    Italian excellence

    Otto provides its patrons with fantastic food at extraordinarily reasonable prices. Any dissenters must frequent the olive garden; if you need reassurance, walk 5 minutes to check the prices at Mr. Batali's crown jewel, Babbo. The service allows you to enjoy the food, and there is not a weak spot in the menu. Otto has the one characteristic that is an automatic signal of a great restaurant: order something you don't like or typically avoid, and it will be fantastic.

    Disappointing

    We waited 2 1/2 hours for a table. Even when we did get seated, it was because we made our presence felt in desperation. The only mitigating factor was the two excellent bottles of wine we drank while waiting...standing room only. It was the first warm Friday night and absolutely packed. We had been told the wait would be one hour, which in that section of NY is fairly standard. Once seated, with apologies and a promise of "our very best server" we ordered some small plates and a pizza. The food was good, but not special, and it's obvious this restaurant is all about the wine, the food a mere accompaniment. One page of food and about five of wine! An excellent wine selection though. I did have the most delicious olive oil for dipping (we had to ask for it) that I have ever tasted. All in all a very meciocre and rather disappointing dining experience.

    Great Pizza Good Prices-NYC style

    If you are not from NYC maybe it doesn't seem like a good deal - like the prior review entitled "Overpriced, small portions" by mrsmaytag. I don't know what kind of fat bottom portions you are expecting - But that's NYC - take it or leave it. Pizza was terrific, atmosphere awesome, food was great and I found the portions to be perfect - this is not the olive garden ...anyone who goes to Otto is looking for good food NOT free or cheap food.

    Overpriced, small portions

    Tiny portions in an Italian Restaurant? Prices seem good till you see what they serve you. The food at Otto's is ok, but the crowds there would have you thinking they're giving food away! Prepared to be disappointed if you're there for the food!

    Children!

    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...

    Thank you Mario!

    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!

    Great salads

    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.
