Obicà means "Here it is!"
In the dialect of my home town of Naples, this is how we describe something that’s happening right before your eyes, like a freshly made Mozzarella, still dripping from its brine and ready to be eaten there and then.
Silvio Ursini, Founder
The first Obicà Mozzarella Bar in the world was opened in May 2004 in Rome, from an idea of Silvio Ursini, who is still the President of the Group.
The New York Times stated Obicà as “Rome's and probably history's first Mozzarella Bar”.
From 2004, Obicà opened locations in Europe, United States and Japan, and today has 23 restaurants in international gateway cities: from Milan to Palermo, from London to Los Angeles and Tokyo.
In 2017 Obicà has developed around the Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP, the concept of Food to share, a selection of small and bigger plates to share with friends and family.
