Great friendly service 👍
One o the best locations in LA....their cocktails are off-the-hook amazing! great people watching....
Highly recommend the chicken Milanese.
It is wonderfully L.A.! Half of the cost, not including tip and tax, was for wine. They had a special relationship with an Italian winery so a wonderful Barolo was ordered instead of a regular wine list entry which has some beauties too. We were not in a hurry and eating outside in November with a space heater was perfect. Service was neither great nor under the microscope so it worked out very well. Food critics are too often full of themselves and their own.... Sure, it is pricey compared to the standard fare. Want to get engaged? Want to impress your child or child's fiancé with casual finesse? Want to take your own relationship up a notch or just feel right that life is good? Just want to not be bothered and have a relaxed time? Be happy, be surprise free, be generous, be at Obica...after dusk. Life is good. Five stars where five stars is obtainable and rounding is upward.
Loved it. Food was great and had a wonderful time. We sat out back and felt like it was our own private restaurant.
Thankfully one of the few restaurants that does not use garlic or have garlic in the kitchen.Having a garlic allergy is always challenging and of concern.
Obica is a great space in a fun area. Beautiful bar area in back with a view of the city. Great people-watching in front on Sunset Blvd. Food is good, particularly the mozzarella and salumi sampler to share with a group. The eggplant parmigiana and the lasagna were excellent, mushroom pizza was just ok.
However, service was appalling. We watched in shock as a waiter spilled an entire pizza on a man at the table next to us, which knocked the beverages across the table. There was barely an apology!! Later, one of my dining companions mentioned he smelled marijuana on both the male server who had dropped the pizza and on the female server who was supposedly our waitress, but who pretty much disappeared for the bulk of our meal. Despite repeated (5 or 6) requests, we had difficulty getting the water refills and we ended up ordering less than planned because no server was around and we had to leave for the show. An item ordered "on the side" didn't arrive until after we had finished the rest of the item. We were dining early, pre-theater, so the restaurant was not crowded. This type of service should not have happened.
Next time, we'll go to Petit Trois a couple of doors down!
I've eaten here many times and realize that this experience is a negative stand out and not the norm, but I felt very disappointed in the experience.
We ordered the Mozzarella appetizer which came with a smoked mozzarella in lieu of the ricotta. They were out of ricotta, which is fine but wasn't explained to us at the time and the smoked mozzarella is rough on the palette and not the one which should be duplicated in the absence of ricotta. They were able to switch this out for another cheese and it was fine.
Before I could finish my sentence ordering my main dish, the waitress walked away. Just gave a totally bad vibe. Our food came out - gluten free pasta - and both dishes were severely undercooked. My boyfriend had to get up to get the waitress's attention and she seemed angry at us when she took our food away. It was clearly just heated somehow and came back, still a little tough and under done but we were both really hungry and just ate it.
The check came and she had discounted $6 from our tab. Given how rude she had been the entire evening, we just quickly paid and left.
Unsure what the deal was, as I've never had a poor experience here in the past, but this was just through and through a really bad experience.
I'm not alone in experiencing ridiculously slow service here. To be fair to our waitress, she was the only one waiting on over 10 tables at lunchtime. Food was poor. Wont be back for lunch. Their Happy Hour however has always been fun, the small apps great and the service prompt. Weird.
Food is good but service is slow and inconsistent, albeit friendly.
I was not impressed with the food, specifically the burrata cheese was not as good as others I’ve had.
The food was absolutely amazing. Everything was fresh and flavorful.
Amazing dining experience, owner manager was incredibly warm and inviting made us feel as we where having dinner in his home, all staff was great and food was superb .
Food took forever to come out. Food ordered missing ingredients - looks like the kitchen was cutting corners. Server never got what we asked for and basically ignored us until it was time to pay. Saw the same thing happen at the table next to me. Nice location at Sunset Plaza, but I doubt they’re going to be around much longer with this level of service and overall confusion.
