Update: Feeding the Frontline Workers

We cannot thank our customers, communities and folks who have supported this initiative enough. This campaign has been a great demonstration on how communities hold each other up and work together during uncertain times.

Through the support of our OTTO community, we’ve provided:

  • Meals to 37 frontline facilities
  • Over 500 pizzas delivered
  • Over $12,000 in food and beverages
  • Nourishment for hundreds of frontline workers including hospital employees, community health center employees, first responders, and homeless/teen center staff to name a few

If you’re interested in supporting our Feeding the Frontline campaign, click here to contribute. We’ve also added a contribution option to our online ordering pages. You can now order a meal and contribute to Feed the Frontline in the same transaction!

Weekly Community Delivery

We are now offering weekly community delivery in towns beyond our normal delivery radiuses. Our current schedule includes:

  • Chebeague Island, ME – Wednesday
  • Gorham, ME – Wednesday
  • Windham, ME – Thursday
  • Peaks Island, ME – Friday

If there’s an interest from 10 or more families in your neighborhood, we will coordinate a weekly delivery to bring our pizzas, salads, beer & wine, and more to a designated pick-up location. Our pizzas can be delivered fully cooked or par-baked to be finished in your oven at home. Prepay ahead of time to limit contact upon delivery and enjoy your pizza at home.

Email erikm@ottoportland.com if you are interested in adding your town to our new community pizza delivery program. If you live in one of the four towns listed above, and are interested in ordering, please email benc@ottoportland.com for details.

OTTO South Boston opens Monday, March 2nd

OTTO’s new South Boston location will have its grand opening on Monday, March 2nd.  

Located at 416 W Broadway in the vibrant South Boston neighborhood, this brand new location will be the first OTTO to feature a “mobile pickup” option, allowing customers to order any menu item (including single slices, whole pies, salads, apps, desserts, and beverages) and skip the wait entirely.  

Nestled just behind Caffe Nero and across from Lincoln Tavern and Restaurant, this location will provide South Bostonians quick and convenient access to the “Best Pizza by the Slice” (Yankee Magazine) and one of “The Greatest Pizzas in the USA” (Food Network).

In addition to takeout service, OTTO Southie will feature a slice counter, indoor seating, and catering services. OTTO looks forward to becoming a part of the growing, vibrant South Boston neighborhood, and working with local community organizations as part of our ongoing ‘Good Food, Good Causes’ fundraising program. 

OTTO Southie is OTTO’s eighth outpost in Massachusetts (coming on the heels of OTTO’s first airport location, at Boston Logan International), and 15th location overall. 

Open Sunday through Thursday from 11am-12am and Friday-Saturday from 11am-1am.  Entrance is on F Street, directly behind Caffe Nero, and across the street from Loco Taqueria and Oyster Bar. 

OTTO wins ‘Best Pizza – Gourmet’ in Boston A-List Awards

VotingPlatformLogoWe 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!
