We read the reviews and had to try it for ourselves. We are from east coast cities (Phila, Boston, NYC) and enjoy a good delicious, gourmet pizza. They do it right! Even the margherita was delicious. Especially loved the eggplant/ricotta. Importantly, the service was extremely kind and friendly, patient, and let us sit and enjoy for longer after we finished... More

My fiancé and I stopped in OTTO's for lunch and saw they had a M-F lunch special. For $10 you can pick a slice of pizza, salad, and a drink. I initially thought this was a little high because I assumed the salad was a regular garden salad but you can actually pick whatever salad you want on the menu!... More

Glad they were still open so I could get a quick bite to eat. The broccoli rabe and sausage pizza was really good. That is normally one of my favorite pasta dish, so it was great to have that on my pizza.

Otto's is kind of small but has a great little pub atmosphere. The pizza was absolutely delicious and well worth the stop. You can get it by the slice or a 12" and 16" whole pizza. Some great local craft beer on tap to go with the pie. Service was very friendly and helpful.

I love pizza and cool old buildings so Otto's was a perfect place for lunch in Portland before our flight home from Maine. Don't be afraid of the "crazy" toppings they are delicious. But if you are more a plain cheese or pepperoni person, they have those too. Service was friendly and efficient even though just one guy was running... More

Chose their famous mashed potato, bacon and scallion pizza and glad we did. Different and... More

All the pizzas are great and, important to my wife, the gluten free is the best we have ever had. Whether you order by the piece or enjoy a full pie, you will be well pleased with your order. The meatballs aren't gluten free, but unless you are gluten intolerant, don't pass ordering some as an appetizer. Service was superb!... More

Visited Otto for lunch and REALLY enjoyed the experience. To begin with, we were greeted at the door before we even went in the door. The gentleman explained where we could sit, full service vs quick slice, or seating outside vs. Inside. Prompt service, server was excellent too. The Chopped BLT salad was awesome and the buttermilk dressing with blue... More

You've had one pizza, you've had them all, right? Not so! We had the cranberry, butternut squash and ricotta cheese pie, along with the chicken, sriracha and avocado pie. We both were so surprised by the first pie, which we almost didn't get, that I'd come back again to get it all over again! We didn't get their most popular... More
