Business Beat: OTTO Pizza Expands to X-Site of North Star Cafe; This Week.


95 Seat OTTO's Coming to the Hill This Week

By Carol McCracken  (Post # 655)

Pizza lovers take notice! What many in Portland consider to be  the best pizza in Portland is expanding its downtown store to 225 Congress Street on the Hill.  After only 19 months in business, the owners of OTTO’s are opening up their second store on  the Hill.  This week, OTTO pizza opens at the former site of the North Star Cafe also on Congress Street.

The new 95 seat restaurant is planning a soft opening by mid-week  and expects to be in full swing by Friday. (Check out the “musical” decor!) The new OTTO’s  will have the same menu as the downtown store – plus salads and desserts.  Slices are $3. per piece and there are 24 different varities of pizza.

Eric Hoffsten said yesterday afternoon:  “This is the best slice in town.”  He’s been a customer for over a year.

The new restaurant’s phone number is 358-7870.  Hours are  Sun-Thursday 11:30-11.  Friday & Saturday 11:30 – 1:30
