Since 2009 when we opened our first slice shop on Congress Street in downtown Portland, we’ve been striving to elevate the pizza experience. It starts with the ingredients – high quality, local when possible – and the toppings – creative and comforting. Mashed potatoes? Tortellini? Cranberries on a pizza? These are just a few of the things we tried – and they worked. “The Masher” with mashed potato, scallion, and bacon is one of our most popular pies. And people thought it was weird when we first put it on the menu.

Making simple food isn’t easy. We are continuously working to make sure every pizza is perfect and every slice unforgettable. Whether it be from one of our slice counters, or in one of our full service dining rooms, every member of our team is motivated by this goal of consistently well-executed, uncomplicated food.

I frequent the portsmouth NH location and ordered online - like a moron, I didn’t check which location and it sent to the Portland one!After arriving to pick up in Portsmouth and realized my mistake I called Portland and they couldn’t have been nicer. They provided me with a refund no questions asked and I was able to order from the portsmouth location. Still ended up with great pizza!

We both loved our pizzas. The Gluten-free one was quite tasty and the hubby loved his.

I shared the best pizza with my sister. The person who served us was super nice to us. We had a great time, and we were perfectly full. We had pepperoni 🍕,Caeser salad 🥗, and spinach and roasted garlic pizza. Delish! Perfect variety for dinner.

Stumbled on this place because I was looking for vegan options. The pizza was delicious! The crust was so good.

The pizza is pretty good and the staff was friendly and helpful. It was not very busy so the pizzas came out fairly quick. There are many topping options available to cover almost everyone's needs.

We grabbed a slice of pepperoni in our way back to our hotel.The slice was great. The sauce was tangy and flavorful. The crust was a perfect balance of crisp and chewiness.

Really solid meal. Super friendly server. We went with the Double Dough pizza and enjoyed it. Would go again.
Came here the other night for dinner of 3. The pizza had very unique toppings and they were worth the combination. We all ordered 3 mini pizzas, one butternut squash, ricotta and cranberry, another fresh mushroom, manchego and herb and the last half pulled pork and mango and the other half mashed potato, bacon and scallion. The pulled pork and mango was wonderful, but the meat was lacking flavour. The mashed potato, bacon and scallion was very comforting and had a bit of warm spice. However, I feel like it could've used a bit of crunch. The one with squash was very autumnal and also comforting, and was perfect for a cosy evening. If you're in or around Portland, come here for some of the best tasting and creative pizza I've ever had!

Very tasty- we had the meaty pizza, the spinach and artichoke, and the potato, scallion and bacon pizza. They were DELICIOUS 🤤 My son got the personal pizza as well, and it was quite filling.

Cute little pizza place with three different locations in Portland. Their variety of pizza choices is awesome and it was delicious. They also have gluten free pizza that was pretty good.

If you venture into Portland, Otto is a must stop. Bartender was fantastic. Pizza was out of this world, and the experience was memorable. It is a little bit of a walk from Old Port, (10 mins), but don't worry, you won't be disappointed.

The buffalo cauliflower worked better than the mushroom pie, which was pretty bland.
Otto has been a favorite of our since we first visited the original location on Congress Street years ago. We have now visited 4 of their sites and the pizza is universally fine. Some of them strike you first as being way out there, but once you taste them you can see the benefits of mixing non-traditional food items on good pizza crust. Our waitress this time was so friendly and very expressive - we speculated that she was an actress, but no, just a very animated young woman. One of the chefs came to the table to ask us if an unusual cheese variety was acceptable to us, very considerate. Our Caesar salad easily fed the two of us as a complement to our pizza.
Great pizza and beer! Very friendly staff!Update: Since I have the #1 photo for this location, obviously I had to visit again while in Portland on September 18, 2022! I was not disappointed. The pizza was still awesome and our waitress was so sweet and attentive. I wish I had gotten her name. I highly recommend this location. After eating pizza here, walk up to the Portland Observatory. The views are beautiful.

I guess they are know for their mash potato pizza. I had it as a slice in the evening and it was clearly old but I could tell the mashed potato would make a creamy and delicious fresh pizza. We ordered the 4 cheese. It was thin and incredibly full of flavor. The pockets of ricotta spread across the top were fantastic. I also recommend the house made ranch dressing which is delicious and creamy. Staff was more than kind and helpful. So good!

Friendly server. But what pizza joint runs out of large pizzas on Sunday night? That’s ok, the small was fine. Very utilitarian seating and ambience but the pizza wasn’t bad and wasn’t expensive.

The crust here is so good! They also can use Violife vegan cheese and it is so melty and gooey. I really liked the fresh mushroom and cauliflower pizza. It had a nice laid back, almost hole-in-the-wall kind of atmosphere. I was surprised to find out it was a chain!
