Friends and I stopped in here impromptu on a recent Saturday night about 9:30 pm for a slice of...... one side of the business was closed, while they slice shop and the other side was still seating customers. I can never recall the names of the attached restaurants location on either side of the slice shop. But that's where we... More

The pizzas are made with great fantasy. Nice atmosphere. Good beers. It's worth a visit if you're in Maine.

Otto's was amazing, being a pizza connoisseur my standards are high, (Pepe's in New Haven, CT if you need a benchmark) and Otto's pizza was exceptionally great. Fun little restaurant with great staff, recommend!

It's not often that we frequent Otto's usually because there is a queue waiting for tables in the Congress Street establishment. It must have been the Monday holiday because traffic was light on this day. We got to sit in one of the "piano" booths, enjoy a few local IPAs, and relish in their chicken and fresh basil pie. The...

We stopped here for lunch on our way into Portland. The mashed potato, scallion and bacon pizza was to die for. We also tried the mushroom and ricotta and the margherita pizza. Both were great but not as good as the mashed potato pizza. The staff was great, service top notch. Buying pizza by the slice lets you try several... More

I will seriously question your integrity as a human if you don't stop here and eat while you are in Portland, Maine. I would break down in distress and question the well being of your great grandchildren who are not even born yet if you don't eat pizza from here. I would be concerned with your day to day routine,... More

The locals rave about it. I found it average. I would eat it again, but I wouldn't go out of my way. The service was great, and the beer goo too. But, it's a pizza place after all. Disclaimer: I am a NY pizza lover and pizza snob. So, keep that in mind.

Thank Fred A
