It is now the fourth time we have had dinner here so I'm happy to give a decent review. The restaurant itself (like most of the restaurants on Oxford Street) has a really pleasant vibe and has the added advantage of serving excellent Italian food without trying to turn you into a receptacle for money. Otello's has a reasonable charge... More

An authentic Italian restaurant (one of the family was my Italian tutor years ago it turns out), they serve excellent coffee and fine food. Great selection of Italian sweats to go with coffee (the cannoli is some of the best I've had). Their lunchtime pizzas are well recommended.

Outside the store was advertised "bacon and eggs for $5 before 12pm. Excited by the deal I tried to order the bacon and eggs at 11:40. The staff (who were extremely rude) told me the offer was only valid until 11:30 I told them the sign clearly says 12, and that they are legally obliged to deliver what was advertised... More

Over the years, my friends and I have been to this restaurant several dozen times. To make this statement should explain many things and, perhaps, I could stop here without making any other comments. After all, if it wasn’t to our liking, we wouldn’t return so frequently. This restaurant is Italian, owned by Italians, operated by Italians – passionate about... More

The coffee was excellent!!!!! I can't stress this enough, I ended up ordering 3 Fws. Service was efficient and price really good for the high quality of... More

Visited for catch up dinner with local friends. Service is very good except I was poured a poorer quality bottle of wine different to what I ordered. When I pointed out the mistake I was told my chosen wine was not available. When I requested to view the wine list I was told no wines were available from the list... More

Now I remember why I stopped coming here. When all the other restaurants in the area are packed on a Sunday and this one is empty, there is a reason. Normally, going into an almost empty restaurant should result in, minimally, fast service. However, in this case, it took almost 20 minutes to get a basic omelette. To add insult... More

Our family frequents this restaurant on rare occasions, and at times the food can be great, the service is always professional and fast, however the food can be a let down. On this particular Saturday night the food was ordinary and not what was expected for a restaurant experience. The menu is very extensive is this is possibly the problem... More
