Diner Reviews
  • "Quick, simple and pretty good. Affable staff--good for quick meals. Some things much better than others."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "I really like the food here and the service is always great. This was my first time for dinner and I was surprised how much it felt like a suburban chain restaurant. Kids everywhere!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "I know the restaurant is highly rated but it really missed the mark when I was there 2 nights ago. We saw our server at the beginning and then had to flag someone down the entire rest of the night: more drinks, more wine, more anything. Food was good, not exceptional though and definitely not better than what NYC has to offer. It was also a birthday and even though it was mentioned via Opentable and throughout the night, it was never acknowledged that evening."

  • "We really enjoyed our meal. We started with a selection of the vegetable antipasti - all were delicious, but the green beans were amazing. The pasta w/braised pork shoulder, tomato and basil was incredible, as was the white Pizza special with summer truffles and an egg on top. The sommelier did a great job helping us select from the extensive Italian wine list."

  • "Otto has been one of our favorite go-to places for years when it comes to a special occasion dinner, however, this most recent time there was very disappointing. Overall, the restaurant was very loud, including the thumping music which I don't recall being so apparent in the back dining area. Our table for 7 was squeezed into a corner that didn't leave much room for people against the wall to slide into their seats. Also, it took awhile for our server to initially greet us which was really surprising because the waitstaff has always been very attentive in the past. My husband was also slightly disappointed in his food - he always gets the pepperoni pizza and he said this time a different kind of pepperoni was used."

  • "The food is consistently outstanding, service not so much. This past visit service at horrible. To start the server told us we could not place a appetizer order until we selected our entire meal. With the bread no plates or olive oil offered, no cracked pepper for the salads, and no cheese was offered for the pastas. We had to ask to get drink refills 3 times. Servers and possible a manager were gathered around the wine table in the middle of the restaurant tasting wines and joking. Great if everyone is taken care of, not so much if you are looking for basic needs to be filled. The table was a mess debris from sugar and bread service were not cleared until dessert. Very disappointing to have such great food and such lousy service."

  • "This is the second time we have taken my kids and they even love it. The food and service are great and the prices are reasonable!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Otto never ever disappoints. It remains, years later, my personal all time favorite NYC restaurant. It is phenomenal food, wine, ambiance and awesome service. Somehow it manages to both be trendy and amazing while still being kid friendly. I go to it toe every chance I get!"

  • "This was my second time here and I just love the pizza here. So many different kinds and all so good!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The Summer Truffle pizza is amazing! Food is always spot on. Service is fair."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Good service but the food is just sub-par. My pizza had broccoli rabe and roasted garlic, but the garlic seemed raw and the broccoli rabe had no flavor."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Entertained some friends from out of town. Everyone had a great time. Service and food were fantastic! Prices very reasonable."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Good food. Thin crusted pizza. Just enough (if not a little more) for lunch. Probably better for groups. Will come back if I'm in the area with a group of people."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Server was not our server- we were attended by five that's right different staff members,( we felt sad We were celebrating our 39 wedding anniversary - very very very loud place But food was good- Insalata burata excellent -& berry crumble!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The tomato sauce on our 3 pizzas was too smooth and tomato paste-y, although the prosciutto on one was divine. Our one dish of pasta was nearly crunchy - at least a minute away from al dente. Broccoli rabe and baccala apps were good. Desserts were good. The restaurant was so loud, we were yelling to be heard and two large tables near us were empty."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This was my third visit to Otto. The food has always been good. With this last visit I was a bit disappointed with the service. Olive oil for bread dipping? Had to flag down the server and ask. Fresh grated cheese for your pasta? Wasn't even offered. Don't get me wrong. the food is consistently good (don't leave without trying the olive oil gelato)and I will certainly be back. The missed service details were Di disappointing, especially considering its a Batali joint."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The food is excellent and the wines are terrific. The sommelier was able to pick exactly the right wine for each person in our party. We had a special pasta, agnolotti with goat cheese, that was particularly good but overall the food was just wonderful. Most of the staff couldn't have been nicer. We always had bread and water at the table and one young lady even offered to take our photo. Our waiter, however, was not very good. I've eaten here before and had good service, but this waiter seemed really disinterested. We had to ask him 3-4 times for salt and pepper and there were several other things that we had to repeatedly ask for. He also was really kind of rude when we asked questions about the menu. Not engaging or friendly at all."

