“Best pizza and ambience!”

Small but nice good drink choices, small bar, excellent pizza and service! Only down side was the heat from the kitchen came out to the eating area. And they deliver for free so if in a hotel...!

“Some of the best pizza I've ever had.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Recently I was in Portland with my girlfriend vacationing. The woman whom we were staying with recommended that we give Otto a try. It would have been stupid not to. It was delicious.
I usually don't get too picky with pizza. It serves it's purpose, right? It's pizza. It's cheesy, saucy, bready and makes you fat. But it's a nice little journey. Otto makes the journey even better. It was really delicious, but somehow I didn't feel an ounce of guilt over eating so much.
The inside of the place is really cozy. The music selection was good and our waitress was friendly and efficient. I'm going to have to give this place that "if I lived there, I'd be a regular" comment. It was very, very good. Oh, and they deliver! You are an idiot if you don't give it a try.

“Delicious pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I stopped by Otto's shortly after arriving in Portland, after reading reviews on TripAdvisor, and I was not disappointed! Excellent service and beer and pizza selection! Can order pizza by the pie, small and large, or some by the slice. The mashed potato bacon pizza is delicious!

“Great Pizza, good location and price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Stopped in for Sunday lunch and the pizza by the slice price was just right. Ordered two slices but they were so big could have probably done with just one. Good service and you can sit right on the street and people watch. Fun place to go with any age.

“Accidental pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We were wandering the streets of Portland and decided we needed a soda. We dropped into Otto's and there it was. Even though we just had lunch we ordered some slices anyway because of the smell. We were totally surprised by the quality and taste of the crust. Anyone can make a thin pizza but the quality of the crust makes it or breaks it. Sure it had toppings but that will have to be another review.

It is worth fighting your way through the downtown traffic.
