Went to Ottos after reading these reviews. It didn’t disappoint. Terrific combinations of flavors. Chicken with caramelized pears and fontina. Not typical pizza. Many pies don’t have red sauce. Super thin crust. No Parmesan available. Not authentic pizza, rather a delicious twist. We sat on...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.

Visited Otto on 12/1, party of 6. We ordered 5 small pies, a little too much for 6 people but we all wanted to try different pies. Crowd favorite Mashed potato, Bacon & scallion.
