Great food and lovely waiter.
Unclear information regarding the complimentary pizetta between 5pm & 8pm. This is only available if you sit at the bar!

Booked dinner pre-theatre and was the perfect choice being a stones throw from The Palladium. Our waitress was friendly, service was excellent as was the food and it all arrived quickly. Can't fault the food, staff or the restuarant.

Used to be such a great place but their food standards have definitely dropped. I ordered the burrata burger and the meat was really cheap and so over cooked that I just couldn’t eat it. My friend got a pizza which was fairly average too.

Good place if you’re looking for a catch up with an old friend but somewhere to go if you’re looking to impress someone.

The food is very good but quite pricey for simple dishes like pasta and pizza. We were a group of 6 and the staff struggled to keep up with service for drinks and food.
Love the truffle burrata. I felt that the chicken salad for £16.50 was sparse and not much nicer than some cheap Italian chains. But the wine is good. The other mains were good. Overall would visit again.

The food is amazing as always! The venue is perfect for everyday dining or catching up with families and friends! We are frequent guests of Obica.

Though the last time a number of issues spoilt overall impression: the hostess that met us at the door was very aggressive and snappy, the waiter kept forgetting our orders and left the table unattended for minimum 1.5 hrs. And it was freezing cold because of the aircon.

Looking forward to service improvements!

After about 10 minutes of sitting there, no one came to our table. So we left.

Really nice venue, spacious and very central. Typical Italian restaurant with nice starters and good main courses. I would recommend the pizzas, I think they are their strong suit. Pastas are ok but not exceptional. Staff is generally nice and very helpful. Nice to go with a group of up to 6 people and children friendly.

awful service - repeatedly had to get up to find a staff memberto ask for things. repeatedly forgot to bring us items including main course as waiter had forgotten to place order. when main course eventually arrived, the food was sadly cold. not good value for the portion sizes, very plain tasting - i enjoy italian food but this was a disappointment.

Obica is a really good place to chill and have some good italian dishes. The cold and hot starters are very good and the pizza is one of the best I had in London.

The food is nothing to write home about though two of our party said the carbonara was good. Service was OK though about half of their beer selection was unavailable. Good location for a pre-theatre bite before the London Palladium.

Food great. Toilets more what you’d expect in a night club than a nice restaurant - broken door handles meant one of our group got stuck in the loo unable to get out. Staff appeared unfazed when told about this - toilet was in the same state an hour later when we left; no sign saying out of order so anyone could get stuck in it again.

But the food was great!

We had a fab time at Obicà. We arrived slightly late which the restaurant were relaxed about.

We shared a huge mozzarella ball for starters (when in Rome!) which was delightful (the 250g was a good portion between 4), and each enjoyed different mains.

The best part were the serving staff - all super friendly, polite but chatty and attentive but not over bearing.

We would definitely return as we were made to feel so welcome, thank you!

The restaurant was really nice, food was lovely & staff friendly. My only problem was i had booked to receive a free glass of wine with main meals which I didn’t receive, when i asked about this when the bill was presented i was told I should have said so at the start! Nowhere on my booking confirmation did it say this & in the past when i have used another company to book offers i have not had to do this as it had always been known to the restaurant ad it is on the booking so this was quite annoying as it added an additional £15 cost to the bill which was unexpected

Currently you cannot buy better pizza. There's no place.
The other dishes are amazing as well.

It’s always a good experience at Olbica. The food is good quality and reasonably priced. The location of the Poland Street branch is perfect for the Palladium.

Our waitress was amazing, very knowledgable and just an overall pleasure. I think the food is expensive for what you get £30 for a plate of cold cuts and cheese is expensive but for me the amazing service made up for this.

Nice small plates and selection of delicious mozzarella. We enjoyed their cocktails and fresh pasta, but found the desserts and service unimpressive.
