Obicà Mozzarella Bar St Paul's

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The fifth London location for Silvio Ursini’s ‘mozzarella bar’ chain.
Canary Wharf, Fitzrovia, Soho and South Kensington all have one – so it’s about time the lawyers of Ludgate got a branch of the leading international chain of ‘mozzarella bars’. First opening in Rome as Obicà more than a decade ago, the restaurants have spread as far as LA and Japan, serving buffalo mozzarella (imported from Campania) and other Italian staples from an open kitchen in a slick, modern room. But it’s tough to square expansion with authenticity and quality, and that balance in this new St Paul’s branch is a little off.
No complaints about the cheese: a bursting burrata and a lovely smoked mozzarella, paired with nutty caponata and some excellent salumi. The ostentatiously palm-stretched pizza dough deserves a big hand.
