Went to Otto last night for the first time. The pizza was really average and the gelato and wine list were amazing (as someone mentioned below). The staff was nice but it was difficult to get our waitress's attention. There were children everywhere which is very good for young families but may not be for everyone.

I have been to Otto before and really enjoyed it about a year ago. This time I ordered and had it delivered. We ordered a bunch of the pizzas. It was cold, no toppings, and just flat out not appealing. I will not eat or order from them again.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
