If I knew I could only eat one more meal before I passed, I would go to Ottimo. The Chef is absolutely amazing. My favorites are the Pollo Picante and the homemade pastas. The atmosphere is wonderful - small, quiet setting. Easy to have a conversation with your friends. I worked in Italy for nearly two years - have travelled all over Europe - and this is my favorite place on earth.

pastas are $25-30 each. they taste ok - not great, just ok. perhaps $10-15 worth.

I've been to Ottimo four times now, and can't wait to go again. The food is great, especially the fresh pasta, and the service is excellent. Try the grilled eggplant salad it's a very good.

We have lived in Chelsea for two years and have never noticed this restaurant. The food is authentic Italian - delicious! Pizza is terrific, as is homemade pasta. Ambience is delightful, service impeccable.

This is an amazing place nestled in between the Flatiron District and Chelsea...I've been looking a long time for great Italian food at not too expensive prices, and found it, the Veal Chop is OUT OF THIS WORLD...the ambience is Old World Italian and the Chef and wife, who also owns the restaurant are friendly and personable...it's an amazing find and you will not be disappointed!

Went to Ottimo and was expecting outstanding pizza (as I love La Pizza Fresca). Was surprisingly disappointed. Pizza was a little soggy. Ravioli was good...but I have to say that I found everything a bit overpriced. Not enough wines by the glass either. Service, however, was excellent...and I liked the setting/atmosphere a lot. Food was just average...if they lowered the prices just a bit, it would be a bigger draw.

Pros: Romantic, Great service, Has character

Cons: Overpriced, Average food, Location

This place is wonderful. Excellent servers who are really Italian... and the homemade pasta is worth every penny!!! I haven't had ravioli that good since I was in Italy.

It's rare that I go to a new restaurant and want to come back the next day. The people at Ottimo made it their business to know who I was; considering that English is a second language at this restaurant, that was no easy task. They might not have remembered my name after the first visit, but they remembered my face. And by the third visit I felt like part of the family. The genuine atmosphere is a comfortable one. Great food, warm surroundings and charm all around. The food from the appetizers to the desserts, will make your mouth water as it is set down on the table and will make you moan after each bite. Why wouldn't you come back week after week?

Eating at Ottimo is like eating in Chef Salvatore Esposito's home. When he's not making authentic Neapolitan pizza in the open brick oven or lightly frying zucchini blossoms, he's visiting the regulars (a growing legion) and checking on newcomers. For years, I thought Tuscan cuisine was the best, but Salvatore converted me to the hearty Neapolitan fare on my first visit. His wife Tanya, the hostess, completes the comforting atmosphere by being delightfully warm and gracious. Great wine list, reasonably priced.--Sara Hart
