Thin crust, delicious pie. They have pretty unique topping pies, along with the standards. Parking is on street with metered options.

Perfect late lunch/early dinner spot for excellent pizza and a glass of wine. Love the patio to relax and watch the activity on Comm Ave. Good prices, quick service and chill atmosphere.

I really like Otto Pizza on Commonwealth Ave. Their pizza is the thin crust type, and it comes with interesting toppings. Every topping I’ve tried has been excellent, although my husband and I especially like the ricotta and basil. Salads are fresh and tasty as well. We’ve occasionally gotten a take-out pizza, but usually eat there. The dining room is... More

Amazing pizza with really cheap affordable pitcher of beer for students celebrating birthdays. Good pizzas with goat cheese as a topping.

Just had a simple cheese margaritta pizza to go here this week; i noted a mouthful of crust and not much in toppings volume. The pizza is not inexpensive either. With the plethora of new pizza places in Boston and nearby, Otto's will need to step up their game. I would think twice about returning here soon.

My daughter was at BU last summer and came home raving about Otto. I finally got to check it out with her and now I get it. It's delicious. I had the Butternut Squash, Ricotta & Cranberry pizza and it's perfect. The atmosphere if kind of funky and cool and the service was good but it's the pizza with the... More

This is a great alternative to the always-crowded Coolidge Corner location. Excellent gourmet pizzas with a wide variety of toppings. Mostly white style (no tomato sauce). Eggplants, caramelized onions, bacon, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and many more options. Can order simpler things like basic pepperoni for kids. Small pizza serves two (middle-aged) people nicely (or one teenager) A wide variety of... More

What an interesting concept on a pizza menu. I saw the menu offering meatloaf and mashed potato pizza, carmelized pears, and others I don't remember, but this place has raved reviews. I opted for the chicken and basil which was delicious. I also love a good cider and the Cranberry Apple cider was delish. If I ever come back to... More

Traveled to Boston last night and spotted Otto at 88 Com Ave while battling traffic to my appointment. Reversed direction and grabbed a seat after placing my "mashed bacon" and carmelized pear" pie order with Rose. Active, vibrant dining area. Beer was drawn, appetited was whetted and pizza nirvanna was immediately served to our table. A fresh, light crust, baked... More

We went with family to this Pizza place which is their local favourite. Pizzas were super yummy and huge , so of course we had some to take home. Service was very good. A great place to eat, and well priced.
