The Grilled shrimp on angel hair pasta are outstanding. Another favorite is the Friday Special: Garlic crusted Sea bass with spinach, is delicious and healthy. WE have been going to Ottavios 2 or more times a month for nearly 30 years, and have always enjoyed the experience.

In an era when good Italian food is getting harder and harder to find on a consistent basis, I always make OTTAVIO'S a stop on the way to, or from, the coast .. ..

Consistently delicious food from a family-run kitchen that is celebrating their 50th Anniversary!!

50 YEARS = GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME!!!

Thanks Ottavio's

Ottavios' is our go to place for Italian. Always a whole page of specials. The Salmon is always great. Lasagna is more than one person can eat. Kids meals are a good size and the environment is family friendly. When they're packed they're a little slow but that place is fairly big. If you're patient good things come. Parking becomes an issue during busy times but Real Estate is at a premium in Camarillo - you just deal with it. Stop in if your cruising down the 101 - you'll be glad you did.

The specials are always worth trying because they are always fresh and new, but the minestrone soup should not be missed! Sit in a larger room or one in the bar area for larger group dining or sit in a quieter room if it is "date night." The food is classic Italian and the portions make the price nice because there are almost always leftovers. Very special family-owned restaurant with a kind and friendly staff who are always happy to serve. It can be busy during the popular family dining times, but you can call ahead and make a reservation. It is a popular place for good reason so be prepared to wait awhile it you just drop in, but the atmosphere is nice even while waiting.

Atmosphere was nice but that was about it. Food was so-so and overpriced. I would have rather gone to Olive Garden for spaghetti.
