At OTTO, guests can enjoy classic Italian food and sample wines from a list that includes up to 800 bottles.
Our classic pizzas like Margherita DOP or Pepperoni, made with our house-made spicy salumi, always hit the proverbial spot and our original OTTO pizzas like Otto Lardo or Funghi and Tallegio continually excite. Cooked on a flatiron griddle, our thin crust is lightly charred and supremely crisp.
Our famous house-cured meats and olives and our artisinal cheeses are delicious and great for sharing. Bright and beautiful antipasti, served in ceramic ramekins inside OTTO's signature pizza trays, are good as a snack or as a full meal if you order them all...well, most of them, as there are usually at least twenty. Our signature pasta dishes like Pasta alla Norma with juicy eggplant and creamy buffalo ricotta are outstanding and dressed simply, just like in Italy's best osterie.
For dessert, OTTO's gelato is some of the best in New York City. Pastry chef Meredith Kutzman hand-makes her original and seasonal flavors like Olive Oil and Hazelnut Straccietella in house everyday. Whether she infuses the base with fresh fruit, mint, or chocolate, the pure essence of each flavor transcends itself as it transforms into a smooth, creamy treat.
