    The restaurant overall is very nice. Wonderful menu of wines and the pizza's are good. The service is also very good. We waited to seat around one hour but during this time was possible to drink wine and to eat some appetizers.

    Pricey and for me, did not worth it. The only thing that was espectacular: the troufle honey that comes with the table of cheeses. Every other thing I tried: nothing special. I rather go to Eataly, where food is better and the list of wine is arround $12 off for the same bottles. I had a good time but won't return.

    Started at the bar with great glass of Veneto wine and a fantastic platter with awesome Coach Goat and Gorgonzola cheeses. After this we enjoyed dinner in the buzzing restaurant. Here we explored the winelist and found our self a great bottle of Barolo. We had pasta, pizza and salads, with compliments to the chef. Luckily we did not make the mistake to skip dessert. Great experience on a consistently high level.

    Dined on 11/16/2014
    Ordered two pizzas; egg and vongole, octopus something and olive oil gelato. Pizzas were special as seashells and fried egg are on for topping. Taste was something different with others I uesed to have, but not really so good. Maybe I have been too expected. Olive oil gelato was the very one people recommended but honestly, I dunno if it were good or not. Just soft icecream with few drops of olive oil to me. Of course, never tried before and something new but...

    Wasn't surprise the food was delicious but how affordable everything came to! The 3 of us shared 2 pastas, a pizza, a side, dessert and everyone got a drink. The total came to about $32 which was such a pleasant surprise! - Penne con Noci e Zucca - THE BEST dish of the night, all the flavors went really well together, it was lighter than expected. - Spagetti meatballs - (wednesday special) classic choice, great tomato sauce with tender and lean meatballs - Both pasta were al dente! - Spicy rabe w/ricotta salata was very appetizing and tasty - Funghi & Taleggio pizza - the dough was crispy and thin, fresh out of the oven, delicious! - Try the olive oil gelato! - Ginger gimlet was a winner

    I was a bit underwhelmed by this Mario Batali restaurant. My husband had the meatballs and spaghetti, which is a simple dish, and the sauce was very bland. The salads though were fantastic as was the pizza. The BEST part about this restaurant was the staff. They were very enthusiastic and well versed with the menu and specials. I would recommend this restaurant for them alone!!

    On this trip, Mr. Batali himself was around - better than a movie star sighting! Food was great. Had the Penne alla Norma, pizza with balsamic onions & goat cheese, pizza cacio e pepe. Pours of house rose were very generous. Perfect execution of the food, simple and high-quality. The man who first took our order made a mistake (pepperoni instead of cacio pepe) but I think shifts were changing. The second server & the food runner corrected it fast, generously offered us veggies to snack on (though we declined, we had pasta, bread, wine already!), and took fantastic care of our table. The bussing crew was very quiet but meticulous. A fab experience overall and dang, the FOOD! Really, really affordable for the quality IMO. What a treat.

    There aren't that many places you can say are great for groups---and this is definitely one of them. It's a little loud, so not the place for an intimate/cozy chat, but it always has a good, fun energy about it and the food is good. The prices are also reasonable and the pizzas are delicious and shareable.

    I went to Otto the other night with a couple friends to celebrate my birthday. The food and service was great. We ended up ordering a couple dishes and splitting between the four of us which worked out well. My only complaint about the restaurant was that they would not sit us until our entire party was there. One of my friends was running late from work, and they wouldn't sit us to start ordering drinks or anything else. Other then that, it was a great food, good price, and fun atmosphere. Oh and if you are a wineo then this is the place for your. There are more wines then food options ten times over.

    Balati's restaurant has really gone down hill. The sauce for Margerita pizza tasted as though it came out of a jar. Both pastas were over cooked. Waiting to be seated until all parties are present when there are 3 people for a table of 4 is off putting, as is the rule for all food being ordered at once, even appetizers or small plates doesn't say "good service" to me.

    We had a pretty good sized group and had made reservations well in advance. When we all arrived, I informed the host, and he said we'd be seated momentarily. We closed out our bar tab and went to wait by the host stand. Ten minutes later, we were still standing there! There was no apology or explanation. We were finally seated and ordered a bottle of wine, but there was no wait staff to take our food orders. The wine came (thankfully) with bread but no olive oil. It was another 10-15 minutes (really!) before we flagged a waiter down to help us, after I complained to a manager. At that point things got better, but the great food was offset by our first half hour of being ignored. The food just isn't worth this kind of treatment, in my mind.

    Everything on the menu sounded delicious so the hardest challenge was deciding what to eat. Although I get the feeling it would be hard to go wrong. Our pizzas, pastas and vegetables were all fab. Everything we ended up ordering was fabulous. We were seated immediately upon arrival and the service was smooth throughout. Decor is a bit blah, which is the one disappointment.
