The pizzas are genuinely terrific - thin crust with beautiful, fresh toppings and served piping hot. The salads were fresh and the homemade dressings were flavourful without being overpowering. The room is casual and there service was first-rate.

Visited Otto with a friend and was extremely impressed. Our pizza was great: sausage, onion and a lite red sauce. I certainly suggest it. The atmosphere was terrific, too. I just returned from Italy--this place is very much in line with top of the line pizza.

We stopped here for a quick bite after seeing the high reviews. Although the pizza was good, I didn't quite see the BIG fuss about it, as reviews had claimed. My husband got a slice of pepperoni pizza and (based on reviews and recommendation from our waitress) I got a slice of the mashed potato/bacon/scallion slice. The pizza slices were... More

I come from a town with many great pizza places so I'm a purist who hates bad pizza. Thank goodness for Otto! Great selection, cooked perfectly & served by a very friendly staff.

Great selection of pizza toppings - interesting flavors just go together and the crust is thinner which I like. Mashed potato and bacon is a must try. On nice days sit outside and also has inside seating.

We were cruising and found this place from Yelps so we gave it a try. It was a great decision that we ended up eating here again on the way back from Bar Harbor. It was crowded the 1st time due to right at dinner time. But there were enough seats at the bar so we sat there and have... More

Loved the pizza, really delicious but the service was terrible. Our waiter disappeared on us for long periods of time, had to get up and find him twice.

There were not very many people in the restaurant when we got there but we had to try it and see if the food was a good as their location in Brookline, MA....and it was. We order a pie of goat cheese and squash...it sort of tasted like Thanksgiving but it was amazing.

The ricotta, squash & cranberry pizza is absolutely my favorite pizza anywhere. Great little business in Portland, would highly recommend for a quick bite to eat!
