The fennel salad was disgusting. It was watery, did not have any flavor from the fennel and was not properly dressed. The Pizzas at the table were all quite good.

That was my first time at Otto, the place was recommend by a friend who lives in NY for decades and know a lot about good restaurants in the Village.
The service is excellent, the waiter suggested the wine and dishes, however if you’re really hungry start with salumi, cheese, salads, because the plate is really small, but delicious. The price for food is reasonable, not expensive nor cheap. The experience was great and I would definitely go back to Otto for more!

We’ve loved Otto for a long time, and always wish to replicate the lovely memories of times we’ve enjoyed meals there before. However, our last three attempts over the last three or four years have resulted in a disappointment. It’s a great space, the food has at times been fantastic, and the service used to top everything off. This has not been the case for a while anymore. I wish this establishment every success but we won’t be returning for a while yet.

One pasta tasted like it had literally gone bad, and one pasta was half cooked!! Not al dente, like uncooked! BUT the staff was awesome and quickly made new food for us and cracked a joke about it. But no, I will not be returning.

A great place for a special meal like a birthday - space is huge and can accommodate parties, and when the waiter heard it was a special occasion he plopped a candle on dessert. The pasta we ordered was a bit disappointing in portion and taste, but the pizza was outstanding, as was the dessert (we had two).

This was the worst experience dinning out that I’ve ever had. We had a reservation for 6 at 8:15, which we didn’t get seated until over 40 min later. We waited at the bar and ordered a pizza as a snack and two glasses of wine from the bar. The bartender was rude. When he wasn’t ignoring us, he made comments expressing how we should be ordering more. Once we finally sat at our table, we waited for someone to come by for over 20 min. We finally flagged someone down, only to be rushed through ordering our entire meal at once and to be told that they really weren’t our waiter, but that they could take our order if that’s what we wanted. The food was practically inedible. My friends pizza was burnt, all the pastas were over cooked and horribly salty. My bolognese tagliatelle came out as spinach fettuccine stuck together with a small spoonful of the saltiest sauce I’ve ever eaten. I had two bites and could not eat anymore. At the end of the day, I’ve had better meals at a fast food/takeout joint then anyone at my table had. Even though it was my birthday, we had no dessert. Couldn’t wait to get out of there! Our one course meal took hours and I just couldn’t bare to waste another 5 minutes of my life there. DO NOT GO HERE! Just horrible

I love Otto!!!!! Every time it is amazing well priced great service. Only slight qualm I have is that you get seated very close to your neighbors but when it’s busy enough you don’t really mind.

We had a wonderful experience at Otto! Wonderful wine list & Sommelier was extremely knowledgeable, helpful & down to earth. We ordered the buffalo mozzarella which was realllly good! The spaghetti carbonara was also delish. The star was definitely the meatball & chili pizza. It was SO GOOD! It is spicy but if you like a kick then you’d love it. The prices were very reasonable esp for Italian. I will def be back!

It is a surprisingly big restaurant, and the tables were tightly packed but not cramped. We had to wait a few minutes past our reservation time but were able to sit at the bar and get a drink in the meantime. The food was very good, and their glasses of wine were generously poured.

We had just under an hour to spend at Otto, so I was a bit nervous, but they know what they're doing. Service was prompt and UNBELIEVABLY fast - my partner was able to order a birthday dessert and pay the check in the two minutes I was gone to the bathroom. The food is always delicious - I've never had anything bad at Otto. Where we were sitting was near the kitchen so there was a lot of commotion, but it was never quite so loud as to interrupt our conversation, so there's really nothing to complain about!

It was fun to come back here recently for a quick, early dinner during a long intermission for a show nearby. I used to visit quite regularly a number of years ago and was delighted to find that the menu format for both food and beverage is largely intact and still works beautifully. We started with a couple of Verdure (Lentils "Toscana" and Cauliflower alla Siciliana) along with two Quartini of vino, then added a salad (escarole and sunchoke) and a mozarella (roasted tomato and pesto genovese). There was PLENTY of food for the two of us (in fact, enough to take the leftovers along for a snack the next day), and our waiter was most accommodating of our tight schedule. Will definitely be back soon for pizza and salumi!
