Description: The "Passone" was born in 1953 as a simple family-run trattoria. After over 60 years the family is not changed, the Cogliati, and the atmosphere is remained friendly and informal as ever. But all the rest is evolved, creating a modern structure where you can taste ancient flavours and traditional and innovative dishes in a backdrop of natural beauty.

I was recommended this restaurant as I live nearby and wanted somewhere nice to take my brother on his visit from England. At first I was put off by the price as it's not cheap but it's really only the second courses that can be very expensive, and as we were only going for lunch and not a three course dinner I decided it was worth it.
And thank God I did! What a wonderful place! Everything about it is delightful; first of all the location, as you're in the middle of the countryside, and the views of the surrounding Brianza hills are wonderful. Second, the decor is beautiful; warm dusky- pink coloured walls, stuccoed ceilings and wooden balconies make you feel like you've stepped back in time. From the moment you enter reception and take the wide curving staircase up to the restaurant you know you are somewhere special.
And the food? Delicious! We just had a first course of pasta and then a dessert, and both were divine. I've lived in Italy a long time and it was simply the best dish of linguine with clams and prawns I have tasted. And it's one of those places where every dish being carried past you to another table looks equally tempting so you find yourself wanting to see what everyone else is having. And you know you'll have to go back again just to try something else from the menu.
The service was just right; friendly, polite and attentive but not intrusive and you can also get the menu in English which helps if your Italian isn't up to scratch.
And you can also buy wine by the half bottle which is a big advantage if you fancy more than one glass but can't run to a full bottle.
Yes, the second courses are a bit pricy and if you want fish or are vegetarian then it's maybe not the place for you as it's very meat-based. In fact the only fish option is sea-bass. But if you want to treat yourself to a really nice lunch in a beautiful setting with first class food, then you couldn't go anywhere better. And it's the perfect place for a special function if you fancy a really good blow out.
And after the meal ask to see the cantina. It's a really interesting old wine cellar, with dusty shelves full of wines from all over Italy. A great way to finish your visit.

Today I have visited "Passone restaurant" with my wife for our company Christmas luch.
The location is superb, you are in the middle of the heart of "parco del Curone" that seems a "little alpes".
The food is great, we had "tortelloni alla ricotta with aromatic erbs" and this dish was marvellous.
The main course that we ordered was "guines fouls", delicious!
At the end we have ordered an orange ice cream balls with balsamic vinegar.
The price is in line with the rates of this very good restaurant.

Thank you
Leonardo
