We went 'on spec' on a Saturday lunchtime. The restaurant was busy, and the waiters were friendly. There was a wide range of choices on the menu, and my chicken dish was excellent. Really generous portions as well.

We went on a Sunday lunchtime and were greeted by a sea of waiters. The menu was extensive, some very nice looking specials on there, and the prices seemed reasonable; for example £3.95 for almost all the desserts. A really good range of pastas - the four cheese pasta was delicious and very filling, an excellent pizza, and the veal... More

This restaurant needs to take a look at itself in order to see what it's doing wrong. The service was slapdash and without etiquette, and the ingredients used were low quality and the majority of the food had a taste of pre-preparedness about it. Not good.

Was a little concerned when we read the recent reviews, but all in all a pleasant experience. Food was good, nothing to wow me, but good. Service was perhaps a little muddled and brash, but there was 12 of us, so not a bad job done really. Would I go back? Not in a hurry, but perhaps.

Totally bowled over by the quality of food - the liver and bacon starter was wonderful but the fish stew was absolutely stunning! Cannot recommend highly enough. Fabbo.

Been here a couple of times, my first visit was better than the last. This time service was very slow, had to wait about 45 mins for the bill and from what we could see others has the same issue. Was a real shame because the food was tasty just like it was on the previous visit

I have been to this restaurant in Hove a few times and never been disappointed. It's a good Italian restaurant, people are voting with their feet as it's always busy but not too full. My companion had apasta with chicken and I had a prosciutto and funghi pizza that was delicious. We had ice cream and sorbet to finish, the... More

Went here for supper, took my mum for a treat. So, food was nice, and we had decent bottle of wine. They were very busy and it was loud with groups in, but that can happen. But here's 'the rub' - they had nearly 8 waitiing staff, who seemed to be so wrapped in interacting with friends and regulars on... More

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...
