With at least 3 locations in Portland, it's easy to find an Otto's. Just last weekend, we were looking for a quick bite -- we stopped in the Congress Street place. We sat at the bar and the bartender greeted us like old friends. Very welcoming. We each had a slice and a salad and we could hardly finish them.... More

Pizza combinations out of this world good. Couldn't ask for a better thin-crust pizza. Easily #1 in Portland !!! Fast, reasonable slabs of real pizza

The mashed potato and scallion pizza sounds marginal and perhaps "interesting" but truly is phenomenal. It's non-traditional and very tasty. It has bacon (and I think cream) as well as cheese and it is like comfort-food pizza. My coworkers all love it as well. A slice is enough for me, a great inexpensive quick lunch, eat in or out.

This pizza was amazing! My friends and I went in for a late lunch and we immediately were able to sit anywhere. There are two different rooms to sit in and both are great. My friends and I placed our order. Our server was nice and helpful. Our food came out quickly. The pizza hit the spot so much! It... More

in Portland for the weekend and after checking into our B&B we headed out for an early bite to eat. Decided on pizza & beer and based on tripadvisor reviews decided on Otto. Great choices of not so ordinary combinations. Decided on mashed potato, bacon & chives, and a cold beer. Great pizza that really hit the spot. Staff was... More

Wow, I have to say that I am more than impressed with this pizza place. Pickled onions, pulled pork, thin and awesome crust, kalamata olives, and more ingredients than one can imagine. The staff was amazing and took the time to go over each ingredient and make sure I had exactly what I wanted. I will continue to be a... More

Pizza is simple, yet so many places muck it up.......not Otto's! Their pizza is the best, in my humble opinion. Perfect crust, not to doughy or rock hard, but a crisp flavourful crust that I noticed is rarely left on plates. Superb tomato sauce, not too sweet but perfectly spiced. They have many different specials by the slice for you... More

I've had other flavors too, but I always come back to the potato bacon pizza... so good... there are several good pizza places in town (Anthony's, Flatbread) but Otto's is our family's favorite.
