We ate at this little Italian restaurant weekly for over 4 years until they moved out of Bulimba and the site was redeveloped in 2016. I heard they opened up in West End. They are known for their divine Risotto - I have lost count of how many St. Agata's I consumed. Pizza's are good too. Pity they are no... More

Had lunch here before the movies, was a complete surprise how delicious their italian food was. Admittedly small serving for the price but delicious nonetheless.

Exploring Bulima decided to check out Otello's for some breakfast. Decided to do away with the traditional eggs and bacon and go European and enjoy coffee and a pastry. It was a great choice, pastry was fresh and yummy and coffee was superb. Observing everyone else enjoying their various breakfast choices I could see happy faces everywhere and that is... More

I was so disappointed with our dinner this evening. Arrived as walk ins and given a table no problem. Scallop starter was fine , our mains arrived - marinara and bollanaise respectively. Never seen a bollanaise main as small, had to ask for parmesan (would've thought for an Italian restaurant that it would be offered.) We both wanted a desert... More

Dine on side walk, inside or outside under awning. $5 breakfast - 2 eggs [fried, poached or scrambled] with bacon & 1 slice of thick toast and any additional items $2 each. Coffee was not hot when served. Food was well presented / appealing and filling for me. Had a refreshing iced coffee with cannoli [Italian sweet] a pastry tube... More

Had dinner at Otellos last night and all 6 of us enjoyed all of the meals. Ordered the polenta chips which were divine for entree. The San Lazzaro salad, calamari, marinara pasta, pizza cappriciosa and gnocchi with mushroom sauce. There was a problem with the sauce for the gnocchi but it was fixed up immediately. Service was good. Quality of... More

We were in Oxford street with a friend from surfers and as I had eaten there previously and was pleased with the food decided to have dinner. We ordered a pizza to share as an appetiser which we all enjoyed we then decided to have pasta marinara which was a disaster. The seafood what there was of it was tasteless... More

Had lunch at Otello last week and it was a delicious experience. Calamari and salad, pizza capricciosa and risotto to die for! The staff were attentive and not overbearing. I have a full life and go out to restaurants for the food. I don't need to have a social life with the staff at the restaurants I go to. I... More

I am sure this place means well but truly lacks the heart of a true restaurant. My partner and I are locals and frequent a lot of what Bulimba has to offer. Unfortunately Otello's is not a place we visit. Not to say we have had terrible service, when we finally chose to eat there is was an average experience... More

Definitely will be back. Service pretty good. Best Italian I've had in Brisbane and I am really fussy so that's saying something! Definitely enjoyed this place!
