Yummy. Burrata was awesome :)
Obica serves some of the best food my husband and I have had in a long time. Everything was fresh and delicious. The service was excellent. Clearly the staff is well trained. Despite being busy, we were not rushed. Be forewarned as the noise level is quite high, making it difficult to have a conversation with table mates. However, the food makes up for the noise level.
Welcoming, lovely restaurant, great barkeep, Alec & service. Tolerable noise level.
Warm and friendly as always, food was delicious
OMG - so much fun. Went for a Blackboard Eats recommendation. Sat at bar for a happy hour drink special and never left. My friend and I made some new friends at the bar and stayed all night. The bartender K was super great and so was Fabrizio. We shared some of the pizzas and bruschetta were delish.. already planning our next visit with our new friends!
True Italian atmosphere
Honestly, I’ve been there many times and it was one of my go-tos in the area. However my recent 2 trips have left very little to desire. The soups (all of them so far), have barely any flavor and my parmigiana was under cooked. Never going back. :/. 2 visits that I have issues are enough for me.
I was disappointed. The food was slightly below average, under seasoned and lukewarm. Seemed halphazarzdly thrown together. Our waiter paid little attention to us, often sending other waiters or busboys to come attend to our needs. Found this deal on Pulsd- $99 for 3 courses. Not worth it at all, won’t be back.
Worst meal I’ve had in my time of living in NYC. The mozzarella tasted like glue. It was an inedible meal.
Food comes out way too fast. Makes me think that everything is already prepared and just thrown in the Microwave. I may be wrong and will give the benefit of the doubt, but it is served in less than 2 minutes. In fact, was probably just around 1 minute for our appetizers.
I recommend Obica because the food is very good.
Specialty wine was tawny. Food was OK, does not stand out in as far as either inventive or classic. Just fine. For the $$$, customers will expect more.
LA CATASTROPHE, FUYEZ !
Le pain, dur comme du bois, les salades sans sauces, les légumes grillés tout droit sortis du micro-ondes et j'en passe...
Habitués de longue date, à Milan, nous venions dîner avec plaisir à Flatiron... C'était la DERNIÈRE FOIS !
A post theater dinner with limited time, so menu choices were limited to small bites.. Food was served promptly and was excellent. This was our third visit and our previous experiences were consistent. Definately on the list of go to places.
Food and service were wonderful. The Burrata was perfect as always and I enjoyed the Eggplant Parmigiana.
Loved the uniqueness of the menu, and the ambiance.
Wish the mozzarella bar had a little more flare in its display! Was impressed with the wine list
The food was great. However, the service was very poor. We waited 26 minutes for the waiter to return to take our order and that was when my friend signal to someone to get our waiter. He came and then stated that he was giving us a few minutes. Clearly he doesn’t know what few means.
Also, the bartender was unpleasant. I believe the staff needs some training in customer service.
Won’t be back at that location.
Good deal at $21 for the 2 course meal. Mostly soup & salads but fresh and good and a beautiful restaurant.
Very good Italian spot with an obvious focus on different varieties of mozzarella. Appetizer Bufala mozzarella was excellent, though it would have been nice if it had more of an accompaniment than the bread they bring out to every table. The spinach lasagna was very good, if not spectacular. My wife's roast chicken was a bit better than that. Nice, modern romantic atmosphere. Youngish crowd. I wouldn't say it's the top Italian restaurant in an area that has a lot of very good options, but it's a solid choice, and I'm sure we'll be back.
Food was ok, very hot inside and too bright. Menu didn’t offer enough vegetarian options.
LOVED THE FOOD AND ATMOSPHETE! The waitress was so nice and helpful when trying to pick my foods and wine!
best place I've been in 5 years! deff going back the manager was great and servers were super knowledgeable.
La salade était vraiment basique, les portions pas assez copieuses. C’est extrêmement bruyant.
LOVE OBICA! It’s right next to the office and it’s always the first place people want to go for mid-day lunch or after work drinks. Obica has great food, the wait staff are polite, and the wine list is impeccable. Highly recommend.
My go to place. Eat at the bar. Quicker service and less noisy during lunch.
Nice atmosphere. Good service. Small portions relative to price, such as $24 for tiny pieces of cheeses in the mozzarella sampler. Hello! Give me a break! Can you spare it? Not going back. Poor value
The food was delicious and the service was wonderful too! I’ve been to Obica a couple of times and will keep going! Their pasta, pizza and salads are delicious!
Little bit pricey and not huge portions but overall great experience.
Great place for a business lunch - delicious food and easy to talk and hear yourselves!
Food was fantastic and service was excellent. Will definitely go back.
Happy hour. Emu is very disappointing and tasteless and expensive for what you get. Mozzarella bites are literally one mozzarella stick cut in 4 small pieces and cooked to death.
I absolutely LOVE this restaurant! The food is so delicious and authentic Italian. The staff is wonderful and super accommodating! Definitely worth a try. You won’t be disappointed!
I always recommend Obica' to any Italian visiting NYC as I like their food , ambience and service.
Last time I took a friend from the Caribbean Islands . I was so happy to learn that she loved polenta
with oxtail,a big and delicious dish. I had some good fish although I usually have pizza and a good salad
@ Happy Hour. I prefer that time because the price of wine is dicent.Usually I find the wine price so ridiculously high in Italian and French restaurant that I can never have 2 glasses with my dinner.
And that is the only problem I have with Obica' as well.
Loud corporatey environment. I guess that's good if you want to fill the noise during an awkward date or work happy hour, but it can be really difficult to have a regular conversation with the people you're dining with.
The cocktails aren't that great. The food is alright. We had a pasta that was simple but lacked flavor, and a beef tartar dish that was decent but nothing special. It was just overpriced for the quality received.
I'd recommend Boqueria for a similar ambience, with better value of price of food.
Valentine’s Day very nicely decorated and good service
Great service; food was unimpressive.
We have wanted to go into this vibrant neighborhood spot for so long. And finally did and everything was fabulous!! The food, service, ambiance--truly loved it and it will become a regular. We will also take out when we are in town. Thank You Obica!
My guests really LOVED this place. The hosts are super hospitable. The food was really excellent and the place was lively. No doubt lots of people have figured out this is a great place to go. I, as well as my guests will definitely be returning. GRAZIE!!!
Waiter was awesome and a nice guy.
