Boston University Gets a Slice of Otto Pizza
The new Commonwealth Avenue location for Brookline's pizza-serving newcomers Otto Pizza is now open.
Otto, who opened their first spot in the Brookline area earlier this year, moved into 888 Comm Ave, a site which once held the Upper Crust pizza which shuttered suddenly in June. The BU-adjacent Otto is the restaurant chain's fifth restaurant, and third in the Boston metro area.

The restaurant seats 60, and serves the same pizza menu as at their Readers Choice-winning Coolidge Corner location from 11:30 a.m. to midnight on weekdays, and until 1 a.m. on weekends. According to the Otto Blog, they are also working on delivery from that location--although the service isn't available yet.
Meanwhile, Upper Crust has some recent Deep PR Woes, such as Scandals Emerging and reports of an attempt to (allegedly) Scam Workers Out Of Overtime Wages. These issues had Grub Street Boston asking whether Otto Pizza could be the new kinder, gentler Upper Crust.
