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.

Came here for a birthday celebration, and we left very flat following an exhibition of how not to treat customers by the snotty and disinterested waiters. Despite getting there early, and only 2 or 3 tables actually being occupied, the many waiters milling around the place took no interest in us at all. When the order was eventually taken, the... More

OTELLO was our choice from the many restaurants on Hove High Street firstly because it looked so attractive and fresh, secondly because the menu was varied and quite extensive, thirdly because the prices seemed very good, and lastly because the restaurant seemed fairly busy already, which I took as a good sign. We were a group of four, and the... More

I have been here many times over the last 20 years or so. Last night was so bad I have to write this review. Food at best is average. Service was so bad it was frustrating. We seem to have 4 waiters all of whom ignored us. The waiter who took our order left half way through the table to... More

Italian food is possibly my favorite, and as such have tried them all in this town and many others. Otello used to be the absolute business. Portions that were out of control, great ingredients, flavour, presentation, excellent staff and a buzzy environment to make that high energy environment every Italian restaurant should have, including chefs shouting over the over used,...

We went to Otello's for a Birthday celebration and we had a great time. We were served by a very friendly waiter who happens to be Greek and he was excellent and made the night for us. The food was consistently good around the table from the comments and the service was quick, efficient and non intrusive. Have been here... More

Today we went to the Otello cafe for lunch. We were only three if us in the cafe. The service was not great. The menu stated they had panini's on a request. I was told by the miserable waitress they do not do them. After going to ask the chef she asked what filling I wanted. When it arrive 45... More
