    I had to go into my phone to pull up my account in their point system. The credit card I was using is registered under my name but I wasn’t given the $31 off my bill. The manager was very patient as a I retrieved the barcode connected to my account.

    Our appetizer was delivered to the wrong table, set down before other diners and then delivered to us. The server had to ask which of the 2 entrees went to who. The fettuccine bolognese was sub-par (I've had it 2x before). It was way over-sauced and resembled a big blob of something foul. Since this was our first bad experience at this restaurant, we will come back, at least one more time, but I do not feel I can recommend it to friends until I feel confident that things have returned to former excellence.

    Overall it was good, but as others have alluded to the Specials are in the $45-$50 range while everything else on the menu is more in the $25-$30 range. Was shocked to see our bill after ordering specials compared with the rest of the menu. Would go back as many items on the menu I’d like to try.

    Very overpriced. The special entrees were $47 each, the hors d'oeuvres were $19 each. Nice place, but not worth those prices. Too noisy to justify the prices of a luxury restaurant.

    Took out of town friends to Otto by Polpo on a quiet Monday night. As usual, food was just excellent. (Carbonara, Veal, Linguini with Clams, Halibut plus calamari. and salads to start. Service was attentive and professional and everything was just fabulous. Highly recommend as a place for a special evening or just a nice night out with your honey.

    A lovely find, and not a single weak note anywhere. Our server, Franklin, was excellent, engaged and spot on. Descriptions of the specials were so wonderful, bot couples ended up ordering only specials, and actually had exactly the same order. Food was excellent across the board!! An inventive pasta special, well-sauced, and ingredients were done properly---hard not to overcook shrimp in a saute sauce dish. The Osso Bucco was fabulous---this dish was my father's favorite, so it is a 'tell' for me to rate a restaurant. Otto by Polpo did it very well. Portions were large and we brought home enough for lunch. Tiramisu was outstanding!

    Suggest asking how much specials cost, or better yet restaurant should simply tell you. Our two entrees off the menu were $27 each. Two specials we learned when we got the bill were $47 each. Yikes!

    We went here for lunch on the day after Christmas. The food was great - we started with the Burrata appetizer that was perfect for two people. Our entrees were the shrimp risotto and the crab gnocchi. The risotto was a little better than than the gnocchi which probably could have had more flavor and the sauce was very heavy, but I still enjoyed it. Our server was fantastic - she knew exactly when to check on us. We ate inside and the ambiance was really nice. It was a Monday lunch on the day after Christmas, so it was pretty empty but would love to check it out again when it's more lively. Also note that this is a BYOB. I read the reviews beforehand, so I knew to bring a bottle, but the website does not mention it.

    We dined as a party of 7 on Christmas Day and everything was wonderful! We are regulars at Otto, and our family enjoyed it just as much as we always do. Our server, Tini, was friendly, attentive and kept our attention with a few jokes here and there. We shared 2 burrata appetizers and one guest ordered the lobster bisque special - all amazing! For entrees, 4 of us had veal (2 piccata, 1 francese, 1 veal chop); 1 had a crab pasta dish; and 2 had the pasta special. Everything was fresh, delicious and piping hot. We did not order desserts or coffee, as we planned to have them at home. This was our second year dining at Otto on Christmas and we were not disappointed! Great experience.
