The title just about sums it up! We were told by a local we had to try this place. Atmosphere is nice, lots of outdoor seating and inside it's dining hall-esque, with wooden booths next to a buffet where you can pick and choose whatever you like and pile it high onto a plate. Everything from seafood salad to fried... More

A very busy self-service restaurant. The portions are huge and the prices are low. Lots of very good food. My husband recommends the fried fish. A fairly large, air-conditioned interior, and a huge outside area overlooking Lake Trasimeno. Slightly confusing and chaotic method of ordering, but OK once you get used to it. We have been back many times.

This place, always crowded with locals, is definitely a must if you are passing by that area around the Trasimeno lake. You have to take a ticket with a number and wait patiently for your turn to order (don't worry: queues go farly quicly). Then you'll put foods and drinks on a tray and you'll look yourself for a free... More

This restaurant is reknown for miles around by the locals but you would never guess it from the outside. It is essentially a roadside caff, with lots of parking and plenty of outside seating areas. It is the food they all come for, in particular torta a testo, a kind of pitta bread which is stuffed with sausage, or salami,... More

It looks like a truck stop for a quick cheap bite and it is but it also provides good quality food. To order is a small challenge, take a number & figure out what to try, tip toeing to see what's on offer. Despite the crowd within minutes you will have your tray of food. A raging wood fire heats...

If you are near there this place is a must! Traditional heavy food, good value for money. Similar to a "fraschetta". Ideal for a good of friends.

This is our favorite local hangout located just beside the south bank of Lago Trasimeno. We try to time our arrival so that we can set on their huge outdoor terrace and watch the sunset fireworks as it sets over Castiglione del Lago. To say that this is a real scene is not enough. Grab a number, watch and wait,... More

La torta della Maria è la più buona che ci sia! Great simple hearty food. Avoid the fried stuff and go for the traditiona "torta al testo", a yeast-free flat bread which can be filled with anything you want, from cheese and veg to sausages or cold meats. A must if you are in the area!

If you are within 60 kilometers from this place, go as soon as you can get there. This is without a doubt one of the craziest and best places for the true Umbrian meal experiences at a price that will blow your mind. First off you can't miss it because the beautiful lake side restaurant's outside dining area is about... More
