My wife suggested to go out for dinner and invited another couple to join us. The service was great. Our waitress was very attentive to us and our friends daughter. The food and service was excellent and we will go back in the future and I would definitely recommend this place to other people we... read more

Our 3rd visit and yes, it was during the busy holiday time. 1- noise level extreme in every room. 2- worst personal pizza ever. Ordered it with shrimp. Had trouble locating shrimp. 3- husband's linguini over-cooked. Mushy. 4- lasagna was almost flat on the plate. Very over-cooked. 5- WHY is a bottle of Corona served to the table $6 and... More

We were in a bind and needed a pre-prepared menu of dishes for our family's Christmas Eve gathering. On the basis of simple research and reading reviews, we went to Ottavio's and ordered lasagna, salad, bread and other food items for the celebration. Wow, what a wonderful surprise. The lasagna, salad, bread, antipasta, et. al. were beyond our expectations. Although... More

It's always nice when you eat at a family owned restaurant, passed down the generations. I have eaten here since 1979 when Ottavio and Noella were starting out. Wonderful family, wonderful food. Hi Julie, you're doing a great job. We'll be back next week.

This is one of our favorite places to go for Italian food. An extensive menu to choose from and it has always been good no matter what we order. They have an early bird dinner that is slightly cheaper, but the same meal as the regular priced one. Generous portions and really yummy. I especially like the Lasagna, it's really... More

Nice place to eat if you have time for a leisurely lunch or dinner. Do not go there as a stop off on your way to LA. Not only will you wait for a table even when the restaurant is mostly empty, but the wait staff is hard to find. Still the food is great and prices about what you... More

This place is almost a Camarillo institution. Generally large portions, sort of open atmosphere. Not sure fancy but simply good food and reasonable price wise. Great place for families, not perfect if your goal is to impress. Overall I would recommend it.

My friend insisted on getting take-out pizza from here. It was about average price, but the quality was outstanding. I had never tasted a pizza with so much genuine flavor. I highly recommend it.

First time to Ottavio's for me, but it's an old fav for the hubs. He had the lasagna and said it was as good as it was 25 yrs ago. I had the gnocchi and, oh man, was it good! Portions are HUGE. Only reason to give a 4 was that the bread was only so-so. James waited on us... More
