Great food but loud

The food was amazing. We had a cheese plate that included truffle honey, cherries and spicy apricots. It was incredibly delicious. Truly a must try. I shared pasta with a friend. It was al Dante and cooked perfectly. The portions were a little small. The restaurant was decorated nicely but it was... read more

we have been to Otto on many occasion, and every time we visit Greenwich Village in NYC we wind up going back. The food is first rate and the staff is friendly knowledgable and fast. We shared the chopped salad, the pizza special with sausage and peppers and the pasta dish with fusilli sausage and spinach. We enjoyed everything. We... More

Well folks. We had high hopes but.... Very nice wine list and seems like a fancy little Greenwich village sort of bistro. Great atmosphere. But, the pizza fell short. It really was not very good at all for the money. Trust me, take a trip to Little Italy area and just find a small joit to pull up into. You... More

This restaurant was mentioned by a friend, and it happened to be near our hotel, so we went in for dinner. It was late (about 9:30) and we were hungry after a long day of traveling. We were immediately seated, and they brought bread and water the second we sat down. Our server was VERY friendly and had great recommendations.... More

Visited Otto after many years away and the food was so good. Perhaps because it was an early dinner, there was no pressure to eat and leave and not much noise which is different than past visits. We had salads and pizza and gelato. The food was great and the gelato was out of this world good. The service was... More

Some of the dishes seemed silly, like they're trying too hard. I had better elsewhere over the same trip.

We went here with a friend of ours who recommended this restaurant and absolutely loved it. For New York City the prices are very good(pasta for about $10) and the food is really good. The wine was one of the best we had in the US also. We were pleasantly surprised by this and might return on our next visit.

We were there for a late lunch, so the place was quiet. The staff were friendly and attentive. Excellent bread. Really nice pasta and pizza with a reasonable price for wine. Would not hesitate to eat there again

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
