OUR PHILOSOPHY

‘O ver comes from the Neapolitan dialect to mean:
“Truth”

We do our best to reflect this with the
Authentic, delicious and healthy Neapolitan street food
we freshly prepare every day

‘O ver uses the unique ingredient of
Pure Sea Water,
which is extracted from the purest areas of the Mediterranean.
Less sodium and more minerals makes the food lighter and easily digestible

All our Pizzas are made with Pure Sea Water, the best artisan ingredients from small Italian producers and finished with organic extra virgin olive oil from Sicily

We only serve Authentic Neapolitan pizza, which is very soft, elastic, tender and fragrant.

Every single dish is made with love and patience by our chefs,
in full respect of Neapolitan tradition

Waiter was amazing, super helpful and knew his spirits. Loved the willingness to help my fiancé get a fantastic drink off the menu, and even had the bar tender remake it because it was not up to his standards prior to presenting it to us. Highly recommend!

We had been before and enjoyed the experience and food. This time we found the menu very limited unless you wanted pasta or pizza. The wine prices are also above average. We told the first waiter we had to leave at 7.50 as we were going to a show at the Chocolate Factory.

The staff were personable and we ordered. She suggested we need 2 portions of the starter of zucchini and calamari for 4 to share.

Half an hour later another waiter arrived to tell us that the tills weren’t connecting with the kitchen and that the kitchen had not received the orders, but they would expedite it. When the starter arrived it was a bit greasy and one portion would have been fine.

The main courses were ok, but the plates cold as was the parmigana. As time was getting tight we ordered coffee, but it had not arrived when we had to leave.

We told the manager that the service was disjointed and disappointing and after giving lots of explanations kindly reduced our bill.

Went here as a last minute booking on a Saturday night for 21:45.

Initial thoughts are that as a venue this feels a little high street. Waiting staff however were very attentive and our initial round of drinks came very quickly.

My starter, squid and courgette was very good, squid tasted just right and not over cooked, but this is where the positive experience food wise finished.

Two of us received the wrong mains which had to be sent back. These dishes took a long time to come, at which point the rest of our group had almost finished eating. For my part the £18 Parpadelle was undercooked and the ragu purely made of salt. The portion also was diminutive. Extremely expensive for what it is.

The staff were very apologetic and helpful, taking items off our bill and so on, which was much appreciated. However; the overall experience is that this is just an overly expensive Italian restaurant in an area of London in which there’s a lot of other choices.

Fantastic high quality Italian . Food was some of the best Italian outside of Italy, snd the wine was of high quality. The staff were really lovely and couldn’t do enough for you. They have a fab bar as well. This place is becoming one of my favourite places to meet friends.

The dining experience was very pleasant and our waiter very attentive. However, I’d say 3 meatballs and a half slice of bread at £16 is a little pricey. No pasta just 3 meatballs. Lovely and tasty though.
Pizza might be a better option

Upmarket, trendy pizza/pasta place, which carries it all off because of the quality of the food and ingredients, the service and the staff. On the hottest day of the year, the citrus spritz was a wonder.

Seating area a bit cramped. We were given a table in the middle near the bar area and the staff had to walk around us a lot. We were on a short visit so had pizza which was delicious but a bit chewy. Probably better to spend more time here and try the more adventurous offerings on the menu. Ordered far too much salad but not warned before it arrived.

Great food -amazing flavours.
Wasn’t so keen on being sat downstairs so perhaps this should be made clearer when booking as it’s a very different space to the ground floor
I would most definitely go back

We have been to 'O Ver multiple times, and it never disappoints us. Excellent food (said by two "picky" Italians), friendly but very professional service, perfect atmosphere. Simply one of our favourites in London!

I'm a tough critic when it comes to Italian restaurants, hence the honest score. The place is an oasis in busy Borough High Street, clean lines and calm atmosphere. Great if you want to chat. But the food was a disappointment especially after the sea water hype. The pizza was soggy and average at best! The melanzane had way too much tomato sauce dumped on top and the salad was big but boring and overpriced! So a pizza, a starter, a green leaf salad, one glass of wine and a soft drink came in at £72!
On top of this the service was too pushy, constantly pushing for us to order drinks, and the timing is only 1.5 hours before you are politely asked to move on.
With the current competition around it's not worth the visit.

Open floorplan leading to noise from outside foot traffic. Main floor not ideal for an intimate candlelight dinner

Prices were a bit on the high side as well

Food was great; highly recommend the burratta and the Parma pizza

One of the most fantastic pizza in London.! A really good italian pizza: Pizza Napoletana!
Very friendly staff, great food.
The only problem was the noise : the next table was occupied by very noisy and loudly people which made our conversation difficult.

Wine list is over priced & pizzas are very expensive given that they have very little topping. We ended up paying almost £80 for a bottle of wine & 2 pizzas far too expensive for a fairly basic meal - not good value at all!

I found the service very very very slow. It was a date occasion that I indicate on website when I booked. The waiter was really friendly and the atmosphere was good with lights on. We received two cold starters after 20mins ( 3 bruschette and octopus ). We ordered 1 pasta alla bolognese and meatballs. Pasta was not cooked well and the sauce too salty and not tasty. I m Italian and from Naples and my mum is a chef. I was expecting more from this restaurant and from the past positive reviews but definitely I don’t recommend to go to O Ver, very negative experience.
Ps. We asked for the bills and we waited for 15mins before to pay.
