    I am a HUGE fan of Ottavio. The food is immaculately prepared, the ingredients are upheld to the highest of standards, and it’s a super fun and genuine and home-y feel.

    I’ve heard nothing but good things about this place. It’s on my list.

    • Indeed, an Italian guy who manages an Italian restaurant in SF told me this place is the real deal. One pasta dish I had was probably the best I’ve ever had. Can’t remember the name though. Thanks.

    We have gone several times, and really like it. Having visited Italy, I can say that this is the real deal. The chef and his wife are so nice. A far cry from the French bistro that was there before. If you ever want a laugh, read my review of the French bistro on my yelp pages. The owner Chef of the bistro was so arrogant when he commented back. One of the waiters at Ottavio was a former waiter at Le Bistro, and he had a few stories to tell!


    • Wow, I looked over the reviews and the owner’s replies. I don’t think I’ve seen something like that before on Yelp. Incredible! No wonder why it closed. Thanks for pointing that out.
