My wife and I had not been to Ottavio's for a long time, but retained fond memories. We took the opportunity of finding their coupon in our Axxess magazine to go for lunch on a Thursday. We both chose their lunch buffet, which allowed us to sample their minestrone soup, chicken parmesan, pizzas and extensive salad bar. Everything was very... More

We had a large group reservation for a Saturday night. This was around 45-50 people. The bread is out of this world. The main dishes tasted very good. And our service was quite attentive.

The best authentic I have had in a long time... and having been a chef in 3 restaurants I can state this unequivocally. Highly recommended.

I normally get the early bird "Sausage & Peppers" dish. The dish has a ton of flavor, like most of their dinners. The service is great and the menu has a large selection for your taste.

A great place for a causal meal or a celebration. When asked, my parents always say they want their birthday or anniversary party at Ottavios. The food is consistently good with generous portions. My dad says they have the best Eggplant Parmesan he's ever had. I highly recommend Ottavios!

My wife grew up in Camarillo during the 80's. Whenever we go back to visit, We always have to go here. It brings back great memories for my wife. We had the deluxe pizza and it was great. The antipasto salad was tasty. A small is enough to feed 3 people.

It seems many times when I meet someone from outside of Camarillo they say "love Ottavios" and for good reason. Thank goodness this has replaced the constant reference to the long gone Camarillo Hospital. Other reviewers have have detailed the virtues of this classic restaurant suffice to say it doesn't rest on its laurels and strives hard to maintain its... More

Always busy and the reason will be obvious on your first visit. Large selection, something for the whole family. Our favorite place for morning feast and coffee.

This is you real Italian restaurant. Not a chain. Great Food, good service. We like to eat in the bar. I love their salads, and red sauce is excellent. Good choices for wine. Lots of parties and families. Great pizza.

Thank Nancy K
