Delicious! Loved the butternut squash pizza! Pizza available by the slice consisted of plain and ones with interesting combinations of flavors. Also, the salads are excellent and comprised of fresh ingredients..

This is very good thin crust pizza. I had the bacon, onion and mushroom, which was very tasty. There are some good beers on tap. It's a small, basic restaurant, but good atmosphere. Not fancy at all. If you're in the area and in the mood for pizza, this is a good choice.

When I first dined at Otto in 2012 this place was absolutely amazing. Now it is just a regular pizza place. The creative tasty toppings have been removed and replaced with thinly sliced vegetables and various "blobs" to give the illusion of flavor/texture.

Tasty wood fired pizza with interesting choices for meat eaters and vegetarians alike. They even have a slice or take out option. Nice little place in a town with a lot of options.

Amazing fantastic pizza with the best service how can you go wrong. We had a really great lunch and they are very attentive to allergies. The standout was the chicken, caramelized pears and fontina. Wtih all these fab choices it will take several visits to try everything we wanted to. Our cousin was right best pizza in Portland!

The mashed potato and bacon pizza was highly recommended by friends. It was tasty but not something I would order again. The sausage and onion pizza was outstanding - so flavorful and savory. Definitely a must do again. Restaurant was casual and a bit on the chilly side.
