“Fantastic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

You know when you go somewhere and within 5 minutes you can relax because you've picked a winner.......

From a handshake and a warm welcome from Paolo to a delicious glass of Limoncello after the meal, this was an excellent experience. Our enthusiastic and highly knowledgeable sommelier directed us to some top quality wines at reasonable prices. We all chose the degustation or gourmet menus and the food was just sensational.

A great ambience, very good service and interesting location mean that Otto's has become one of my new favourite restaurants in Singapore.

Thanks for a brilliant night!

“no Italian at all(”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I read reviews here and decided to go to OTTO. That was not good experience at all. Unfortunately, even huge portions was not cover flavorless and poor presentation of dishes.

To begin with setting:very cold and simple not enough space on the table (but this is norm for Singapore). For a starter a wondered to have Capresse with buffalo mocarella, tomatoes, and fresh leaves of basil. But this ITALIAN restaurant even doesn't have basil! So instead serve me Capresse-I was given huge two pieces mocarella with pharma ham on the top and small cherry tomatoes on the side....what was that is still mystery for me.(Personally spend in Italy for 5 years-Ive never experienced something the same) I have honestly say that tomatoes and chess were very fresh and pleasured to eat(ham was so/so). But ordered wine Pinot Grigio remaind was disgusting, like it was bought in Chana town!!!

The culmination was my main course: steamed garupa fish (this is nit Italian fish at all!!!) It was server simply by putting on deep plate with(as they sure) wine sauce. I try a bit and the taste was TOTALLY flavorless!!! I wondered to put some salt or black paper but it was not on the table!!!

Overall it was my first experience in Italian cousin which disappointed me a lot. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for fine dining in beautiful dress but for those how get bored with traditional cousin in Singapore it is OKla)

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

Dinner at Otto was an exceptional experience. Delicious food, great service. Everything we ordered was par excellent! Arugula salad had the freshest of flown in Italian cherry tomatoes. Had the cod wrapped in Parma ham which was perfectly cooked. Dessert was the warm chocolate cake with Haitian ice cream. Brilliant. Not too sweet and rich enough. Definitely a must-return place.

“Very Pleasant business lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

A detailed set lunch menu including lots of choice, each dish was well prepared and presented. There is also a la carte for lunch. A relaxed environment with professional service. The food is modern and fresh. I had the BBQ tuna which was cooked rare and served with BBQ eggplant. The fresh ham and potato salad served with reduced balsamic was excellent. The sorbet was crisp and with good citrus balance.

I will be back for dinner next time. They have an extensive Italian wine list to explore.

“Overpriced but good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Nice place to bring business or date. If you want to impress. Obscenely overpriced wine list. Good menu. Excellent service.

Nice place to spend a Romantic evening or have a business meal.
