Otto Enoteca Pizzeria Ratings and Reviews
We had dinner here last Friday night, after my son had suggested we try it. Cute place with good service. The Caprese salad is out of this world - cut/maybe stewed tomatoes on the bottom with a very flavorful small amount of cheese covered in delicious pesto. Fabulous!
The ravioli was very good but I have had better Puttanesca. Recommended
I love OTTO. It’s not the quiet place in a hole, but pretty, and the pastas are fantastic. In fact I ordered 2 pastas for dinner because I knew both were great. I love ravioli and stuffed pasta in general and since they are often small portions, I got 2 different ones that put me in orbit!
Despite our early arrival, we were able to be seated immediately in the bar area for dinner instead - much appreciated. We shared a starter (brussels sprouts) : being told they would be served at room temperature, it was a bit of a surprise to find they still had a chill on them from the fridge. My main (goat cheese agnolotti) was great but my friend's putanesca was decidedly watery. We both ordered the olive oil copetta for dessert and that was the highlight of the meal.
Server was civil, not as friendly as I expected for such a casual and boisterous atmosphere.
Overall a good experience, unfortunately not amazing.
Everything was wonderful! While waiting for our table, we ordered drinks at the bar and our bartender was very knowledgeable and picked out the perfect glass of wine. When seated, our waiter, Dan, was exceptional! He gave us excellent recommendations - we loved the wine, meats, cheeses, brussel sprouts, pasta, and the Olive oil dessert! We are definitely big fans and will be back the next time we're in the city 😃
I do not know what happened with OTTO, it used to be fantastic now it's very cheap, the olives, Formaggi and Carnes are still good, we shared the Linguine Putanesca, the taste of the canned tomato puree was so obvious, really bad and then we tried the Penne with Noci e Ricotta, no noci and no riccotta just pesto, and in bad pesto, the pizza was not as good as always but for sure saved the night. very Poor dinner, what a shame.
My favorite place to go with a group. They have round tables that are great for groups conversing. Food and service are always great and prices are reasonable so you don’t have a heart attack when you get the check.
I’ve been coming here for years and will continue for many more.
The place was packed, which in and of itself not a bad thing, but it was quite noisy with a VERY loud laugher at the table across from us. It was so loud, it stunned us. I don't think the woman was aware of how piercing her laugh is/was.
The service was excellent. Our server was attentive and helped us make good decisions. We ordered the chopped salad and 2 pizzas, vongole, and cacio y pepe. The clams were a bit gritty and were piled in the shell on top of the pizza. While I appreciate knowing that they were serving fresh clams, the grit was unacceptable. The flavor, aside from the crunching, was very good, briny and fresh. The cacio y pepe was very salty, my opinion, overly so. We took half of each pizza home with us.
The chopped salad was quite good with the brightness of lemon and the sea-flavor of the anchovies (they must have been in the dressing, I didn't see one in the salad) helped whet the appetite.
We capped the meal off with a shared gelato with 3 flavors, salty peanut, olive oil, and hazelnut with chocolate. My fav was the olive oil, just perfect.
Came to NY to visit our son and daughter in law for Thanksgiving week. We always come to Otto Enoteca - it always is the best. Gotta save room for Olive Oil Coppetta! It’s always loud - today was exceptionally loud with lots of families with little kiddos. But i know the families with screaming kiddos could enjoy that great food because they have an amazing selection of wine also!😎
Food wad ok with the exception that they don’t publicize that all their meats are pork based.
Their argument is that this place is authentic Italian with a lot of pork, which is debatable. For those that have been in Italy, they will be sole judge of this argument.
Their online menu wasn’t updated
Service was ok, but not great.
We had to revert to a lot of carb with pizza, pasta and cheese to finish our dinner. So not a great experience overall and not recommending the restaurant.
We were going to see Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden that night. Unfortunately Babbo was not open early enough so we booked Otto. We went to Otto in Vegas also. What can you say it's a B&B restaurant so of course it was very good. Bartender was also awesome before we had dinner.
Full transparancy: this place is noisy! However, if you can live with that you will get the full Batali experience with great cheese and salami options and excellent pizzas. For pasta I would go osmewhere else. And do NOT miss out on the gelato, the olive oil flavor is a memory for life.
When we arrived we found the menu a little confusing(quite different to the many Italian restaurants we have dined at in Australia).However our waitress soon put us at ease,taking the time to explain how the menu worked and making some recommendations that turned out to be very suitable to our tastes.After we ordered some wine and the food started to arrive we found the experience delightful.The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend in Australia and we in turn would have no hesitation in recommending it to other friends travelling to New York.Our visit was for a special occasion (my 70th birthday)and the experience is one I will remember for a long time.Thank you for making it special.Even my desert came out with a candle.A lovely touch,thank you again.Ken C satisfied Australian visitor.
This is one of Mario Batali's restaurants but this one is a bargain by NYC standards. The food combines pizza, pasta, and a wonderful array of apps, charcuterie, salads, and cheeses. Our meal consisted of 2 apps. The first was a delicious poached octopus salad with fennel. The 2nd was blanched broccoli rabe tossed with ricotta salt cheese in a light vinaigrette, another winner. Pasta dishes were pork loin braised in tomato/basil sauce, hot sausage with escarole. Both simple and absolutely delicious, served in ample portions but not ridiculous. The gelato for dessert was outstanding. Ambiance was intimate and inviting.
Sadly there was too much salt on the pizza. Prosciutto pizza is not supposed to be put in the oven together. Prosciutto should have been added after to avoid saltyness. Overall food is good - Americanized Italian but good.
Enjoyed a truly memorable meal at Otto a few years back, this trip was less tasty. The salads are quite large—plan to share one with two or three people as a starter. The fresh pastas far surpass the regular pasta dishes, so stick to those. I found my maple panna cotta to be too sweet, though the flavor combination and texture variety was excellent. My dining partner loved her “black and white.”
