Great Italian restaurant - popular with the locals

Young lady at the hotel recommended this restaurant and we enjoyed it so much that we went back all three nights that we were in Chur. Very friendly staff who greeted us like friends and remembered what wine we ordered. Large outdoor seating area that was full every evening (Mon. - Wed) and they... read more

Location = downtown: 1/4 mile from Chur's railway station. Parking = easy (outside or inside) Staff = polite. Menu = good (pizza and pasta) Pasta = acceptable. (More for foreigner than Italians) Wine list = good but a little bit expensive. Cleanliness = VERY GOOD Price = EXPENSIVE (42.50 CHR for a sea bass) IN BRIEF: It is a good... More

We didn't have a booking, but got a table for two, even though the place seemed quite busy. The service was efficient, if not overly friendly. We had lasagna, which was delicious and very very hot, but a bit different in that there was a reasonablly small square of layered pasta with quite a lot of sauce around it, it... More

Came here for dinner with my husband last night. Was hoping for a nice, hot meal that was not outrageously expensive. Overall, the experience was good. I would rate the waiters and the time it took to prep the food pretty highly. However, this place definitely turned out to be a lot more upscale than I anticipated (think well-to-do locals... More

I've eaten at Otello about 10 or 12 times over the last 10 years. It's very close to Hotel ABC, and both are right across the street from the train station. I would highly suggest anything on the menu, it's that good and that consistent. I came here multiple times right after arriving in Europe to fight jetlag with a... More

I've eaten in this restaurant a few times, mostly at lunch. So far, i'm quite happy. One time i complained the meat was too dry and wasn't able to finish it, the waitress apologized and gave me my drink for free. Had some lamb with my sister with some risotto. Was very tasty, i'd gladly recommend. It was crispy on... More

I generally get Bolognaise. A seemingly simple dish, but difficult to do at a high level of quality. I think a good measure of the chef. I have had this dish on several continents. Otello tied (from my travels) with another for the best. Otello was better than any of the places in Rome I tried. If you enjoy Italian,... More

I've been eating in Otello many times the last couple of years. Staff is always very friendly and helpful, you can tell that the restaurant really is after that certain class and high quality standard, which i really like. Very recommendable for business lunches aswell, or just a cosy dinner with friends or partner. Since (in my opinion) it's kind... More
