We just worked out and were in need of food. Walking down Congress we saw a ton of sushi places but we were craving carbs. The delicious smell of pie wafted by us as we strolled near the front entrance and that was enough, we...More

The wife and I stopped in for a few slices on a particularly hot day. They quickly got us some frosty pints and menus. They have unusual toppings but we decided to go with what was recommended to us--the mashed potato bacon and the pear...More

We ordered delivery and it was very good pizza. The dough was thin and crispy. I would guess that in their location is going to be a lot better.

Ottos has to be one of my favorite Maine based pizza joints. They have some really unique styles when it comes to topping combinations and they are often a huge success at least in my opinion. Its hard not to like the baked potato pizza...More

First time visiting Otto even though there are a couple around Boston. Great pizza - the restaurant was rather small, which was a little tight. Service was good and it's a friendly environment. If you like Pizza - you gotta try them out.

Not really sure if they have a happy hour. It is more of a casual pizza place than a Bar.
