  • "I love buffalo mozzarella and the smoked version of it called "Provola" is unbelievable. The food is, needless to say authentic Italian at its best. Prosciutto, salame, mortadella are all of the highest quality you can find served with warm focaccia bread. The service is great, and the staff is really friendly. Can't miss this place!"

  • "I come to Century City once a year for a conference and tried Obika last year and really loved it. So when I came out this year I knew right where to go. The food is great and the menu is unique it was really quiet (which I like sometimes) and the wine was perfect. Definitely an Italian Tapas type place in the sense that if you go with a group get several things and share......it's all great. Service was above and beyond (thanks Jessica)."

  • "This is a wonderful place, popular in Italy where the Milan location overlooks the Duomo. In LA it suffers from a name that sounds more like a local sushi bar than an Italian place. It also suffers from its location steps from the food court at the Century City Mall. If you can get past all of that, you are in for a treat. The pizza dough is flown in from Italy as are the cheeses, etc. The service is friendly and they and the food make you feel like you are in Italy."

  • "I never had dinner at a Mozzarella Bar. Have the trio of mozzarella along with some of the side. Bonus on Thursday night was 50% bottle wine. For two of us rather than order two glasses at $16 each we had a lovely bottle of the same wine at $58/2 or $29. The special, the "Nudie" which was essentially the center of a ravioli without the pasta was creative, low carb and rather tasty."

  • "Surprisingly disappointing. I took a friend here for her birthday. I had never been to the Century City location, but I frequent the one at the Beverly Center. My friend and I had reservations at another restaurant, but opted to go to Obika as they were starting a brunch menu AND we both LOVE burrata. Well, my friend ordered Eggs Benedict, but they were out of Canadian Bacon/Ham. Um, we arrived at 11:30 a.m. when they opened. This was one of only 4 items on the brunch menu. I opted to get the Burrata Sampler with all three burratas so that my friend could try them. They were out of the smoked burrata---a main item on the menu. Anyway, I doubt I will ever go to this location again though the service and atmosphere were pleasant."

  • "Love this place, not crazy about the location. It can get a bit noisy depending on the day and time, but worth the try. It has become one of my most favorite restaurants for Italian food. Love, love their mozzarella! I can have just that with their amazing wines. The pasta is cooked to perfection, never over cooked, their veggie pizza is my favorite too. Service is great, friendly and knowledgeable."

  • "Enjoyed their patio dining this time, and it was lovely! The food at Obika is always great. Got the pizza this time. It looked and smelled wonderful, but the sauce was lacking - tasted watered down. Stick with their pasta dishes."

  • "The cheeses are so fresh and the pasta is cooked al dente, so it is the best of all worlds. It tastes authentic."

  • "I have dined here weekly for the last year and the food is always fresh and delicious. I recommend the prosciutto pizza, lasagna, Branzino, and filet. The mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes are as addictive as cr*ck. This place is truly a gem."

  • "And I was chagrined to discover there was no obvious way to cancel the reservation. I thought that was rude of me, but I blame Open Table. I would think that would be something the restaurants would care about."

  • "We arrived after work on a Monday and asked to sit outside. We were told we couldn't because the waiter outside had too many customers. The weather was great and so they should have expected more people to sit outside and put another waiter outside. We were surprised at such a response and a bit upset. They seated us indoors where we were the only ones. I ordered the prosciutto pizza which the waiter recommended - being their most popular. It was served luke warm and didn't have any flavor. I tried the trio sampler for dessert. The Chocolate cake was terrible and tasted like compressed sawdust. My friend's ravioli was such a small portion for the $16. The prices are too expensive and the quality of food is not good. We wouldn't go back."

  • "The mozzarella is really awesome. I always get the classica and the burrata and love it. The trio di pesti--especially the black olive pesto--is excellent, too. One of my favorite restaurants."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "The food served at Obiko never disappoints. We started with bruschetta and I Tagligieri. The I Tagligieri requires well refined taste buds but the bruschetta is always a good choice. We followed with eggplant parmigiana that was delicious and a marguerite pizza that hit the spot. can only wish I had a menu in front of me to help with the spelling of this review."

  • "I started with the Cold Organic Tomato Soup. After adding a bit of salt, it was quite tasty. The next course was Pizza Fresca. The crust and cheese on this pizza are among the best I have ever tasted. The service was a little slow, but wait staff is friendly. I will definitely return to Obika."

  • "Many people don't realize that one of L.A.'s BEST Italian restaurants is located near the food court at the Century City Mall. Obika IS authentic Italian cooking at its finest. The freshest ingredients. A wine list unlike any other. Desserts that make me want to revisit regularly. Do yourself a favor. Make the trip to Century City Mall. Free validated parking too! Obika is the best."

  • "One of our faves in Italy. Not the same here. The food was cold and not very good. They were understaffed and The server was overwhelmed. We were hoping for better, since It's right next to the movies. That would have been convenient. It's much better for lunch, though."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Finally tried Obika - the name had scared me off because I thought there'd be nothing but mozzarella. Not that I don't love mozzarella, but there's only so much you can eat. Turns out the salad was great, the chicken was healthy and light and the mozzarella...yup, it was fresh and you can almost pretend you're in Positano. My new go-to for Century City."

  • "The food taste was outstanding but ....... we thought the prices were out of line with most of the portion sizes and given, the location in a shopping mall-- the pricing seemed out of line especially for the pizza, the lasagna, and the salami add-on to the burrata. Only The burrata itself seemed to be priced appropriately for the portion size."

The mozzarella tasting platter was a great way to try a few things. Our party of 3 shared that, a pasta & a side of heirloom tomatoes. It was just enough to take the edge off. The tiramisu was outstanding!"

  • "Don't let the name Okiba fool you. It is a mozzarella bar! The food is good, the service is great and the wine and beer list is all italian, so it is fun to try something different. We like meeting friends there at Century City before a movie for a relaxed dinner, or after, if we want to dine. They also have a patio area for nice nights. We will definitely go back."
