An Otto Disappointment

Went to Otto today for lunch; my first visit there. Things were wonderful at the start with a friendly and helpful waiter and delicious antipasto. Severely downhill at the main course. My friend ordered a special which was linguine with clams and I can honestly say it was inedible. We had to send it back, which I have never done before. I love fish but the pasta had an odd fish-y taste to it (maybe clams went bad?) and it was incredibly overspiced. We sent it back and she ordered the carbonara as a replacement. This was OK but pretty underwhelming. The sauce was too thick and pasta was not delicate at all. My pizza was underwhelming as well. Anyone have a similar experience? I felt like I could have gotten a better Italian meal for half the price at hundreds of other places in the city. What a disappointment.
