Description: Obica Mozzarella Bar is a casual and contemporary Italian restaurant. With its friendly welcoming atmosphere, its warm and bright design, Obica proposes a genuine Italian dining experience centered on the freshest Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP from Italy, fresh homemade pasta and other authentic products from Italy’s rich regional heritage. Started in Italy in 2004, today Obica has restaurants in international gateway cities such as Rome, Milan, Florence, London, New York, Tokyo and Los Angeles, where it continues to delight fans of fine Italian food wherever it opens. Obica brings classic and regional Italian cuisine to the new levels of taste of contemporary gourmets. The focus is on the ingredients: fresh, organic local produce paired with a curated selection of imported Italian artisanal specialties. Our light cooking methods respect the quality of these ingredients, combining them in dishes which delight the eyes as well as the taste buds. Obica offers a sommelier-curated selection of more than 100 wine labels from the most interesting Italian producers; at the bar our cocktail program reflects the same values as our kitchen: the quality of ingredients first and foremost. The best spirits are mixed with fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables; syrups, infusions and juices are homemade daily.

After almost one week of immersion into US food the kids were in need of an Italian meal and by chance we came across this place, that i had known by its original opening in rome. I have to say everything was made to a very good standard (pasta cacio e pepe, pizza with mozzarella di bufala and mozzarella and prosciutto crudo were almost as you’d find in italy). Staff was nice and attentive - some of them are italian - bill a bit on the high side but that’s santa monica...... more than recommended if looking for true italian food.

The food is excellent , very much in the style of some of the best restaurants in Italy. The pizza has a very thin crust with toppings as you wish. The fish and salads are prepared in the best of Northern Italy's style. The service is friendly and efficient and the ambience is simple but a great backdrop for a great dining experience.

Our son found this gem while we were visiting Los Angeles. From the moment we entered the restaurant, we were surrounded by unbelievable assistance from the managing partner and his associates. He carefully orchestrated our dining experience from selecting an amazing wine to planning hors d'oeuvres, to our main courses. Raimondo was amazing and his choices for everything were spot on. He asked all the right questions to ensure that we were ordering everything we would love! And we did! Best meal during our 10 day stay in LA! I wish he would open one in Detroit!!!

The service here is the best! The food is incredible... just everything we had was amazing! My favorite was the dessert. Omg so good. Their back patio is so cute. When it gets cool they just seal it up and you still feel like you’re outside but you’re warm. It’s awesome. A+++
