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.

No tuna tartare - We were seated, presented with the menu and left alone for about 7-8 mins to decide what we wanted. Only after I had made my decisions and made my order I was told there was no tuna at all. Great start.

Capesante starter - I ended up ordering the scallop, I was presented with two pieces of scallop that were so small that they were dwarfed by my fork. The entirety of the starter plate was able to fit on to the fork for one mouthful, Each scallop was the size of a ctrl key on a keyboard and that's being generous. For £13!

Black Tortellone - For £22 you get 4 small pasta parcels on a comedically large plate. Think of supermarket ravioli, now think of 4 pieces of that on a massive plate.

Bread for the table - They forgot the olive oil and vinegar and the salt and pepper, they later supplied those things but the salt shaker was empty. The bread was definitely stale, it was hard and really, really dry and chewy, almost on the verge of being made in to croutons no doubt.

Mediterranean Salad - For £12 we were given £1 worth of leaves with next to no olive oil or vinegar dressing, 3 cherry tomatoes, 5 grated shreds of cheese and 1/20 of an avocado sliced thin to make it look more substantial when heaped together and presented on the plate.

Chinotto“Neri” (Bitter citrus similar to an orange) is how it was described on the menu. - I would challenge anyone to find the difference between this drink and Asda own brand concentrated orange juice. Seriously it had that artificial tangy taste that gives you a sore throat, really cheap and nasty after taste.

Service was weird - A bit all over the place.

Strippers - Nearly naked ladies/ strippers wondering around downstairs for a private event, I have no issue with that but there were kids in the restaurant at the time.

And the cost of this magical evening was £50 per head! We really regretted coming here, it ruined what was an otherwise great day for us.

This restaurant keeps delivering some of the best Italian food we’ve had in London… United Colours of Naples starter, pasta, gnocchi, baba - all were absolutely delicious. On top of that the room is nicely decorated and the service is very attentive and friendly!

Food was faultless and absolutely delicious. Officially the best scallops, stuffed courgette flowers and pasta puttanesca I’ve ever eaten. A lot of people eating pizzas which looked equally yummy. This is a really nice place but they need to tighten up the service which was a bit slack and the house wine was sold out.

A wonderful restaurant with amazing ambience and even better food. The calamari was perfect and the Calzone was a delight; the dough itself was somehow both cushiony and airy. Service was also impeccable, we arrived 10 minutes before the kitchen was due to close and were still allowed to order food. Only hiccup were the cocktails, my O Ver Daiquiri tasted more like a Long Island Ice Tea and my friend’s Tommy Sea Margarita was...an acquired taste. Overall, I’ll definitely be back very soon!

Went for dinner at O Ver last night. Food and service was fantastic and definitely recommend. Our table was delayed by about 15 minutes but they gave us a free glass of fizz so we were happy.

Will definitely be coming back at some point in the future

This restaurant needs to get its act together: stressed staff, very slow service, requests not fulfilled, had to wait for our table without being offered drinks then were told rudely that we had to vacate our table for waiting clientele! Appalling in every sense!

Setting & food outstanding! Such a beautiful restaurant. On this occasion it felt very understaffed however, took a long time to get served. This coupled with being rushed off the table in quite a rude manner was disappointing.

It was lovely to be back at O'ver which has a friendly atmosphere and wonderful food, and I love the setting in Borough. We shared the Naples antipasti which is great and had amazing pasta dishes. The app is a bit clunky but otherwise everything was as we remembered

Wonderful evening. Me and my partner celebrated our anniversary here and we could not have found a better place. Food was wonderful and arrived quickly and hot! Staff were attentive and warm, and made sure we wanted for nothing. The restaurant was clean and fresh feeling, and felt very covid secure for the opening of indoor dining. Wonderful location and easy to find too. We cannot wait to return, thank you to the team for making our first night out so special.

This was lovely. We were outside and I was a bit worried that there would be traffic noise, but although we were on a main road, there was very little traffic (it was a Saturday) and we were well back so we didn't notice it at all. We were under a canopy with heaters! so very warm and dry. The staff were lovely and really looked after us, and the food was delicious. For a first lunch out after lockdown it felt like a very special experience. I highly recommend the organic prosecco, we treated ourselves to a bottle and really enjoyed it.

This place have every possibility to be really nice but the staff are over-eager and push you to order.
The staff also keeps the wine bottle away from your table and keeps running up and replenish you glass ALL THE TIME which just is a very nasty way of selling more wine.
I hate this, and I’m not afraid to speak up, so I asked the waiter to leave the bottle with us so we could take it a bit easy, but he pretended not to understand - TWICE (despite me actually gesturing onto the table for him to leave it.
Terrible and stressful.

The food is nice, the design is beautiful. It’s a shame with the insensitive and up selling service.

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!
