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

I did the C&O by myself but met a friend in Cumberland to do the GAP with me. My trip organizer had made arrangements for us to dine at Ristorante Ottaviani and we were not disappointed. The ambiance is wonderful and the food and service were excellent. Our waitress was a family member of the family that owns the restaurant... More

Is this Cumberland or Italy? Everything was top notch !!! The food was amazing, the staff was engaging and the Tony has a true passion for his art --the art of making fresh and delicious entrees with a staff that treats you like a friend.

Excellent service, ambiance, food choices and delicious food. We enjoyed the Branzi no (a Mediterranean bass, if you like bass you'll like it) beautifully oven roasted with great veggies and ravaioli with oil n garlic sauce. Reasonable prices for the quantity and quality of food. There are half menu items available for some dishes. We will return. Thanks for a... More

The four of us were all extremely pleased with our path meals at this gem. We sat outside in a nice courtyard, listened to a live musician, watch the people come and go from a 'wine tasting and Hors D'oeuvres. A very pleasant night and a great dinner.

My son was in town for a visit and we wanted to go out to dinner. He suggested Ristorante Ottaviani -- what a great choice. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. The waiters were very helpful and friendly. The wine they suggested was sooo good. Can't wait to go back.

We went with friends to celebrate a birthday and once again had a wonderful evening. We were fortunate to have a nice evening and dined outdoors. I prefer that when possible as the main seating area can be a bit noisy.
