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

I'll get the slightly more positive stuff about the way first. The table was nice. The big windows were open making it feel like you were sitting outside with a nice breeze, without actually being outside and I suppose the food wasn't bad either. It was nothing amazing, or outstanding but it was nice enough I suppose. What I have... More

I love eating at Otello. The pizza is baked to perfection - proper Italian pizza, how it should be made. The pasta very tasty and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed. Great for kids too.
