Been coming here for years, the food and the service have always been great! Seems to always have a wait but never that long. Their Eggplant Parmesan is the BOMB! As for those less than positive reviews, perhaps they are on a medication that dulls the taste buds?! If not, stick with your DiGiorno pizzas!

Camarillo has some great restaurants but this is not one of them. It's the sort of place a tour bus stops on the way to the outlet stores or they advertise they will give you a free meal for listening to how to save for retirement. Food is average to below. Over-cooked, limp pasta, with indifferent sauces.

Recently returned to the restaurant for their "early bird" special (4:00-6:00). Soup or salad, beverage, and dessert included. Really enjoyed the half and half (half ravioli, half spaghetti). The cappuccino ice cream was wonderful! We always try to stop here when we are in the area.

A long, long, time ago, in a far away town called Camarillo, Ottavio's restaurant used to be "authentic" Italian. The pasta was homemade, the sauce was paintstakingly made and bubbled on the huge gas stove, and the rolls and bread were made fresh daily. Today, there's a dumpster out back full of generic canned tomato sauce, three-day old Costco bread... More

It's been a while since we've gone here, but it was clean and had decent food, though we haven't been on that side of town to revisit.

This place has been around FOREVER and has cemented itself as a Ventura County gem. My husband loves their pizza and I love the spaghetti and meatballs with extra meat sauce.

Ottavio's has been around forever in a trade where that's rare, for a reason. It never disappoints. Service is excellent and friendly. Food is always very good. And it's charming.

I am not really fond of this restaurant. they have lunch buffet that has very limited selections. Service is slow and the food is good but it's not something I would say that I will be back or would recommend to others. If you ask me, the best Italian restaurant I have been to - and would definitely return, is... More

Ontario's has been a favorite of my family for many years. The food is great for adults and children. As my family has grown, take-out has become more convenient, especially with babies. Service is good, and orders are ready on time. It's a little pricey, but the quality is good.
