We were attracted to the Italian flag flying out front on a side street, off the pedestrian mall. On a cold, Thursday night, the restaurant was doing a fine business and the host was very accommodating on our table choice. There are classic Italian dishes on the menu. For some of the selection, there is an option for half portion.... More

I have dined at several fine Italian restaurants in Baltimore's little Italy and by far my recent meal at Ottaviana's was the best I have ever had to... More

My husband and I were in Cumberland for a conference and this restaurant was "highly" recommended to us. It is located in downtown Cumberland and before you enter you see the American & Italian flags gracing the entrance to the restaurant. It was like walking back in time. Lace valanced curtains hung from the bay window facing the people outside.... More

If you weren't expecting fine Italian food in an old railroad city, you're in for a nice surprise. The best dishes we had were the Pasta Fagoli (like pasta and bean soup with delicate flavors and hints of herbs) and the Frutti di Mare (seafood sauteed in white wine with a tasty red sauce over linguini) - photo. The Roasted... More

My wife and I were looking for a nice place to celebrate our anniversary. Trying to find where the restaurant was difficult for an out of towner. No data on the smart phones was no help.
