We arrived late about 40 minutes before they closed. We were the only people in the restaurant. Staff was very patient and provided excellent service. But the real treat was absolutely delicious Italian food all around. My Ovidio Special Pizza was the hands down favorite....More

Located in a small strip mall Shopping Center. Has great atmosphere in dining area and bar as well. Food is very consistent. A bit pricey but portions are ample and well prepared.

Delicious lasagna --a true winner. Loved it and will order it again. The salmon was ok but not to my taste and the creamed pasta was too thick and not to my taste. The service was fine and attentive.

Husband and I returned here after a 6 year hiatus and were pleased that: the service is still warm and friendly; the bruschetta just as we remembered; food scrumptious. We shared the eggplant Parmesan, which was plenty, with a cup of minestrone each. Nice interior...More

I have been going to Ovidio [the sign outside says "Ovidio," not "Ovidio's"] since they opened in the late 1980's. I have always considered them to have the best Italian food I have eaten anywhere, other than, perhaps, Italy. What is interesting is that most...More
