Those cockroaches? They're... uh... just a topping.

The New York Post reports (registration required) that Mario Batali's Otto scored a "below average" rating for health code violations recently.

Ryan Tarpey, general manager of celebrity chef Mario Batali's Fifth Avenue pizza emporium Otto, said he was not surprised when a health inspector hit the joint with a below-average score of 21 after spending four hours nosing around last October.

"You look hard enough, you can find anything," said Tarpey, who said Otto fixed the cited violations.
