Food was a good standard , but plates cleared away while one was still eating and one being used and actually had pizza bread on was poor. Not ever happened before, waiter must have had his mind on other things. I guess it can get boring. Very noisy Christmas party in , guess it's the time of year. Not soncheap... More

Was taking my partner out for he birthday meal and as we don't know the area we thought we would try otello, my partner had deep fried mozzarella which was served cold and water oozing out as she cut into it. This tells me it was brought in frozen. I had meatballs for starter, well it was like biting into... More

A colleague and I had a quick business lunch. I had a delicious Spaghetti Carbonara, my colleague had another pasta dish, smothered in olives which he enjoyed. We had a couple of ice cold Perroni beers and a couple of decent coffees. The service was fast, efficient and friendly. The toilets were immaculate and bright. The staff were attentive, friendly...

Visited for lunch. We ordered Fresh Bresat of Chicken in white wine, lemon. This was like rubber and grey looking. We sent both meals back and we were told that they had tried the chicken in the kitchen and said that there was nothing wrong with it as in the middle the chicken was white in colour. The waiter said... More

Friendly staff take as long as you want no hassle to move you on or just pop in for a quick pizza. Extensive menu, the pizza's and pasta dishes are great as are the chicken, fish and meat and there are always special options. My favourite is the meat and spinach cannelloni, great portion my husband always has the Otello... More

Food is good and reasonably priced. Service is friendly and really quick. There are a couple of outside eating options too (pavement or the patio at the back). Most of the Italians in Brighton are chains (either national or local ones), come to Hove for something a bit more local.

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.
