Brad Otton is owner and operator of Settebello Pizzeria with locations in Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and a third location in Pasadena set to open later this year (2011).
Brad attended USC where he was the starting quarterback and led the Trojans to the 1996 Rose Bowl Championship. After a brief career in the NFL and coaching at the collegiate level, Brad decided the time was right to open a pizzeria. Brad and his family went to Naples to learn the art of pizza-making with recowned pizziaolo Enzo Coccia of La Notizia. He returned to Las Vegas and opened Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana in 2005. Along with partners Michael Brooks and brother Tim Otton, he opened Settebello Salt Lake City in 2007.
