The place is really central and it was almost easy to find a table there, however the quality of the food is avarage and not excellent. I had a parmigiana that was not really warm and a tiramisu' which was not really great and tasty, nothing specifically wrong with the food but I had higher expectations. Similar feedback for the antipasti, nothing special unfortunately.
Personnel was really professional.

Although we booked for 7 people and requested a large table in advance, we were only provided with a table space for 6 people and an extra child chair. This was very unpleasant for the guests who accompanied us. The manager of the restaurant was not sincere at all. The quality of the food was poor, and the restaurant was not worth visiting.

First time been here when it's been full. Usually it's excellent, but tonight service was slow and the food didn't live up to expectations a bit rushed really. Portion size was parsimonious . Shame as the experience here is usually superior to the run of the mill Italian eatery.

Service extremely slow, starters served before drinks. It took 45 minutes for our table to be cleared after the starters.
We used to visit quite regularly, unfortunately overall it was disappointing and we won't be going back again.

Starters - Courgettes were missing and we had batter only. Terrible and greasy. I sent a message ahead that we are there for a birthday and please bring a pannacotta with a candle. I would have paid for it. But no pannacotta is sight and I couldn't mention it in front of birthday person. Will not return.

Food was lovely, I would definitely return to sample more of the pasta menu on offer.

Starters arrived before the drinks which were sat on the bar for ages and why I wouldn't heap praise on the service (although all the staff were lovely).

Only one ladies toilet open which just didn't make sense as meant people queuing in corridor.

Overall I enjoyed it very much- lovely setting and the prices for central London aren’t too bad. I would say both the pasta dishes we had were a bit small but I strongly recommend the pizzas.

Nice place to eat out with friends, family and colleagues. Friendly staff and good ambience. Rated as good because I'd like to see them offer more vegan options across the entire menu as I felt quite limited.

Booked to have dinner here with a friend. As it got busier the staff really seemed to struggle, so service was slow waiting for water and drinks for the table.
Dessert was hilarious, we ordered a ‘small’ tiramisu each, but it was in a shot glass, smaller than a kids portion.
Suggest completely removing that option for the menu. Was an expensive shot glass for £3.50

Food was amazing! Easily some of the best pasta I have ever had. Came for a belated birthday dinner for my friend and we got a complimentary tiramisu which was lovely. Will be coming back again very soon.

No gluten free options as in for pizza and pasta unfortunately, ended up having a handful of smoked salmon with a slice avocado for £14, still hungry and not quite the lunch experience I had hoped for.

London restaurants are always pricey; this one wasn't too bad for food, but drinks (alcohol) prices were off the scale.

I hadn't been to Obica before but found it on Trust Pilot. We arrived early, 12:15, and it was very quiet but by 1:00pm it was filling up fast. The two waitresses were friendly, polite and attentive. A good selection of wines, cocktails and beers. We ordered a simple starter, bruschetta and garlic bread. The bruschetta was amazing; the flavours of basil, tomato and the prawn bruschetta with courgette flowers were superb - so tasty. My son and I both had salads for our mains and they were good size portions, well dressed with some unusual additions. I had raspberries in my smoked salmon and avocado salad which really complemented the flavours. I was really impressed and will definitely eat there again.

Took our 5 children here on Sunday.
2 of them ate from the children’s menu and the older fussy 3 had adult meals.
Portion sizes were spot on, the children all enjoyed their meals and we as adults not only enjoyed our food but were pleased to have found a place to eat that kept them all happy.
Staff were also friendly but not overly attentive (which in our books is ideal, nothing worse than being asked 20 times how your meal is whilst your mouth is full).

The house wine was very poor. Staff tried to sell us an average bottle of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo for £44! We left after a very expensive Bruschetta (only two pieces per portion). I rarely write reviews, but I am afraid I have been driven to post this one because of the appalling value for money.
