My family and I visited Otello's this week for lunch and dined al fresco. We were promptly greeted by the waiter and given a menu together with the specials. I was quite taken aback that nothing on the specials menu and the vast majority of main courses a la carte were priced between £17-£25. For lunch this seemed particularly excessive.... More

I have just started revisiting Otello's after a break of at least 10 years. I had moved out of the area but moved back a couple of years ago. This place is great for your basic Italian foods - pizza and pasta. Well prepared and well priced. The thing I love about the place is the service. The waiting staff... More

I really enjoyed this place last year, but on returning with the same group of friends this year it was not as good, unfortunately. Although not as busy this time, the waiters seemed flustered - they got some of the orders wrong, were quite flustered and one of them was a little off-hand with me when I mentioned an allergy....

Considering there weren't many people in the restaurant the staff weren't particularly attentive. The food is pretty average. I had a spaghetti vongole which was certainly nothing special. The clams were pretty chewy. I would probably have given them a 3 stars but the waiter handed me the card machine on the 'add gratuity' even though the already add a... More

Visited this restaurant last weekend as we were staying in Hove. Found the staff to be very friendly and polite , food was lovely, and the after dinner coffees were wonderful! Well worth giving this place a try :-)

I've just seen a previous reviewer refer to this place as a battery farm. He ain't far off. It took us the best part of 2 hours to get 3 starters and 4 pizzas delivered to our table. The service was lamentable at best, waiting ages to order then waiting ages for it to be served and then guess what... More

Visited here on a Sunday with friends and all our children. The staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. Good choice of food with lots of options for the kids too. Portions were generous but the food was also flavoursome. Pizza was great as was the pasta. All the children liked their food and enjoyed the whole experience. Very... More

What a mistake in visiting this restaurant. The staff were inattentive and miserable with the attitude of dumping food on the table. It was too much to ask to be given a jug of water between four. When our food arrived it was banged on the table, we felt like battery hens in cages with that level of finesse. I... More
