Dining with modern Italian flavours and a Brisbane icon
Within the precincts of the Brisbane CBD is one of Brisbane's newest Italian Restaurant - Otto Ristorante. It is not your traditional Italian restaurant but it boasts the flavours of a modern Italy. It also has fabulous views of the Story Bridge. It is located on level 4, 480 Queen Street.

Fabulous views

We dined here last Saturday night to celebrate my husband's 50th. We had pre-ordered the set menu which featured a whole suckling pig. This was the highlight of the meal. It was not your usual Italian fare, but rather a very modern and up to date taste of Italy.

Our set menu at $90 per person, started with Marinated olives and capers with chilli, thyme and rosemary, along with Woodside goat's curd, truffle honey with thin, crispy bread.

OTTO has quite an extensive wine, beer and cocktail list to go along with their delicious looking al la carte menu. We choose a nice bottle of Shiraz to accompany our meal.

Nice drop of red

The main event was the Whole Roasted Macleay Valley suckling pig. It was shown to our table by the chef, whole, prior to being carved up and served with sides of potato purée, Brussel sprouts and Fennel, orange, radicchio salad.

To end our feast we indulged in Tiramisu with tea and coffee. Our waiter was a cheerful, fun guy who kept us informed, fed and our wine glasses topped up. The restaurant's atmosphere was lively, vibrant with all tables around us full. The decorations especially the light 'skirts' were certainly a talking point.

The food was truly delicious and our portion sizes were very generous ensuring that we were quite satisfied and extremely happy.

Happy faces

OTTO caters to all tastes with your more traditional Italian fare in their Al la Carte menu and tasting menu. They also have a separate Vegan menu for those who may be offended with our feast. They also advertise that they can do functions with a semi private dining area for those special occasions.

As one of our daughters commented that they would love to come back to try the other dishes on the menu, we would love to too. They are also opened for lunch during the week, only closed on Sunday.

OTTO ticked all of our boxes as a place to dine. View, location, taste, atmosphere and reasonably priced for those special occasions. Definitely a place to re-visit.
