We're not big fans of over-wrought, over styled food. We were a little dubious looking at the photos before we lunched here yesterday that this might be the case. It isn't. The presentation of the food is indeed 'nouvelle' and the chef/patron's time in Switzerland, France and Northern Italy shows. The food is, simply put, delicious. After a week of carne, carne and carne we needed an alternative - and fresh fish was what we sought.

We had three antipasti - a delightful carparcio of persico (pike) seasoned with fennel, polpo - which was cooked perfectly and butter-soft and not rubbery and fiore di zuccu stuffed with ricotta. One of us had the pasta with smoked fish, another the baccala with cecci and I the eel stew - which was exploding with flavour - exquisite. For dessert, the semi-freddo with lamponi was - ok.

Moderately priced, but good value. Attentive service. They're open in the winter as well - so we'll be back...

We have spent a couple of weeks in Umbria and have driven down the mountain to Passignano for several meals. The two best have been a dinner and a lunch at Il Molo.
Sit in the A/C's room streetside and watch th world go by or on a large terrace on the street behind (a pedestrian mall) Chef/Owner Franco has a deft hand with the varied freshwater fish from the lake, creating wonderful antipasti and primi with them...many stuffed into homemade ravioli or saucing tangling. Second I feature wonderful fish and meat dishes and we sampled a hearty stew of Cinghale; the most tender cow cheeks from Tuscany's Chianina cows. Everything beautifully presented by Franco's charming son, Andrea and a very helpful multi-lingual wait staff team. Worth every minute, every euro and every bite.

After boat ride on the lake had light lunch at this lovely restaurant. A plate of bruschetta each. So incredibly delicious, neat thin sliced of bread with three different toppings, all fish related.

Great staff, very helpful and one of the best coffees I've had.

Visited with extended family. Food and service was great. Very good value for money. We had 4 kids in our group from 7 months to 6 years and they enjoyed their food and time there. The main course for us adults was a bit light, but the primi piattis were of an ok serving size.
