essential. They are full of Italians and tourists year round, deservedly so....They have earned their success, Carlo, his sister (who both speak English) and the waiters all work so very hard to maintain their crown of the best restaurant on trasimeno. Serving lake fish , cooked to perfection. Try the anti pasta, many delicious flavours on a plate. We have taken friends there on many occasions, they have all been impressed.More

First of all, it is recommendable to book a table in advance, as this place is very popular (which is completely understandable). We went there on a Friday evening with friends (two couples), and had the best time. The surrounding and atmosphere is great. A...lot is possible, sharing dishes, explanation of the menu and recommendations for the wine. We shared some appetizers, primi, secondi, and all had our own dessert (just because), and all of it was amazing! The prices are fine, and in our opinion even low for what the food and surrounding is worth. Totally recommend this place and definitely get the pasta with cacio e pepe, and the dessert with peach! A must go if in the neighborhood!!More

We had a lovely dinner here while visiting lake Trasimeno. Many restaurants have a street view, but this trattoria is located af a cozy quiet spot.

We were very impressed by the quality and the taste of the food here. Everything we tried was excellent. The fish platter starter, pasta with local Lake fish + saffron sauce and their traditional carpa dish are a must try! Staff were also very friendly,...great prices... Must not miss this restaurant!!More

Had a meal here on our fist night arriving in Passignano and have to say was not disappointing. the staff and food were fantastic and the manager was first class. He also looks like Andrea Pirlo for those of you who know your famous Italian...footballers. We couldn't praise them high enough and they were so accommodating that at the end i was given a card with his personal number to let us know that if there was anything that we were looking for, that he was at our disposal, an absolute gentleman. cant wait to go back next year again :)More

We liked this restaurant so much, that we returned with another couple the next week. The restaurant is not on the lake, but in the piazza behind the lakefront restaurants. It is a traditionally decorated and very warm and comfortable. On both visits, I ordered...the grilled perch, which is so fresh and cooked perfectly. My brother and sister-in-law had the perch in a tomato sauce, that they couldn't stop raving about. I'll definitely have to try that next time. Service was very good, and the prices are very reasonable. Make a reservation, because the restaurant can get busy. Very pleasant experience worth a return visit.More

Carlo's Trattoria Del Pescatore is set back one block off the main shorefront at Passignano frequented by locals. We have bee patronising the restaurant for years, usually for Sunday lunch at one of the tables under the pergola in the street. The welcome is friendly...and reservations are essential. Located off Lag Trasimeno it's hardly surprising the menu is seafood, beautifully cooked in a friendly authentic milieu. After ordering a nice Grechetto, on different occasions our party of 4 shared a platter of seafood antipasti, which included perch, carp, tench, and pile, and a side order of lightly fried white bait. For prima, two of us then shared small dish of home made pasta with tench sauce and then all of us followed with the restaurant's signature dish: boccarone cooked in aluminium foil with fennel, lemon and other herbs in the oven, and served with roast potatoes and grilled vegetables. Delicious. We finished with tiramisu, coffee and limoncello. Could not be better for a lazy Sunday lunch in an ambient setting. As usual, service by the family members was excellent. Of course we will return.More

I booked this restaurant via an email before we left the UK to travel to Italy for my wedding, it was for a large group of 28 people as a pre wedding get together so I wanted it to be just right for all our...guests, they were very quick to reply and said they would do us a special set menu as we were a large group. When we arrived, it was perfect, we had three large tables outside, a special set menu printed for each table, which was a set sharing starter and then a choice of several mains for a set price, this was great as meant everyone knew would they were paying in advance. The food was incredible and the service was amazing, and the pricing was also really good! Everyone had an amazing time and it really made the start of our wedding week in Italy perfect. Thank you for a great evening, I can highly recommend this restaurant to all!More
