Ovidio's Italian Restaurant features a relaxed atmosphere for enjoying Italian favorites. The family-owned eatery serves lunch and dinner prepared with authentic ingredients, the same way its been done since 1979. Stop in and discover the flavors of fresh ingredients paired with generous portions that are always satisfying.

Ovidio's Italian Restaurant serves a variety of antipasti options, including bruschetta, mozzarella caprese, calamari fritti, steamed clams and prosciutto con melon. The menu includes insalate and zuppe offerings, along with Franco's specialty pizzas and calzones, which feature homemade dough and meats, vegetables and seafood for toppings and fillings. The signature pastas at Ovidio's Italian Restaurant are always favorites, such as the vermicelli aglio e olio, capellini al basil and bucatini carbonara. There are also traditional favorites like gnocchi, lasagna, cannelloni and eggplant parmigiana.

This place is an amazing place to eat Italian food! The service is amazing, they really take the time to genuinely ask how you are and how your food is. Everything on the menu is amazing! You can not go wrong here!

We love going to Ovideos. Rocco, the owner, always makes us feel welcome. The food as always was great. We really enjoyed your two dinners for 30 dollars special. Great meal!

As always, food was good. I had to get the waiters attention to ask for fresh ground pepper on my salad. It's a hit and miss receiving it. Table was small for 3 adults.

Dinner was very good. There were 3 of us and we each had some different. The veal marsala was tender in a nice semi-sweet sauce. The tortelloni with proscuitto was in a white cream sauce and the proscuitto was not salty, very good. The Scampi alla Franco was fresh and tender and flavorful. All around very good meal.

This is my second time coming here and I am in love with this place! Food is amazing! Good quality seating and tables. GREAT service. There is nothing that could have made my experience better. This was best! Even their bathroom is high quality, fully stocked with needed essentials and very clean. Anytime I have out of town first come to visit, I will take them here. Thank you Ovidios!

Very busy given the weekend right after Valentine's, but the wait staff and kitchen as always were efficient and on their game. Food was spectacular. Had the veal marsala and chicken spezattino (sp?) Both were excellent. Ovidio remains a true gem in Fresno.

We had forgotten about Ovidio's until a cousin recently held a small dinner there. We won't forget them again! Fresh pasta, fresh ingredients, all paired together perfectly. The soft bread served at the beginning of the meal is too tempting to pass up. You won't be able to stop with just one piece! Love the menu selection and there is something for everyone.
