Chef Mario Batali, known for his critically-acclaimed restaurant Babbo and his numerous appearances on the Food Network's Iron Chef: America, recently used some harsh language and accusations towards Otto Pizza in Portland through Twitter. Batali claims that the Portland based pizza joint stole their name from his Italian restaurant in NYC called Otto Enoteca Pizzera. Otto's owners (who recently opened up a location in Boston) deny any plagiarism and put forward a response. Read the response and Batali's original tweets at Boston Eater .
