What a great idea: A very good fish restaurant in the middle of Umbria. The young owners are passionate about food and the propose an inventive and very tasty cuisine - so tasty that we went there twice in a short period of time. Yummy appetizer with a anchovy smoked by the owner himself, quickly seared tuna on a pistaccio cream with desiccated raspberries, seared tuna and foie gras on a wine reduction, fish soup cooked in a cartoccio (my girlfriend loved it, had it twice), good ice cream, chocolate threefold (tris di cioccolato), crème brulée etc.. The only thing i didn't like was the pasta (the sauce was too sweet, almost like Ketchup).
The Rosé Prosecco was good too.
Carry on with the good work!
Bevagna is a cute little old city.

Friendly staff. Food is the best in Umbria. And I like the setting and the pictures. From Anoush (nearly 5 yrs)

This was totally accidental as we were simply trying to break from grilled meat that is the cornerstone of Umbrian cuisine. In a what the h... moment, we stopped by this small and aesthetic place hidden in plain sight.on a small through street.

Lovely very very reasonably priced and on par with Michelin-y places we have enjoyed on either coast. Fine antipasti: stuffed calamaretti and tuna carpaccio con lampone (raspberry drizzle) Fine primi: Spaghettini con vongole verace Excellent, fresh and perfectly cooked secondi: a beautiful spigola for two , with perfectly prepared vegetables.

I hate to tell you about this place because there are not many tables and certainly no place specializing in fish for a two hour drive from this point

My wife Karen, LOVES seafood and I'm somewhat indifferent about it...until we had an afternoon meal at Ottavi Mare. This restaurant is absolutely wonderful. We have always enjoyed eating at small chef owned eateries and his one has a very professional man and wife team. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and had a chance to also meet their daughter as she ran into the kitchen looking for her "Oma". We fell in love with this place. The restaurant decor is very elegant and tasteful but not over done. Wine was delicious and the food outstanding! In fact, it was better than that. My grilled seafood mix was superb: cooked to perfection. While I didn't try it, Karen's seafood soup was worth taking a picture of and most important, she loved every bite. This will not be our last trip to Bevagna and we plan to return for more wonderful seafood prepared perfectly at Ottavi Mare.

We have been in Umbria for several days, and wanted a lighter fare and a change of pace from traditional Umbrian food. Based on TA reviews we went here and WOW! Only two special "fish of the day," but upon hearing that the waiter went to the market (probably Perugia???) that morning and chose the fish we said ok. It was the freshest Rombo (turbot) I think that I have ever had, including 5 years living in Milano where fish was king. Tremendous. Flavors of the accompaniments of vegetables were also delicious.

Our starter of tuna carpaccio (actually braised tuna sliced thinly) was excellent, the wine list was great and included many non Umbrian varieties, and the trio of sorbetti (grapefruit, mango and limone) was excellent.

Highly recommended - go with the house choice of fish.
