Otto Enoteca Pizzeria

When your Italian city is on the board, your table is ready!

Kelly lovvvvvved her pizza.

Quattro Formaggi pizza.......really good

Margherita Pizza......basic but delicious.

Yes, there is a fried egg on top of that pizza, and it's realllllllllly good.

I've been wanting to go to Mario Batali's Otto for a while now. I've been to Mozza in LA and absolutely loved it. I also went to Tarry Lodge in Port Chester and was pretty happy, so I had high expectations for Otto. We finally had the chance and we were not disappointed. Plus, they had a really cool system for letting you know when your table is ready. You get a card withan Italian city on it and then the board (that's like they have at the train stations) flips (with a really cool noise) to your city and time when your table is ready. A nice European touch.

Kelly and I went with another friend, so we decided to get three different pizzas so we could all try different pies. We ordered the Margherita, the Quattro Formaggi, and the one with the fried egg on top called Pane Frattau. You may wonder why on earth I would agree to the egg pizza and you would be justified in your wonderings. However, it was, quite simply, amazing. There's something about the runny yolk and the yummy sauce and crispy crust that makes this pizza absolutely crave-able. I am constantly thinking about when I can go back and get it again. In fact, maybe this weekend. But anyways. The other two were great as well, but the stand out pizza was the Pane Frattau. All three had crispy, salty, chewy crusts. The sauce was a bit tangy in a really positive way. But did I mention how good the fried egg pizza was? Go and get it....but make your reservation plenty ahead of time because they are booked solid!
