My 21st birthday meal was spent here at Otto, on walking in it was very busy and the decor was lovely. We were seated right away despite being a bit early for our reservation. The mozzarella pesto starter was beautiful, I totally recommend it. I had the pepperoni pizza, and other members of my party had the ravioli and carbonara.... More

food is almost average in quality but high price. Son not feeling well I went for a pizza to go and they were so rude and condescending. First person dismissed me to someone else as he rolled his eyes at me. Gal who took my order never ever looked up at me. Came back in 20 min as they said... More

Went to Otto after skating in Bryant Park. What a great place! Started with the nicest glass of Valpocelli ever, then had anchovies, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower (3 separate items). My girls all had pizza, two four cheese with fried egg and one white with black pepper. And we even had room for dessert. Wonderful outing.

A year ago my wife and I scheduled a tasting at Otto before leaving the hotel. We then went out for the day and upon arrival at Otto we found the class had been canceled. The restaurant had tried to contact us at the hotel but the message did not get to us. Otto moved us to the next class... More

Wow...we had canceled our original reservation thinking this place wouldn't be so great after reading the reviews. Then we spoke with family who live in the city and they convinced us to give it a try since they love it. I am so glad we did. We went for an early lunch arriving just before noon and were worried at... More

Wish we had realized that this is really an upscale pizzaria because the pasta was not all that interesting. The decor is great and Marios restaurants will never disappoint. Just understand what fare this really is.

Otto Enoteca Pizzeria is one of the best in the USA! No matter what brings you to NYC or where you are located, you MUST visit Otto for drinks and food. Some of the best pizza I have ever eaten. We enjoy sitting at the bar and being served by Dennis - he is first class and a true professional... More

We were salivating for Pizza but really wanted some upscale atmosphere, and came across this place. Since we went during non busy hours, we were seated almost immediately, although the restaurant was buzzing with activity, but had tables available. To my surprise although the place is kind of upscale, but the food was surprisingly inexpensive. I am saying inexpensive which... More

I had some of the best dishes I have ever eaten at this restaurant. The ingredients were very fresh and put together perfectly. The venue itself is very cool as well. Would recommend this to anyone going to New York.

Hadn't been to this space since it was One Fifth, the restaurant. It was a haunt then. More in-crowd cool. But while that clubbier feel is gone, the food and service need no throwback comparisons. It's just very, very good. The staff is excellent, accommodating and without attitude. They found a perfect Franciacorta. The food just about perfect. The deserts... More
