OUR PHILOSOPHY

‘O ver comes from the Neapolitan dialect to mean: “Truth”

We do our best to reflect this with the authentic, delicious and healthy food we freshly prepare every day.

A Real Italian menu with a strong Neapolitan soul.

‘O ver uses the unique ingredient of Pure Sea Water,
which is extracted from the purest areas of the Mediterranean.

Less sodium and more minerals make the food lighter and easy to digest.
Pizzas, bread and all the seafood dishes are made with Pure Sea Water.
We directly buy our ingredients from small independent Italian producers and we only use the best local suppliers.

We only serve Authentic Neapolitan Wood fired pizza, pasta from Gragnano, fresh fish from Billingsgate market & the best farm-bred British meats.

Every single dish is handmade with love and patience by our chefs, in full respect of the tradition. Simple recipes, only the best ingredients and a lot of Passion, less is more.

Lovely food, great service. Portions are on the small side and pricey but if you are looking to splurge for an occasion a very nice resteraunt to do so.

Same great food and the same great staff! Had a lovely dinner here outside - lots of blankets to keep diners warm as well as some heaters kept us warm enough. Menu has plenty of choice and the wine list is good. One of my favourite Italian restaurants in the area and it never disappoints!

Cold outside no heaters although they did offer blankets. As it was very cold looking forward to piping hot food but it was lukewarm at best. Taste was fine but my friend had meatballs (came just with bread). He asked for plate of pasta to compliment and was told they couldn’t do it as dishes were all pre made. A first when an Italian restaurant can’t do you a bowl of pasta!

Am normally a big fan and staff great, but recent experience was a little disappointing... I understand that restaurants are trying to recover and need to squeeze in two sittings in an evening, but I felt very aggressively rushed. The turnaround time was in the original booking confirmation, I was reminded on the phone, we were reminded at least twice when we arrived, another 2 times during main meal, then 15 minutes before we were due to vacate table were told that the next party hadn’t arrived yet, so we could order a coffee but would have to move to a standing table if they turned up (why should we move early?!). I can’t stand - I have long covid. We gave up and left.

I am local and I have supported this place over the last 12 months. Whole thing just made me feel very unwanted.

Very disappointing experience. The food was good but nothing special for the price we paid and service was very poor. We waited around 30 minutes for drinks order and felt very rushed at the end. The receptionist didn’t present our bill and just passed through card machine, we kindly asked to see our bill and needed a minute cause we wanted to split, in the meantime another person approached us, the third time I gave up and paid that all. Sadly it wasn’t birthday dinner as I expected.

Only outdoor seating available due to Covid restrictions so sat on pavement next to busy Southwark road. Good buzz nonetheless. Food was very good despite having to wait longer than desired for it to arrive. Table booking was strictly limited to 90 mins, so they couldn’t offer us any dessert. Staff were friendly and offered blankets when it got cooler but unfortunately the blankets were never delivered. Would return based on quality of food but would expect some improvements in service levels when indoor area is open again.

I had gone for my birthday and had reserved prior. Upon reaching there I was made to wait 20 minutes whilst people who did not have revelations were being catered too. I was then given a table finally. The food was brought in separately even though we requested it all together. The waitress was new and was not fully trained. She did fumble a lot with the orders and almost spilt wine over. Since it was my Brithday, my wife requested a dessert with a happy birthday on it, and we waited for 20 minutes but this didn’t arrive. We had cleared the bill by then so they didn’t seem to bother. And we were unable to take off the service charge added. Extremely awful experience. The food was also cold and the blankets offered were dirty. Did not expect this at all. Wouldn’t go again

Great food, super helpful staff but it is on the main road so eating outside is a bit awkward. However, the music from st felix place (across the road) reached the restaurant to overcome the cars.

Both really enjoyed the food. My tuna with pistachio was cooked perfectly and my wife had the sea bass which was very fresh. Forced to sit outside by crazy regulations but nevertheless staff were very friendly and helpful with warm blankets on-hand.

Came here whilst in London for my girlfriends 21st, we both can be fussy eaters and have eaten various pizzas over the years and this was honestly the best one I have ever tasted. The service was very personal and it felt very romantic and private inside. The value for money was fantastic, we paid £12.50 for our pizza and for some comparison a pizza from our hotel (which is as more like a frozen pizza in oven job) was £14 so I was very happy with the price. The staff were very polite and welcoming I would definitely recommend.

Honestly the best pizza I’ve eaten in London so far, I had the diavola, with Spianata Calabrese and N'duja, it was packed full of flavour absolutely amazing.
Same as dessert, can’t recommend enough.

Can’t wait to try more of the menu soon 😃

O’ver has also done great pizza as well as some pasta dishes but have now expanded their menu a little and it’s made it an even better local choice! Started with an incredible beef tartare, before an excellent pizza and the most amazing pici cacio e pepe made even better with the addition of some truffle - WOW! Solid wine list, good desserts and charming service round out a great dining experience

Had a lovely time for dinner, the only negative was as were were leaving and as we had paid the waitress serving us rudely asked us to leave when we were already doing so (coats on & bill was paid). It’s a shame because up until that point the service had been lovely and attentive. Food was great, ambience was lovely. The situation at the end of wouldn’t stop me from going back.

Beautiful food, great staff and intimate atmosphere. Quite pricey but maybe that’s because we aren’t used to London prices.
