My friends and I ate dinner here based on a recommendation. We had a short wait since we did not make reservations. The food was delicious. 2 of us ordered Abruzzo Chicken. It was fabulous. The fresh linguini was wonderful. I didn't want to stop eating even though I was full. The others ordered the special of Eggplant and Italian... More

We ordered calamari as an appetizer. It along with the bread was truly wonderful. The salad was fresh and tasty and the main course..Pollo Abrusio was absolutely outstanding. We were very pleased with the food and the service. The atmosphere was charming.

My husband and I like to share and the waitress very graciously split everything evenly for us. We had the mussels, a salad and pasta with meatballs. Everything was great!

Excellent food, very close to authentic Italian cuisine; we are from Europe, tiramisu is excellent, friendly staff, I like the atmosphere and the music, outside seating, the place is always packed on weekends, would not expect to find such a place in Cumberland!

Located in western Maryland, this is a locally owned charming Italian eatery downtown. I have been there times and enjoyed each one while trying a different entrée each time. I was joined by the owners on all occasions checking up and how our table was doing. Of course they do that for everyone. The kitchen is located to the immediate... More

Stopped for dinner with my daughter while pedaling from Pittsburgh to DC. Had an incredible California red suggested by the owner. Will definitely return. Treated me as tho I was family. The total experience was first class. Fantastic appetizers and outstanding entrees.

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner here and it was a very good meal. The atmosphere was very old world. It is a small place but very nice. The service was very good. Our waiter (can't remember his name) was very well informed about all the meals. We had a very good time here and would eat here... More

This is the best restaurant in Cumberland, no doubts whatsoever. Ambiance is a 10/10, menu had tons of healthy and delicious options (and half portions!!!!!!!!), and our server Cassie was so nice and friendly. She knew everything about town and events going on during our weekend stay. I had the abruzzi chicken which was to die for. We live in... More

From the friendly greeting by our waiter Austin until we left the restaurant the total experience was first class. We discussed the menu with Austin and let him guide us in our ordering and we were not lead astray in any of the suggested items. We started with mussels in a white wine broth that had a healthy dose of... More

Got into town on Sunday and thought we were out of luck for a nice place to eat. Luckily Ottaviano's was open. Went back on Monday PM as well. All the meals were well prepared and the wine list was quite good. The portions were large and we inquired the second night about less pasta and the waitress was great... More
