Went here on Sat 21st Jan with no booking at around 8.15pm. We didn't have to wait which was great. We ordered drinks and food (starters and mains) our mains came before the starters (ooops) The waiter was genuinely upset this had happened and offered to bring us new mains after the starters but we weren't that fussed and said...

Orders takes swiftly and efficiently,food turned up in good time and asked about drinks throughout the meal. All worked well and much better than other places near by. Well... More

You are always greeted with a friendly and prompt service. Generous portions and a good varied menu. My portion was so large I asked and was provided with a doggy bag. Always worth a visit. Good value for money.

Fantastic food, friendly atmosphere. Watch your food being lovingly prepared for you as you soak.up the ambience while you wait. The food was gorgeous, we all had something different but each dish was perfectly presented and tasted amazing. Will be going back for sure on our next trip at the end of 2017

Warmly welcomed, quickly shown to a table, helped off with our coats, drinks order taken and served fast. Very tasty food. Large menu. Open kitchen, with the cooks and service staff very jolly and smiling. Made everyone in our party feel comfortable. Highly recommended.

We had a mostly enjoyable Christmas Eve lunch with friends at Otello. The ambience was great for the middle of the day with Christmas carols playing, and the food was pretty good; however, it took a surprisingly long time for food orders to be taken, and we waited just over 25 minutes to pay the bill, despite asking 3 separate...

Restaurant was very very busy - lots of Christmas parties - but got seated quite quickly and whilst the service initially was slow (not to be surprised dye to the volume of people) once we got served everything really was very good. Had three courses and all the food was really well cooked and tasty. Maybe one thing would have... More

Great ambience with a real buzz. Very extensive menu. Food cooked to perfection. Superb friendly service. We were a party of four and all had different mains which were beautifully served and the fresh vegetables were cooked really well. great value for money.
