Great Dinner

So tasty. We stopped here for dinner during a long drive to D.C. We had the pear risotto and the abruzzo chicken. We switched off and ate half of each. Both dishes were outstanding. Tom Colicchio could learn a thing or two from how they cook their spinach. Fun atmosphere. Impeccable service. Clean... read more

This is great Italian Food. The red gravy is one of the best I have eaten. All the entrees are prepared right and the service matched the food. Without a doubt when we are in the area we eat here.

Came by chance, will return anytime. The food was excellent and the service was too. The difference between Ottaviani's and other good Italian restaurants was that one could feel that the staff enjoyed what they were doing. Well done; keep it up.

We visit Ristorante Ottaviani about once a year when we travel to Western Maryland. The food is always delicious and the service is always friendly. Our recent visit did not disappoint. We started with the mussels appetizer with red sauce. We asked for extra bread for dipping in the sauce. The mussels were tender and the red sauce is the... More

I wrote a review back in May 2015 that was not complimentary due to the slow service - I tried them again and it was terrific!! It was super busy and I could only get a seat at the bar but Jeff the bartender was outstanding. Quick to fill up my empty water glass before I asked!! Bread & oil... More

We came here for dinner without reservations and had an excellent meal and experience. The food was delicious, with large portions and reasonable prices. Every staff member who walked by checked to make sure things were good and to see if we needed anything. We will definitely come here again next time we're in town!

Real Italian restaurant. Many of the recipes were brought by grandma from the old country. The menu is limited just to insure quality. The menu is changed often to tailor to local produce, freshness and the best ingredients. Nothing frozen or canned here. The serving staff are professional and make you feel that you are family. I highly recommend this... More
