Il Fischio del Merlo

Seafood Risotto

When we decided to spend our last day in Umbria at the Lago di Trasimeno, the Hub automatically opened his trusted Michelin Guide to find us a place to lunch in and chose Il Fischio del Merlo with its 2-cutlery rating. It proved to be an excellent choice and I am still reeling from the good choice of seafood dishes in the menu.

The restaurant is near Passignano but is situated a little further inland in a lovely farm setting. It has horses, lots of flora and a lovely pool. We ate out next to exotic cactuses and had a lovely meal of gratinated seafood, seafood risotto, lobster in hot sauce, grilled rombo (St Pierre) with zucchini purée...

Definitely worth stopping by. Wish I had space for the antipasti, they sounded great.

D, now that you mentioned it, I think I heard it calling for you too :-).

E, I think you'll love Umbria, it's really pretty.

Fleur, if you love seafood you should make a trip to Bretagne, I still daydream about the seafood there at times.

I know...there is still so much of France to explore esp the north. Now that you mention they have great seafood, I'm going to make it a priority.
