I've searched through many Umbria and Tuscany posts but have not found any recommendations for eating the local cuisine on lake Trasimeno. The vegetarian restuarant, Montali, sounds delicious but i would prefer the lake fish. I am here two nights and would like a simple, traditional meal at a fair price. I have the guide for the area restuarants but do not want to end up anywhere too touristy. Any suggestions?
Have your guidebooks mentioned this restaurant, recommended by Gambero Rosso? I mention it because it is all about the lake fish:
Any trustworthy locals with whom you can consult about whether this restaurant is worthwhile? I haven't eaten there myself.
Thank you for the suggestion, barberienibee. We ended up eating there -- the carp was great as well as the pici with goose sauce. The perch fillet and minestrone were good, but not great. We were hoping for more of a hole in the wall, but are very happy that we got to try the carp cooked in porchetta.
