Wonderful and Warm Place!

My husband and I had dinner here last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food is fabulous and the staff very kind, fun and welcoming - especially as we arrived later in the evening. Highly recommend this charming restaurant in an equally charming town!

My friend and I had business in the Cumberland area, so we stopped at the walking mall in town for an early dinner. We have a favorite spot for crab cakes, but the Baltimore Grill is closed on Sundays. We saw a sign that Ristorante Ottaviani was open, and having eaten there previously. knew we would not be disappointed. What... More

The food was good, solid Italian food. We had half portions of the chicken parmesean and it was good, not great, and plentiful. Now the Romano mixed greens salad, that was great! I had a lovely red wine, Montepluciano, which was recommended. But the star of the night was Cassie, our server who was also a manager. She was excellent,... More

Intimate,full of laughter and good food. A good date night restaurant, family celebration place or just feed me excellently please. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, maybe a little loud but have you been to an Italian family celebration. Staff is friendly, efficient and versed on the menu. I have no expertise on wines but am told the selection is... More

The atmosphere was inviting & comfortable. The service was timely, courteous, & considerate. The menu had things familiar & new. The food was delicious, the scallops were especially excellent! If you're looking for a place to enjoy a really good Italian meal, this is it!

The people at this establishment, I felt, were a little snooty. Meatballs had a nice flavor, but were tough. I enjoyed the bread with dipping oil.

Great dinner venue walking distance from downtown, near the western Maryland scenic railroad station. They do half portions for kids or adults that don't want a huge plate of pasta. The inside beautiful, but we dined outside. The fried calamari, pasta, and salads were all good. The service was exceptional and due for the week we didn't need a reservation.

I love this place. Not only is the food good, but the service is friendly and the atmosphere charming. The head chef is very talented, and in addition to the regular menu there is a full page of specials every day. Many of the ingredients are locally sourced, and everything is fresh and seasonal. I have no dietary restrictions but... More

This is a favorite restaurant destination for any special occasion, business entertaining, and especially on "date night." The Ottaviani family are the most gracious of hosts, the kitchen under chef Cristina accommodates my gluten and dairy free needs adjusting nearly anything on the menu, and Jeff at the bar usually recommends excellent Italian wines to pair with the meal. Most... More

I have dined here many times and cannot say enough good things about this pace. I am a vegan and they go out of their way to provide an excellent vegan meal for me. The food and service are always excellent and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.
