SquareMeal Review of
Obicà Mozzarella Bar – Charlotte Street
Obicà wears its heart on its menu: decorated with an annotated map of Italy, the provenance of many of the cheeses and meats available here is carefully illustrated, and echoed by knowledgeable staff. This Obicà (part of a group that spans the globe) is decorated in dark hues and dominated by a long bar, and presents a stripped-back option for diners looking for high-quality Italian produce to match a long list of the country’s wines. Majoring in mozzarella, the menu possesses a mighty six options, including powerfully smoky bufala affumicata or a whopping 1kg ball served with pesto and focaccia. Delicious meats include charcoal-roasted prosciutto and wine-cured culatello di Zibello ham, while a range of pizzas are made from stone-ground Petra flour. There are also pastas, soups, salads and desserts, and a Campari- and Prosecco-focussed cocktail list. If you’re looking for a classy, light meal, this is a safe bet.
