Decidedly sub-mediocre to mediocre fare is what you'll find if you buy into the Mario hype and eat here. If this guy is an "Iron Chef", where do I sign up to challenge him? I've given Otto three chances to impress me, and ordered a broad range of dishes. Three strikes. Most disappointing of all are the pizzas. Blah.

We went here for a birthday party last night and have to say that this is a great place for that sort of thing. The waiting area/bar is all standing areas with long bar tables reminiscent of a train station in Europe. By the time you get to your table (which was a long wait, but I was too busy going through bottles of wine) you are already packing a full buzz and ready to eat. Parties of 11 or more have a prix fixe menu of antipasti, four pizzas and gelato for $40/person, not a bad deal. The pizzas were all good, but not great. The ice cream was unbelievable, try the olive oil flavor. The best part was the antipasti. Both the prosciutto and carpaccio were amazing, very good cuts of meat. I would recommend coming here with a bunch of friends expecting to get loaded on bottles of vino and loads of pizza and pasta.

Sorry for the repetition, but we waited at least 90 minutes past our reservation on a Friday night. If you are starving for Italian, look elsewhere. Dependable wine list. Plan to buy several bottles of wine, not only to fit in, but also to help manage the wait. Plan to leave hungry.

Otto is not your typical pizzeria or italian restaurant. It's just different. And it's great. The pasta is always a good choice, the pizzas are all very interesting. Their wine selection is great. And I've never been treated rudely there. The seafood antipasti and the salads are always a good idea to start off a lovely meal.

Despite the previous ratings of long wait times, i actually went during off hours when very few people were there. and still had to promt my waitress to 'speed things up'. the pizza was subpar - it mostly tasted dry and a heinz like tomatoe sauce. i had heard so much about this place. many other great italian places to frequent.

They don't honor reservations very well so you might as well order. I've waited 45 and 55 minutes past my reservation time the last two times I went. And they did nothing to compensate. Seeing your "train" (aka your table) on the schedule board is not worth the wait. Food is great so ordering makes more sense than trying to get in there if you like to eat when scheduled.

I thought the food was amazing and the wine selection was great. Everyone at my table loved it! The atmosphere is great for a group or a couple. I will definitely be going back and I highly recommend it.
