They've been filling Sydneysiders' stomachs with amazing Italian meals for years, but it seems Otto Ristorante seek more northern palates. After conquering the New South Wales fine dining scene, the Woolloomooloo mainstay has expanded to Brisbane.
Opening yesterday, Tuesday, June 15, at 480 Queen Street, Otto's appearance means you can try the eatery's modern take on Italian classics — and no, we're not just talking about the usual pizza and pasta set-up. Instead, you'll find Byron Bay Berkshire pork cutlets, eggplant parmigiana and butterflied spatchcock on the menu, plus a seven-dish tasting menu with optional matching beverages.
Okay, so that all sounds good and delicious, but whether you eat meat or avoid it, your salivating is only beginning. Otto's signature whole roasted suckling pig for eight will keep the former satisfied, while their new vegan lineup caters for the latter. And there's a mighty nice wine list to go along with both, naturally.
That's the food and drink side of the equation covered; however Otto isn't just about consuming scrumptious things. Setting up shop on the fourth level of one the Brissie CBD's most-awaited developments, it also features an exterior bar with killer river views, and access to the building's high-rise park.
