Otto Enoteca Pizzeria

Otto! Mario Batali’s enoteca pizzeria was a disappointment. The wine list impressed, the pizzas did not. Though the crust was great, their margarita and marinara sauces were not speaking Italian. Thick, but sweet and lacked flavours. I actually tried making marinara sauce at home last week and I must say that was tastier than this.

That being said, the place has a chatty vibe to it and you can certainly pay a visit for good times with friends and family. The decor is bright red walls and great.  Good for groups.


Babbo better step up.

I’ll say the place is an eat.

    Agree with your assessment. I took a group of my three out of town girlfriends there a while back and the food was extremely underwhelming. The atmosphere is fun, so it is a shame. On the other hand, in Batali’s defense, all the food I’ve had at Eataly has been pretty awesome. Check it out if you haven’t been there yet.

    Crankydem! Agree with you on Eataly. I’ve been to Le Verdure twice and was delighted by their vegetable plates.
