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

On a recent trip to Chur we dined twice at this lovely restaurant. It had been recommended to us by the receptionist at the ABC Hotel and it proved to be near, so not far to walk in the dark. The restaurant has a charm of it's own and serves excellent authentic Italian food. The staff were very welcoming, polite... More

Good meal here and the staff very helpful. The restaurant was full of locals and that is always a good sign. Price quite high but that is Switzerland.

I've read a lot of positive reviews, but reality has exceeded my expectations. I wish I could go there every day! We came over around 6 pm without advance booking but they managed to find a table in about 15 minutes. Very friendly and quick service. You might find familiar items in the menu, but I can bet - it... More

Wow, what a great meal at an awesome price!!!! We shared everything. We started with an Caprese salad followed my Pizza with ham, artichokes, olives, and mushrooms. We finished with Lasagna Bolognese. Everything was delicious. This is a must!!

We were recommended this restaurant by the lovely receptionist at the ABC Hotel where we were staying - a short walk away. It was everything other reviewers have said - great food choice, friendly English speaking staff, buzzing atmosphere and excellent layout of tables and kitchen. We enjoyed ourselves and recommend it.

A lovely Italian restaurant, very popular with the locals apparently. Lovely food preparation, delicious pastas and risottos. The pizza we ordered could have been better though.
