This family owned restaurant has been an Italian favorite of Camarillo for 30 years. The food and service are almost always good or better and the renovations keep the dining with a nice Mediterranean feel. Right off the Carmen exit at the 101 on Ventura boulevard makes it easy to find. Nice bar, too.

Consistently good food, and good, friendly service. Best pizza in Camarillo, particularly if you order it with thin crust. Caesar salad perfect accompanyment. Also pleasant, relaxing atmosphere. Dorothy, Camarillo

Great food, I love their seasoned rolls, and great service. We never feel rushed and the waiters/waitresses are always friendly.

My wife and I visited on a weeknight around 5 pm. The service was great, our waitress was quick and informed us about the menu and the specials. The food was a bit bland, my wife had the ravioli and I had the Chicken Parmigian, neither was bad but nothing we'll remember in a month or so. If we come... More

We had an awesome soup followed by great, well prepared main dishes. The selection was great, with unusual but very tasty entries. The service was excellent and attentive. An overall great evening.

Ottavio's provides fine dining for the Camarillo area. Very attentive service in a great setting, but the most important thing (of course) is the very delicious traditional Italian food. A number of delicious dishes. I have never been disappointed.

Every time my family goes to visit my son at CIU, we have to visit Ottavio's. Their pizza is so delicious, fresh thick crust and wonderful sauce and cheeses. Fresh bread of different varieties always offered. My favorite is squash ravioli and tortellini Emiliano which has sausage, artichoke, chicken, olives and sun dried tomatoes ( special order--not on menu). Their... More

We have been going to Ottavios for several years and always have a good meal. Pizza is very good as are entrees (try the butternut squash ravioli). Good place for romantic dining.

While the restaurant and service were pleasant enough, and the food moderately priced, the place was just OK. Nothing really out of the ordinary, and, unless you are nearby, I am not sure it would be really worth the effort to go out of your way to get there. I am first-generation Italian and have owned a house in Italy... More
