Italian
You’ve never tasted Italian food like this before. Pasta made by hand every morning; fruits and vegetables sourced from a local farmer - just for us; fresh fish flown in daily and our meats aged to mouth-watering perfection. We have taken old school Italian and added a modern twist.

Had the Veal Parmesan . Great sauce, very large portion. Only ate 1/2. Prices are high but good quality. Chianti house wine had a great flavor.

I'm only in the area a couple of times a year and this is by far one of the best meals I've had in years.

Everything was delicious with the exception of the brownie pecan dessert. The brownie was an inconsistent texture, tasteless and way overpriced. The nuts were piled on too much. Even the ice cream could not save this train wreck of a dessert. Main course was a generous portion, very hot and cooked near perfect. Wine was delicious and the calamari is so fresh and meaty, you could order it alone for a meal. Wasn’t crazy about the sauce. Our waitress was very nice. Wished we could have seen a lot more of her.

I just loved the veal chop. It was amazing and our guests thought so too. This is one of our favorite places to go. Enjoy for yourself!

We were seated as soon as we walked in the door and the service was quick and efficient the entire time! I wouldn’t listen to the reviews about the service being slow or inattentive. Every restaurant has their bad days, but you can tell they are trying very hard. We got our food very fast and it was all hot and delicious. It is a little pricey, but everyone had leftovers. Definitely give it a try if you are on the fence!

This was our second visit with a family of four. The bread was warm out of the oven, zucchini appetizer was very good and each of our dinners were so delicious. Unfortunately we were so full didn't get dessert. I consider this a hidden gem we happened upon one day. The restaurant has a rustic appeal and very cozy. Service was outstanding as well. Will definitely recommend and be back soon!

The food & service were amazing. We dined early which led to being seated near numerous families with loud children. The arrangement of the tables makes it difficult for patrons with mobility issues to move about.

First time visiting Ottimo. Four of us dined here. 7pm on Saturday night. Made reservations night before. Seated promptly. Waitress not overly friendly. Place was very busy a this time so I could understand a certain stress level. Food was very tasty and prices were not unreasonable. They have an extensive wine list, however the bottle price mark-up was higher than most places. We ordered a $41 dollar bottle of Italian Barbera, and found it at Binny's for $10.99 (same vintage). $30 would have been more reasonable price. Overall the experience was enjoyable and the food didn't disappoint. Will definitely visit again. They also own Mama Maria's Taco restaurant next door. Both places are good.

We were greeted warmly and efficiently. Server came immediately. She was fabulous !!!! Drinks, dinner ( I had the Hake fish) and enjoyed every bite. We had an after dinner drink at the bar and that was lovely experience as well. All 4 in our party enjoyed your restaurant a lot... My hubby and I moved to Munster Indiana from Orland and will try to come back for sure, Again... our server was THE BEST..

This was my first time there. The waiter was sharp (bright) and attentive to us. The jumbo crab cake was very tasty and the beer was perfect (Peroni). Cup o tea and then we left. Had a very nice time. Was impressed with our pleasant waiter right away.

We really enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. The only complaint was that we wanted a round table for 8 & didn’t realize that the only one available was a high top. We are 8 seniors so it wasn’t as comfortable as we hoped. Some of the stools had no back and the bartender would not let us take some stools with backs from the bar. It was also hard to hear each other because of the noise level.
