I don’t think you can get a bad pizza here. I’ve had several different choices and highly recommend the mashed potato, bacon and scallion. Tonight it was chicken, caramelized pears and fontina; yummy with a nice thin crust. Local beers are available. Staff is efficient...More

Great food, great service but noisy. If you plan on coming to chat with friends be sure to turn up volume. Pizza was delicious and our service was great, just really noisy. Next time, will get the pizzas to go.

The pizza at Otto's is thin crust and very tasty. It is not overloaded or overly cheesy, but they have good flavor combinations. We had a pear & chicken that was excellent and the sausage, broccoli rabe and pepper had a nice wasabi-like heat to...More

OTTO continues to excel with the best pizza crust and different (mashed potato for one) pies as well as the standards (Margherita)- try them all if you have the chance. Best thing is you can try slices so you can determine which complete pie you...More

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