    Love this place!

    I've been to Otto's several times and I have never been disappointed despite the negative reviews I have seen here. Their wine list is outstanding, the food is great, and the gelato is fantastic. It is true that there is generally a wait for a table but the bar is a perfect place for drinks before dinner and you can order appetizers there as well.

    Better Italian restaurants out there

    Although I enjoyed my meal at Otto, there are many better valued Italian restuarants in the city. The food is decent, but not particularly astounding. However, the cheese platter is very good. The restuarant is usually very crowded and noisy.

    Wonderful!

    I don't get the so-so and negative reviews, feel like they must have eaten in a completely different restaurant..I dine in some very good restaurants around the country, and I'm telling you, this is a GEM! The pizza was divine, the "salumi" on the pizza was house made and absolutely delicious! The side of broccoli and peccorino was perfect. The gelato and biscotti is the BEST I have ever tasted...What's there not to love?

    Pizza average, gelato a TRILLION stars

    the pizza here at otto is nothing to write home about. that being said...the gelato at otto is not, not, not NOT under ANY circumstances to be missed.oh my!! the texture--so smooth and rich! the flavors! unrivaled by anyone in NYC. olive oil and avocado are insanely good... especially if you get a bit of the basil lime syrup on the latter. UNREAL. pistachio and hazelnut...ooooo-eeee! and grapefruit sorbet with a dash of alcohol on top..perfect palate cleanser. chocolate, hazelnut, blackberry....they are all so good. just. go. now.

    Super Cool

    OK, the train-station-style reservation system is the most creative thing I've seen in a restaurant. I hate to say it, but it almost makes waiting for a table fun. But was it worth the long wait... We went in w/o a reservation and was told the wait was 2 hours. We knew this coming in, so hanging out in the bar was no problem. No pasta or pizza at the bar, so we ordered a few antipasti items including the cheeses and olives. It was great sharing a bar table with other patrons while discussing our antipasti and wine selections. The honey and black truffle cheese condiment had an unbelievable fusion of woodsy and sweet flavors. Who thinks of this? Once seated (our destination was Tivoli), the waitress was somewhat rushed, but the pizzas were great. And the gelato to cap it off was creamy and delightful. I'll be back in a few weeks to entertain some friends.

    A "real" review

    It was ok..not to be snobbish because i am not a critic,writer and/or chef but i love to dine and i appreciate good food and good service. That being said. The atmosphere was fun, busy and noisy. The staff was almost non existent and not very helpful considering the "non-traditional" style menu. It is tapas style. Which is fine but... anyway, the food was good. I think the only way to enjoy this type of menu and atmosphere is with a noisy group of good friends:)

    Ohhhh... Otto

    Love love love otto. The staff is so gracious and knowledgable. The sommelier is top notch. What every restaurant should aim to be. The atmoshere is close to perfection of what a pizza restaurant should be... it's dark, it's loud, it's comfortable, it's fun. The pizzas are very creative, though crusts don't hold a candle to franny's, or lil' frankies or even gonzo for that matter. But it somehow all works together splendidly. Don't get me wrong, the pizzas are great, and everything else in the restaurant more than makes up for the above-average-below superior-crusts. Highly recommended.
