Food is good, authentic. Good wine list. Wait staff is friendly. It is a little small, so you may have to wait for a table. Good sized bar to wait by, though.

Friends and I stopped in for dinner and although it was very crowded, the food was great! Amongst the group we had a 8 hour braised pork, risotto and pasta - every dish was fantastic! The pork was amazing and a must have if you see it on the menu as a special! Well worth it! Portions are all a good size and well priced. Atmosphere is quaint and friendly. Service was great! Our waitress Danielle was great despite the crowds! Wine list was very good as well.

This restaurant has excellent Italian food at reasonable prices in a large but comfortable setting. Every bite of every item we tried was delicious. I highly recommend the large meatball with the Fontina cheese for the appetizer. The mornay style white cheese over the meat is a great contrast to the marinara underneath. Mixed all together, it is distinctive from other restaurants' meatball offerings.

Our entrees were a scallop special and the tilapia. Both were cooked to perfection, with a very light crisp on the outside with tender, hot meat in the middle. Ottimo does seafood very well. And, I have never had a meal that was served so hot before from start to finish, all of the dishes were hot hot, and stayed hot while they were on the plate. A small detail, but it sure beats food that gets cold quickly.

The reason it is not 5-star... the service was decent, but not outstanding. The server almost seemed shy, or not confident. Maybe it was an off-night. Nothing bad happened, the order was all correct. Service was done in a reasonable amount of time. Maybe the word I'm looking for is "detached".

Go for the food. Stay for the food. Go back again.