  • "I have been to a few of Mario Batali's restaurants and the pasta is usually the highlight. Tonight the pasta was almost crunchy. Really was not great. Sauces were not exceptional in anyway. The Pizza was mediocre...sauce need to be cooked a bit more. Crust flavorless.... Thin but not like in Italy...just thin and mushy. Appetizers were the highlight.They were delicious! It was also incredibly noisy."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The food and wine are excellent here. In particular, I highly recommend the Marinara pizza and the Bucatini Alla Gricia paired with aglianico."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "A recent lunch at Otto was bliss on earth, a full but not packed restaurant with attentive service, excellent pizza, and a reasonably priced excellent wine, all laced together with well modulated Italian opera in the background. Saturday evening was something else, more "scene" than a place to enjoy a meal with friends. Service was rushed (why not? tons young patrons hanging in the bar, waiting to be seated). Pasta was overcooked and over seasoned; the recommended wine never opened up to its high price; and the general atmosphere was more circus than dining room. Had asked for a quiet table but were seated in the passageway connecting the bar and the restaurant proper--pounding music, screeching tables, endless parade of guests."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Delicious food (especially the prosciutto, the lardo bruschetta, and the fresh meat ravioli) for great prices. The (Italian) wine list was extensive, well-priced, and well-curated (as well as a nice selection of wines by the quartino). Definitely coming back."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Very business-like ('fast churning of tables' business model is unappealing). It reflected none of Mr. Batali's joviality or whimsy."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Everything we ate was incredible. The meats, the cheeses and we both had pasta dishes that were to die for."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Food is great, but there wine list is the real gem."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • " I have not eaten here often but it never disappoints. The special pasta, with truffles, was outstanding! The salty peanut tartufo was very good but I would not order it again. It wasn't bad, just nothing that special. My daughter had the olive oil coppetta and that was very delicious. It's a wonderful restaurant and I was impressed that the host found my reservation promptly, without asking me to spell my name."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We came in to the city for a show and decided to have an early dinner at Otto. My husband and I ordered five items and split each one of them. The cauliflower and beets appetizers were so delicious; the mushroom and taleggio pizza made pizza a special treat; fusilli with sausage and escarole - delightful; the blueberry-almond crumble was perfect; the quartino (we had to have a second) was just the right match. The service was not overwhelming as is often the case in other restaurants - we usually like to go a little more upscale, but this WAS top notch without upscale prices. It was perfect for a date, ladies night out, families,...who wouldn't love eating there? We will be making trips in to the city now just to eat at Otto."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Was there before for end of day pizza and glass of wine and enjoyed it. This time was for dinner and it was full of tourist, loud and fair food. The pizza is the only thing to get there."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Totally disappointed, wine list is excellent, antipasti were good, but the Pizza was undercooked, too much sauce not enough cheese. Spaghetti Carbonara was so salty it was impossible to get down. If Osteria Morini starts making pizza, Otto is done"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Love the small dishes. We had the lentils. Thin crust pizza, peppers and sausage was very good. Save room for the gelato!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We had pasta and pizza - the truffle spaghetti is seriously amazing! And the pizza with clams is delicious. Great atmosphere, the servers are nice but not always around."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Walked in and it was LOUD! So many people packed in. Full house and this was at 9 on a Sunday night. It calmed down though about 1/2 hour in. Pizza was good. One of the pasta dishes was under cooked, but the waiter removed it from the bill. The fresh pasta dish was excellent. Make sure to share :). Dessert was excellent."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The staff was rude initially and after an initial cocktail order to waiter ever came to ask how we were doing or if we wanted more drinks. After dinner was cleared we were also brought a bill and never asked if we wanted dessert. I'm not sure why the waiters wanted to go home instead of serve us but the experience was awful. On top of that the food was mediocre, it was not bad, but not good enough to go back even if I lived around the corner. So disappointed."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Very big wine list... you will most of the common Italian reds And whites. Service was soso; waiters have an arrogance to them. Food was reasonably priced; which was a big surprise. They were willing to accommodate to my garlic sensitivity; which is hard since sauces are generally pre-made. A great place for friends And long time couples ... not good for kids or a romantic first date; too noisy And cramped."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I did my research about places to eat prior to leaving home and this one was at the top of my list. The restaurant is warm and inviting but too loud for me! I understand that might be a NY thing but yelling across the table to talk with the rest of the people in my party caused me more stress. Not only that but the waiter couldn't understand our questions and we had a difficult time hearing his. The "gourmet" Anchovy pizza was just the right size and was tasty but I wouldn't say it was the "best" pizza I'd ever had. On the other hand the Gelato was fabulous! The portion size was just right and I left feeling full but not stuffed! The decor was interesting but I'd suggest a few acoustical panels to help with the sound level."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We were forgotten a so many times and our waitoe really couldn't be bothered. I think I counted a total of 4 different ppl who took our orders (2 hosts, 2 runners). The only thing our actual waiter brought was the wrong pizza. I hope the other 3 ppl got some of the tip I left."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Been a neighborhood favorite of mine for a while. Service is super friendly and it's worth arriving early to talk with one of the sommeliers who wander the waiting area because their wine-list is very deep. Earlier this week he unearthed a unique (for us at least) Italian Pinot Noir. The pizza is good, but don't miss out on the small plates and pasta"

  • "Thrilled that I read GOOP NYC newsletter. Great food and perfect for kids"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I had been there a month earlier and both the meal and the service were fantastic! This time, however, the service was so poor that it ruined the evening for us. After waiting for quite some time, the server came to greet us. She was short and not very friendly. We saw her twice more, once to order wine and once to order dinner. The rest of the evening she walked past us but never stopped to check on us, never even poured us another glass of wine. The people who filled the water, delivered our food and cleared our plates were great. And the hostess who delivered our bill was also very nice."
