What is it that makes Maine so special? Many point to its natural beauty, or the pioneering spirit of its people. Maine is a place where people work hard, fueled by a fierce independence and perseverance.
It’s a place where two guys frustrated by the uninspired state of pizza decided to put mashed potato on theirs in a tiny slice shop in 2009. It’s a place where another guy got tired of serving too many bad root beers in his restaurant, and set out to make his own. It’s a place where small ideas and a dogged pursuit of excellence have changed the way people think about food.
We’re proud to announce that OTTO is now serving Maine Root’s certified Fair Trade organically-sweetened sodas in every location in Maine and Massachusetts.
Try a Ginger Brew paired with our Pulled Pork & Mango, a Blueberry Soda with our Butternut Squash, Cranberry & Ricotta, or Mexicane Cola with our Chicken, Caramelized Pears & Fontina.
So many flavors to pair with so many flavors!
It’s a match made in Maine.
We were thrilled and humbled to learn today that OTTO was voted ‘Best Pizza’ in the ‘Gourmet’ category of the 2017 Boston A-List Awards, presented by WGBH. In addition to this honor, we placed third in the ‘Best Pizza – Slices’ category.
As an independent pizzeria born in Portland, ME just eight years ago, it means a lot to feel the Boston love. It’s been a short 6 years since we opened our shop in Harvard Square (our Coolidge Corner and BU locations opened within the next 12-18 months), and we are have enjoyed every minute of it. The people who make up these vibrant and engaged communities inspire us every single day.
With half of our shops, and half of our employees, rooted in Massachusetts, it truly is our other home. We love these communities, and we are so grateful that they seem to like us back.
Thank you, Boston!
We are pleased to announce that, after three weeks of closure due to water damage, our original shop at 576 Congress Street will re-open at 5pm on Friday, September 8!
Stop in for a quick slice to-go, join us in our full-service dining room (and bar), or lounge in our next-door sister bar, ENZO. (And enjoy outdoor dining while you still can!)
We appreciate the outpouring of support we received from the community (and beyond!) while we were recovering from the damage. We are so fortunate to be part of such a vibrant, diverse, and caring community — it reminds us why we do what we do.
We are so thrilled to be back, and we’d love to see you. Come on down!
Fall is in the air, and we can’t think of anything more inviting than enjoying locally distilled spirits and craft cocktails over a Mashed Potato, Bacon & Scallion pie in the cozy interior of Maine Craft Distilling‘s Public House in Freeport, Maine.
On Fridays, from 4-7pm and Saturdays from 12-7pm, OTTO will be on site, serving select signature pies freshly baked in the Public House’s 2nd floor kitchen.
The Maine Craft Distilling Public House is conveniently located in the historic Mallet building at 7 Mill Street on the edge of Freeport Village, between Old Navy and the Nordica Theater. There is plenty of parking located directly in front of the building.
Whether a respite from fall shopping, a pre- or post-movie noshing, or a night out in Freeport, we’ve got the bases covered.
Come on down to the house. We look forward to seeing you.
