Otto Ristorante

Italian in Kings Cross & Potts Point

Forget the glamorous waterfront location and the A-list crowd – Otto will be remembered for single-handedly dragging Sydney’s Italian cooking into the new century with dishes such as artisanal strozzapreti pasta with fresh Yamba prawns, tomato and black olives. Its opening hours mean you can often grab a table here on spec mid-afternoon, but booking at mealtimes is essential.
