If you're looking for a fancy lunch, this is not the place. But if ultra thin crust pizza with fresh and exotic toppings appeals, Otto is the right choice! It isn't easy to find a pizza restaurant that makes really thin crust pizza in the U.S. - mostly it seems Americans prefer really thick and bready crust. Otto's pizza is... More

Killer pizza slices. Still one of my favorites of all pizza on the earth. Their spicy pulled pork and mango is the best slice I have ever tried, but they're all amazing!!!!

Well to start, you can smell the place at the bar adjacent to it. They all told me this is the best pizza in Portland, and the fact they're open til midnight just made it better. The staff are extremely friendly and personable, it reflects in the patrons at the restaurant as well. They have a little shop to get... More

Met friends for dinner at the Munjoy Hill Otto's, and weren't disappointed. Split 2 large pies (mashed potato, bacon, scallion & eggplant, ricotta, basil) between the 4 of us and, with a couple of Allagash brews, it was a satisfying experience. While pricy, the quality of the pies & ingredients is decent value. We left satisfied & happy. Looking forward... More

My husband and I stopped in at Otto's for a pizza lunch before the theater at Portland Stage Company which is just a half-block away. While the service was helpful and prompt and the pizza was good, it wasn't great. I think ordering a whole pie would work better than by the slice. We could tell that our slices had... More

Great pizza. The flavor combinations are amazing. Anything with potatoes or ricotta on it is ok with me!

We went here late at night with our kids after visiting the art museum. We were quite surprised by how good the pizza was! Our house salad was excellent and the mashed potato/bacon pizza was delicious! We bought cheese pizza for our kids which they were very happy with.
