Pizzeria

Pizza is simple food. But it doesn’t have to be ordinary.
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.

                                                          At OTTO, each signature pie is uniquely composed, from its base to its seasonings. Due to the nature of the compositions, the following signature pie combinations are not available as 1/2 & 1/2 pies: Butternut Squash, Ricotta & Cranberry, Mashed Potato, Bacon & Scallion. We are happy to compose 1/2 & 1/2 pies featuring our less involved combinations - although for best results, we recommend two small pies instead

                                                            All pies available on gluten-free crust (with the exception of Three-Cheese Tortellini). OTTO's gluten-free options are appropriate for guests with mild gluten sensitivity. However, they are not recommended for guests with celiac disease. While the crust is prepared off-site in a 100% gluten-free production facility, current store operations cannot guarantee that each handmade pizza does not contain trace amounts of gluten

We started with the garlic bread, which could not have been better, followed by the spicy pulled pork, pepperoni, bacon, & sausage pizza which was so savory and delicious. It was my first time at Otto and I look forward to returning.

                                                              First disappointing experience at Otto. Pizza has shrunk! Both in size and the crust is almost invisible. Even more insulting is they will put extra crust for two dollars? Seriously! The flat bread as an appetizer for 7 dollars gives you a better product and more cheese and taste. Have been going to their Otto since it opened but really wish they will get back to making their original product.

                                                              Was sad to hear that Otto is cutting back on the ingredients, and selections, due to cost restrictions. I went to Otto this week, and the waitress shared this information with me. There is no longer a Greek salad selection because feta is apparently too expensive, and the Caesar salad only had a few drabs of Parmesan cheese. Also I ordered the three cheese tortellini, and it was literally one tortellini per slice of pizza. This is not the Otto that I remember. Kind of sad to see that it’s become just another corporate driven pizza enterprise. Will miss you Otto!

                                                              Hi Steven, thanks for the feedback. We're sorry to hear that your experience was not up to usual OTTO standards. While we do regularly make changes to our menu based on seasonal availability of ingredients, culinary trends, consumer preferences, and other factors, we do not eliminate items due to cost. We apologize for the lightly topped pie, but rest assured your description does not align with our portioning guidelines for this pie. We'll be reaching out directly to make this right for you.

                                                              We are very fond of Otto's being very different from other pizza places. There are so many good choices and the option of red or white sauces. Having wine and beer is great. Being able to reserve is a good idea instead of waiting on line in a doorway. The system works well, we have never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes

                                                              They accommodated three families with three toddlers needing highchairs, which was great. I wish more waiters would receive some training on how NOT to put a piping hot pizza directly in front of a toddler/baby/young child, but that goes for everywhere not just here. Their pizza is delicious and a little bit pricey. They ran out of a couple of the beers I wanted to try and it was only 5:30 pm, but that's not a huge deal because they have a decent list. Overall we had a great time!

The service was great and staff was very accommodating to our party that had multiple questions and several people with dietary restrictions, and the food was delicious. Great night.
