I will seriously question your integrity as a human if you don't stop here and eat while you are in Portland, Maine. I would break down in distress and question the well being of your great grandchildren who are not even born yet if you don't eat pizza from here. I would be concerned with your day to day routine,... More

The locals rave about it. I found it average. I would eat it again, but I wouldn't go out of my way. The service was great, and the beer goo too. But, it's a pizza place after all. Disclaimer: I am a NY pizza lover and pizza snob. So, keep that in mind.

I loved this place. It is really cozy, pizza is great (they have crazy variety and toppings) and the service is really good. Shout out to Justin, he gives such and nice service, and the manager (i think his name is Brandon) who told me about the place! I am a margarita lover, so i had a small one just... More

Otto perfects the pizza to another level with its unique toppings as well as executing delicious basic pizza slices. The sauce is exemplary, quality ingredients and toppings; the crust is crisp and delicious and the slices large. Worth a visit and many return visits!!

Otto is small and very cozy. The exposed brick walls and wood floors, along with the pizza oven give the place a lot of warmth. But of course, the pizza is the star. It begins with the crust -- I believe it was the best pizza crust I've ever eaten and I'm very particular about the crust. It was crispy... More

We got a slice of the mashed potato, bacon, and scallion pizza as an "appetizer" before our sausage and vidalia onion pizza came out. Both were top notch. They have local beers to wash it down, too. It was a little expensive for pizza, but we had to try it because we love the name!

We heard about the pizza at Otto and had to try it. We called at 11pm on a Sunday to check and see if they were still open (states 12 am on website) and they were. We told them we would call them right back to place our order. Less than 10 minutes later, we called back and tried to... More

Great for a slice or two (they are BIG slices!) and a salad and enjoy beer or wine while you wait or if you are eating in the very cozy bar. The pizzas are a fabulous array of combos, never too much sauce or cheese! Yum!
