Otto Pizza May Be Opening in South Boston

A group of pizzerias specializing in gourmet thin-crust pies could be opening another Boston-area location, and this one would reside in a particularly hot part of the city.

According to a Twitter post from @mjvulch, Otto Pizza is looking at a space on W Broadway in South Boston by F Street, with an abutters meeting on the plan being slated for August 21. The notice shows that the space would need to be changed over from commercial retail to restaurant, and that Otto does not plan to serve alcohol at this location. If its plans are ultimately approved, the new location of Otto would join others in Brookline (Coolidge Corner and near BU), Cambridge's Harvard Square (which is temporarily closed due to a fire), Arlington, Lynnfield, and Newburyport, along with several in Maine, which is where the restaurant started out.

The address for the proposed location of Otto in South Boston is 416-418 W Broadway, South Boston, MA, 02127. The website for all locations can be found at https://www.ottoportland.com/

[October 23 update: Otto Pizza could soon be one step closer to opening in South Boston, as a licensing board hearing page indicates that its request for a common victualler license is slated to be looked at this week.]
