Otto Enoteca Pizzeria Ratings and Reviews

Dining experience got couple 3 star good reviews only because the bottom of my glass of water literally broke apart and spilled water all over me when i picked it up for a sip. wished they would have proactively offered a discount or complimentary something for the incident just out of courtesy. i did not make a scene of it or anything but sometimes its just the gesture that goes a long way. Outside of that little mishap, food was simple, well cooked, and very tasty so no complaints there.

It is a great restaurant and I have been a few time to the NYC and Vegas locations. The food is delicious and I love the atmosphere. Only downside is that the service is very rushed; I wouldn't come here for a leisurely meal.

Was expecting much more from a Batali owned restaurant. Food was average. Linguine puttanesca dish had no spice/heat. The dinner had 3 capers and the 2 or 3 kalamata olives that were flavorless believe it or not. Not sure how that happens. With the number of choices to dine in manhattan, Otto is just average. Cost is very inexpensive by manhattan standards but I was expecting to enjoy a more flavorful meal. Table of 5, pizza was good and "different" toppings were available but it wasn't quote unquote, great. It was good. If you want to hit a trendy spot with a family of preteens or young teens it won't cost you a fortune.

We had a party of 10--including 6 teenagers--and were dining after attending a show on Broadway. I was thrilled that Otto Enoteca took our reservation a few days in advance, and had our table ready after a very short wait. It's hard to find that accessibility in NYC when traveling with a large (and hangry) crowd. Appreciated that service very much. The food was outstanding, though wish I'd done some 'homework' ahead of time to really understand all of the good options. I felt like I didn't take full advantage of the menu--though our server was happy to answer any questions and helpful in recommending wine pairings from the extensive list. Food was absolutely delicious--fresh, healthy, and served with perfect timing. We never felt rushed, and enjoyed the lively ambiance very much. Also--an easy subway trip (N or R train to NYU/8th) from Broadway so a nice escape from serious overstimulation. Highly recommend.

I really wish this place were better because it's so convenient to me and I love the food. But the service is, at best, really meh. Requests for olive oil came unheeded. The server was not knowledgable about the menu when asked for recommendations. It wasn't busy - there was no excuse.

Reliable food here. Lovely anchovy appetizer, wonderful salads and pizzas, Pasta came overly sauced. Server was a pro, always available but un-intrusive and charming. The back room could use a refresh on the decor.

our favorite neighborhood go-to!!!! the best and freshest veggies, pizza's like from Italy and wonderful pasta's….only criticism…..some good lower priced wines. I lived in Italy and Calif, and there out there. Otherwise, this place is the real deal

Excellent value. We go here when visiting NYC with kids. Great wine list. Delicious pizza- had the special short-rib and fontina cheese pizza most recently- outstanding. I would have brought several home with me if I lived locally!

Incredible disappointment, pizza was cracker like ingredients miniscule and only in the center.
Cold appetizers were old and rubbery.
Served our prosecco in a large wine glass and it was flat
Waiter was annoyed he had to be there
Too bad it will be my last time there, it as disintegrated to a low level pizzeria that does not belong in NYC

Started off with a glass of wine at the bar while I waited for my party to arrive, older bartender was a bit too snooty, perhaps because I wasn't a regular...gasp!! He was noticeably rude to me but so much friendlier to the two next to me b/c they had been there before. Other staff, hostess, waitstaff, were fine and friendly. Food was very good, we ordered a few pizzas and pasta, and while portions were on the small side the quality was excellent. Had a great bottle of wine as well, one of my favorites, the Copertino Riserva. The dining room we were in was rather sterile, I prefer the bar area and next time will dine there.

We had lunch on Christmas Eve - the place was quiet (opera and classical), the food was great, and the staff was absolutely amazing - there when you need them, not there when you don't, informative without being snooty or over-the-top....
It was a great time.

This place was pretentious and rude. Our first encounter was at the bar to get a drink before the meal. We sat down at the bar and told the bartender we were waiting for our table so he didn't need to place any setting, but we would order a drink first. Then he intentionally ignored us for almost 20 minutes and when our table was ready you could see the frustration and anger when he took the plates away, even though we told him we wouldn't be eating at the bar. The only time I saw the waiter was when she took our order and then once she asked how we were doing, but she was gone before we could answer. I had to get the manager to take the credit card to pay. You are not allowed to alter the items on the menu at all, even if it just calls for leaving the cheese off the top. Unacceptable to me. The food itself was delicious and a great price, I just didn't understand why they were so difficult.

Graciously we were seated upon our arrival, even though we were about 25 minutes early. They were obviously very busy. The menu was exciting, and easy to navigate- this is including the wine list.
However, service could have been more attentive. Even on the busiest of nights, details such as explaining the dishes as they are presented rather than hastily dropping the plates than scurrying off, and having to ask for fresh cheese shaved on our pasta are basic steps of service that shouldn't be missed.
