This popular island locale in Lake Trasimena is a very touristic restaurant. There are only one or two other restaurants on the island so reservations may be necessary at times but not in early May.
There is a large outdoor terrace section across the street from the main restaurant which is where most patrons were eating. We enjoyed watching the pheasants strut around the property. The views of the lake are minimal from the dining area, but there is a garden walk where the lake can be viewed.
Service was good, efficient. Hubby and I shared an antipasto platter of meats and cheeses followed by a pasta dish each. I ordered the pasta with fungi (mushrooms) which was slightly less tasteful than others I had enjoyed.
Note that at this restaurant, as most others we dined at, the bread basket is set by the table. If you eat the bread, there is a separate charge for it—usually 2 to 3 euros per person. If you don’t eat the bread, there is no charge.
We shared a bottle of local wine. While the food and service were decent, and the island is of some interest to historians, and the boat ride to the island was pretty, we would not likely make the journey just to dine here again.
