My wife and I went here for her birthday on a weekend getaway to Cumberland. It is located in a cute row house with vaulted paneled ceilings and a small outdoor eating area. The prices are reasonable for a restaurant in this area. Back in Baltimore at a restaurant of this caliber, each dish would be an extra $10 at... More

Excellent Italian cuisine, good number of menu selections and very tasty. Prices are reasonable, and a little on the low side for the quality. Although clearly the best of very few good dinner places in town, it could hold its own with places in much larger cities.

My husband and I went to Cumberland this past weekend as he is hiking the C&O Canal, and based on reviews, wound up having dinner at Ristorante Ottavani. We did something similar a couple of weeks ago in Frederick and ended up being disappointed, so I wasn't getting my hopes up this time. We didn't have a reservation so had... More

Good atmosphere, dim lighting, music, to enhance conversation with friends while enjoying your meal. On a tip from a friend, I tried the abruzzo chicken. Wow is all I can say. This will definitely be the meal I get when I return to Ristorante Ottaviani. We really enjoyed the olive oil and bread before the dinner too. Worth the price... More

We were told by "locals'" to go there, and it turned out to be superb. A relatively small menu of Italian fare but the food and wine could not have been better. Some dishes seemed overpriced but most were very reasonable. The quantities were enormous. I got two more meals from my doggie bag! The tomato sauce was extraordinary. I... More

The Ristorante Ottaviani has a wonderful atmosphere, is conveniently located in downtown Cumberland and the food is fantastic! The staff is very attentive and the service is great. The menu is a little pricey but it is well worth it.

Found and went to this place strictly because of Tripadvisor comments. Its in the old part of downtown but easy to get to. Service was outstanding, prompt, informative and friendly. We had the zuccnini fritters, which were recommended and excellent. My wife had the Chicken Abruzza, which she said was outstanding. I had the Scallop Alfredo and the scallops were... More

Always stop here for a meal when we are in town. Bread is fantastic, staff is very friendly. Salmon was very good.hubby thought his pasta dish was so-so. A bit pricey but we like it.

A wonderful meal in a quaint setting. The specials are worth a try as are the meatballs. We had a lovely meal outside, although in the future I'd make a reservation and eat inside. The ambulance of the courtyard left a bit to be desired. But the quality of the food as well as the service were quite good.