Not what I expected. Service was slow even tho the restaurant wasn't full - when I saw how empty it was I knew it was a red flag. The bruschetta looked like it was made by a twelve year old, came on the same bread as the house loaf that they give you for free, and was super small. The fried mozzarella balls were so good, basically cheese sticks for 15 bucks. Main was a steak which was good but took forever. Michael the front of house was nice and took care of a wandering drunk guy who approached our table. The espresso was pretty much a drop - smallest one I've ever seen...what is this a espresso for ants? Desert also the smallest portions I've ever seen, the puff pastry was super tough. I had to use a knife. Would not go back.
Great place. Spencer is always helpful and friendly.
Simple but very tasty Italian food based on fresh ingredients, expertly prepared. I had a superb selection of mozarella and other appetizers, followed by a truffle pizza which was excellent, accompanied by a bottle of Rosso di Montalcino. The Tiramisu was one of the best I have had in Los Angeles. The rest of the table including three children also enjoyed the food very much.
Food is always good and the location is perfect. Service may be slow.
Food is always good, server was good but restaurant is clearly understaffed as always.
Great place for Sunset Plaza. The Italian is great for LA. Highly recommend Awesome sidewalk scene to watch.
Delicious, simple, Fresh❣️
Lasagne Verde was full of flavor! Tony provided outstanding service.
Food. Pizza. Dessert. Drink all very good. Parking easy. Pizza outstanding. Parm and mozzarella unbelievable
Love the Obica Mozzarella bar!
the menu is amazing and if you are a mozzarella lover, this is heaven!
Very average Italian. One of the oddest and blandest pizza crusts I've ever had.
Fantastic starter plate for the table.
This is one of the most beautiful outdoor dining in Weho....I was very happy with the Cod in tomato and olives, perfectly spiced and fresh. Amazing! however the Tuna "salad" was a disappointment. a few specks of tuna on a GIANT bed of cous cous. Not very tasty. the nice waiter tried to make it better by bringing a Side of salad....very sweet and helped improve the dish to actually be a "salad". but the dish needs a lot of work before putting on the menu....Far too "carby" in it's current incarnation.
I put in for the 5 PM for the 1000 points. They canceled us even though we were there and when I called back and they put it in for 7:30 PM I only got 100 points.
The food was excellent and the owner was there and very nice. We live around the corner, so we really like this place.
Great fresh, authentic Italian food, with fantastic service. I have a nut allergy and they were very attentive to that. Highly recommend.
Always good food and real Italian food without garlic Thank God!
Food was good but service was super slow. Not sure if they were short staffed but the bartender was also our server and we had a large party . Definitely liked the atmosphere but the service was subpar
Truly terrible food and slow service. Worst Italian in years!
Service was slow, but they apologized and made up for it with a free glass of wine. What’s not to like! Great view. Good food.
Friendly staff and management
Good food and nice atmosphere. Nice Italian wines.
Sunset Plaza was perfect for sitting outside and enjoying the wonderful pizza and pastas! Service was amazing and wine fantastic!
Waited 45 mins for squid pasta that they didnt have. Told us it was sold out. The other pasta was poorly cooked and came out terribly. Brought guests here for a special occasion and I was so embarrassed they left hungry. Never coming here again.
Love the great ingredients, care and simplicity of the great food.
Food was delicious (highly recommend the burrata as an appetizer & lasagna as a main course)
Service was excellent.
We went on a Sunday evening, so pretty much had the place to ourselves.
Service was lacking. Our waiter did not know to do simple things like ask to refill our drinks when they were empty or clean up after we ate or come check on us to see if we wanted something more. He never asked my husband and I if we wanted any more alcohol when our glasses were empty. The place was packed and it seemed like he was the only waiter working. Clearly management should have had more staff working. When the owner came to speak to us , I told him the problem and then he took over serving us. In the end, he should have given us something of a discount on our tab. He just offered us a limo cello which we nicely declined. The food was excellent so for that we would recommend it but they need to improve their wait staff or they won't last long on the sunset strip.
Great experience. Happily surprised. The manager was so pleasant... a true Italian experience.
