In Passignano sul Trasimeno (Perugia) near the exit of Torricella is the restaurant pizzeria “Il Gabbiano”, which means the gull. This is a very easy stop on your way from Perugia to Siena or to end a day at Lake Trasimeno. The pizzeria is part of a family run hotel and restaurant with pool and tennis court. One can taste typical Umbrian dishes and the pizza’s are very tasty and thin. During the summer they have a spacious terrace outside and for children there is a small playing field. We were here last Friday together with many Italians: a good sign!
These were the pizza’s prepared for us: quattro formaggi (4 cheeses), margherita (traditional pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil) and perugina (with the typical Umbrian sausage).
And this was the result: buon appetito!
