Otto’s an artisanal pizza restaurant located in a nice spot near Westbourne Grove. The ambiance is very chill - wooden tables, exposed kitchen, soft lighting. The pizza’s made with a cornmeal base, a pretty novel idea that’s actually quite tasty. Their fig and bacon pizza is a real standout. The service is prompt and familiar. For a restaurant, the beer list is pretty decent by London standards. There’s 2 kegs (Brooklyn Lager & Blue Moon) and 6 bottled beers (including The Kernel!). It’s a small selection that won’t provide many new ticks, but it’s much better than the scores of other pizza places that only serve Peroni. The value’s quite good considering the quality of the food. Overall, London’s restaurants have yet to embrace quality beer. In that regard, this place is making baby steps in the right direction. Worth a stop for the pizza.
Great place. I’ve eaten here several times and taken away even more. The pizza is cornmeal-based, making it an interesting (and tasty) departure from standard dough pizza. And the ingredient choices range from the traditional to the quite exotic; all are delicous. The pizza is not cheap, and I’ll typically order two slices, which will run me about £7 or £8 (it’s highly artisanal and what have you). The beer range is short in size but long in quality, highlighted by their carrying The Kernel. A few other American beers are available, in addition to stuff from Europe. Bottom line, Otto is an awesome food place that has a few good beers.
