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

I've had pizza from all over America and this was hands down my favorite. Unique flavors and good service. The butternut squash, cranberry, ricotta pizza was AMAZING!

I discovered Otto last year when I was wandering around Portland off of a cruise ship and found myself back in the same area a year on. When looking for a place to eat that was quite quick but still quality, I didn't hesitate to call up Otto. The chefs were friendly and the pizza is delicious. I highly recommend... More

Stopped in for a lunch bite passing through Portland on a rainy Wednesday - had a very nice server (Brooke) and were very pleased to learn they did slices so we could all try a different topping. The pulled pork and mango was tasty, and the mashed potato /bacon/scallion was a savory surprise. I loved that my mushroom/ricotta had herbed... More

Very interesting pizza choices- we had meatloaf and mashed potato. Interesting veggie choices as well. Service was quick and friendly- beer was cold and reasonably priced. Just a few doors down from Museum of Art so we were able to take a lunch break and then go back to see more of the museum

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

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.
