What I love most about this restaurant is what they do not do. They are not trying to be creative because of creativity itself, but because they want to make perfect versions of the best Italian food. And you can taste their love of real good Italian food. The flavors and textures they can make using traditional Italian ingredients! Impressive,... More

Been there many times and many times I was surrounded by ambassadors and gourmet people. The experience is probably one of the best in the entire country. The service is, well a two Michelin stars service! Carta dei vini e cantina second to no one. To try: trout sausages

Wonderfully treated. The set menu with river fish is a must. Service outstanding. Nearby visit Labro a middle age small town only 10 km away.

I travel a great deal, but can't recall where I have experienced such a disappointing blend of pretense and minimalist servings with such price. The menu is certainly interestingly innovative, and as such there is creativity there. However, my wife and I - choosing different dishes - could hardly discuss them afterwards: the servings tend towards the miniscule, and whilst... More

It has been a long time ago since I was at a restaurant with two Michelin stars but it was well worth the money. It is clear that the Trip advisor rating system can't apply to this high category of restaurants so don't compare it with my other ratings. I have added some photo's to give an impression since it...

This was by some way the gastronomic highlight of our trip to Lazio and Umbria. There was never any question whether it was worth the 2 hour drive from Perugia. We went for the river and lake fish menu which was imaginative and perfectly executed: carp, trout and pike perch all made an appearance. The highlight though was the dessert:... More

This exceptional restaurant in a bucolic location: the hilltop medieval town of Rivodutri is nearby, and it is just a few meters from the "sorgente" (source) of a stream of water of astonishing clarity as it runs past the restaurant, on toward the Nera river and ultimately the Tiber. La Trota is fairly remote -- over an hour and a... More

I had a pleasure of interviewing Maurizio Serva and meeting his brother, the cook. Maurizio is great to talk to, a natural born storyteller. His brother is a gret cook, together they are one of the best: the way they transform the traditional into something new is amazing because they remain on the right side of the tradition. They still... More

I was never a fan of the river fish, and i have never visited this beatiful restaurant before. Now that i have been there i changed my mind over the river fish: this kind of fish has a dignity, a taste and personality, but must be treated by capable hands, able to exalt its characteristics. This is what i found... More

My last vist to La Trota was exactly as the several previous ones: perfect! There is no other word to describe excellent, deeply inventive yet traditional, fully satisfying cuisine, unobtrusive, yet timely, attentive and authentically welcoming service, in a word, a real experience! I visited many starred restaurants and La Trota is the only one I keep going back. So... More
