One of Umbria’s best known fish restaurants, restaurant DA MASSIMO has been in business for over 25 years and has been awarded a long list of prizes and awards for its excellent cuisine and service.
Idyllically located on the shores of Lake Trasimeno, with a panoramic terrace overlooking the lake and the surrounding hills for dining out in the summer months, DA MASSIMO is a guarantee of quality, fresh produce in terms of fish and specialises in traditional Umbrian dishes using freshwater fish.
The restaurant’s secret has always been the simplicity of its dishes, in the firm belief that this is the best way to bring the most out of fresh and genuine ingredients. And all this at prices that are more than affordable!
“DA MASSIMO, the restaurant that has been bringing the sea to Umbria for the past 25 years ... what do you owe your success to? After all these years, what’s the secret?”
" ... the secret is the simplicity of our dishes. We believe this is the best way to highlight the natural taste of prime quality, fresh ingredients. Add to this our very reasonable prices and excellent service and ... "
Chef Massimo is a partner in the restaurant business along with his brother Maurizio and their respective wives, Emanuela and Chiara.
“Clearly seafood is a family passion, generously shared with the restaurant’s affectionate and long-standing clientele...”
“Absolutely,” confirms Massimo, “we are proud to have a long list of customers who have continued to come back regularly over the years, although particularly in summer we also have quite a few tourists who come on holiday to Lake Trasimene!”
“What are your ‘unmissable’ specialities, Massimo?”
"We offer a good deal of truly noteworthy dishes but out of all of them I would suggest our seafood appetizer made up of twelve different hot and cold elements. That has to be one of our most popular dishes of all time. Of the first courses I would suggest our cream of shrimp homemade ‘gnocchetti’ (one of our hallmark dishes), and as a second course our tasty grill of Mediterranean lobster, shrimps and fresh fish – all rigorously selected from the best fishmonger in the area.”
