Visited Otellos this evening. We have been many times before but I had forgotten what a great family restaurant it is. We went with our toddler so it great that it's not too quiet. The childs portion was huge (meatballs & pasta). I enjoyed the organic chicken breast - excellent to have this option. Lovely house white wine too. The... More

Used to be a favourite of mine when I lived in Hove, great Italian food to be had here and some even better desserts!! Never had a problem here for seating or service. Always top notch and would recommend this place to anyone.

Would not go here again service was very slow and staff were rude and shout at you. They run out of items on the menu and cram as many people in as they can.

Been going to Otello's for years. Great pizza and pasta but the real gems are their steaks - superb value for money, have never had a bad steak there, absolutely delicious. Always quite lively in there so good for family or friend gatherings.

This was a second visit, and I wasn't disappointed. I had a plate of Frutti Di Mare Mixed seafood, garlic and tomato sauce for only £8.95. It was a large, generous portion and most enjoyable. Fresh and seasonal dishes are served here and the staff are very nice. We had a table near the window with a view outside towards... More

Had a great meal here Sunday lunch time. Was advised to gave the sea bream if I wanted fish. It was beautifully cooked and full of flavour. Vegetables cooked just right. Excellent service. Felt very welcome. Will definitely return regularly.
