Very good for lunch & dinner!

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... read 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 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

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
