I highly reccomend Otto. The food and service was exceptional. Every part of the spedini was amazing, especially the anchovy sauce. The linguini and mussels were perfectly cooked and seasoned. What a great dining experience!

Imaginative menu, beautiful surroundings, great service. We shared gourmet pizza and salad, both recommended by our waiter and both delicious. Lots of designer pizza places on the Strip...this one stands apart.

I have eaten at Otto's numerous times now. Love the ambience of being at the Shoppes and the various singers that perform nearby.
And of course the food. The lowest cost option for a Mario Batali restaurant in Vegas, but the food is still excellent. I always love starting with a cheese platter as they always have a great variety.
Two of the entrées were excellent (pork chop & mussels). The chicken was a little dry. Service was a little slower than previous visits. But it was still an enjoyable visit.

A fun way to remember what it is like to really eat in Venice. The cheese plate was phenomenal, so was the wine list.
5/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
The fritto misto for appetizer was really tasty except the prosciutto fritters were too salty. The bucatini amatriciana and rigatoni ragu' was awesome. The service was friendly and courteous. I would definitely go back.

Otto was great - good food as expected and the ambiance was awesome. I booked for Mario Batalli and didn't realize it was in St. Mark's Square so that was a great discovery. The vegetable dishes were wonderful for a first course (beets, peas and eggplant) and the Bavette pasta was perfect, great small portion size. All other meals in my party were very good too. Will defineatly go again. Great service, great food, great ambiance.
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Almost didn't go because of negative online reviews. waiter great,food delicious,format of the menu let us try many small dishes. Started with Prosciutto board covered in meltinyour mouth slices. fried ricotta and arugula salad with smoked mozzarella . waiter noticed our board was done but we had no other food, he checked with the kitchen, learned that our app order was delayed, appologized and brought a dish of eggplant caponata to us while we waited. Apps came,we realized they were much larger than we expected(based on comments from online reviews about small portions)he gladly cancelled one of our entrees which had not been started yet. only disappointment was warm chocolate cake with gelato,more like gelato with a small chocolate disk.

Wonderful service! Great food and even the music was good! Best service we had in Vegas!
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great time and terrific food! We had a party of six and everyone loved the food. Service was great! We ate outside (in the plaza) and loved the atmosphere. The dessert we had was the best that my wife and I have ever had. Thank you!

Great outdoor dining in St.
Great outdoor dining in St. Mark's Square area of Venetian hotel, casual & relaxed. Great menu, nice appetizers, pizza, and entree offerings. Good well prepared, tasty, nice portion sizes. Service was good, could have been better. Restaurant was quite crowded, so assume server was busier than usual. Wine list and dessert menu to complement rest of menu. Definitely would return next time in Vegas.
5/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ken the restaurant manager was amazing - his recommendations were spot on and everything we tasted was spectacular. He pointed out to us that the desserts were made from locally grown ingredients and WOW - the gelato tasted just like eating ripe fruit (and the mint was mmmmmmmmmm)

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas.
5/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great meal at Otto Las Vegas! Always my first stop when I am in town, and I'm never disappointed. You've got to try i

Had delicious food for lunch . Cheese platter and meat platter were the bomb. Recommend the ricotta fritter. Best thing ever.

Excellent wine list with reasonable prices for Vegas.

One of our favorite spots in Vegas
Otto's is one of my favorite restaurants in Sin City. It is the one place where I pretend calories do not exist because I know I can't restrain myself. Each item is perfection and melts in your mouth. I'm not a huge Italian food fan, but Ottos is the exception to the rule.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Pleasant Surprise
After reading some very mixed reviews, we did not know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety of the food. We are fans of small plates and enjoyed the selection of choices - we truly mixed it up. The only weak point was the service. While our server was pleasant, he was simply covering too many tables. Thought the price was fair for the quality/quantity as - it is Las Vegas after all.

