From Celebrity Chef Mario Battali and Wine Guru Joseph Bastianich, Otto Enoteca Pizzeria offers classic Italian favorites and excellent wine options. Located in the Grand Canal Shoppes, the Enoteca is a casual, comfortable place to dine, full of vibrant energy overlooking St. Mark's Square.
For wine, try one of their 100 bottles under $100. If you'd like to try several different wines, try a glass or two from their Enomatic wine system, which is served in by-the-ounce pours.
For food, a wide variety of mix-and-match hot and cold antipasti such as gnocci fritto, calzones, vegetables, salads and cured meats are served. There is also a fantastic pizza and menu with options like quattro formaggi (four cheese) pizza and spaghettini with mushrooms, garlic and thyme.
This casual-dining restaurant is a great place to grab a nosh, a glass of wine and enjoy the la dolce vita.
