Otto Enoteca Pizzeria, New York, NY

Otto Enoteca Pizzeria Restaurant Review

: From Mario Batali, the Food Network face who brought us Babbo, comes Otto Enoteca Pizzeria and its whistle stop tour of Italian favorites. Located in Greenwich Village near the main campus of NYU, this large restaurant is a good place for business lunches. Start off with antipasti like anchovies with breadcrumbs and scallions or eggplant caponatina. Continue with classic pastas or thin-crusted pizzas such as the Vongole with clams, chiles, garlic and mozzarella. For dessert, opt for the gelati and sorbetti, which come in interesting flavors like olive oil, crème fraîche and Concord grape. If you can grab a spot in the large front bar area, dine on antipasti there while you enjoy a quartino (quarter bottle) from a nice selection of Italian wines.