A lite dinner at Otto
Like everything this talented team creates, Otto Enoteca provides a wonderful dining experience = wether it be for lunch or dinner.
Destyn Taylor (the GM) oversees the restaurant seamlessly, and the staff, under her exacting eye is superb - al the way around. The food, as to be expected - is marvelous. The ambiance is consistent with the surrounding - yet understated and does not take away from the subtle design of the interiors. Skip the other 'Disneyish' places and spend you time and money at Otto - you'll be very glad you did.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went there for the opportunity
Went there for the opportunity to sit 'outdoors' in the ambience of Venetian's St. Mark's Square. Perhaps any of the other 3 similar restaurant settings would have been just as good. My pasta was surprisingly al dente although I didn't request otherwise. The wine and pasta sauce were excellent.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM

Excellent food, reasonable prices and a very good, extensive wine list. We will definitely returns the next time we are in Las Vegas.

always dine here when I come to Vegas, amazing restaruant
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The appetizers and pizzas are out of this world. You could just order a few appetizers and a pizza and that is enough for two people. The portions are perfect. Food was outstanding. The goat cheese,pancetta and carmelized onion pizza is to die for. Really enjoyed it and would definately go again. Also the lemon pie dessert is different and so good!!!
7/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
My Happy Place
Love seasonal dishes? As fresh, seasonal ingredients arrive, Otto renews its menu. Recently, concord grapes came into season and out come fresh, house-made PB&J gelato. Frozen heaven! The fried cauliflower is addicting, and the tuna salad was incredibly fresh and vibrant. We decided to try the pasta puttanesca - it was lovely with a hint of brininess and the fresh, house made pasta was cooked perfectly.
The wine menu is extensive and they offer a nice selection of enomatics as well in 2 oz, 4 oz, and 8 oz pours. After dinner, as we were enjoying the taste of frozen summer, we sipped on a artfully made cappucino and an americano. It's incredible to feel so relaxed and happy after a meal, and the folks at Otto know how to do it right.

Took a Mario Battali Fan Here
A dear friend who is a big Mario Battali fan was in town so we booked a Tuesday evening reservation at Otto's. We arrived and were immediately seated in a luxurious four table back room with their wine selections lining the wall. The waiter and staff were extraordinarily friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and fast. They could answer all of our menu questions and were very attentive while not being obtrusive. The food and salads, including the day's bruschetta were all very, very good. Portion sizes were moderate as I would expect at a fine cuisne restaurant. A great experience. And this is the most casual of the three Battali restaurants in the Palazzo and Venetian complex on the Vegas strip. We would definitely return.

Favorite Restaurant in Vegas
Let me clarify - it's not the best restaurant. It's not even the best Mario Batali restaurant in the Venetian, but it is my favorite for a few reasons (besides that the food is great). 1. It's reasonably priced. 2. The menu has amazing Italian variety including charcuterie, cheeses, pastas, pizzas, mains, veg, et. al. We could eat there 5 nights in a row and never repeat a thing. 3.Great selection of Italian wines by the glass or quartino. We make it a point to go to Otto every time we're in Vegas. The only downside is that is quite loud.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
What an experience!
This is the second time my husband and I have dined at Otto in the last couple of months. Matter of fact the ONLY reason we returned is the impression from our first visit stayed with us & we talked about it so much, we had to come back. That was due to several factors - but Chad, our waiter, was number one. He was fabulous. The food & wine pairing he suggested was SO spot on it was amazing. He knows his stuff and is very cool, fun, talking to you about it. His suggestions are well articulated & he totally made us feel special. Second visit, better, if that's possible. Chad again hit a homerun with the wine & food pairing. Awesome ingredients, well thought out preparation - absolute heaven. Trip 3 is already in planning.

When we arrived they could not find our reservation (even though they had called earlier to confirm). However they found us a table quickly.

Our favorite go to restaurant
Great service; great wine ; delicious food. A server who was able to negotiate a dairy free amazing meal for a friend with food allergies. Our favorite !

