    Oh my god - the gelato!

    Come here for the gelato alone. 5 stars for that. Great experience. I haven't yet tried all of the flavors, but some outstanding unique ones are olive oil (very fruitty) and ricotta (went from lemony at the start to ricotta-y at the end) You can get up to 3 flavors for $7. Don't miss it. The thincrust pizza while better than your standard NY slice, is ok. I've definitely had better at a few other great restaurants. Grilled vegetables are pefect. Fresh and grilled just right, clean and simple. I've been for lunch on the weekend and dinner on a weekend. Totally different atmosphere. Service was excellent at lunch, dinner felt a bit rushed, waiters too eager to snap up plates as soon as you let go of your fork. Lots of tables, big space. Extensive wine list.

    Great Little Find!

    This place was great! I went on a friend's recommendation on a Saturday night and was pleasantly surprised. The cheese plate and desserts are by far the best food items on the menu. Definitely go for those - the pastas I also found as very good and also unique. I disagree with the people who said portions were small. They weren't as big as you get at some chain restaurants, but certainly ample for a nice sized dinner. Some of my friends didn't even finish their dishes. The waitress was very helpful and friendly, she recommended a good, moderately priced bottle of wine. She also was really helpful with the cheese plate. It was a Saturday night and we had a reservation and only waited five minutes to sit down. I do agree with what the other woman was saying about atmosphere, however, there were a remarkable number of children, even at a late seating on a Saturday. Overall, I would DEFINITELY recommend Otto and will be going back many times!

    Skip the Savories _ Go for Dessert

    I've eaten at OTTO several times now. Don't bother going for the food - sure the appetizers are great. The pizza is ok and the pasta mediocre. But the dessert - -the dessert is PHENOMENAL. I can't believe more hasn't been written about it. The combinations are surprising and supreme. Bravo!

    Love it

    I am always looking forward to go to Otto. I adore their cheese to take as a starter (Coach triple cream and the Gorgonzola are amazing). I never know what to get as wine as I am not an italian wine expert, so we always stick to the Zeni 2001 (that we picked randomly once) and we love it. Only bad thing: always so noisy and crowed....

    Wonderful!

    I love Otto. The pizzas are innovative and delicious (great thin crust) and there are even cheeseless pizzas for those who don't like cheese. The gelato is to die for, the best I've ever had. The wine list is SO extensive and they give you a glass and a half, instead of the standard glass they give you at most restaurants. The wait staff was terrific and so helpful. This is a great place!

    Sommelier can improve

    We had a great time at Otto with my friends to celebrate my birthday. The food was fine, but not fantastic. The waitress did a fair job. The sommelier was did not do a great job. The wines he recommended were overpriced and quite dull. I know quite a bit about wine, I drink a glass or two almost everyday, from various countries and in a nice range of prices. Since Otto has such an extensive wine list, and given the size of our group, I thought it would be best to defer to the recommendations of the sommelier. Wrong.
