It seems many times when I meet someone from outside of Camarillo they say "love Ottavios" and for good reason. Thank goodness this has replaced the constant reference to the long gone Camarillo Hospital. Other reviewers have have detailed the virtues of this classic restaurant suffice to say it doesn't rest on its laurels and strives hard to maintain its... More

Always busy and the reason will be obvious on your first visit. Large selection, something for the whole family. Our favorite place for morning feast and coffee.

This is you real Italian restaurant. Not a chain. Great Food, good service. We like to eat in the bar. I love their salads, and red sauce is excellent. Good choices for wine. Lots of parties and families. Great pizza.

What a wonderful place to celebrate with family and friends. The atmosphere is conducive to good conversation and relaxed celebration. Our party had about 30+, some ordered off the menu others enjoyed the buffet. No one left hungary or dissatisfied. Over heard a couple ladies comment: it was worth the drive, a drive I wouldn't mind making for such great... More

This used to be our favorite Italian Restaurant. We noticed a major change in the quality of the food and portion size in 2016. This change includes everything on the menu; from pizza to pasta to meat and seafood entrees. We became sick the following day (vomiting and/or diarrhea ) every time we ate at Ottavios. First, we thought it... More

We stopped on a whim for lunch after golf. It turns out they have a lunch buffet ($11.50) - salad bar (everything very fresh), pizza and 2 pasta dishes. The Alfredo on the penne was good (not heavy). I probably would not make a special trip, but would stop if in the area.

This restaurant's parking lot was full, so that's a good sign! We had reservations and were seated promptly. Our party ordered a variety of dishes - lasagna, chicken piccata, pizza, eggplant - and everything was delicious! The minestrone soup tasted wonderful and the bread was fresh. Service was excellent! Only question was why it took so long to get the... More

Had a simple take out dinner tonight. Hearty, tasty Minestrone soup. tomato based broth. Mediterranean salad was chock full of fresh vegetables and crisp salad. When I picked up my order there were people waiting to be seated, a good sign, This local favorite has been in business for 48 years, that also says something about the place.

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
