Always the most enjoyable, quality charcuterie and cheese selection. The individual pizzas are delicious and unique. A ridiculously complete wine list and ALL are of the best quality in their price range and region. High energy restaurant full of laughter and great conversation. Interesting, not that many tourists. This is my third visit to OTTO and it will always be a favorite, casual
spot for great wine and pizza with friends and family.

No flexibility on the menu. This is NY. People often want to add a side protein like grilled chicken or shrimp. Not to mention there was no ability to get a side of steamed spinach or broccoli. Pizza was really disappointing. Crust was super soft. Could not hold a piece up with out it drooping down and toppings sliding off. Really surprised by the experience. On the plus side the waiter was good and the house cured prosciutto was amazing.

Worst dining experience I’ve had in a long time. Service was terrible, we barely could get water on the table. Several items we ordered never came. It was hot, like no air conditioning was on. It smelled in there and the food was super disappointing. Soggy pizza with too much sauce, and tiny mediocre portions of pasta.

We had a quiet!! delicious!!! late lunch here on the 4th of July, far from the madding crowd. Unusual quiet for this very popular Village spot.
The salad with red onions and the chopped salad are meals in themselves, but we each followed up with a plate of fusilli and sausage nonetheless.
Go. Eat. Be happy.

My husband and I arrived at 5:20 for a 5:30 reservation to celebrate our daughter going to camp. There was practically NO ONE in the restaurant, but we were sat next to a ridiculously loud large table under an air conditioner. We asked several times for our server to turn the A/C down. He would do this for 5 minutes, but then it would come back on. Finally just as I went outside to warm up, the manger came over and said she was shutting the A/C off entirely. They gave us a free tea and plate of biscotti. They never should have sat us there in the first place and should have moved us quickly. Our server also forgot one of our appetizers.
The food is excellent. But if you get a non responsive server your experience will compare to ours.

We had made reservations for my friends birthday to try the cheese and different charcuterie plates but this place certainly was not what other reviews made it seem. We made reservations specifically noting her birthday and expecting a great experience. It is a huge restaurant and when you walk in, the ambiance is a bit overwhelming. We got to the table and did not have a definite server; no one greated or introduced themselves. A gentleman then came with tap water but didn’t stay long enough for us to order. We asked two servers if they could take our orders before one came. We ordered a bottle of prosecco, the “All” salami plate and a 7 variety cheese plate requesting only goat cheese and telling the server to match 6 others to our salami. After, they brought plain olive oil with crackers brought in plastic wrappers with 2 pieces (yes, 2) of half and stale country bread wrapped in parchment paper and just tossed it onto the table. When our prosecco arrived, the staff did not bring appropriate glasses and did not offer a “taste,” as custom. When our meals arrived, no one explained the different varieties on the plate, no goat cheese was included in the cheese variety, and no crackers or bread or other things to eat the plates were included. At the same time, half our charcuterie went to waste, as all the cuts were majority fat and were all low-quality and bad cuts. At the end, I asked the server if they do anything for birthday and he sarcastically looked at her and said “happy birthday!” We ended up finishing and cashing out as fast as possible only to leave. Not a good experience. No where I’d ever recommend.

Only issue was that my husband and I were seated in the back room where 75% of the diners were families with small children. Otherwise the meal and service were exceptional.

I was sad to find that OTTO is not what it used to be. The food was terrible. The dining room was very loud (not the good kind of noise from jolly guests). Tourists and kids watching videos on their phones ok by me except long form kid movies and videos should be watched with headphones. The carbonara was tasteless, like limp plastic. I hope Babbo is still great.

Food was so underwhelming from the tasteless special pasta - linguine with black truffles, dry, flavorless and even somewhat metallic tasting, added salt, added pepper, added cheese, but still didn’t come together; to the fishy smelling anchovy pizza, super disappointed in what has been a favorite restaurant in the past.

Otto was recommended by Travel & Leisure Magazine as a restaurant to definitely put on your list for a 3-day getaway to Greenwich Village. It turned out to be one of the worst dining experiences we've ever had. Service was non-existent, food was average at best and our table was probably in the most undesirable spot in the entire restaurant with a draft from an AC vent. It would seem that Mario Batali has created a tourist trap and is using his name to attract patrons and not create an enjoyable dining experience.

I expected better food. I’ve had much better pizza. Our waiter left us sitting with our check for what seemed like an eternity while waiting on two bigger parties. After he saw my facial expression he came over and asked if we wanted dessert. By that time we did not.

After a long week, Otto Enoteca was NOT what we needed to relax and unwind and enjoy a meal. The layout of the restaurant proved a headache as we were seated in the one very busy hallway section and did not get a second of peace and quiet. At one point, a child walked by and got her long hair in our food. Salad and pizza took way too long and service was lacking. Will not return;- there are way too many other amazing pizzerias in NYC.

Came for Mothers Day with my Mother on Sunday. Service was horrible. Menu is extremely hard to read and asked for help and suggestions with menu and ZERO help .My mom forgot her reading glasses so she couldnt read and again our server was zero help. No suggestions. Nothing. Had such a lovely mothers day in New York and this was such a disappointment. Not friendly, no mention of Happy Mothers Day. We ordered a pizza and a salad. The salad was terrible, Basic spinach with lemon juice. And we ordered a pizza. The pizza was good. Topped off with a dessert that was mediocre.
Wont return! Too many other places to try!
