awful service - repeatedly had to get up to find a staff memberto ask for things. repeatedly forgot to bring us items including main course as waiter had forgotten to place order. when main course eventually arrived, the food was sadly cold. not good value for the portion sizes, very plain tasting - i enjoy italian food but this was a disappointment.

Obica is a really good place to chill and have some good italian dishes. The cold and hot starters are very good and the pizza is one of the best I had in London.

The food is nothing to write home about though two of our party said the carbonara was good. Service was OK though about half of their beer selection was unavailable. Good location for a pre-theatre bite before the London Palladium.

Food great. Toilets more what you’d expect in a night club than a nice restaurant - broken door handles meant one of our group got stuck in the loo unable to get out. Staff appeared unfazed when told about this - toilet was in the same state an hour later when we left; no sign saying out of order so anyone could get stuck in it again.

But the food was great!

We had a fab time at Obicà. We arrived slightly late which the restaurant were relaxed about.

We shared a huge mozzarella ball for starters (when in Rome!) which was delightful (the 250g was a good portion between 4), and each enjoyed different mains.

The best part were the serving staff - all super friendly, polite but chatty and attentive but not over bearing.

We would definitely return as we were made to feel so welcome, thank you!

The restaurant was really nice, food was lovely & staff friendly. My only problem was i had booked to receive a free glass of wine with main meals which I didn’t receive, when i asked about this when the bill was presented i was told I should have said so at the start! Nowhere on my booking confirmation did it say this & in the past when i have used another company to book offers i have not had to do this as it had always been known to the restaurant ad it is on the booking so this was quite annoying as it added an additional £15 cost to the bill which was unexpected

Our waitress was amazing, very knowledgable and just an overall pleasure. I think the food is expensive for what you get £30 for a plate of cold cuts and cheese is expensive but for me the amazing service made up for this.

Very friendly Italian staff who are knowledgeable and helpful when questioned about dishes and the types of mozzarella. I was given very good advice when it came to choosing wine, with an Excellent Verdicchio from the producers Umani Ronchi. I will definitely go back. Our whole family enjoyed the meal.

I have been many times to the City branch and have been very pleased, so I decided to try this one too.
Food was overall ok, good quality ingredients as always with Obicà and great buffalo mozzarella, but the carbonara and the tiramisù dishes were not something extraordinary.
What was a drawback in the experience was the staff’s weird attitude that made us uncomfortable.
Maybe it was just this night, as I never had a bad experience with Obicà before!

Free glass of wine with main is not goodz. Tasted like ribena. Knife could not cut pizza. Why not giving steak knives?!? Tiramisu was too creamy and did not have the taste of ameretto. Would not rush back.
