    Otto needs to clean house

    I ate there a few weeks ago and will definitely not go back. Everyone we encountered was rude. Service was exceptionally slow, and that was AFTER we waited nearly an hour and a half to get seated. There is no need to even mention the pizza or gelato. Even if the food were the best in the world, it wouldn't be worth enduring the insufferably rude, slow service!

    Not worth the wait

    The wait times are exceedingly long - whatever they tell you, add 30 minutes and then some. Yes, the food is cheap, but you 'pay for it' in the long wait times.

    Italian at Otto

    Once again I was disappointed with the service and food at this restaurant. The food is "peasant" Italian food. The atmosphere is loud and touristy. There are too many Italian restaurants in NY that locals should be supporting. I should have believed the two stars New York Times gave this place.

    Otto go again!

    My friend eats here all the time, so when i came to nyc from florida, she said i had to try it. we made a reservation for a sunday night at 10pm and were seated immediately (didn't think we would need the reservation, but it was packed, so i'm glad we made it). we started with green olives and caponata and the caponata had us wanting more. prosciutto was paper thin and nice size portion. server was helpful with the wine selection and selected a full bodied red that went well with everything. the pasta puttanesca was good with a very pronounced anchovy flavor. the special sicilian pizza was well balanced and reminded me of thin, crispy crusted pizza i had in italy. we ended with three flavors of gelato: pistachio, mint chocolate chip, and milk chocolate chip. it was creamy and pure; i ended up getting a pint of the pistachio to go. i've been to babbo and lupa, and the value of the food at otto is well-worth it.

    Love it!

    This place is just great. I've been here a few times - had pizza and pasta - perfect each time. Don't forget the amazing wine list and the delicious gelato. The seafood antipasti are just perfect. If you're into thicker crusts and "americanized" pizza, you probably don't want to come here. Pastas are very original, don't ask them to substitute, because they're perfect the way they are. Mmmm, maybe I should order from them now!

    Just like in Italy

    I recently went to Otto after my friends raved about the pizza and gelato. They were right. The margherita pizza is ultra thin with incredible tomato sauce and just the right amount of mozzarella and basil. And the olive oil gelato..simply amazing. The food reminded me of the way they make it in Italy, simple and delicious. Beware of the drinks, however. There is an impressive wine list, but an iced tea is $3.50! Service is decent but not amazing. All in all, Otto is a great restaurant!

    Average pizza, great gelato

    I agree with most of the reviews here. We had four different kinds of Pizza. The crust was just average by New York City standards. Of course it is much much better than the pizzas at the kitschy chain CPK stores, but we shouldn't compare real fruit to wax fruit. The Gelato is definitely great: Unique flavors which surprised my palate. So if you're thinking of pizza at a franchise chain store, come here instead. If you just want great NYC pizza, try any of the many coal oven places around.
