Many of the restaurants have very similar menus and we picked this place based on the ambience of its outdoor seating. Food was ok but nothing special, service was quite friendly and attentive so no problems there. We asked to move inside towards the end of the meal as we were being pestered by flies, not their fault I guess... More

After just spending a week in Desenzano we visited a number of bars and restaurants in the evening, and the meal(s) we had in Otium were by far the best. The service was exceptional and the lamb chops (all the way from New Zealand) were cooked to perfection, and the wine recommended by the owner was delicious. Well worth a... More

We visited this restaurant whilst on holiday in Desenzano and was only a 10 minute walk from our hotel.We were warmly welcomed by the owner and were immediately made to feel appreciated. The steak we had was excellent - cooked to perfection with an delicious sauce. Highly recommended though more expensive than others in the area. I have noted some... More

Service was painfully slow despite the restaurant being almost empty. Many people got tired of waiting and just left. No pizza available. Food was OK but bit overpriced. Waitress seemed to be really sorry about the wait, shaked hand with us and apologized - later we found out she does this to everyone. Maybe they should improve their service so... More

Should have consulted trip advisor before attempting to eat here as we had the same experience of being ignored, our order taken twice, then an apology about pizza not being available despite it being advertised on the menu at the entrance. Waitress was friendly but hassled. After 25 minutes of this scene from Fawlty Towers we left and went elsewhere... More

I would have loved to describe our meal in this restaurant, however that would be difficult since we never got any food. We were allowed to order after sitting and waiting for 30 minutes with the menu. An hour after that we still had not recieved any food. After trying to make eye-contact and waiving at the waiter we were... More
