We can’t quite put our finger on what makes Otto look and feel particularly Italian. It could be the simple yet sophisticated vibe that Otto oozes; it’s designed to be a subtle space, making the most of the light its large street facing windows pull in, and the value of practical but elegant modern-vintage furniture. Combined with the scent of freshly baked pizza that you’ll pick up from the street, as well as its selection of deli products that line the walls, Otto feels genuine, homely and extremely welcoming.
Otto is all about the ‘za, serving delectable pizzas crafted with a balance of seasonal flavours and locally sourced ingredients. Whilst the menu changes often, you’ll usually find eight different pizzas to choose from with a simple selection of natural toppings. From bountiful vegetable choices, including marinated courgette, butter-braised spring onion, cherry tomato with Fivemiletown goat's cheese, to more meaty favourites such as nduja, chorizo, Hill Top Honey, and Mozzarella, there’s some gorgeous pizzas to pick from.
You’re going to want to order something from their mixed drinks selection. We like to keep things classic with an Aperol Spritz, but they also serve one of the best Negronis in town! And for after the meal? Well, let’s just say that the limoncello hits the spot.
If you stop by at lunchtime, you might be lucky enough to grab one of their sandwiches: in-house baked bread stuffed with the best local British and Italian ingredients, these mean business. We’ve managed to get our mitts on a few in our time, including a weighty filling of aubergine, caramalised onion, rocket and pickles.. They serve three different options a day with meaty and vegetarian options available. But don’t sleep on it - these fly fast!
Otto is an impressive destination that showcases everything pizza should be about: straight-forward, seasonal and inspired by local produce.
