Lo Spinnaker is a smart little restaurant with very good sea-food. It overlooks Lake Trasimeno and unfortunately is right on the busy road along the lake front. We had very good risotto with perch, grilled salmon and penne with truffle followed by scallopine limone. Two side dishes of spinach and small roasted potatoes were ideal for both of us. The 15 euro lunch menu was terrific value and far too much to eat. I am not sure how anyone can eat the 3 course 20 euro menu! We had a very pleasant half bottle of Venetian chardonnay. It was a hot day and we sat inside as dislike sitting by the road but most tourists opt for outdoors. It does have air-conditioning but they hadn't bothered to turn it on!! The useful thing is that this restaurant is open on Mondays when most places are closed and their day of closing is Wednesday.

Franco and Lara knows how to treat custumers...but most of all they know how to treat amazingly fresh fish... By far the best food in town... No matter which season you are hitting this place they never let you down. The wine selection is good but could be expanded especially in the red wine section.

One of the top five restaurants I ever visited in all of my live until today.The best restaurant for Italian food on the lake Trasimeno.
The best all' arabiatta and filetto tartufo nero. Once you eat this at da Franco you never get better els where.

We were in Passignano on a Sunday morning and selected Lo Spinnaker for lunch. The weather was cool so we ate inside as it was a little chilly to eat out. We ordered the set 15 euro menu and tried a couple of different items and shared.

The service and wine were very good.

It's a go back to place when next in the area.

Buon appetite.

we had a really lovely meal here on Tuesday night, we opted for the set menu at 15euro a head and a bottle of local vino which was 16 euro.
We both started with pasta, sausage, black truffle and cream it was A M A Z I N G! the BEST pasta dish I have ever eaten - and I have had many!
Then I had salmon and salad - the salmon was fresh and hot and perfectly cooked. Kev had scallopina with mushrooms and fries he loved it too
Can def recommend, the ambience setting and situation of the restaurant was perfect
thank you
