“Very Greasy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

We got pepperoni and cheese. It was supposed to be extra cheese, but either someone messed up or they only put a tiny bit of cheese on the regular pizzas. The oven fired thin crust was nice. They also sell it by the slice. The ones that are by the slice sit out by the register uncovered and then when you order, they grab it and put it into the oven. We saw flies in the restaurant, but did not see one get onto the slices. The website photos are very misleading because ours was extremely greasy.

“Impressive stylish and healful pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Otto's of Porland (Maine) created a stir in its hometown and now here, with relatively thin-crust, non-oily pizzas with stellar ingredients nicely prepared. I rarely eat pizza because of the excess oil and cheese that accompanies and smothers most pizza, but Otto's is the exception and exceptional.

“delicious pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

great toppings. Some that you may think do not seem like toppings for pizza but really are yummy. My favorite is mashed potato, scallions and bacon.

“Great gluten free pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Stopped here on the offchance. Had nice drinks at the bar (cranberry cider, really nice), then we had four different pizzas. The girls had large slices, boys had whole pizzas (mine gluten free). All delicious. It was buzzy but we were not hurried by charming staff.
