Nice food and good service. We've been a few times and it's great for groups and if you've got kids. The clam linguine is very nice. Portions are very generous too.

I,ve been eating at Otello,s for years, however on my last visit their were no staff I recognized. It was unusally empty, and the food was awfull. Either the owner is away, or it,s changed hands.

This was very average, and the waiters could not be bothered at all, the place was quite empty and we ordered second drinks that just never came and waited ages in the hope we'd get a dessert menu but in the end gave up waiting and walked to the till so we could pay and get out of there.

Whilst I appreciate that Saturdays are busy, I cannot forgive not just being moved once but twice and whilst eating. Customer service is obviously not particularly important. There is far better authentic Italian cuisine to be had in Hove! They even had the nerve to question why a tip was not forthcoming ........

Came on a Tuesday evening while on holiday , it was fairly quiet and got a good table. Not the usual italian waiter greeting , think he was Spanish and it was all too much trouble. Food was excellent and portions huge. Unfortunately the loudest towie style family turned up next table and that spoilt the ambience. Thanks unfriendly waiter... More

Waited far too long to be served, portion massive but average taste. I wanted a fresh squeezed apple juice from a menu but they didn't have it. Instead I've got the ugliest tasted imitation of juice, the same price.

Our son took us out and he choose the restaurant. I thought I remembered it but I wasn't sure. We walked in and they made us feel like they were doing us a favor by serving us. The food was mediocre as well. I probably won't make that mistake again. I do not recommend.
