Obicà Mozzarella Bar, Pizza e Cucina

This Poland Street branch of the Obica group is one of four currently in London. It's a chain specialising in authentic Italian dishes and buffalo mozzarella - a cheese they source direct from Campania, and one that makes its way to Obica's plates within 48 hours. 

It can be sampled at the mozzarella bar, where diners can choose from four different varieties as well as bocconcini balls or a kilo of the stuff on its own - served with basil pesto, sun-dried tomato pesto and focaccia. They recommend you pair it with small plates, such as prosciutto, salami, olive oil cured tuna or caponata alla Siciliana - a dish of aubergine, pine nuts, almonds, raisins, capers and vinegar.

Larger dishes include lasagne, tagliolini with black truffles from San Miniato, pappardelle with a Tuscan sausage ragu and pizzas, such as a margherita or one topped with n'duja and burrata, made with stone-ground Petra flour. Desserts range from tiramisu and torta di Capri to caramelised peach with a biscuit crumble and a strawberry cheesecake made with ricotta di bufala.

This review is for the Poland Street location. The dining room area is nice, quieter than the loud bar area when you walk in, with dimmer lighting. The waiter came over after a bit and I was immediately alarmed he didn't have a notepad for our various orders. My fears were confirmed. He forgot my cocktail- the deliciously dangerous Stiletto- and we had to remind him. My husband got the smoked mozzarella and I got the mozzarella with truffles. My husband liked his but found the taste overpowering after a bit. I LOOOOOOVVVEEEDDD my mozz and I think I could have died and gone to heaven. I also got the pumpkin soup which sounded enticing- bits of amaretto biscuit with it, etc. It was just .... OK. The biscuit was the best part sadly =/ with the soup being flavourless. Oh and the waiter sure enough forgot to get me the caponata side I also ordered. At that point I was full so I guess it was all well but if he has just had a damn notepad and wrote it down, he could have gotten a tip. I would return only for the truffled mozz.
