Had a reservation for four people. Got there early and the greeter was rude. I have been to this restaurant many times and never had this experience. We were seated in a very cold table. The hostess told us we couldn’t move, but the guys seating us said the opposite. Service at our table was terrible as we got many different waiters. The only good part was that the food was really good. Although none of of us got out entrees at the same time.

Never going here again.

Got great service with Anthony on this visit. Service is attentive generally.
Anthony called the Sommelier to help us picked the wine. Got the wine of the day and it was delicious.
Love the prosciutto. Pasta and Pizza are always good.

We enjoyed the quality of the food and the staff was pleasant and courteous.
The music, however, was abysmally loud.
We considered leaving because of the music, we could barely hear one another at a table for 2, but it was too late in the evening to go to another restaurant.
I would recommend the restaurant to friends with the caveat that they must enjoy extremely loud, pulsating music.

Fun energetic noisy restaurant near NYU. Close to Washington Square and Greenwich Village Comedy club. Pizza was great, pasta dish just a glob of tomato sauce on gummy fett noodles. Wine reasonably priced. Easy to get in and out if going to a club. Likely perfect for the college crowd, but not so much if planning a dinner out with friends.

We really enjoyed our meal here at Otto. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and the sommelier was incredibly helpful to tackle their vast wine list. The bottle he decanted for us was heavenly. My husband had the pork shoulder pasta which was delicious, and my son gobbled up his buttered noodles. I opted for two vegetables for my meal because they sounded fantastic - the carrots with thyme and pecorino and the brussel sprouts. Both were served cold which I had not expected and, just as a matter of personal preference, I would have preferred them both warm. There was too much cheese on the carrots (pecorino is delicious but overpowering when there's too much of it) and the brussel sprouts were mushy. But I shared the pasta with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed that. All in all I would highly recommend!

This very loud dining establishment had trouble finding our reservation when we arrived, then placed us in a very loud, rush area surrounded by families (we're two adults). It was hard to understand anything my friend was saying, even 2ft across from me at the table.

The food and wine were definitely tasty. Staff were attentive, when we could grab their attention.

For the value, it's a bit pricy, but I'd recommend it to some tourists if they wanted a place to take kids or large groups.

I was in NY with my 14 yr old son for Spring Break. We were going to see Stomp during Spring Break. The food - the meats for an appetizer - were fresh and delicious. I had pasta with sausage and escarole and it was perfectly cooked and so flavorful. My son had pizza and devoured it. We also had dessert. Wonderful meal.

Ive been to Otto’s many times and so know how to stretch the experience as the staff tends to shove you out the door before ever sitting down. I must say that on this occasion in particular Mike (waiter) and Joe (sommelier) were both fantastic fun and accommodating. Simply awesome. They Allowed us to take our time ordering, eating, and share conversation with them. While my partner and I love our time alone together these two men were a fun portion of the evening. Three cheers to each of you!!

Usually love this place every time. Unfortunately during my last visit, Otto and its staff failed to deliver the same great experience they have before. Despite being early to our reservation, we were seated late and the food preparation took so long that my friend had to leave before the meal was over. We had budgeted ample dining time, and when the food finally did arrive to our table, it was served cold. I love coming to Otto and introducing new friends to it, and seeing as it was my guest's first time there, I felt let down and that it colored her experience in a negative light. Please do not overbook or give away tables to those who didn't make reservations beforehand if the restaurant is crowded. I think the waiters were also much too overworked to be attentive or to give any updates regarding the delay in our meal. I will definitely be coming back, but this time I will probably make use of the bar seating instead, as to not have a repeated sub-par meal in the dining room.

Outstanding food at Otto's! Simple, direct, and extremely flavorful. Mid-evening it can be a bit too "energized," though, so be aware that it isn't conducive to quiet conversation. But it is an enjoyable place. GREAT wine list of course. The wandering somelier helped us decide between two Sardinian wines -- very useful role there! I'll be back for sure.

Salad was very disappointing - the Otto chopped was flavorless. But the service was really the problem - a young bus boy came to clear our table before our appetizers were done. I had to wrestle my fork from him in order to take my last bite, which he stood and watched me take so he could clear the dishes. Then he came back to wipe the table and knocked over my guest’s drink. Luckily, I moved quickly or most of the drink would have landed on me. Our waiter forgot to bring my guest’s glass of wine until midway thru the meal when we asked about it. All in all, incredibly disappointing.

I am a frequent guest at Otto, dining there 5 to 10 times a month. As always, last evening was exquisite. From the service to the meal, it was perfect. Our server, Michael, made the evening fun and enjoyable, but what stuck out was his work ethic. He made sure our plates were hearty and our glasses fun.

The place has a good ambiance, however, the food is nothing to rave about. My dish was meant to have anchovies and I couldn't taste them at all... and they have a very distinct flavor! Pretty much gave me spaghetti with red sauce instead of an elaborate dish with anchovies. My husband felt cheated with his dish too. But we were with two other couples and the wine and jokes kept on coming so we didn't complain, we just let it be.
