Would go for the mozzarella alone Had the “experience “ with meats and cheese was great. Food receives 4 stars because 2 of our party of 9 had the pasta with duck ragu which was recommended by the waiter. It came out cold and cold duck just always seems to me just a little off

We love Obica, not only for the food (I'm Northern Italian - so I know my Italian food), but love that many of the staff are from Italy (our last waitress was from the same town of Modena) .. so they know their wine and food as well. The Mozzarella can't be beat, but they also have a great selection of European Wines and specials that are just fantastic. Highly recommend ANY of their locations although the Sunset Blvd can be a bit noisy outside due to the traffic.

We had such a wonderful meal here! Everything was absolutely delectable. We ordered the Mozzarella Bar Experience plus extra prosciutto and bread, and two pizzas for a group of 5, plus dessert to share. Still thinking about how fresh the cheese was! And the prices are very reasonable, particularly for West Hollywood. Service was also outstanding, the manager was kind enough to give us lots of information and recommendations, our waitress was very attentive, and even the bar tender came over to explain some of the cocktails. We were very impressed and are absolutely coming back - need to try the brunch next!!

Where to begin! Started with burrada and their specialty bread DELICIOUS! Cacio e Pepe to die for and tagliatelle with duck ragú was divine. Wine list was excellent and the Italian White I had was light and crisp and excellent with meal. Topped off meal with a tiramisu that hit the spot. Service was excellent and manager came by to introduce himself and ensure our experience was delightful. Can’t wait for our next visit!

Reception service and atmosphere are great in this restaurant.
However quality of food was mediocre.
Risotto was watery, lacking taste. Pasta with duck ragu was ok but not great.
Mozzarella was cold.
Generally good but food needs a lot of improvement.

Very commercial kind of restaurant. Albeit Valentine’s Day and I’m sure busy, we had poor service, a cold setting (even after asking to be moved and promised we would not be affected by outside door constantly opening and closing), mediocre/overcooked/mildly flavored food, overall deflating.

Honestly not impressed. Service was very slow and seemed like there was some confusion or lack of communication amongst the wait staff. Not to mention seating was really tight. They tried to create a large table next to us to accommodate the additional guests. The guest’s hood was so close to our table that when he leaned back it touched my wine glass... food was also nothing to write home about. Maybe my expectations were too high?

Michele Fadda and his team provided a stellar birthday celebration. They went out of their way to celebrate and accommodate the five of us in the rear of the restaurant which has the great view. Our waiter and bus people were phenomenally wonderful as was the consistently great food. Do not miss this neighborhood restaurant that just happens to be smack in the middle of the internationally famous Sunset Strip.

I eat out a lot and rarely bother to write reviews but this place deserved one!

I cam with a large group to try out their dineLA menu. We didn't end up eating the set menu and just ordered individual dishes instead but the experience was amazing. The owner and other staff took the time to fully explain the menu (80% of their ingredients are imported from Italy!). Service was exceptional, food was divine and the view was beautiful. Definitely coming back here again on a warmer day to enjoy the outdoor patio.

protip: there's free parking in the private lot in the back!!!!! ya i know crazy for LA
