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

A lot of things I like about this new found favourite:
- authentic Italian food;
- cozy and relaxed ambiance;
- location (proximity to London Bridge Station)
- service (greeted by lovely waitress and our waiter was very enthusiastic)

It gets very busy so suggest to book in advance for dinner.

Our second visit here, first time the food was perfect not the same this time round, however the salad with figs and orange dressing was delicious great pizza I was looking forward to desert as the tiramisu was delicious last time but I was highly disappointed as it was served frozen tiny blob on a plate was surprised the chef would serve that. The waiter kindly erased from bill, will try here again. Hopefully not in the basement preferred upstairs

3-4 time visiting. Didn’t realise there was a downstairs area and the table we had for 3 people was sofa chairs on a lower coffee table. Not what I was expecting after previous visiting and seating upstairs. Food was good, some a bit pricey £20 pizza, But good. Will like visit again still for lunch

Food was, I would particularly recommend the Naples street food sharing platter and the pasta but the pizza was actually a little greasy, the base thicker than I would have expected and nothing like real Neapolitan pizza. The service was good but a few quite strange moments where a waiter rather aggressively came over to our table to put the bottles of olive oil and balsamic back on their stand. We also ordered a salad that came undressed and the dressing arrived after we had started eating the food. All in all, it was a lovely restaurant and the food was very good but the service let it down so we did feel it was quite pricey for the experience we did get. Hopefully just a one off so we will probably still recommend!

unfortunately i disagree with the reviews on the food: very average in my opinion, 2.5-3 max out of 5. on the positive, I loved the deco, the staff is very nice and the place is lively but quiet at the same time. you can definitely have a nice conversation even when the place is at maximum capacity.

O'ver is fantastic - the ambience is perfect for either a traditional family dinner, or a more intimate occasion.

The saltwater pizza is the best in London, and my colleagues from Naples can atest to the authenticity and execution of the streetfood choices. The menu has more "ooh, I must have that" options than any other I know. I could eat it all happily, which makes selecting a difficult occupation.

What I like most about it, is that the acoustics make the atmosphere lively yet intimate, at times it can feel both secluded and inclusive at the same time.
I can't wait for the new branch to open in the West End, but if you haven't tried it yet I can't recommend it highly enough.

My friend and I regularly go to the Chocolate Menier Theatre and have been looking for a reliable restaurant to go to before the shows. O Ver very much fits the bill particularly as my friend only eats the vegetarian options when we go out. Good choice of food on the menu and very pleasant staff.

By far the best pizza in London. They use sea water and perfectly cook the dough so each pizza is deliciously chewy and flavorful. You'll have a hard time not eating all the crust! Coupled with a warm, prompt wait staff, beautiful wood furniture and candle light, this restaurant is always a delight to visit. They do offer other Italian dishes and consistently know what they're doing in the kitchen and front of the house - highly recommended!

This is a modest Italian restaurant. The food was ok, although the portions seemed very small for the price- we had the pasta dishes. The pizza very wet and soggy in the middle - the person eating it couldn't actually lift up a piece without the topping sliding off onto the plate, although the actual dough around the edge was delicious. We started with cocktails which were very watery - I could hardly taste any alcohol, or anything else much for that matter, and it was so full of ice it quickly just turned into a watered down elderflower squash, so that was disappointing. However, the service was good. But it's an expensive lunch for what we got. No free bread or extras, considering the mains were expensive for what is essentially an unfussy Italian cafe.

Everything we ate was superb everything was cooked with quality produce best Italian food I have had in a while. Staff also pleasant and helpful ambiance elegant and cosy, white linen and candles. The only negative is we had to rush as it was 1.30 min sitting. understand it’s busy and they need tables promptly however 2 hours would be fair . We had to rush our desert and Prosecco. For that reason we may not return.

Lovely authentic feel to the restaurant but the food was really disappointing. I had pasta & my partner had a calzone & both were extremely salty, to the point where we couldn't eat any more :( The wait staff, while friendly, were unorganised & seemingly unfamiliar with the menu which left us, at times, confused! For those prices I'd have expected a much more enjoyable overall experience.

We had small plates and the street food sharing platter pre theatre on a Friday night. The food was ok, mostly sounding more interesting than it tasted. The deep fried street food platter was luke warm and deep fried cheese should be served hot in my opinion before they congeal.

The waiter who mainly served us was a great character and helpful when choosing. The atmosphere was cosy but bustling.

I would have enjoyed this more if we were not reminded several times that we only had the table for 1.5 hours. The first time was when they called to confirm the booking, the second time as soon as we entered the restaurant and the third time was half an hour away from table evacuation time. Spoiled my experience and that together with the average food itself would result in me not making this my first choice when in the area again.
