Open mic Mondays for Bluegrass Music! Excellent pizza - something different and tasty about the red sauce.

We were visiting Portland from out of town and our friends ordered Otto's for us. It was great thin crust pizza. Not much more to say about it than that but I would order from there again if we were in Portland.

Whether your dining at one of the two locations in Portland or enjoying a pizza at the BU location in Boston...Otto's pizza is superb.

The unique recipes on top of a perfect basic formula make this the undisputed best pizza in the state of Maine. There is always a small selection of tasty craft beer on tap and you can choose slices or one Otto's whole pies. If you are looking for a more traditional pizza experience you'll have to look elsewhere. Downsides: No... More

We stopped here for dinner on Sunday night. The servers were very friendly. My boyfriend and I got the mushroom, bacon, vidalia onion pizza and really enjoyed it. Would've gotten the large if we had known the size of the pizza, as I think my boyfriend was still hungry. Our girls split the margherita pizza. They didn't love it because... More

Stopped here for lunch in July 2014. Entire family agreed that this was better pizza than we had in Rome, Florence, and Venice on a trip last year. We had a sausage and pepperoni and the special with spicy pulled pork. Both were excellent. The place is small with only a few tables but it is worth the wait. Service... More

Wow! With so many pizza places around, it's hard to find one that stands out. My family and I came for an early dinner, and did not leave disappointed. We had the chicken and basil and mashed potato pizzas, and they were delicious! Perfect thin crust and flavors. Our service was great and the manager Vinny even came over to... More

Fresh atmosphere. Can get noisy and packed, but this place has such a great combination of pizza and drink that you'll not regret the traffic. Seating isn't aimed at comfort. Best pizza downtown.

I ate dinner here while staying in Portland for dissertation research. I came recommended by the staff at the Maine Historical Society, so I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed in the food or the service. The seating / set up is a little odd. The restaurant is literally split into three separate areas that are... More
