Othello's is royalty in Norman. The cook to order pasta dishes are exceptional. This is where the locals eat. It is bizarre that this place is not rated much higher on Tripadvisor. This is a must stop in Norman.

Lots pf pasta and other Italian foods. Not much to write home about. It has been said that at one time it was the favorite restaurant of former OU head coach Barry Switzer.

I love a good Italian meal. And I found it here. The recipes are obviously family heirlooms. If you want lasagne from the freezer, this is not your place. If you want lasagne that is made the way your mama made it, run to this...More

Othellos is a family owned Italian restaurant with locations in Edmond and Norman Oklahoma. We offer casual dining in a family atmosphere and serve great pastas, pizza, and seafood at affordable prices for over 35 years. Many of our finest menu items are customer creations like: Helen's Baked Chicken Ravioli and Jimmy's Toast With An Attitude. On April 29th, our Norman location was struck by lightning and experienced heavy fire damage. While we are temporarily closed while we rebuild, you can continue to enjoy your favorite Italian dishes at our Edmond location!
