I have traveled "over" Cumberland many times. But this was the second time that I exited Rt 68 to eat in the downtown area. The restaurant was inviting, the staff friendly. The fresh bread with olive oil and balsalmic vinegar was delightful. I had the salmon with garlic pasta. The fish was delicious, the pasta bland. Fortunately, I could add... More

I was so excited to try this place as it has such fabulous reviews. However, I didn't think it was as amazing as others had stated. I got the Frutti di mare and the seafood in it was cooked perfectly. However, the sauce was not as flavorful as I had hoped and it was drowned in sauce. I lived in... More

I've been to Ristorante Ottavianis before but now I think it's time to leave a review! We started with a very good bottle of wine and I can honestly say the salad served before dinner was the best restaurant salad I've eaten. At least for my taste. All the lettuce was fresh. Not a soggy or brown piece to be... More

I've been three times in this restaurant and every time I'm amazed of how good this Italian restaurant is, in a city you wouldn't expect something of this quality. A waking distance from the Cumberland Marriott, this a good option when traveling to / from Pittsburgh to DC.

We usually go out with our kids, but had a sitter for the night and opted to try Ottaviani's for dinner, having only been there for drinks before. The waitstaff was very attentive and helpful, even though we were the only table sitting in the outside area for most of our visit. Outside seating has recently been rehabbed, and was... More

Elegant atmosphere, beautiful dishes & polite staff. Many of their dishes are locally sourced. Half of their menu changes regularly and it's always amazing. Best place to eat for dinner in the area!

We were staying at the Rocky Gap Casino and went to Cumberland for a Saturday evening dinner. The restaurant is only a 10 minute drive and parking was easy. Three couples went. We were greeted by a friendly staff and seated immediately. We had reservations. The staff was quick with bread and wine orders. The wine list was nice and... More

Downtown Cumberland was quiet when we were there in early November. Limited parking on a narrow street. Nothing seemed to be open, but this busy Italian restaurant. We arrived almost 20 min. early for our dinner reservation, but with a smile we were told that it wasn't a problem, our table was ready. My mom was using her rollator but... More

This Sunday at 4pm, for the second time, we arrived during the hours they listed on this website that they were open but they were closed. At least when a staff member saw a crowd forming at the door she came outside to turn the customers away and let us know that the hours had changed without notice.
