Buzzy place with fun cocktails and good but not great food for the price. I’d prefer to return for cocktails and appetizers which there are many varieties including multiple mozzarella options. Pizza we had with zucchini was very greasy, pasta portions are small
Great for couples, events or groups
Fresh ingredients and delicious everything!
Nice Restaurant. Impossible to have a discussion with noise level.
Very relaxed environment, attentive service, and fabulous food and wine. We took our family here and all agreed it was a great choice. The mozzarella sampler was great and the pizza huge - would definitely recommend this restaurant.
This was a last minute find for our family. It wasn't really what we were looking for in terms on "traditional" NY pizza, but we were very pleased with the food! The pizza crust was perfectly light and crisp and the ingredients very fresh.
This is not the place for you if you are looking for a slice of cheese or pepperoni pizza, but it is if you are looking for a big step up from a $1 slice and some other great menu options.
The waiter was invasive and rude...trying to push us every 30 seconds to order something new.
Great for happy hour and burrata
Made a 945pm reservation and upon arrival after being seated the waiter looked at his watch and asked if we knew what we wanted to order because the kitchen closes at 10pm. I replied, why accept a 945 if the kitchen closes at 10? His response thats just want they do. Needless to say they rushed the food out. Its a shame cause the food was pretty good.
I would recommend for dinner 100%. Brunch menu was great but not excellent !
We had a very nice evening! The staff was really friendly.
I have a broken ankle and they could not have been more kind about finding me a comfortable seat. The pizza and salad were delicious.
We had a great pre-show meal at Obica! The cheeses were outstanding. Our entrees were good too - my companion loved the chicken milanese. I had a prosciutto-arugula pizza which was good too. It was a great evening!
Great mozzarella selection. Amazing Italian hamburger option - surprising menu find.
Unfortunately very bad service. Great staff but not enough people.
Fantastic food, wine list, and service. Ambiance is fun too!
Fun with out of town guests
Staff are friendly, food are good.
We will suggest friends too
Always a pleasure dining at Obica -- there is nothing quite as delicious as mozzarella and burrata from Italy! Their pizza, pasta, tiramisu and cappuccino were all excellent!!
Terrific staff - excellent food, amazing butternut squash soup and of course mozzarella - manager comped us a dessert We had a great experience.
Overall great experience with excellent service. Highly recommend.
Great fresh food. Great wine list. Very warm and friendly service. Would go again for sure.
I’ve recommend obica to several friends and we all agree. This place is simply fantastic. Dinner is always delicious and the service is always quick and pleasant, no matter who is serving us. I gave this place 5 stars hands down.
A stylish interior, delightful staff and well made cocktails.
Obica has a very friendly and accommodating staff. The food os delicious and the wine suggestions on point.
Magnum wine is very nice. Good service. Food is good.
Good food and cocktails. The pizza is delicious! The duck Ragu pasta was great as wl
1st New York vacation - we now Obica already from Milan. :-)
Caught them on a bad day - the pizza oven wasn't working. But lunch was good, service very good. Straight up Italian.
We went to Obica to celebrate a birthday and we ordered about 4-5 apps and each person had a dish as well. My biggest complaint is that the portions here are embarrassingly small. I would say the dishes are more “tasters” than actual dishes. We each got a pasta dish as well and I thought that they had mistakenly split the portion between me and my friend. They give you a mere spoonful or two of pasta, which really baffles me because we’re not talking about caviar or filet mignon here. My friends had to order additional side dishes as we were all still hungry. In fact I left the restaurant very hungry in the end, which is crazy considering the number of dishes we ordered and this is an Italian restaurant. In addition to this, the prices are so so high for what you’re actually getting. Awful value. Try one of the many other places in the city instead.
I eat there often but had an odd experience. After being seated the manager asked us if we would move to the back because the people at that table had noise issues. I made my resv over a month ago and I had people visiting from Texas, we weren’t a walk in. I didn’t like that the manager said more than once “could we be hospitable” as if we were the ones complaining about the table. We moved to the worst table in the back corner. We had a comp round of drinks and appetizer but I found the experience off putting. It was rude to ask us to move and confront us as soon as we sat and ordered drinks. There was no noise issues, no one wanted the back corner table. I’m not sure why in the full restaurant we were picked to move. The manager is and African American gentleman with chin length hair. A practice that shouldn’t be repeated
Noisey. Was given worse table in the restaurant down the back of the room after having made a reservation weeks earlier. Staff seemed uninterested and going through the motions. Worse Italian experience I have had in New York.
Gathering to celebrate good friends.
The food was not as good as expected. Definitely leaves something to be desired.
This is one of my go-to restaurants because it is not fussy, not expensive, not noisy, but delicious and classy.
I have been here before and the food was always normally good. I love cheese so I keep coming back for the burrata/mozzarella selection. The burrata was delicious as always, but the bread tasted stale (it was very hard), the eggplant main dish was inedible and when we told the waitress about it, she wasn't able to do anything about it, and the ravioli just fine. The prices are too high for the food to be garbage. I was very disappointed and won't be back!
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
