We went to Otto's on a Monday evening and it was BUSY! We were told we couldn't have a table (4 of us) unless we ordered a whole pie, but since we were on a deadline (movie tickets at the theater across the street), we...More

Great beer and wine selection. Our waitress was great. She recommended that we try the mashed potato, bacon pizza. I was skeptical, but it was delicious. Would definitely go back

We had the special (white pizza with asparagus and gouda cheese). Amazing. They have such unique combinations.

I love thin crusted pizza and love Otto because the crust is yummy. MY favorite is the mashed potato and scallion pizza. You can split the pizza toppings. 1/2 one kind and 1/2 another kind. Attentive service. Popular so there is often a wait.

Our bartender was a little checked out but the food and drink was excellent. Great location and vibe, too.
