We're visiting Cumberland from DC, and we loved this place. It was cold outside, but warm and cozy inside. There was even live piano, AND he took requests, and he even played Gershwin. Awesome.

Previous reviews and a #2 TripAdvisor rating brought us to this wonderful restaurant when visiting Cumberland to take in its history. The food, wine and desert was top shelve and reasonably priced, plus a wonderful and romantic atmosphere made for a most enjoyable dinner for my wife and I. It was exactly what we had hoped for and expected!

We get to Cumberland twice a year. Always enjoy Ristorante Ottaviani for the high quality of their food. Our most recent visit was with two other couples -- both who also wanted to return to the restaurant following earlier visits! Sure, sometimes the kitchen can get a tiny bit behind, but what they produce is exceptional. Our only quibble with the restaurant is their wine program, especially selection by the glass is lacking. Wine needs to meet the quality of their very fine food. Appetizers and desserts are as good as the entrees. Overall a must visit dining spot in Cumberland. We'll be back again and again.

My husband and I came for our 20th anniversary. When we made a reservation they prepared a special table for us and brought us complementary champagne upon arrival.
Being from the DC area we are spoiled with all the amazing restaurants We can choose from.
Ristorante Ottaviani outshined them all. For our appetizer we ordered the Carpaccio. It was amazing with the bread and olive oil.
For dinner we ordered Civitella Pasta. It was pasta and asparagus with three mushroom and white truffle sauce. Served with the chianti, it was amazing.
My husband ordered the chicken Abruzzo. It was Gorgonzola crusted chicken breast served with pasta over a bed of spinach and mushrooms soaked in balsamic vinegar.
We highly suggest you stop in here next time you're passing through Cumberland.
