I really enjoyed Obicà, was my first time and luckily I could sit outside (lovely weather). Service and food was really good, got smoked salmon pizza (a bit too pricy for the small amount of toppings, was expecting a rich pizza), torta di Capri (highly recommend) and caffè shakerato (super!!). Went back another day and again the pizza was not rich of toppings, really good though! Next time I wanna try some pasta :) I was served by a Czech lady who could speak a bit of Italian which made the experience even better as I am Italian! I could see that the rest of the staff was dedicated and hard working too (worked in F&B before and I know how it can be). Well done and thank u for the great experience!

The food was good for the most part but we found the bread to be stale and felt that overall the food was very overpriced for what you get. The sharing platter was on the menu as enough for 2-4 ppl but was realistically only enough for 1 (everything was cut in half so this wouldn’t serve 4 at all). Staff were friendly however service was slow given there were only a handful of customers dining.

Great food, especially the grande tagliere. Only thing missing is an AC during real hot weather, but given it's part of a larger hall, it might be hard to achieve

As usual, the food was excellent with the stracciatella and cacio e pepe being stand out dishes. The service was really welcoming, adhering to safety standards and always attentive. Am looking forwards to going back soon.

The person at reception / who showed us to our table was quite rude. He was quite rude about the fact that we were 10 minutes late to our reservation. I said: We have a reservation for three people at 7.30. And he said: well, it’s 7.40. (It was 7.38 lol)
What kind of answer is that? I thought that was quite rude considering that we were about to spend money in that place. He then made a whole fuss about how he gave our table away but he’ll give us another. What was I supposed to do? Lie down and praise Jesus? If he had given the table away we would have gone somewhere else. Simple. No need to be rude. Won’t be returning.

Been here a few times. Came in the middle of the afternoon and needed to sit at a table so I could have a private chat with my son. Place was empty but waitress had to ask permission to allocate a table for four as she had tried to put us next to the only other diner

Starter which was supposed to have truffle, didnt. Both pasta dishes were congealed goop

Because of the emotional context of my lunch date, I didn’t complain but I did pop back the next day to comment. I was offered £3 for the non-truffle. Needless to say I didn’t accept and was told that I should have complained at the time (not appropriate for me at the time)

Won’t be re-visiting!!

The Gnocchi was extremely disappointing, and sadly so was the service
Make sure you request a table away from the rotating doors otherwise it can get really drafty
It’s a shame the food is not as good as I had hoped. I was told the pizza is good but haven’t tried it yet.
The fresh truffle pasta was not bad, but then again for that price I’d expect to be blown away and it was just okay

The pastas was very good, there was a nice portion of meat in the dish. It’s a mozzarella bar so I highly recommend ordering a starter. The mozzarella was delicious. We ordered a side of bread and received 6 small pieces for £4, we should have saved our carbs for the pasta. We enjoyed the glass of red wine, none of the choices include a carafe size. We will go back.

Food was reasonably priced & good. However, charging £8.50 for a bottle of Moretti is ridiculous. You always expect to pay more at a bar/restaurant than you would if you were buying from a supermarket, but not that much more!

Dreadful lunch. Despite booking 3 weeks beforehand we were given a table outside the restaurant in a noisy, cold exit corridor. My coffee was cold. An Italian restaurant that can't make coffee? Avoid!

It was clear our waitress would rather have been somewhere else and her attitude certainly overshadowed the good food and pleasant location. The loos were a disgrace. I doubt I’d go back, I was sat right next to a speaker, which was also annoying although playing pleasant music.

Close to Canary wharf tube. The different mozerallas are the attraction. We went at 6.30 (pre an devent at the O2 and it was rammed with city workers for their Friday evening drinks. Service was good and food was fine. If I were to go again I might go at a quieter time and be more focused on the mozerellas.

Good for lunch in Canary Wharf. Food fresh and enjoyable. However, the menu is somewhat hard to follow. The location is ok, but it’s essentially in a corridor and as such the ambience suffers.