Great dinner before Rock of Ages
Sommelier was unfased when we asked for bottle of wine under $50. Waiter was great - enjoyed prosciutto and dried salami and fontina cheese as appetizer. Delicious sausage and pepper pizza and delicious bavette pasta with fresh ground pepper and pecorino cheese. Topped it all off with espresso, pistachio and salted caramel gelato. Everyone from our waiter to the water guy were gracious and welcoming. You will not find a better dinner at the Venetian!

The main reason to eat at Otto's is the cheese, meats and the pasta. They are the best.

Great casual pizza with a view
Went for a casual dinner our first night in Las Vegas. It was exactly what we expected- decent food, not too expensive, lovely ambience on the patio.

Mario Batali Fan
For me this is always on my dining stop whenever in Las Vegas. Great scene and reasonable prices incredible food such as the Proscuitto and Margharita Pizza.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
great find in the Canal Shoppes
this is wonderful Italian food in casual setting in Venetian complex of canal shops.
Pasta was fabulous and the choice of Italian wines on wine list won't disappoint!!

The best meal I've had in vegas and the service was very good unlike grande lux who were rude as ever

Fab as always
was our second visit to Otto and did not disappoint. The Fritti we ordered were great. The secondi excellent, wine pricey but hey that's Vegas baby.

Have returned 3 times to this
Have returned 3 times to this gem of a restaurant in Vegas...Joe Bistianich and Mario Batali offer affordable, INCREDIBLE, authentic food and wine...from business dinners to just fun, it's my go to in Vegas
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
So good we went 2 nights in a row!
We decided to try Otto out mostly because of our love of Mario Batali and the menu looked yummy. We were not disappointed! The atmosphere was fun and relaxing and felt very appropriate for the Venetian hotel. The menu is quite extensive with choices in most budgets. Our waiters were wonderful and hit the nail on the head with all the recommendations, from the wine to the appetizers to which pasta dish we should try. This will become one of our MUSTS when in Vegas!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is always good. Service is top notch. Great prices. A home run .......
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not as good as I'd heard
We heard the buccatini dish here was to die for. We both ordered it, expecting the best meal of our lives. But it was very spicy - so much so that the spice covered up the many other flavors we knew were there.
Service was great, very helpful and knowledgable, and patient. Menu was physically small, so not much explanation - which we could've used in looking over the various cured meats available as appetizers.
Good wine by the glass, though by-glass selection is limited. Also they pour 2-serving portions, so a $19 "glass" is really two $9.50 glasses.

For my 50th Birthday
My wife and I have been coming to Otto for years. We got to know the manager and her husband who happened to be the chef. We looked forward to seeing them again this week for my 50th birthday, but alas they had been transferred to San Diego. We were disappointed, but no worry..the staff at Otto, from our hostess to the new manager...(new to us) didn't miss a beat..we felt special..we felt welcome...we felt at home..add to that the most unique and flavorful pizza I've had since my 40th..that would be the Brussle Sprout Pizza with a Lemon Aoli..the Preserved Tuna with Beans..the Octopus Salad with Potato...if you are in Las Vegas and you want authentic Italian, this is a must. Thank you Otto..

Lunch at Otto
Great food and service, although the selection is limited for people with food allergies and, even at lunch, the noise level can get pretty high.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lovely restaurant but it does offer very small portions and expensive. We were disappointed in the carne plate, 3 small slices of salami, 3 small pieces of ham, and 3 small pieces of mortadella for $27. Really ridiculous. The pasta was delicious but very small portion. There was plenty of room for the delicous gelato and cappucino we had. $225 for 3 of us. Of couse, the atmosphere in the Venetian on Saint Mark's Square is divine and the reason we love going there.

Food was not cheap but excellent. Def would recommend their braised pork shoulder. The spicy spaghetti with meat balls was good too. I didnt care much for the apple crisps n pear dessert. The choco cake looked real good though
