Otto or La Laterna Caffe

I am taking my fiance out for a nice inexpensive birthday dinner on Friday. Which option would you recommend between Otto or La Laterna Caffe?

  1. Otto. Save room for the olive oil gelato

    1. I haven't been to La Laterna, but Otto is great.

      1. Havenot been to La Laterna. Otto: food is fine for what it is, service excellent, nice vibe.

        1. Otto. I've been to both. (La Lanterna's savory menu isn't very good IMO.) But have a glass of grappa at La Lanterna after.

          1. I'd vote Otto, as well.We wrote about it this past week, in fact. Just be prepared for a long wait.
