Well where do i begin with this shocker, My best friend got Married on 6th October, at Hove church which was a beautiful small church and the Minister was brilliant, as it was an intimate wedding for 13 guests, so they both booked Otello in Hove for dinner at 19.00, we arrived, and they had no tables ready for our...

Been here a couple of times now and have been very happy both times! Sometimes wish the portions of pasta could be a little smaller so I could actually fit a starter or dessert in as well, but I'm not complaining! Atmosphere was busy on a Friday and we found the service to be prompt and polite. I have yet... More

Over-priced and over-rated. Bit of a local institution for pizza but has got complacent. Too expensive for what is no better than a chain experience. Service surly. Feel like your being rushed to get the next lot of suckers in. Avoid - there are much better places.

Ok so it was a busy friday night but not but we were completely ignored, not even asked if we would like a drink. The staff all looked miserable and stressed so we walked out across the road and had a lovely meal in much more pleasant surroundings at Orsino's. Come on guys, there are lots of Italians in Hove....

Having walked around in the rain all day, we felt that we needed to choose a restaurant that was close by to our lodgings as the clouds were gathering and we thought we'd get caught in a storm again. Hence why we chose to visit Otello. The first thing I noticed was that a 10% surcharge was automatically added to... More

We had booked a table and the waiter grunted, scratched his head, counted the money left by a table who were just leaving, then without saying a word to us he walked off leaving the 4 of us standing in the door way. We ordered starters and only 2 came out and then we had to ask 2 waiters where... More
