Obikà Review

If you've ever wanted to take in a "mozzarella bar," here's your chance. Mozzarella is featured here much like sushi bars showcase fresh fish—even the decor is modern Japanese minimalism–meets–ancient Roman grandeur. The cheese, in all its varieties, is the focus of the dishes: there's the familiar cow's milk, the delectable water buffalo milk varieties from the Campagnia region, and the sinfully rich burrata from Puglia (a fresh cow's milk mozzarella encasing a creamy center of unspun mozzarella curds and fresh cream). They're all served with various accompanying cured meats, vegetables, sauces, and breads. An outdoor deck is a great spot for dining alfresco. Also visit the new, super-central smaller location in Campo de'Fiori (corner of Via dei Baullari, 06/68802366) and the one in posh Parioli (Via Guido d'Arezzo 49, 06/685344184). Indeed, the concept has been such a success that other locations recently opened in cities from Florence and Istanbul to midtown Manhattan and L.A.

    Here It Is!

    We selected the mozzarella and the cured meat platters from the tasting ... truly delectable.
