Nice neighborhood restaurant with great food and very friendly staff, great service, nice atmosphere. I like the olive oil and balsamic vinegar at the tables. The foccacia gets you ready for the great entres. Owners seems genuinely concerned about the quality of the food and service.

Great menu, food and service. If you want something a little different than the usual Italian fare, try Ottavio's.

We ate at Ottavio's for three nights in a row and loved everything we ate. The service was excellent and the food was even better. The pizza scored rave reviews from all of our group who tried it and the pasta dishes are fabulous. Beware the salads - they are really good but HUGE!
