Unlike with alot of italian restaurants here you get served a proper plate of pasta and not a small 'starter' portion.It helps if the pasta is good and here it's very good.I also want a slice of Italy when I go to an italian restaurant and expect to be served by italian waiters which is the case... read more

There are better, MUCH better, Italian places in the area and the pizzas at Otello are not the best.

The waiters were very rude, don't think I saw a smile cracked all evening. The food was average at best, ordered a rib-eye steak and the quality was no different to what I've been served at a Weatherspoons for half the price. Wouldn't come again.

The food is good, pretty standard Italian. The service was fine. The thing is, the service used to be GREAT - friendly, attentive waiters. That made it special, now it's just average. Still, nothing to complain about, tasty enough.

We arrived early which was good as it did get very busy for a Wednesday night and we hadn't booked . The man that seated us was very pleasant and then the waiter with a funny attitude arrived ! He was like a robot that didn't want to be there and then suddenly he came back and was all smiley... More

This place looked rather shabby from the outside, but once inside, it was more refined, spacious and clean. They had a daily lunch menu priced at only £8.95 for 2 courses which I thought I'd try. My starter, prawn cocktail was very generous with the amount of prawns served on the plate. I then had the Lasagne which I found... More

This is a great place for a no nonsense Italian night out. The food is excellent as is the service and it doesn't break the bank.

...that don't know what bruschetta is. I literally can't even... The pizza chefs bicker all night too, in public. Whilst hilarious, not exactly welcoming!

I went with a group of friends and the restaurant was kind enough to fit us in at very short notice on a Bank Holiday weekend. The restaurant was extremely busy and the atmosphere was buzzing, but the service was good considering how busy it was. There is an extensive menu, though I did end up with my fallback of... More
