Ottavio offers a true Italian café with Illy Caffè espresso made on traditional manual espresso machines (there is a difference!) & locally roasted Café Fantastico brewed fresh. We have a creative selection of panini, salads, soups & mixed plates created daily from our wide selection of artisan cheeses & charcuterie in our delicatessen.
We make our own gelato with organic milk & local fruit...it is the best around. Our café & beautiful sunny terrazzo are licensed with local & imported wines by the glass as well as a selection of quality local, Italian & Belgian beers.
