The star of our menu is the freshest mozzarella di bufala DOP from Campania, a must-order whether you prefer classic, smoked or creamy stracciatella. Take a seat at our long mozzarella bar and watch small plates of the finest artisan Italian produce being prepared. Our menu represents our culinary pilgrimage across Italy, where we find sweet datterini tomatoes, San Miniato black truffles and culatello di Zibello, the king of salumi. Our more substantial dishes are based on traditional dried pasta from Gragnano, silky fresh pasta made with Italian flour and fresh eggs, or slow-risen pizza dough using stoneground Petra flour.
Obicà Poland Street belongs to a family of restaurants founded in Rome in 2004. They all serve fresh, simple Italian food, but our Soho restaurant is special because of its long mozzarella bar, downstairs dining room with its own bar, and excellent central location. Visit us for aperitivo, a relaxed, authentic Italian meal with friends, or just to enjoy our super-fresh mozzarella.

Once called Obika, these ‘Mozzarella bars’ – part of an international chain – are “much better than many in the pizza and pasta market”, and are tipped for “grabbing a glass of wine with enjoyable small bites”.
“For some reason they’ve changed their name (from Obika)”, but these ‘Mozzarella bars’ “make a solid choice for some excellent produce and a drink or two”, and win tips for their superior pizza too.
