This is a real Italian restaurant. Service is well paced but relaxed. Salads are very good, dressings are excellent. Never been disappointed with anything on the menu. Decent wine selection. Just a very nice place to relax and enjoy a great meal.

Looked at the menu and seen $38.00 for a filet. Thinking that for that money it would be a nice portion. WRONG! 5 to 6 oz max. I don't mind paying at all but i do except to get what I'm paying for. This was a @20.00 meal at the best.

I've been back a couple times since my original 2010 review, and I'm happy to say it's just as good, if not better. They recently finished an upgrade to the outdoor courtyard, but I ate indoors. Noticed they serve up until almost the last minute before closing time, but call ahead to verify; I'd still suggest reservations if you're traveling... More

Ottaviani's is one of the few restaurants that we return to over and over. Every meal is flavorful, delivered warm by a very friendly and efficient staff. Atmosphere is a little old world and the music they have on is always relaxing and enjoyable...think Frank Sinatra. The before dinner fresh, warm bread they deliver to the table is to die... More

We treated ourselves to a dinner out on our first night in Cumberland. Dress is casual but food is first class.

Great find, right off Baltimore St. Authentic Italian. The Abrusso chicken was delicious! Our server Molly was the best!

Without question, Ottaviani is the BEST Italian restaurant we've ever experienced outside of Italy. We arrived a bit before our reservation time and a gentleman who was clearing plates asked us to have a seat outside and took our drink order. He brought the drinks promptly and they were perfect. Our wait was short and the Hostess seated us at... More

I went in on the night the hotel dining room was closed. With a good size crowd the service was good and food was good.
