Italian goodness

Great food, poor atmosphere, great service. I stopped in because of sign advertising fresh clams. Great steamed clams and wonderful marinar sauce.

Restaurant itself needs update, we do takeout of food since we are so close. Spaghetti and meatballs excellent, not too spicy but does have a tang.

My wife and I eat at Otto's about once a month. All the food is excellent, but their Raw Clams are the best, regardless of the time of the year. I also am a big fan of their spaghetti and meatballs. The service is always prompt and friendly, and the prices are reasonable. You can't go wrong at Otto's.

We were there around lunch and dinner time and I thought the prices for dinner were kind of high given the decor. Seemed like a decent sandwich joint so we had a club sandwich and a chicken finger sub. Both were excellent and priced very reasonable. I'd have no problems going back and might pony up the $$and try dinner!

We have driven past this place several times while in the Walden Galleria area and decided it was time to try it out. On a busy Friday during Lent, we were shown to their upstairs dining room. They have a very large menu with very reasonable prices. I tried the fish fry and the fish was good and the fries... More

Large menu with a wide variety for everyone! The beer battered fish is crispy and very tasty, the eggplant parm was great, (sauce is a bit tangy). Warm Italian and Rye bread served with meal. Super friendly waitress, very casual atmosphere and reasonable prices.

I have not been to Otto's in over 7 years. Keep passing the LED sign for spaghetti and kept saying I would visit. Well today I did. Large parking lot and bar was some distance from dining room. Very friendly staff. I finally went to my favorite for judging a pizza/sub shop, Cheeseburger sub. I just found, the other day... More

Menu has something for everybody. The pasta, wings, fish, and beef on weck are all tasty with large portions. Have a hard time deciding what to get when there. High quality. Great hot italian bread. Friendly and comfortable.

Stopped by for lunch and ordered the Beef on Weck. I was surprisingly disappointed. This native sandwich should have been treated with respect and I what I received was short of the honorable sandwich. The few crumbs of salt and rye seeds on the bun didn't represent what the sandwich is named after. Basically, beef slapped on bread. The french... More
