Not at all anything like the experience you get in Rome or NYC.

The food was good and atmosphere was great with the open patio doors, created an indoor/outdoor feel throughout the restaurant.

Beautiful spot on Sunset Plaza with a great wine list and fantastic appetizers. They are famous for mozzarella imported from Italy. That's a must try. I had a nice branzino, too. Lovely street side seating and at night it's romantic with candles and nice lighting. Great view in back too!

Took two of my Italian friends visiting from central Cal. They don’t get to enjoy authentic Italian food anymore since moving, they were very very pleased! I was too! Everything was delicious, restaurant is beautiful, views are beautiful, and not as noisy as you would think sitting right on Sunset Blvd. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu and she kept checking in on us! Portions are perfect, we ordered a lot for the table to taste but felt satisfied and not stuffed. Everything was delicious and priced very fair!

2nd time dining here. Place feels like a tourist trap with no vibe. Food was fine, nothing memorable just not terrible. Kids like the pasta so that's why we went. But for an adult meal would rather spend money on a more memorable meal.

I am hundred percent italian and I brought here a group of friends visiting from Italy. We all were dying to eat some authentic food and real mozzarella. This place is a good place if you want to eat good appetizers and pasta with authentic ingredients but it’s NOT the place fo neither real mozzarella nor buttata or ricotta. Honestly, I eat WAY better mozzarella at Costco!
So, we were very disappointed when it came to the reason why this place even opened...to sell authentic mozzarella! Nope.
Furthermore, if you are on a diet, definitely come here....portions are ultra small. Maybe a 3 years old child could feel satisfied but not a tween or an adult. You get up still hungry.
Beside poor quality cheese (even the cannoli were awful because the ricotta was some melted cheese that has nothing to do with ricotta), the service was the worst. We suspect the waiter was new...not just to the restaurant but to the profession! He had no idea of how to open the bottle of wine. We showed him. He didn’t know the menu or what the plates were about. But again...there is always a first time so we think he was just trying to check if he wants to be a waiter and he’ll learn like all things.
The wine list is great. All from Italy.
The pasta dishes were authentic, with spaghettoni cacio and Pepe being super delicious.
It’s noisy if you sit outdoor but traffic noise is totally normal in sunset plaza. Although appetizers, pasta and wine were excellent, we would no go back because back because it’s pricy for a place that serves your ultra small portions.

The service was awful. Asked for plain ice water. 3 glasses came. 5 min later the 4th. 2 were sparkling. We all asked for ice when we asked for the water. Another 10 min she came w 1 glass of ice for 4 ppl. Ordered cocktails. That was about 15 min wait. Obica famous for this. Not a person sitting at bar. It always happens. You lose our on us having a 2nd, 3rd round cuz it takes so long. Don't u make the most $ on beverage? The busmen were good. 3 pasta dishes good. One ice cold. They bring 3 drinks then 5 min later the 4th. Same w entrees. We come there all the time, I believe most mgrs and wait staff know us. Unless we have Nicola or one of the girls, not the one from the other night, service sucks. You should get cocktails RIGHT out, ,,, the wait is crazy and u r losing $$ The other night was $244 plus tip for four people it felt like it should have been $80. I'm sorry to say I will maybe give it one more try, and if it not vastly improved we are done. It irked me to even give the 20% tip. What is the general management doing? The people above Mikela, Dorian? Your wait staff in general (not Nikole) needs major training. As dies your bartender service. So disappointed

The portions were extremely small compared to prior trip. My partner and I shared and we did not feel the prices were worth the amount of food that obica served us.

We loved everything about Obica except the street noise. In fairness, we asked to sit outside, so the noise couldn’t really be helped. Except for that one tiny thing, it was a wonderful and memorable dining experience. We tried many different dishes, but we’ll be back to try the ones we didn’t!

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!
