Excellent food and service. The tiramisu is just the BEST. Great place to eat before a movie or while shopping. We are repeat customers.

We have been coming to Obica for years. Since ownership switched many corner have been cut and although the service is great the food is no longer high quality Italian food. They were out of Italian beer but offered my husband a corona which seemed odd and the food was not good. The pasta was no longer fresh and made in house and the portions were much smaller. We are so disappointed that we need to find another family friendly Italian restaurant to frequent.

Had a nice meal at Obica. Food and service were good. Had to wait too long for one item to arrive at the table (pizza) and timing/sequencing could have been better, but these are small things. All in all, a nice experience.

Loved the burratta and the pizza! Get the chicken if doing the dinela menu. Current wine special - a super Tuscan was delightful. Service was very good! Enjoy!

Came here on Christmas Day before the movies, had a reservation but that didn't seem to matter as they were just cleaning the table we were told 3 times then were seated at a table that was just vacated, wiped and we were seated (no silverware) received water and menus. Placed a drink order which was fine (although the cocktail had too much crushed ice). Placed our order. Finished our drinks. people sat next to us and ordered after us received bread and their appetizer (which was the same as we ordered). 30 minutes later they realized no food, asked about more drinks and the manager comped them. Cocktail came out but no wine 10 minutes to get the wine from the waitstaff and it was the wrong wine. TOld them that they responded, no it was just from the bottom of the bottle. Impossible with a Sauv Blanc. Didn't have time to argue, a half prepared appetizer came out (we know because we saw the other table get a completely plated one - grilled calamari) then immediately came out the pizzas and then, after that food arrived, came the bread. Had to ask for utensils. I have bad service at this place before but this was a never to return or recommend. Have had a great time telling people the experience.

Overpriced. Bad service. Small portions. Hostesses not helping in a busy dining room. This could be good, but needs a guiding hand.

This place has really gone downhill since it first opened. They seem understaffed and the food is quite mediocre. For the price it was one of the worst meals I've had in a while.

The food and drinks were incredible! We sat on the patio on a warm day, very nice. We had the mozzarella experience and paid a little more to get their truffle mozzarella, the salmon, tiramisu, and the vodka sorbet. Everything was delicious. They have a basil ginger martini that is so tasty. One of my fav places now!

High quality ingredients make this dining very delicious but prices are a bit high. Obica is a stand-alone place in this maze of a mall. It is next to H&M & Container Store!

My wife and I thought we were back in Florence. The food was that authentic. And the restaurant is in the Westfield Mall at Century City. We would never have guessed we had found a jewel.

It was good. Food is always delicious here and the service is on time and point. Family inside let their kids run around on the patio when we were the only ones and play and scream was a bit frustrating.

We've been frequenting Obica since it first opened. Every time we go it's like a mini trip to Italy. The food is fantastic ... the pizzas are especially authentic ... and we are always made to feel very welcome. Try it, you'll love it!

I have eaten at Obica several times and have always sat outside. It's cozy, no noise and perfect for "catch up" conversations with friends. The food has never disappointed, nor has the service. I will continue to return and definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a relaxing evening as I've described.

My table ordered 3 grilled chicken salads. All three came with severely under-cooked chicken. Our server was incredibly gracious and immediately took the plates away and brought back properly cooked chicken. However, I have been sick for the last 3 days. I did not have the chicken salad but had the eggplant parm.

Unfortunately, their pizza oven was broken so the lunch menu was severely limiting - no pizzas or paninis. Wait staff and hostess were pleasant but when we asked our server for alternatives since the pizza oven was broken, he never thought to ask his manager - only citing politely that he has no control over these things. Overall, still a good experience but manager should train the staff to be more flexible, think on their feet or advice them to call the manager when it's a question they cannot answer.

We had a good dinner, meeting up with friends heading there from different parts of LA. I’ve had lunch there before and non of us could deal with Eaterly. Obicà is a much easier, quiet yet popular space .
It was a cold night and as the patio isn’t heated we sat inside. Pizza oven was playing up so that was a shame as that’s what we wanted.

However had some appetizers and the burrata, kale and beet salad which were all excellent. We caught the happy hour too and the apperol spritz and Sicilian white wine on special were great. Waiting staff were great too.

Feels just like a warm and cozy Cucina Italiana, family and friends, right in the middle of Century City. Amazingly delicious Italian food. Our favorite! (This was a birthday for our best friend- so much fun!)

Asking if I'd recommend to a friend? I put Yes as the food was delicious, the server was very nice, and I'm guessing other visits could be better. We sat outside, which admittedly is a pretty small area, but quiet. Unfortunately it was a bit chilly and there were no heaters (or that we saw, and none was offered) which is pretty standard in L.A. In addition, the few rosemary plants along the back of the tented area were dead, not just not doing well, but legitimately dead! Really? Our server greeted us quickly, was very nice, and was attentive, however he did not seem super confident in his knowledge of the menu when we had a couple questions and although we ordered only three items he repeated just two when he confirmed our order. We rec'd our starter (the zucchini with mozzarella - DELICIOUS), but then he immediately brought our main dishes before we'd even started eating the zucchini. I was confounded and when he said if he took them back the kitchen would make entirely new plates, we just decided to have him leave them. He says he didn't know we wanted them separately - isn't that the idea of a starter or shouldn't he at least have asked if unsure? Our mains - the ravioli with black kale and the eggplant parm were also DELICIOUS. I did not love the wine (a $12 Badiola sangiovese/merlot) but that's on me. So, for $73 it was a lot for an "okay" experience - we get FAR greater food, service, and value for $80 at Westside Tavern, also including wine and dessert. I understand that each location has its own personality, but having eaten at Obica in Milan, I'd swear I was at two completely different restaurants (not just different locations of the same place).

Overpriced for what you get. Soup was warm, not hot. Considering it's a pizza bar, the pizza was below average, mushy, and certainly one of the least delicious I have had. When asked to add chicken to a pasta dish, it came on the side. 100% of restaurants add chicken into the pasta when I have asked before. Not very crowded when we were there, but the service was slow. Would not return.
