    A disappointment

    Having read so much about this place I couldn't wait to try their food. Can you believe that at a Batali restaurant the pasta is undercooked? And the buffalo mozzarella on the pizza tasted like it had gone bad? Avoid the pasta with squash and bottarga: there is no bottarga in it and not only it looks unappetizing but it is poor tasting. Pasta cacio e pepe special of the day was far from the real thing. The only enjoyable thing was the wine, and the service was ok. I can't believe how Batali preaches on how to cook Italian, and he can't even teach the chef in one of his restaurant! I am Italian, and believe me, this is not the real thing.

    Not recommended for big groups

    I went here for a surprise b-day party and was unimpressed. The pizza is average at best . . . I had one piece of pizza, a taste of gelato and one piece of bread w/ some beans which came to $40! There was so little food at the table that I am floored that it would come to $520. Their group parties/fixed menus options seem to be not worth it.

    Best Gelato

    The other reviewers are right- this is the best gelato I have had in New York (except maybe Caio Bella). Amazing and delicious. The food is good- especially for the price. The atmosphere is fun. Make a reservation- they seem to get booked quickly.

    Great spot

    Yum! This place is a must try. The cheese plate is one of the better cheese plates I've had in the city and goes great w/ a plate of prosciutto. Wine lovers will be very pleased with the HUGE selection of wine. Pizza was good, but nothing to write home about. And you must save room for a gelato at the end.

    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!
