Nice little restaurant overlooking the Lake. Great fish and wine with excellent service! After walking around the town we decided on Sottovento because of it's location and menu. Two couples enjoyed the pleasant leasurely atmosphere. Would highly recommend. While in town check out the Olive wood products (cutting boards, etc) in some of the smaller shops, much better prices then... More

We ate here on the last night of our holiday which was a Monday. Even so the restaurant was busy and we were lucky to have one of the few remaining walk-in tables (which went about 10 minutes after we arrived). Sottovento is well set out and is aiming at a higher end than many of the restaurants in Passignano.... More

Food Ok when it came. Prawns indifferent but rest of the party enjoyed theirs. What was not enjoyable was a)having to convince the waiting staff we had reserved a table, b)waiting at least 10 minutes to order a drink, c) being told red wine en route only to have to chase 3 X and then it appeared as we were...

Cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. Authentically Italian (with an English speaking waitress who was sooooo patient and kind!) We visited with 2 children (6&9) one who is dairy intolerant. Not a problem, they asked which bits she liked and didn't and made her her own pasta dish. Our food was amazing (I had lobster risotto and he had Sea... More

We visited with our 2 children (7 and 9 years). Although I would describe it as a grown up restaurant the staff were wonderful with the children and made some plain pasta for them as the menu was not child friendly. Beautiful restaurant and a great comprehensive menu and a nice change from pizza and pasta. Me and my husband... More

Our family choose this place based on host's recommendation and excellent TA reviews, it did not disappoint! Service was terrific, ambience was terrific, and food was a highlight of our trip. Gorgeous setting on shores of lake Trasimeno and prices very fair. Would highly recommend it to others. Waitstaff speak pretty good,English ànd are very attentive and helpfulq..

This is by far one of the nicest restaurants in Passignano. The food is really a cut above the rest, both in terms of quality and presentation. Unusually for Italy, the front of house is entirely staffed by attractive young women. They specialise in raw fish, which they serve in a dozen different ways. I had their sashimi of salmon... More

For once we had not done our research for a suitable restaurant for lunch so we were pleased we managed to pick a great restaurant by our old method - how busy and how nice the decor looks! We managed to get one of the 3 tables on the small patio in front of the restaurant which gives you a... More

Beautiful views of Lake Trasimeno from the white awning front porch of the restaurant on a gorgeous spring day only served to add to the delectable presentation of food and service. We shared a delicious bottle of white wine from Orvieto. Hubby started with an amazing (and large-portioned) smoked swordfish and smoked salmon thinly sliced on a lovely serving of... More
