Oh my GOD! a restaurant that doesn't serve corporate farm beef and chicken.!

We went there for a friend's birthday and boy was it a disappointment! The food is very average. The menu is complicated, and they don't serve beef or chicken! How ridiculous is that! I was very disappointed. The service wasn't bad, we had a nice waitress who took care of us to compensate for the food. It also had a nice ambiance, nothing extraordinary though. The worst part is yet to come.. they didn't let us cut the birthday cake!

I've been here 2x's and each time, I've been disappointed by the pizza. It has a fairly bland crust and forgettable sauce. I was quite surprised because i'm a big fan of Lupa.

The hostesses were rude beyond belief and couldn't give an accurate estimate of wait time if their lives depended on it. After waiting for nearly 2 hours for a table (45 minutes more than we were told we would probably wait) a hostess rolled her eyes at me (!!!) when I asked how much longer the wait would be. Thank god for our friendly and knowledgeable server who offered totally relaxed yet professional service. Don't let the kids behind the host desk discourage you from trying this restaurant. Friendly service can be had!

The meatballs were weak. I ordered spaghetti and meatballs and it looked & tasted like Chef Boyardee. The 'special' of the evening was turkey meatballs and they were dry and somewhat bland. We had pizza at the table too - Patsy's is better.

Their mediocre menu was too greatly outshined by their extensive wine list. Not the restaurant to go if you are looking to be fed. I would say that it would be more of a snacking with the wine of your choice. The atmosphere athough nicely themed is overpowered by noisy techno beats in the background. Good for a bottle of wine and perhaps some formaggio but I won't be returning soon.

Last evening I took a group of 11 people to Otto for a celebratory dinner for a business associate. The group was in a jolly mood and promptly ordered $450 worth of wine and starters. As we were eating our mediocre appetizers a senior executive at our company arrived unexpectedly. We pulled up a chair for them and then began reviewing the menu to order additional food and wine to accommodate our guest. The manager then came over and rudely demanded our guest leave as they have a policy where parties of 12 must order a prixe fix. In an ill fated attempt to reason with the manager we offered the following suggestions: Cancel the food that had been ordered and go with the prixe fix Order more food and or wine to ensure a minimum cost per person of $45 (the cost of the Pix Fix) Guarantee a minimum total bill for the table and supplemental tip for the waiter for the inconvenience The manager rudely denied all of these options because of "policy" and demanded that the executive sit in the bar area. Horribly embarrassed the executive went to the bar area only to be told that she could not order anything to eat unless they were actually seated at the bar and naturally there were no seats available. Completely frustrated with the rude and unaccommodating service we asked for the check without finishing our meal and decided to go somewhere else. To add insult to injury when the check arrived with an 18% gratuity the manager first refused to remove it (I have never stiffed a waiter but after receiving such rude and unaccommodating service felt 10% would be more appropriate - especially since we were leaving without eating our meal which we were paying for) and then when we insisted the waiter threw the check at us from across the room. Celebrity chef or not, such service combined with mediocre food I would definitely not recommend this restaurant to my worst enemy.
