About OTTO

OTTO celebrates people, place and la dolce vita. Situated in the spectacular surrounds of the Finger Wharf at Woolloomooloo, OTTO has an undeniable reputation as one of Sydney’s most respected dining institutions.

At the heart of the restaurant is old world hospitality and long-standing relationships held with a fiercely loyal clientele. Approachable yet refined service greets modern Italian cuisine, al fresco dining and trademark waterside views.

OTTO is the quintessential Sydney dining experience and has remained a local favourite for 22 years.

Meet The Team

Both OTTO and Fink are supported by a long-standing team of passionate executives and staff. With over two decades under its belt, OTTO remains one of Sydney’s most popular, successful and consistent performers.

Stefano Massasso

General Manager

Stefano was born in Piedmont to a long line of Italian winemakers. From a young age, he helped to run the family winery, Vigneti Brichet, developing his talent for hospitality and an open-door management style. After spending over a year in London at Westminster’s Cinnamon Club, Stefano returned to Italy to work in five-star hotels and Michelin Starred restaurant Locanda del Sant’Uffizio, before relocating to Australia in 2014. In the years since he has worked in a number of Sydney venues, including Glass Brasserie at the Hilton Hotel, Aqua Dining, and former Fink establishment The Bridge Room, and for five years was the Venue Manager of 360 Bar and Dining, STUDIO and Infinity at the  Sydney Tower. In 2022, Stefano became OTTO’s General Manager, where he enjoys the elegant yet relaxed dining atmosphere, and loves la bella vista of beautiful Woolloomooloo.

Richard Ptacnik

Head Chef

Richard Ptacnik is the Head Chef at OTTO Sydney, leading the team who day in, day out deliver the food that Sydney loves to eat at one of its most famous locations.

Richard joined OTTO in 2003, having worked with some of Europe’s great chefs in Berlin, Switzerland and his native Prague. He worked as James Kidman’s sous chef at OTTO for five years, before assuming the role of Head Chef in late 2009.

Richard’s food style is unashamedly simple – modern Italian with roots firmly placed in the classics. For many it has come to signify the quintessential Sydney cuisine; fresh, seasonal, produce-driven, sourcing the finest ingredients and letting them speak for themselves.

John Fink

Creative Director, Fink

John Fink is a restaurateur, a writer and a filmmaker. As Creative Director of Fink, John runs the family restaurant business with his father, long-time restaurateur, theatre-owner and hotelier Leon Fink.

Most days, John can be found at one of his restaurants, ensuring they retain their place as Sydney’s most loved dining establishments, or at the group’s head office in Surry Hills planning his next big thing, all the while keeping a watchful eye over the engine room of the business.

When he finds time, John also works on his personal slate of scripts and films, a passion and talent he undoubtedly inherited from his mother, the prominent Australian film producer Margaret Fink. At home in Clovelly, downtime is shared with his partner Estelle, and newborn son Elliott, tending to his vegetable garden and chooks, or cooking up a storm for one of his famous paella parties.
