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!
We were allowed a peep in the kitchen:
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).
While the pizza’s were in the oven, we enjoyed our antipasti with a beer from the tap:
And this was the result: buon appetito!
