Otello is a small, cozy, neighborhood-type Italian trattoria which is located south of Dupont Circle. The menu is traditional Italian, fairly priced that offers enjoyable, hearty meals and an excellent service. This is the place to be for a fun, unhurried dinner with family or friends.

Editorial Reviews

Maura Kelly, The Washington Post | November 24, 2013

Just south of Dupont Circle, Otello serves Italian American food at fair prices. Tables covered in red-and-white checked cloths, simple wooden chairs, wicker chianti bottles and hanging garlic braids produce the intended family-style ambiance. The place bustles with polite, eager servers and busboys, ready to take your coat, fill your water glass or pepper your salad.
