Mozzarella Bar Experience

SquareMeal Review of Obicà Mozzarella Bar – Canary Wharf

A highly regarded chain in its native Italy, mozzarella specialist Obicà is now making its mark in London. Like its sleek, modernist siblings across the globe, it takes the simplicity, convenience and presentation of a sushi bar and applies it to hand-made cheese from premium buffalo milk. The stuff pops up in colourful paninis, ciabattas, focaccia and salads, with variation in the shape of seasonal soups (perhaps pumpkin with amaretti cookies), bresaola with fennel, and a host of pastries; otherwise get your sweet fix from crema di ricotta with honey, orange and pine nuts. We’ve found that you’re best to stick to what they do best: the mozzarella is unctuous, creamy and delicately delicious, but other options don’t always deliver to the same extent. Espresso, macchiato and hot chocolate are the drinks of choice alongside wines, beers and Italy-inspired cocktails.

Luncheon Vulture platinum reviewer 20 May 2015

Have now spent a lunch and a dinner at Obica, and both were very agreeable but is a place for an informal and fairly speedy meal being that it is not the most comfortable places to while away time. Tables are absolutely rammed together so if you are a deux, be careful not to sit near a larger or loud party! That said, the menu is great, our platter was beautifully presented and with an Italian-centric wine list with many reasonably priced bottles, it's hard to go wrong. Service could have been a bit warmer and muzak a tad quieter (am I getting old?) but no qualms about recommending it or returning again.
