Enjoyed a dinner here on our last night of a road trip and was very pleased. They kept bringing the fresh bread with infused olive oil on the side. Yum! Mothers enjoyed linguine with sundried tomatoes. A very simple dish but nicely done. Kids enjoyed 1/2 Caesar salads with chicken and shrimp. The 1/2 salad was not as big as... More

I live in Philadelphia, spend half my time in New York City and I've been to Italy several times over the past decade. I've eaten at the best Italian places and this place ranks right up there among the best. What a find...I mean, in Cumberland, Maryland? Who would have thought that I'd sit down to a perfect Cesar salad....the... More

I thought I submitted this review after eating here several weeks ago but apparently it didn't get published. We stopped at this Ottaviani on our way to western Maryland. The food was excellent. I ordered a bolognese dish that was one of the best bolognese pastas that I have had. My wife also had pasta that was superb. Dylan, our... More

Great service and the food was very good. One of the best salad's we've ever eaten, anywhere. The weather was great and we ate outside. Very nice, relaxing and tasty evening.

We had a great dinner with friends we met on the GAP trail. Outstanding service. We had the civitella which was excellent... unique. The cucumber salad was good, but would have preferred yogurt to the sour cream in the dill dressing. The salad capresse was tasty, and the added watermelon was a refreshing addition...surprisingly good flavor combination...really.

Very pleasant dinner at the Ottaviani on a Saturday night in June, 2014. We started with a delicious salad Caprese, creatively done with chunks of watermelon. I ordered pasta Bolognese, which was amazingly delicious, and a glass of house Chianti; my wife ordered chicken abruzzo -- according to the waiter, the restaurant's signature dish because the family is from that...

We had a good dinner here, taking a break from all the bar/restaurants that predominate in this area. Both of our pasta dishes were solid, although her cacciatore with pork had very little of the latter. There were a couple of interesting wines on the menu, although the house wines by the glass are simply listed by the grape variety,... More

Really enjoyed our dinner. Great service, very good food, and nice atmosphere. Will definitely stop in again if in the area. Our server (Austin) was great (impeccable). Very attentive and accommodating, as was everyone who touched our table. The server assistant that evening was great too. I always appreciate it when the waitstaff treats children as guests and interacts with... More
