My wife and I were traveling back towards New Hampshire from Reid State Park and wanted to grab something to eat on way to Portland Head Light. We saw the reviews on trip advisor for Otto's and were excited to stop. We had a difficult time finding a parking place in downtown, but once we did we made our way... More

Ordered to go, loved all three pizzas we ordered! Pulled pork was the winner! Great customer service, fair prices!

You know how they always say "If you want to know the best spots in town, ask a local"? Well that's how I came upon Otto's. A local girl saw me seeming a bit lost as I was doing the touristy thing and trying to walk the Freedom Trail. She asked if I needed directions and we got to chatting... More

Do yourself a favor and come into Otto day or night for a slice and a drink. It's the best place to meet friends, grab a bite before or after a show, or to have a date. The pizza is excellent, creative, and original. The staff is extremely cool and friendly. This place is so Portland it's not even funny.

We had the pulled pork and mango as well as the mashed potato, bacon and scallion. They were both amazing! The potato was my favourite and I never would have tried it if the waitress hadn't told me it was one of their most popular. We will be back on our next trip to Portland.

This is one of the best pizzas I've ever had anywhere. I eat it every time it visit Portland. Light thin crust and delicious flavors. It also has a bar and it's a nice place to hang out on a Friday or Saturday night. It gets very busy and packed on first Friday Art walk. I love Otto's is a... More

We really enjoyed our pizza (with mashed potatoes : surprising, but excellent!) in this little restaurant. The atmosphere is really friendly!

While on a road trip I knew I wanted to stop in Portland, ME for lunch since none of us had ever been. I looked up places via trip advisor and found Otto. The pizza certainly does not disappoint, great variety, and nice atmosphere. I ordered 3 different slices of pizza so I could have a variety to try. I... More

This was simply the best Pizza I have ever eaten. The choice of toppings is unusual, but they work fabulously. If you go to Portland, you have to eat here at least once.
