Otto Enoteca Pizzeria Ratings and Reviews

The service was atrocious, whether the waiter was carelessly tossing bread on the table or passing by without acknowledging the table, I was embarrassed to bring my family here. The food was OK, nothing special highlighted by the cafeteria like ambiance in the main dining room. The china, glassware and flatware were as charmless as the servers. Mario Batali should be ashamed of how far this Village institution has fallen.

The food was delicious! There were many items on the menu we wanted to try and since everything was priced so fairly, we ordered way more than we should have. The eggplant caponata was well made and flavorful. The clam pizza tasted good but had a soggy crust because they piled a mound of saucy clams (still in their shells) on top of the pizza. We ordered fusilli and sausage as well as the carbonara. Both pastas were al dente and satisfying. For dessert we shared the olive oil coppeta (gelato with pinenut brittle and blood orange). Not a combination we ever imagined liking but it was good! Only complaint was that the service was erratic and the ambiance/decor was a little lacking. Will definitely return!

For NYC, Otto Enoteca is a great value and good choice if you are a small group or large family (with kids). On this night, we were without kids, but noted that it would be a good spot to bring them in the future. There was a big mix of people dining. Excellent wine list...got a quality Italian red. Shared a pizza, pasta, salad and cheese plate. We were stuffed. All were great. Staff was friendly and attentive. We'll be back.

Wonderful dining experience. All the staff were amazing and the sommelier totally nailed the wine selection. The only criticism, and its a big one, is the restaurant is incredibly LOUD. We were there at 8:30 pm on a Tuesday and could barely talk across the table. Just a wall of voices bouncing off the walls. Would be fabtastif if they acoustically dampened the room. If you want to talk, or dont like noisy rooms, this is not for you. Food was fantastic.,

We missed our reservation due to a dearth of cabs and plentiful anti-Trump protesters. The host, when he heard our apology and explanation, found us a table right away, despite the 45 minute wait for some others. It was much appreciated.
The noise level is nuts, and on this Saturday night the place was packed. Service was great nonetheless, the atmosphere was upbeat, and the food good.
I could have and should have chosen a calmer venue for the occasion. I would go back, and do recommend it to others, especially for families wanting a reasonable, fun night out with the kids.
I do recall a previous visit in the late afternoon. It was quiet, I sat at the bar, and that amazing bartender plied me with craft bourbons. A nice memory.

Do not eat at Otto. The pizza is terrible, the place is terrible, the worst pizza I have ever had and everything else on the menu is premade, cold food. The food and this place awful. In a city with so much good food - even decent food - this was the worse of the worst. Mario Batalli should be ashamed to have his name on this restaurant. If anyone that works for him reads reviews, please do go back and eat here - taste the garbage you are serving.

Great location, great looking, great menu, adorable nice server....BUT the hostess needed to be asked a couple of times to seat us when we got there, even though it was obvious that my husband who is elderly and uses a cane needed a seat. Their policy is that all persons in your party need to be present to be seated, which I understand, but CLEARLY this was a case of someone who shouldn't be standing in a crowded bar. At first she suggested we wait outside where it wasn't crowded, which we tried to do, but there were 5 people outside the door smoking. Ugh.
The food was delicious, and the server was really great, but the noise level was intolerable. It was deafening. We were shouting at each other. We were there for a small family dinner (5), and it was my non-cranky young son (26 yr old), who finally suggested we hurry and finish dinner and grab dessert and coffee elsewhere, where we could actually have a conversation.
What a shame. It was so loud!!! Trust me, your ears will be assaulted.
So disappointing. They should do something about this.
We had dinner at 7PM on a Tuesday night. Never again.

We usually order delivery from Otto, but decided to have an in-restaurant meal there. The food is really very good, although the pizzas were less impressive than the pasta dishes, which are all wonderful. Service is attentive, and the selection of wines is amazing. Leave room for the wonderful gelato.
The pizza's and salads were delicious. ...
The pizza's and salads were delicious. The pasta's were too al dente. I read that they were al dente but it was extra crunchy. We saved room for the gelato and glad we did. Noise level where we were sitting was very loud. Almost too difficult to hear one another.
