Never in my life I ate fish of the Trasimeno Lake. Until yesterday evening! My friends in Castiglione del Lago suggested eating the “Regina in Porchetta”, carp from the lake at the Restaurant A.Z. Vignaroli. The Regina in Porchetta is a typical dish from the Trasimeno area. I had to taste it! I was so curious. Unfortunately, at the restaurant they told me that you need to order the carp in advance. And not only for 1 person, but at least for a group. The carp of the lake is too big for one person only!
Arturo, the owner of the restaurant suggested as a starter a mix of fish antipasti and as a main course the perch fillet with lemon sauce and organic turnip. Yummie! It was so good, maybe a little bit too much, but I really enjoyed my dinner at the AZ Restaurant. I will go back for sure.
Arturo invited me to the restaurant to taste the home made fresh carp of the Trasimeno Lake. I am looking forward to it!
