About

The world’s first mozzarella bar, serving the best of Italian Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP, alongside a typical assortment of high quality artisan products such as Prosciutto Crudo di Parma DOP, Bresaola della Valtellina & Speck del Trentino ALto Adige, as well as fantastic antipasti, sharing platters, stone-baked pizzas and traditional pasta dishes.

The guiding principles are freshness and the quality of the ingredients, the ritual presentation and the fast and friendly service.

Obicà is Neapolitan dialect for “Here it is”.

Food was very good and the service also.
My only negative comment would be that when the place is full the acoustics might mean it could get very noisy. When we were there they had four tables and it was fine but I would imagine the high ceiling and glass surround would not be conducive to an intimate meal. That said, the tables are well apart which makes a very pleasant change for a London restaurant.
On balance I would recommend (will certainly go again myself) so long as it is not on a very busy night if you want a peaceful evening.

Fun, family friendly spot in the center of South Kensington. Great service, staff was very attentive and helped make some lovely choices on the Italian wine. Food was fresh and balanced with a diverse choice.

CHALEUREUX / EXCELLENT / une belle découverte
Un serveur très sympathique et qui ne pousse pas à la consommation. Souriant de bons conseils, il a bien fait rire ma fille.
Très bon rapport qualité / prix.
Un très bon souvenir à recommander sur Londres

Great sharing dishes (we ordered two of the truffle burrata between the two of us, because it was so delicious), lovely wine, friendly staff and nice quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Fast service too and decent value for the area.

The food was ok but nothing special. The service was not great and the place was uncomfortably hot. Having visited the Milan obica I was looking forward to a similar experience I was rather disappointed

We really enjoyed the restaurant. We had an early evening reservation so it was quite quiet. The weather was lovely so the bifold doors were open making the restaurant feel light and airy.
The food was delicious and was value for money.

Having been to the original Obica in Firenze, I was expecting the same, if not, close to the same quality. Regrettably, this was not the case.

I ordered a tuna carpaccio, but received what was essentially tuna fish similar to that found in a can. I returned the dish which was replaced with three slices of smoked tuna.

My wife and our guest ordered a chicken salad plate that lacked any attempt to present it in an appetizing manner, and was tasteless.

The only thing that made the lunch tolerable was manager. He was accommodating and very pleasant. But, I would either replace the “chef” or send him for refresher training. And, he was Italian

I was really hoping for a bit more from the food. The ambiance is really nice, service was on par but the food was just average and also very expensive. A shame as it’s a good location and close to home we were really hoping to add another resteraunt into our rotation but I don’t think we will be back.

Unlucky. The frier broke — apparently after we had ordered— so no arancini and no croquettes either— two crucial parts of what we wanted to eat. A restaurant so reliant on a frier needs a reserve machine— not impressed. Remaining food good—pastas excellent. No real apology.

I didn't like the restaurant at all mainly because of the very poor food that they offer. Mozzarella was awful - this was genuinely the worst mozzarella I've had in years (and I eat it regularly). Pasta was OK.

The starters are good. Burrata and Mozzarella is good. But they do not know how to make any kind of pasta for sure.

Burrata was amazing, but once we got onto the pizza's, 13 pound for a parmigiana, exclusive tax and 12.5% service charge is not value for money. Very basic dough and no wood fire oven. Go for the starters not for the pizza's

Very original and varied menu, with a speciality in mozzarella (if you don't like that, then this is probably not a restaurant for you). Good and attentive service, in a nice quiet neighbourhood.
