Modeled after an Italian train station, Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich's OTTO is located on 8th Street, in the historic One Fifth Avenue building. Serving classic Italian pizzas and pastas, a large selection of house-cured meats, Italian and local cheeses, Artisanal Gelato, and boasting a 750+ all-Italian wine list, OTTO has become a destination for New York diners as well as a neighborhood hot spot.

"We had a pretty good sized group and had made reservations well in advance. When we all arrived, I informed the host, and he said we'd be seated momentarily. We closed out our bar tab and went to wait by the host stand. Ten minutes later, we were still standing there! There was no apology or explanation. We were finally seated and ordered a bottle of wine, but there was no wait staff to take our food orders. The wine came (thankfully) with bread but no olive oil. It was another 10-15 minutes (really!) before we flagged a waiter down to help us, after I complained to a manager. At that point things got better, but the great food was offset by our first half hour of being ignored. The food just isn't worth this kind of treatment, in my mind."
