“Portland's favorite haunted pizzeria”
Don’t be surprised if an unexpected guest joins you for a slice today. A constant presence at Old Town Pizza is Nina (pronounced “Nigh-na”), our resident ghost. If you feel a presence behind you, or smell a faint waft of perfume, you may have just received a visit. Nina is often seen in a black dress observing diners and wandering the basement below. Nina’s been here for more than 100 years. It was in 1880 that two successful lumber barons built the Merchant Hotel on this block, catering to Portland’s finest patrons. Old Town Pizza sits in the original hotel lobby. In fact the window where you place your pizza order is the original hotel’s reception desk and is flanked by the lobby’s original decorative cast iron beam posts. Underneath the floor boards are the Shanghai Tunnels connecting Portland via underground pathways, then used to nab unsuspecting sailors and transport them to ships docked on the river, and can be viewed during private tours.
Strongly recommend for families. Great scene for grownups but friendly and lovely enough to entertain the young uns. They loved the idea of the place being haunted.
You order at counter and/or bar and seat yourselves but they bring the food to you. Whole family loved the pizza and the grownups dug the beer selection...creamsicle IPA anyone?
Delicious pizza in an awesome atmosphere. I went twice in the same day.
