OK, I have a daughter so I understand taking children out, but this was insane. I was so excited to try this place (great atmosphere, great wine list, food looked great) but we had to leave because it was like an Italian McDonalds. Seriously, wall to wall LOUD children...which was strange since the menu boasts olives, prosciutto and great wine. Perhaps if we go later in the night it will be different, but I was let down...

My dinner at Otto was perfect...the waiter's recommendations, the delicious food, the cool atmosphere! Do not miss the olive oil gelato with blood oranges, even if you NEVER eat dessert or think fruit doesn't qualify! I want to go back NOW!

I'm especially partial to the arugala salad, it's classic but they've done something to make it delicious. The pizza is good, without overdoing the toppings. Great wine list. I especially like the warm, woodsy decor... it's great for a cold winter night. Haven't tried the pasta yet, but I haven't heard good things about it.

Waiting 45 minutes for a table on a Wednesday night was a little daunting, but this place was worth the wait. 4 dishes and a bottle of wine for under $70 in Manhattan! Try the Baba A Rum dessert - Delicious.

This is a great and, for NYC, inexpensive place for good Italian food (predominantly pizza) and excellent Italian wine.The wine list is outstanding, with probably thirty wines available by the quartino (1/3 of a bottle). The assorted seafood antipasto is outstanding, as are the vegetable dishes, and the pizzas are very good - thin crust and light on the toppings but delicious. The servers are quick and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend it. Eating at the bar is also nice if you can get a seat.

Too avoid a long wait, try going for lunch. The caprese is amazing and the offerings reminded me of Rome. Don't forget to leave room for Gelato...HEAVENLY! Tip: order a sample of two or three gelati instead of just one - plenty to share. The atmosphere is great, and the wine list is beyond extensive. I can't wait to go back again!
