This is the third time visiting. I came back for the lasagna bolognese and it did not disappoint. Also the dessert with the Olive Oil gelato was to die for. The food is delicious and the service was very attentive.

Unfortunately, this was one of the worst meals that I have had in NYC. The waiter was quite nice but the food was just so unpleasant. The prime rib appetizer was so fatty. I could barely stand like looking at it. The vegetables were ice cold, clearly prepared very far in advance.

Outstanding food, charming ambience. Noise level very high for such a small, quaint place. Hard to find with scaffolding around if you aren't from the area. We were just visiting and wanted to try local fare. Very close to entrance of Washington Park. Dogs permitted in restaurant - didn't like that. Wait staff very responsive and good suggestions.

I forgot why I haven't been here in a while, it's nothing special. Go to Lupa one of the other restaurants they have under the umbrella. Food is mediocre at best the atmosphere and size of the restaurant is what this place has going for it.

I have eaten here before and I feel like on this visit the food tasted flat, especially the red sauce items; the Bolognese was especially blah. The sfogato and pepperoni pizza were stellar as always, but not much else was.

Super Bowl night so very quiet. Octopus appetizer was awful, no taste and dry rubbery octopus. Beets with pistachios was better, but also pretty bland. Pizza Quattro Formagi was okay. Crispy crust, but not great.
The service was good. Probably because it was so quiet.
I had been here years ago, and it was much better then.

Otto never disappoints. I brought some friends visiting from Brazil, because I knew that they would love it. And they did, down to the 5 year old. Our server was wonderful as well.

Alana, the wine manager/Sommelier was fantastic. She gave us 2 outstanding recommendations that paired really well with our food. Our waiter was also really attentive. I was a little disappointed in the pizza, but the pasta and veggies were delicious and the cheese plate for dessert was the perfect ending to the meal.

I called ahead and requested a birthday candle for our table to be brought out during dessert. The waitress did not follow thru and I was extremely disappointed singing happy birthday with no candle in any of our desserts. Hostess and waitress need to coordinate special requests.

Price of wines by the glass, drinks, and beer was ridiculous— wine by the bottle list was way too long and unreadable -
Service was ok but not very friendly nor helpful in providing recommendations. Overall, a forgettable experience.

Otto has great food and cocktails - everything was delicious. The downside the to the evening was the service. We had an 8:45 reservation, and the waitstaff obviously just wanted to get out of there (although there were a good two dozen tables with diners when we entered and many still there when we left).

First, we were placed at a terrible table when there were many other better tables available. It requires one of us to squeeze in behind a door.

Second, someone came by and from a distance of about three feet away literally tossed a bag of breadsticks and some wrapped up bread. No offer to provide olive oil or butter - just plain bread.

Third, we ordered and enjoyed the food, but they rushed out the main course two minutes after dropping off appetizers.

The food was great, but we were rushed in and out of there in thirty minutes. If I wanted a fast-food experience, I’d go somewhere else.

This was my second time at Otto and I was less than impressed. The chopped Otto salad was not good - dressing and mix of ingredients was not pleasing. We also ordered the special black truffle pasta, which was fine - but didn't highlight the truffles very much. The pizza - goat cheese - was odd. Fine, but odd. The chunks of squash on top were huge, in comparison to the very thin pizza, making it an odd thing to eat. We ordered an apple dessert, which was fine. The coffee, however, was outstanding and the best part of the meal.

This was some of the worst food I've ever eaten. Cheese pizza did the impossible - it tasted bad. The Pesto pasta, although covered in tons of sauce, tasted like absolutely nothing. Supermarket pesto would have been better tasting than this. Thoroughly disappointing and will not go back.
