A great place to hang out with friends and family - really great pizza (simple and awesome flovor combinations). Great wine list - superbly curated. Really friendly service and very accommodating for young visitors - we have been there with babes and little ones - and all are always welcome. A great place - super local neighborhood gem and I...

I've been here a couple of times now, and both times been very impressed. No reservation on a Tuesday night around 9pm. Had to wait about half an hour, but in the meantime enjoyed a cold platter of meat and cheese at the standing tables in the front bar. Once seated, noisy and busy, but the food came out relatively...

We had reservations for 9pm and weren't seated until 9:30. It was so loud, it was hard to hear the person sitting across from me, let alone the person at the end of the table. When the waiter brought our food out, my husband and I just looked at each other and tried to contain our laughter of how little... More

Enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Didn't have to wait long for a table on a Saturday night for two people.

I really enjoyed my night at Otto. I was with 5 other friends and after enjoying wine at their spacious bar we were seated for dinner. We shared a combination of pizzas and pastas and each was delicious! This is just a good quality restaurant with a really great feel to it. A little crowded feeling when you're seated in... More

We were there for a birthday celebration. Since we had made a reservation, they seated us at a nice table. The service was very lackluster and impersonal. I understand this is restaurant affiliated with a renowned chef but they could at least try and make an effort in accommodating patron's requests. Between the 5 of us we had several requests...

We went to dinner here with cousins and family - Loved that we were able to get a great table with 10 of us. Very good food, although not insanely so. Reasonable prices, given the neighborhood and buzz about the restaurant.

I never got to eat. We made reservations for 4 at 9:30. It was 10:15 and we still were not sat. There must have been at least 10 parties of 2 that were sat before us. We stood at a table by the bar and ordered a few drinks and a cheese platter. That came out quick, but once we... More
