Buy The Slice: Otto

Otto Enoteca
One Fifth Avenue
New York, NY 10003
Otto is a wine bar that successfully masquerades as a high-end pizzeria. Just beyond Otto's vaulted doors awaits a spacious dinning room that is eqipped with its very own salumeria.
The wine list is extensive to say the least, with over 750 different bottles of vino from all over Italy. The dinning menu is comparably well-versed in variety, offering numerous pasta, pizza, and gelato creations. The vibe is convivial and boisterous; the perfect place for a fun date, group gathering, or family outing.
How to order is up to you, but I suggest get several plates to share with the table, like Italian tapas. Whatever you do, make sure to save some room for dessert. Otto is renouned for their inventive gellato concoctions like the Olive Oil Coppetta --
Olive oil gelato, lime curd, concord grape sorbet, blood oranges, fennel brittle
