The worst experience of my life. I went to Othello's for my birthday, and the salmon meal came out raw. I sent it back and it came back a second time raw. I asked the manager, Kim, if we could change the order to chicken since the cook had a problem cooking fish. She brought the cook out to argue with me that salmon was supposed to be dark pink in the middle and I should have asked for it "well done" if I wanted it to flake. The manager then asked if we wanted it or not - I said no, because it was raw. She said "Well, I'm charging you for it anyway." Sure enought $17 was on our tab for a plate of food that we refused because it was raw.
HORRIBLE SERVICE AND ATTITUDE! If you go to Campus Corner, visit Keith at Brother's or the Deli - DO NOT GO TO OTHELLO'S!!!!

I drove from Dallas for my birthday, and went to Othello's for dinner. The salmon came out raw, so we sent it back and asked to have it cooked through. It came out a second time raw. I asked the waitress if we could change the order to chicken since the cook was having a problem determining when salmon was cooked. She brought the cook to our table to ARGUE with us that salmon was dark pink in the middle and we should have asked for it ""well done"" if we wanted it to flake. The manager then asked if we wanted it or not - we said, no because it was raw. She said ""I'm charging you for it anyway"" and took away the plate that we never ate off of! Unbelievable that we were charged $17 for HORRIBLE SERVICE!!!!!!!
We enjoyed our visit to Othello's so much that I would encourage anyone to go. The Italian reminded me of the authentic food we would get in Italy, the ambience charming becuase of it's age, and the staff genuinely sweet and attractive. The owner, as we discovered was a previous server and she constantly greeted tables through out the night. Can't say enough! You must try!
